Most of us bloggers are big fans of photography and I for one really enjoy taking pictures and practising my shots and editing skills. Instagram is my favourite social media platform and I love sharing my iPhone or Olympus PEN photos there, but I sometimes feel nostalgic for the good old days taking a roll of film down to Jessops to be developed, or spending my Saturday afternoons in the photo booth in Miss Selfridge with my friends (you did that too, right!?) I actually have hardly any photos around my home now as I’m just never sure of how the best way to print them out from my online libraries. Thankfully Cheerz* got in touch to tell me about their photo printing service which allows you to upload pics directly from Instagram or your computer and be printed in a variety of different formats. They invited me to create my own Little Square picture collage and I absolutely ADORE IT!
The Cheerz website is super easy to use – you just choose what product you want to order and then either log in to your Instagram account or upload the pictures you want to use from your computer. The hardest part is deciding what pictures to include! The Little Square allows you to have one large photo or four smaller squares, which is what I decided on. Simply pick the photos you want to use and you can then play around with the order which they appear in the grid, click save and you’re done! The only thing I did find annoying was you can’t zoom in to see how the pictures actually look. Sometimes with editing, pictures can become a little grainy or distorted, and I was a little nervous this would show on the printed images. It didn’t though and they looked absolutely perfect!
I chose four of my favourite recent photos – two of Tony and I together and two pretty scenic shots. The top left is us celebrating his 30th birthday in Cambridge, top right is a beautiful view of the Turkish sea from our holiday in October, bottom left is a photo from a day out in Brighton in the summer and bottom right is Tony and I at our friends wedding last year. I thought the blue / green colours in each picture complimented each other well and stood out really nicely against the white frame (you can also pick a brown or red frame too if that’s more your style).
My parcel arrived really quickly and was delivered by courier so you could track its progress and rearrange the time slot if needed. It was packaged really well and also included a cute Christmas card from the Cheerz team, and some gift labels should you be giving the frame to a friend, which I thought were really nice touches.
I’m so impressed with my Cheerz Little Square photo frame and will definitely be ordering a couple more – they’re such a great, no hassle way of displaying your photos in a really nice way, and at only £19.95 are really good value too. If you want to add more photos, you can also create a Large Square picture frame collage and even a Poster sized one, as well as being able to print your photos to magnets, picture strips and coasters.
*Thanks so much to Cheerz for inviting me to try out their lovely Little Square photo frame. All thoughts are honest and my own. For more information please see my Disclaimer Page.
