There are only a couple of things that can keep me up at night…to much caffeine, a disturbing episode of 20/20, or thoughts of all of my undeveloped photos. When I start mentally going over the thousands of photos that sit on my computer and phone I get a pit in my stomach. So many good memories jus trapped in cyberland. I used to print everything and fill photo albums but that just feels so dated now. I want a cooler way to showcase our memories so I was ecstatic when the people from SnapBox reached out about a collaboration. Their business philosophy hits the nail on the head for me…
At SnapBox, we think memories should be more than just the images in your Facebook albums or Instagram feed. They should be real things you can hold, touch, and feel so we’re here to help bring your most memorable moments to life.
SnapBox is a photo printing site but also offers numerous high-quality products like posters, canvases, framed art, and even pillows! Their prices are so reasonable and I can’t say enough about their customer service. In all of my dealings they were so friendly and helpful!
So back to my late-night worrying…as much as I wanted to post all about my photo organizing and printing I figured that might be pretty boring. Instead I thought it would be fun to use some of their peel-and-stick fabric posters in a client’s playroom. We had a giant wall to cover and these posters come in a variety of sizes. Even better is that you can just directly link to your Facebook and Instagram sites to retrieve photos so my client was able to upload in minutes. Once they arrived (super quick, BTW!) we used the trusty eyeball method and got to work…
Here is the space before:
Application is really easy…you just wipe your wall clean with a damp cloth, peel the poster and stick. We used a credit card to push out any bubbles.
How great to be able to look at all of these great memories! Using these oversized posters were a much better and more personalized alternative to wallpaper or paint.
This is one of those areas that could easily end up as just “dead space.” but by using their photos we quickly turned it into a fun area. The kids love seeing their own faces and memories on the wall.
With that as a backdrop most of the work was done so we just added in some bright accessories to complete the space.
This shade was so simple: just about a 1/2 yard of fabric and some fabric glue.
I folded, glued, and slipped it on a tension rod.
I decided to leave the unfinished end for the bottom hem because it looked like mini fringe!
I am so excited for my clients and even more excited for myself now that I know about this convenient way to actually do something with all of those photos I take on a daily basis!
Make sure to follow SnapBox on Instagram also as they are always posting new inspiration!
