Mini Review: Instagram prints from SquareSnaps!


Hey Guys!
It's been a while since I have posted a blogpost and although I probably say that alot with my blogposts, this time it has actually been over a month. I can't say that I have been that busy with life, but I've been a bit dry on ideas, but! hopefully I can get back into the flow of  blogging again!


If you follow me on YouTube, you will know that I am in the process of redecorating my bedroom. One of the small awkward walls in my room is completely bare so I decided to order some Instagram styled prints from a new site called Square-Snaps.com, and I'm actually pretty impressed with how they came out.

How does it work?
The site allows you to print your photos from Instagram or your computer on a choice of 4 print sizes: mini, standard, polaroid- style and super. For my order, I chose basic Mini Snaps option which prints a minimum of 24 prints for £4.32/ £0.18 each. The prints are 2.5 x 2.5 and can be cropped.

P A C K A G I N G



The website says that the prints should be processed/ printed within 24 hours, posted by 1st class for UK deliveries and delivered within 10 days to international addresses at a cost.  I was quite surprised to find that my prints came within just two days of order, which was pretty good considering that the shipping was free.

The snaps come in a silver foil package with a cute "drum roll please" sticker across the front. For some reason most companies send you tiny items in the biggest box they can find which is a nuisance because it means getting one of those "Sorry I Missed You" cards from the postman and a trip to the post office. However, this parcel was a pretty small and flat square which made my life a whole lot easier.
P R I N T S  



The prints come in a little wrapped parcel in between two pieces of cardboard (and a little piece of paper that says TA DAHHH!- how quirky is that?) and a paper band. This would have been pretty useful if the prints were a present, but kudos to SquareSnaps for making an effort with presentation and packaging- plus the prints all came without a crease or bend.



The image quality is pretty amazing! Most printing sites make pictures look blurry, especially when they are cropped but SquareSnaps did a nice job of cropping my non square pictures that mostly came from my computer without compromising the quality. The finish is glossy and the site claims that prints are made to last and water resistant.

 

If you were wondering about print sizes, my Mini Snaps are about half the size of my phone ( I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini), so about 7-8 can fit on a small wall. I love these prints soo much; because they are soo tiny I think I am going to attach them all to a string washing line with some little pegs and hang them in tiny rows.



So that's all for this post, hopefully if you guys like the look of the site, you can get some prints of your own ( sorry, I don't have a promo code for you! and this is not sponsered) Remember that the site offers FREE SHIPPING for UK orders, whereas other sites that offer Instagram prints usually charge for shippijng.
 Let me know what you think of the site if you have ordered- I think I will be ordering again!

Update time! 
So, speaking of room decor/ redecoration, I have an announcement / treat for all of you who have read through the whole post and made it to the end. Actually, my room is now finished, which means that I owe you guys a ROOM TOUR. Well that video is already sitting in my channel uploads on private and I will be putting that live on Monday 30th March!
 So if you would like to see when that goes up, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel!

This was not a sponsered post. I purchased the prints with my own money and all opinions are my own


Thanks for reading!
