Today I wanted to share just a couple of my favorite online vendors – for, you know, all your lovely digital files! There are so many options on the web these days, but there are just a few that I dig in terms of aesthetic, ease, and quality.
GIFT PRINTS AND FRAMES
AU is a the hipster creative’s go-to. The company pairs a an airy aesthetic with simple, no fuss products. I love that they used recycled paper for their prints, and their clean-cut wooden frames allow your images to stand out on the wall. They also have some fun gift ideas, like funky calendars. Sometimes making a book can be tricky, but the output will be aesthetically pleasing, and I enjoy their anthology approach.
Frameology has wide selection of gift frames – from simple wooden frames to silver and gold plated. Prices range quite a bit too, so this is my go-to for beautiful mantle frame gifts for family during the holidays! Their interface is also super user-friendly, allowing you to preview your image in different frames.
MILK is my go-to for AMAZING DIY album-making. It’s as simple as that. You won’t need any other, or me.. for that matter.. any longer! People will think a professional made it. They also have a variety of choices, but all will look clean, with beautiful natural looking fabrics and finishes and a clean design aesthetic.
My go-to for holiday cards and announcement cards like graduation and newborn. Beautiful paper and on-point designs. I keep all my addresses stored and have them printed to shave a ton of time off this usually time-consuming tradition that comes at the busiest time of year! They also have inspiring yet affordable artwork and also a new site dedicated to all things kids, called Little Mint (cute, right?).
I have used Paperless Post for ages as I love the idea of using less paper products AND getting out invitations to events quickly and easily. Another perk is the ability to keep note on who has received your invitations, organize rsvps, send reminders, and include a lot of information available for your guests. And their designs are just so cute!
That’s it folks! Hope you enjoy getting your beautiful photos made into something you’re proud to share and cherish at home : )
