“You are worth printing.” That is Printiki’s slogan. Those four little words inspired me to create a vision board with Printiki photos.
I am the worst at printing photos. I take hundreds of photos of my children, my family, my cat…some with my iPhone, some with our Nikon. About 1% of those photos do not see the light of day! It is such a SHAME. I mean, I would love to look at photos of my kids by my bedside before drifting asleep each night. That is where Printiki comes in.
What is Printiki?
Printiki is a website that lets you easily print photos from any device. You can even print photos from your social media accounts! How many of you only upload your absolute favorite photos to Instagram and Facebook? I know I do! So if you use Printiki, your social media accounts can help you basically eliminate your search for good photos on your device, and if you’ve got thousands of photos on your iPhone like me, this is a major time-saver! No more looking for needles in a haystack. The dreaded photo search and edit is so daunting and is the number 1 reason I never print photos.
One of my favorite things about Printiki is its range of photo styles. There are so many sizes and styles to choose from, plus, you can create photo books and posters! I chose to print retro square photos with a matte finish for my vision board. I dig that whole Polaroid vibe, and you can even add captions! But in the future, when I print family photos, I will probably go for a more a more traditional choice. (Bonus: Printiki ships worldwide!)
In addition to using my favorite photos from my Instagram page, I created some images on Canva using some of my favorite quotes and inspirational sayings. I even found my very first blog header that I used before I became self-hosted so that I could always see how far I’ve come. It was so easy to save the images on my computer and upload them to Printiki. They turned out so cute and are perfect for my vision board!
How do you print photos with Printiki?
The Printiki website is super navigable. I created an account rather than check out as a guest so that the system would save my work on various projects and store my uploads. Since most of the photos I wanted for my vision/inspiration board were from my Instagram, I did not choose to sync my Facebook account. However, I love knowing I can connect Facebook in the future, because a lot of my high-quality family photos are on my personal FB page! I cannot wait to use Printiki to print photos and photo books of my family. In the photo below, you can see all of the photos I decided to print.

Ok, so where's the vision board?
Prinitki sent my photos in no time! And they looked beautiful and in perfect condition.
While the photos were in transit, I purchased a Sweet Jojo Designs Memo Board and some pretty stickers, paper flowers, and sticky notes from Target Dollar Spot. (I can’t be the only one who could spend hours in that section.) I only wish I had purchased a larger board, because I couldn’t fit my 30 photos on the 14 x 14 inch board. But at least now I can create a second one for another space in the house or switch out the photos in the one I have.
Alright. So I settled on Instagram photos that really did well or that I thought would inspire me to get out of my photography DIY comfort zone + 5 inspirational quotes and sayings. Here is the finished board situated at my working space. What do you think?
I really hope to purchase a second memo board or a larger one or simply switch out the photos on this board once in a while. But it never hurts to have more inspiration and motivation in different places of my home. I figure I can’t feel shy about printing photos of my accomplishments if they keep me motivated! I plan to keep the colors bright and fun on any vision board I create in the future because they make me happy!

And I cannot wait to adorn the sad spaces in my home with photos of my beautiful family. Printiki just makes it so simple!

That’s whats up in lifestyle today. I hope you are feeling motivated! I am definitely motivated as I craft this post for you while looking at my pretty vision and inspiration board.
