It’s been a whirlwind here for well, when is not a whirlwind?! With all the hullabaloo of the last few years combined with having a baby, moving, renovating, running the business, having a toddler…I haven’t had a chance to print off any photos of baby Felix and he’s a year and a half now. So you can imagine my joy at the chance to partner with Printique for Felix’s first photo book. It was exactly what I was looking for! Adorable and so easy to put together, I can rest easy knowing I didn’t miss out on such a great opportunity to document the first years of Felix’s life. Let’s dive through it together in case you’re in a similar position.
Tangible vs. Digital
One thing I love about Felix’s photo book with Printique is that it’s tangible. You know how it is–we all have so many digital photos now (45k and counting!) that it’s overwhelming to even look through them to find favorites. I can’t tell you how nice it is to be able to have all my favorite photos of Felix all in one place in a book I can hold. And Jane took so many lovely photos of him over the first few months of his life–thank you, Jane! Being able to flip through a book full of them was a dream.
Friends, Printique‘s photo books are beautiful! That was a requisite for Felix’s first photo book. The cover is a beautiful fabric with gold embossed lettering. It’s exactly the kind of book I want to display and look at all the time, and the beautiful details don’t stop with the cover. I can’t stop running my fingers over it–it’s QUALITY.
There are tons of customization options available for the interior layout and so many cute backgrounds to choose from. And the print quality is spectacular! It was such a pleasure to open up that book for the first time and see the printed versions of those lovely photos. I got all the feels, believe me.
I’m not the biggest technology guru (even though I’ve had a site for about 15 years now!) , but thanks to Printique‘s user-friendly website, making Felix’s first photo book was a breeze. All you have to do is put the photos you want to use in a folder and upload to Printique‘s website. From there, you can customize by adding major milestones, like Felix’s baby blessing (something we do in my church for babies when they’re just a few months old). Oh, and one of my favorite user-friendly features is that Printique allows you to hide the photos you’ve already used. That way you don’t accidentally put duplicates in your book.
What can I say? I’m in love with Felix’s first photo book, and can’t tell you enough how happy I was with Printique. They delivered!
