So we’ve gone digital. And social. And we click shutters more than ever. But other than your device….how do you display your memories and favourite family moments? I’m still new to instagram – I was on the last train y’all. But, I’m catching up and I really like it for sharing photos and seeing what my family and friends are sharing. That said, I’m still old-fashioned and I’ll always have the desire to print, frame, hang, and fill albums with pictures. I like the physical feeling of photographs in my hand and in my home.
That love of printing is how I stumbled upon Pic Pack, a company founded by Thomas Albrecht, making high-quality photo magnets printed using your instagram photos (or uploaded pictures) – perfect! My new love of instagram, combined with my old love of printing photos – yes, that works for me!
How did this stroke of genius come about? Well here’s the story….
Around Christmas 2010 Thomas’ daughter got some magnets as an advertising gift and asked why she couldn’t have them with her own pictures… Why not? Since Thomas is an addicted Instagram user and his day job is running a printing company, he decided to play around with magnets and experiment on how to produce them. To fulfill the mission — offer high quality magnets for everybody — Tadas and Jakob joined the fun and created getpicpack.com.
I thought it would be fun to create a family portrait collection, so over the past few weeks I’ve featured pictures of my fam – old and new – on instagram. When it was time to create my magnets, I just signed into my Pic Pack account, connected my instagram and all my photographs were there for me to choose from. I made my order and in less than a week, my magnets arrived from Germany. Because, yes they ship worldwide!
Honestly, I am just so happy with my new fridge magnets – not just because of their quality and their ability to actually hold Aiden’s heavily glued construction paper crafts, but also because they are pics of our family for us to see daily. What can I say, we love ’em.
