Turning Digital Photos Into Prints With Pictli

Tuesday, June 30, 2015
I can clearly recall the moment my mom introduced me to the Kodak Disc Camera. If you were a child of the 80s, you clearly know what I am talking about it. My mom was in love with her disc camera, and I soon followed in her footsteps. I fell in love with taking pictures and capturing memories. The Kodak Disc Camera is long gone, but I still love snapping away and preserving the good times.

In today's digital world, it's easy for photos to become lost in a black hole on our phones and computers. We keep adding to the collection, but if you are anything like I am, you're not doing anything with the photos except for an occasional post on Facebook.

I went in search of a service (preferably online) that could take my favorite photos and frame them for me at a reasonable cost.  I wanted high quality prints in frames that made a statement without breaking the bank. I found sites that printed your photos. I found sites where you could purchase framed prints, and finally I found just what I was looking for when I came across Pictli.

PIctli is an online service that allows you to upload your own pictures from either Facebook, Instagram, or your hard drive, choose a beautiful frame, have them printed, framed, and delivered to your doorstep by Pictli. I had the chance to try the service courtesy of Pictli. I have so many photos on my computer, on Facebook, on Instagram that I would LOVE to have framed. So, this offer from Pictli came at the perfect time.

I chose a photo that I had taken on a trip to San Diego with my husband several years ago. The photo perfectly captures the essence of southern California, and I wanted to have a photo that would always remind me of our getaway as well as one of my favorite places.

The upload and ordering processes were seamless, and you can scroll the frames to see which one looks best when paired with your photo before you make your final decision. Pictli makes it easy to send the framed photo to yourself or you can choose to send it as a gift. Although this time, I chose a print for myself, I will definitely be using Pictli to send gifts. Everyone loves a framed print, no?

Once my order was placed, I waited patiently for the final product to arrive. And when it did, I thought it was almost too cute to open.

But I opened it, because, of course, I couldn't wait to see the finished product! I placed it on a bookshelf in my office where I can gaze at it daily.

Try Pictli for yourself. From now through the end of July, save 20% off your order when you use the code SH1507. To get started creating the perfect framed print, visit Pictli. Each framed photo costs $15 plus shipping.

Disclosure: I received a gift code to purchase a Pictli print. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
