The frame is still my favorite. But there are other options. And I’m warming up to them.
A. Mural it! -It’s a bit of a commitment. When done well, it’s super rad. There are several companies that provide the custom mural option for your home. I’ve narrowed it down to two. Haven’t decided which one I’ll go with but that might be the easy decision as choosing the “perfect” image might take more time. It’s going to be front and center so you might want to make sure you can live with it in that capacity. Go big or go home, right?
B. Book it! – This might be my favorite. It’s sort of your own self-published coffee table book. Step one, compile a large group of photos. Step two, upload your photos online and design your layout. Viewing your images imprinted in a book seems like the best way to pay homage to those pics you want to keep forever. The problem sometimes lies in the time to do step one and step two. Though with an hour (or two or three) it’s a doable project. I’ve used Blurb over and over again for personal projects. Their website provides great contemporary (and classic) templates for layout options. If you sign up for their newsletter, almost monthly you’ll get a discount code. Sweet. Oh yeah, and we do that here too! That is, make books but with a super secret book maker. If you want to bypass all those steps above, let us know and we got it!
C. Publish it! – Archiving your photos online definitely tops the list for sharing photos with friends and family. The private sharing options are ideal if you want to keep your pics close to a special set group of people.
If you have any other options, please send them along. For now, I’ve personally only used Blurb. Will be exploring all above options in the next few months. Many projects ahead.
