So the other week I shared my favorite photo app, Hipstamatic, for getting those cool, vintage looking photos. If you've downloaded the app, are you loving it? If so, then you've probably started wondering how to get all these awesome pictures from your phone to your hands. Enter Postal Pix.
Postal Pix is a free app that allows you to select photos from your phone and then ships the prints directly to your door within a few days. There's a printing option through the Hipstamatic app, but the prices are much higher than Postal Pix. I like this option since it's hard to find a place to actually print the 4x4 size photos that Hipstamatic and other apps, like Instagram, produce. You can also print traditional 4x6 pictures and collages, too. Bonus!
App Name: Postal Pix
Description: Lets you order real photo prints of pictures from your phone.
Available: iPhone and Android
Review: Awesome sauce! I feel the prices are fairly reasonable. Each 4x4 print is $.29 + shipping. That's a little more than Target or Walmart, but the easy process of printing the 4x4 size directly from your phone makes it worth it.
I usually print some off every few months in a large quantity to save on shipping. I have consistently been impressed with the prints and speediness of delivery.
So once you get your prints in your hands, what do you do with them? I've collected quite a few over the past few years and am still trying to find ways to display them that doesn't involve storing them all in a box in the closet.
For the majority of the prints, I just stack them in one of these cute little containers. I found this peach one at Target a few years ago. I like the idea that they're put away, but also available if someone wants to flip through them.
My favorite display option has been this photo tree, though. I talked more about it here. It was so easy to make. We found a few tree branches in our backyard and painted them. Then I just used clothespins to hang up the photos. It's an easy way to have a revolving display of up to date photos in our house.
Do you have any photo printing apps you like? What's your favorite way to display photos in your home?
