Do You Print Your Photos?

In this day of digital photos does anyone still print photos? I remember the era of not knowing what you’ve photographed until you took your film to somewhere like Jessops and getting it developed! I remember the excitinment of then picking up those photos and browsing through them! Ahh happy days!

When Taid died I took all his photos with me with the intention of scanning them in so we’d always have a record of them. It’s amazing the photos I’ve seen in his collection. This is one of my favourites – me with Taid & Jimmy. (And as it happens it would have been Taid’s birthday today – Penblwydd Hapus Taid!)

What I’m currently doing is printing 95 photos out each month for free! How? Well I’ll tell you how! I’ve downloaded two apps – the Snapfish app and the Freeprints app to my phone and you get 50 and 45 free prints respectively. Here’s a brief rundown of both apps…

Snapfish & FreePrints

Snapfish App

~ 50 free prints per month
~ £2.99 postage
~ Can order more than one copy of each photo

Freeprints App

~ 45 free prints per month
~ £3.99 postage
~ The photos from this app are slightly better quality than the Snapfish app but there isn’t much in it.
~ Higher postage than Snapfish app
~ Can only order 1 copy of each photo

So what on earth do I do with all these photos? Well I’m trying to do as Taid did and mark on the back of each photo what the photos are before putting them into albums. Hubby bought me two gorgeous albums for my birthday but I haven’t started filling them yet.

I want to buy a red photo album to put all the Christmas photos in. I also want an album for our Malta holiday snaps and some for the girls’ first birthdays. But I can’t decide which ones I would like! I have setup an Amazon wishlist so I can just keep adding ones I like to it! Here’s some of my favourites.

Aren’t they gorgeous! As you can see, I can’t resist the baby photo albums!

Well I best get back to sorting my photos out since I’ll have another 95 of them land through my letterbox this month!

Do you print out photos or do you just keep digital copies?

    I’ll have to check out these apps. I definitely need to get better about printing my photos.

      I was so pleased to come across these apps I must admit. Not sure what the availability of free prints are in Canada though

    I don’t remember the last time I printed any photos! I do worry about then somehow being deleted though, so I think I might have to do some soon or a photo book!

      Tesco usually have good deals on photo books. If you’re computer savvy enough then give their photo book editor a try. I got bored of it in the end though! x

    I haven’t had any photos printed for SO long, but I really want to get some of our WDW holiday snaps printed to put in a photo frame. Or just pictures of me and Dan to have around our room- he lives with me and my family and it would be nice to make our room seem a bit more like it belongs to both of us rather than just me!

    I’ll definitely look into these apps, thank you for the recommendations! 😀 xx

      Yes get some of your WDW ones of you & Dan printed! I’ve just printed a couple of our WDW ones – hubby & I with Mike & Sulley and with Minnie Mouse (“Minnie Mawww”) to put up in Little Miss’ room. x

    I haven’t printed any out – they’re all kept on my iMac. But I do print them off to put photo’s on the wall – love doing this 🙂 Ahhh lovely post xx

      This is where we differ – we have no photos up on the walls! I can’t decide on how we’re going to do it – canvas prints of a photo frame wall. x

    That is such a great idea. I will try the apps, I should print more photos. Thanks for sharing xx

      You’re most welcome! I’ve been busy writing on the back of my photos where they were taken etc but I still haven’t put them in albums! x
