As 2023 draws to a close, you can still find last minute, meaningful gifts for friends and family. We get it, it’s a busy time of the year, and even photographers tend to fall behind in ordering presents for themselves and their loved ones. That’s ok, we offer easy holiday print products that take a short time to create, and leave a lasting impression. Let’s get started on our favorite last minute holiday photo gifts.
Photo books are everyone’s favorites. Our artisians make each photo book and album meticulously by hand. Was there a special event this year or maybe you took a great trip? Whatever memories you made in 2023, they deserve to come to life in print. Now here are some Printique hacks you may not know about when building books to save time.
1. Auto Builder – Printique offers a photo book/album auto builder. That’s right, it does the design for you. Simply choose your template, load your gallery photos, and hit auto builder. And just like that, you have created an entire photo book with one click.
2. Copy-Tweak-Repeat – Did you make a book and want to give it to several people but want it more customized? Simply “copy” your photo book, change a few photos and add to cart. You have now just created a customized photo book for each person on your list.
3. Twice as Nice – You can also add a duplicate book in other sizes when checking out for a friend and save on the second book!
Wall Décor is ever evolving and now is the time to create and think outside the box, and all you have to do is upload ONE photo to make it happen.
Metal, Acrylic, and Glass, Oh my! Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist, you can enjoy the latest wall décor trends.
Metal Photo Prints feature your image infused onto ChromaLuxe aluminium and come in four different finishes.
Acrylic Photo Prints showcase sharp and crisp images printed on polished, optical-grade, glass like HD acrylic. (Don’t forget the cute acrylic blocks that are over an inch thick and can adorn any area)
Glass Photo Prints offer an elegant, sleek and framless way to display your photos on 1/8” glass prints
Canvas Prints are classic and timeless. Upload a photo to Printique and it will be printed on high-quality heavyweight canvas stretched onto a sturdy, 1 ½”, pine wood frame, ready for hanging.
So the best part of these gifts? You only need to upload one photo, to add to cart. It doesn’t get much easier than that! You can even order these on the go when you’re on your phone using the Printique app.
Photo Prints are probably one of the easiest items to order. Printique is one of the few labs around still using old world techniques to give you the highest quality print. It’s called silver halide printing and the image is actually infused into the paper as opposed to digitally sitting on top of the paper. That means your images will be sharper and more vibrant. They offer several paper finishes as well as sizes from wallets to large poster sizes.
You can either load an image from your photo gallery, or you can gift art from the masters. What do we mean by that? Well, there are a number of websites to legally download and print free art. For example, New York’s Metropolitan Museum of art, aka the Met offers a public domain art collection where you can download an image and print it out. The Getty offers the same.
For those truly in a pinch and under pressure, Printique gift cards are the way to go. Unlike other gift cards, you are giving the recipient, an invitation to print their memories. Memories are powerful and meaningful and everyone deserves to cherish them.
