We all love photos, right? Do you frame the ones you really love? I do. (I even use them for my holiday decor...) We all love our phones too, right? What about Instagram? Are you an Instagram junkie? I am! (You can follow me here, by the way.)
Have you found that some of your best photos lately have been the ones you've captured with your phone, not with your "real" camera? Me too. For example, I snapped this photo a few nights ago and uploaded to Instagram.

Now I know how.
I recently got the opportunity to order some canvas photo prints from SnapBox. This was the first I had heard of SnapBox, and I have to tell you that I am IN LOVE. In love, I tell you! These are fantastic!
I was out of town and away from my computer when I needed to order the prints. You know what...? I ordered them from my phone. You know what else? They practically beat me back home! I think they arrived within 4 days of me placing my order.
How cool are these?! They are actually printed onto canvas and mounted on the frames. (From my phone! Did I mention that?)
First of all, I was very impressed with the packaging. I'm giving these as gifts, and I always worry about what condition the item will be in upon arrival. These were thoughtfully and securely packaged and they were in perfect condition.
Look at how cool the texture of the canvas is!
I love this photo of Grant. My mom actually took it with her "dumb" phone (as she calls it.) Grant had been visiting them for the weekend and they were at a rodeo. She looked over to discover him trying to shimmy up a pole in his cowboy boots and hat, just a silhouette against the blue sky. After snapping the photo, she sent it to me as a text. We were all in love with it.
I ordered an 8 x 10 and a 9 x 9 photo... one for Grant to give to my parents, and one that I am giving ME because I love that shot so much.
Chances are, if my mom had had a "regular" camera with her, she probably would not have been able to capture that moment. Phone cameras mean we are more likely to be in the moment without missing the photo op.
This photo? It's for Handsome Hubby.
We went to a big, black tie event a few months ago and he used my phone and snapped this self-portrait. He has mentioned several times how much he liked the photo, so I thought it might be something he would like for his office. At the time, I uploaded this photo to Instagram. Here's another thing that's really cool about SnapBox. They have a frame size (5x5) that's ideal for Instagram and you can even email them the photo directly from the app!
The prices and selection are great. SnapBox canvas prints were featured in People StyleWatch Magazine's "8 Great Ideas $25 & Under!" That is great news, especially during the holiday season when we're all trying to give fabulous and meaningful gifts without going into hock to do it. Prices range from $10 to $25! So cool!
You know what else is cool? The chance to win 3 of your own. Any photo, any size, to give to anybody you want. (Even if that somebody is YOU!)
Good luck! Happy holidays and happy gift giving!
