A place where design, fun finds and family collide

Instantly Framed {getting those special pics on your wall}

If you are anything like me you love taking pictures with your phone.  Its convenient and with the quality of cameras on phones now, it makes it easy to capture a clear photo in a snap.  I personally love Instagram and how fun it can be to see the way others capture their lives and those special moments.  I know I’ve “met” some amazing women through Instagram and look forward to “chatting” via my photos and theirs.  But in capturing all these moments, what do you do with them next?  Do you have any of them hanging on your wall? I know I don’t.  I do have them all sitting on a shelf in these cute little books, but that’s a different post. 😉 For someone like myself that loves taking pictures I knew it was time to try to get a few of my photos printed.  This can be a daunting task because there are so many options of photo printers….which has the best quality, do I have to pick my order up, can it be sent to my house, where should I buy the perfect frame etc.  All of these thoughts have really deterred me on moving forward to getting any photos printed. I think I may have the solution to this “problem.”  I’m hoping this little post brings you a little tip that may result in some wonderful holiday gifts for your family…think Grandparents gifts….hello!  Amazing!  There is a new company called ‘Instantly Framed‘ that is a new app you can download to your iPhone that allows you to instantly upload a photo from your phone and then have it framed and shipped to your home for free and receive it within four days of ordering it!   Your image will be printed in one of a few available sizes based on your original image.  It will then be printed , matted and framed in a 12″x 12″ American-made, sustainably farmed black walnut wood frame.  It is that easy!  I’m so excited to share this with you all as well as a discount code specifically for my readers.  Boom! Use code CIGREYDESIGNS10 for $10 off each order.  This code expires Monday, December 15th so get on it.

For my order I decided to print a picture I had taken of my kids searching for seashells at a recent visit to The Wedge in Newport Beach.

I edited it so that the colors weren’t as vibrant. 

 I received my order the other day and it was just perfect.  I was so pleased with the image quality.  The image was super clear and even with the editing I did to it, it still printed amazingly.  I love the fact that the frame is a perfect square because I think it adds so much interest to the piece itself.  You can see with how my photo ledge gallery wall is looking that the square frame really stands out.

Now that I have this great memento added to my photo ledge wall, I think it is time to update the rest of the prints I have featured.  This is one of the reasons why I love the use of photo ledges.  They allow you to change up your art pieces whenever you want, without leaving holes in your wall.  The ledges I used are just the Ribba photo ledges from Ikea.  They are priced great and come in two different sizes.  If you decide to create a similar wall and order your very own ‘Instantly Framed’ piece I’d love to see it.  Email me to share.
