With Instagram, Facebook & Twitter taking precedence of photo albums I find myself uploading hundreds of photos a year onto an online library but never take the time to print them and put them into photo albums. When I was younger there was something so exciting about waiting for your photos to come back from being printed and looking at them years later to remember the great memories that you had. It's incredibly sad that we won't have what we had as we were younger as everything is online these days. Despite the ever advancement in digital technology, I still like to have a paper image in my hands that I can look at, and it's even more special than it ever used to be. That's why I jumped at the chance of having some of my Instagram snaps being printed by Cheerz! I picked their Christmas Cheerz Box* at £12.95 which as you can see comes beautifully wrapped, it was a super special early Christmas present and if you agree with all of my thoughts about how we don't take the time to cherish paper prints these days then you might be interested in Cheerz printing your pictures too!
The whole process of picking the photos for my Cheerz box was incredibly easy. You can select photos from all of your digital channels, Instagram, Facebook, Google + etc. Depending on the option you choose it will tell you how many photos you're limited to. The Cheerz box lets you add 30 photos which is a lot more than it seems and it took me a while to pick out my favourite ones! The Polaroid snaps also give you the option to add a caption to the bottom of each photo which I think is a lovely touch, especially if you want to add a funny caption, quote or memory! After you've picked your images and written your captions you're done - it really is as easy as that!
As you can see the Cheerz box came beautifully wrapped and even came with a selection of gift tags to attach to the box - this really is the perfect Christmas gift! There's nothing more special than giving someone a selection of photographs that really do last forever.
I was so impressed with the quality of these photos and I just love the Polaroid style of these prints, perfect for all those who are also wishing they owned their own Instax mini camera but can't justify the cost and for the expensive films! I love my little selection of images of my memories across the last year, printing my pictures is definitely something I'm going to do a lot more often from now on as the thought of losing all of my images on Facebook one day really would be like erasing my life!
The Christmas Cheerz box is the most perfect Christmas present that is thoughtful, beautiful and cute!! Cheerz also do a selection of other products including magnets, photo albums and strip photos. As Cheerz say 'One photo in your hand is worth 1,000 photos online'... and I couldn't agree with them more!
You can also order your own Cheerz box whether for yourself or for a Christmas present and get £4 off with every order over £8, simply enter code: NICSAP at the checkout!
What do you think of this Cheerz Christmas box? Do you keep all of your photos online too? Do you like having printed photos to look back on?
