Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to have your Instagram or phone photos developed and held in your hands?
Then you’ll love to know about the Printic App, which does exactly this and more!
Printic, printing one memory at a time…
You can find it on Google Play for Andriod users.
You can also find it on iTunes, for Apple users.
This is how the Printic app looks like on my screen!
When you open the app, you get to choose all kinds of prints possible – books, calenders or just regular prints!
I selected “Create Awesome Photo Prints”!
So you’ll be directed to your albums for selection. Here’s mine!
Then you get to select how many copies you want, crop the photo, change the background colour, edit and include the text. See the black bar below. Have you read about my Watsons on Wheels event here?
Here’s my text and my chosen font.
Then you select who you want to send the prints too. I blurred out my address. 😛
2 Printics will cost SGD$3.68, which is $1.84 per piece!
It would be however, a lot more worth it to buy the credits.
5opc Starter Pack for US$26.40 would be about SGD$33, which works out to $0.66 per piece!
My prints came in a double envelope. A Printic orange envelope within a stamped white envelope.
Here are my prints! Check out the sample print I did above, in the bottom left corner. 😉
Overall I find this Printic App very cool, easy to navigate (fool proof) and convenient. Delivery took less than 1 week to arrive. For this review, I intentionally picked various background colours to show you how the black, red and yellow backgrounds would look like!
Also, as a word of advice, emoticons DON’T show up. They become weird symbols. So don’t use emoticons.
The quality of the prints are also really good. It’s glossy and in high resolution. Of course, you have to use good resolution and not blur photos in your phone to begin with. 🙂 Perhaps my only complaint is that the fonts when printed, appear bigger than they are on screen.
I would recommend this app to everyone to mail a photo of you and your loved one / friend to surprise them on their birthday or on a special occasion. Especially if they are staying abroad or away from you. A thought and gesture like that will be sure to melt their heart! 😉 Just be sure to send it at least 10 days in advance, so that you know it will reach on time.
If you’re a new user, download the app for free, use the code “MAILLOVE” and receive 2 free prints!
You will have to input the code on the top left corner of the app’s home screen, under coupon.
Lastly, you can use these prints to decorate your room, office or kitchen. Here’s some inspiration:
Pegged to a bird cage wire frame. Photo from here.
Photos pegged to lines coming down from a steel bar. Photo from here.
Or a simple “laundry line” concept on the wall. Photo from here.
Or maybe in a modern & clean vertical line. Photo from here.
What about as a wreath? Photo from here.
Or in neatly arranged photo frames? Photo from here.
Last but not the least in an epic and romantic heart shape as a grand gesture. Photo from here.
You’re welcome for the ideas. 😉
Thanks Printic for the prints!
