Ever since I have been able to use a camera, I have loved taking photos. I love capturing photographs of people, places and whatever pretty thing catches my eye. It wouldn’t be difficult to describe me as snap happy and I am more often found behind the camera than posing in front of one. Since becoming a Mum I have got literally thousands of photographs stored on my phone and laptop, I am sure lots of you parents out there can relate. When the lovely team at Wall Snaps contacted me asking if I wanted to review some of their products obviously I said yes, what a perfect excuse to finally get some of my photos off my phone and out on display.
Wall Snaps are an online photo printing service that help you create beautiful personalised wall art. You can get all your beautiful shots in canvas form or you can choose a customisable frame option or have a large poster-like print out to frame yourself at a later date.
The walls in my house are covered in photos of Leo when he was a baby but there is not a single one of him as a toddler on display. When you have children you take photographs of them nearly every day, pretty much everything they do is adorable/heart warming and needs to be captured in a photo that can be cherished forever. Unfortunately, as our children grow the busier we become and the less time we have to dedicate to creating pretty family wall art. That is where Wall Snaps can help.
|What could it be?|
|A lovely photo from a lovely day. Can’t wait to frame it.|
It was difficult to decide on what picture of Leo to get printed but in the end I went for one from our fruit picking day out from last summer. It was such a beautiful day and one I often find myself fondly remembering, Leo was so happy running around in the sunshine and eating strawberries until his whole face was red. I ordered this print in the poster style large print (£14.99) and will be getting it framed when the bank balance allows it. Considering the original photo is one taken on my pretty rubbish camera phone, I am surprisingly pleased with the quality. The picture is 42cm x 52cm and definitely catches your eye when on display on the wall. I absolutely love it and every time I look at it I will be reminded of that beautiful sunny day, in a field over looking the sea picking berries with my family.
|One of my favourite pictures of Oli and I.|
Do you ever find you have hundreds of photographs of your children but you struggle to find one of you and your other half together? When you are so busy snapping away with your toddler, if can be easy to forget to share a photo with your partner too. After all, you will be sad if you have no pictures of the two of you together to look back on it the future. So, as well as the poster print of Leo I also decided to get one of my favourite recent pictures of Oli and I printed on to a canvas. Wall Snaps print your photos onto cotton canvas‘ and they are available in a range of sizes, starting at £19.99. I ordered a 20.3cm x 20.3cm square canvas, I am really pleased with the picture quality as, again, this is a photo that was just taken on a camera phone. It is not very big so won’t look it’s best hanging lonely on a wall. However, stick it up with a collection of 3 or 4 other small canvas prints and it would make a really pretty feature on a wall in your home. My canvas is currently perched on the windowsill in the kitchen, waiting for me to find the perfect place to hang it. Until then, it looks pretty cute sat on the window with the garden in the background.
|White sides option. You can also have black or photo wrapped.|
|Back of canvas made to make it super easy to hang.|
Wall Snaps will either leave the sides of your canvas white or you can have a black border if your prefer or have the edges of your image wrap around the sides. The canvas is also really easy to hang with 3 spaces on the back where you can rest in on a nail or hang it on a picture hook or hanger.
It is so nice to have some recent pictures up on display in our home. I still have a phone gallery bursting with images eager to be printed but it is lovely to have up date pictures of my family out for everyone to see.
Wall Snaps not only offer canvas and large poster style prints, you can also get your favourite photos put into stylish frames. There are so many different frames to choose from, most of which can be customised, allowing you to create really unique and personal wall art. Framed photographs start from £29.99 and are available in different sizes.
