I love photos. More to the point, I love printed photos. I love the tangible manifestation of my memories – from holidays, special occasions and so on.
I have wanted to try Origrami for a long time. Australian based husband and wife team, Jeff and Betsy, offer the opportunity to turn your Instagram photos into beautiful square prints on high quality matt paper.
There are a number of options for printing, from squareprints (which is what I chose) and retroprints (like Polaroids with the white space at the bottom – I am choosing this next time!), to cards and magnets.
Instagram is by far and away my favourite social media channel – I could spend many happy hours trawling through the beautiful images posted. But having them confined to my phone has always been a draw back. Now that I can print them too, I’m perfectly content.
I just have to find somewhere to display the prints now…
