When I first learnt about photo-printing services that were able to print photos directly from your social media, including Instagram, I felt no great desperation to get involved. Speaking as a scrapbooker, I've documented most photos/events from a very young age; along with various other bits and pieces, photos from everywhere congregate in between those generous black pages. Photos from everywhere... except Instagram. It dawned on me when Cheerz got in contact that not one of my quick snaps of new shoes or beautiful views had made it into my albums! A brief frenzied-panic followed that saw me frantically flipping through the pages of my scrapbooks searching for Instagram shots (just imagine that scene for a moment, it wasn't pretty), before I selected the Cheerz Big Fat Box c/o from their website and swiftly moved from panic-stricken to smug.
Although I had initially intended on emptying out the photos and placing them in my albums, that idea quickly changed when I accepted delivery and laid eyes on the stylish design of the box. Call me an aesthete, but this turquoise box is too attractive not to display on a shelf!
There are various products available on the website, each offering different ways of having your photos both printed and displayed; strips, posters, magnets and more. However, I opted for the Big Fat Box because it enabled me to print 100 (or 200) photos of my choosing from my Instagram account - the more, the merrier! I selected my favourite images uploaded to my account over the past year and eagerly awaited their arrival. The colour of each image is accurate to that of which is shown on Instagram and the ability to add captions to each snap was a fun addition; the chance of me forgetting where a photo was taken has been drastically reduced!
Photos can be printed from: Computer, Instagram, Facebook, Google+, Flickr and Dropbox.
As you can tell, I'm now a huge fan of Cheerz; everything about the service has impressed me. The Big Fat Box is now sitting proudly on my shelf, packed full with my Instagram snaps ready for me to browse through and reminisce over at any given time. Perfect!
