Some days, the postman comes up to our front door and, to be honest, leaves me slightly disappointed when all he delivers is a few flyers and a bank statement. Although, those days are better than the days I watch him walk right past our house without even dropping a pizza menu through the door!
Some days though, he delivers. Figuratively and literally. He’ll bring me a letter from my Mum, or a little something we’ve ordered from Amazon. Or something really fun, like this parcel from Cheerz that arrived the other day.
I was pretty impressed that it arrived as quickly as it did, as the order was coming from France where they’re based. And I had so much fun opening it up and discovering everything that was inside.
Cheerz are a print company who offer a great range of products – so much more fun than your standard 7×6 prints! I spent ages browsing their website before opting for la boîte à photos.
Ordering was really easy. I used their website and it was as simple as uploading my photos, selecting the ones I wanted to use, adding a little white border, and then done! They’ve got an app as well, which makes ordering from your phone really simple, and you can get your photos from Facebook etc which makes things even easier.
Inside la boîte a photos was my photos (of course!), some pretty blue string and teeny wooden pegs to hang up the photos, some lovely washi tape and some photo corners. This gave me so many options and ideas for what to do with my prints!
The first thing I did was use the photo corners and some of the tape to make some thank you cards for Nerys’ birthday presents. I love how they came out, and hope people will forgive me for taking so long to send them when they see how cute the cards look!
Next I hung some of the string across our lounge window and used some of the cute little pegs to hang up some of the prints. The kids loved this and Nerys spent ages pointing out who was in the photos!
My brain is now buzzing with ideas for displaying the rest of my prints (which are such good quality, I’m really impressed with them). I’m thinking of hanging up a few lines of string on the landing maybe, and pegging up some more photos there so we can look at them on the way to bed each night, and I’m toying with the idea of creating a fun photo wall in the children’s room using the washi tape!
If you’re like me and have hundreds (ok, thousands) of photos on your computer and are looking for something a little different to do with them, I highly recommend Cheerz. The print quality is lovely, and the products are a mix of simply fun items like fridge magnets (which I’m seriously considering getting!) and keepsake items like photo albums.
You can find them at www.cheerz.com.
So, tell me, when did you last get any of your photos printed?
