I take a lot of photos.
When I was growing up, I would constantly look through my mom’s old photo albums and memory books–I loved seeing what she did when she was my age. She had playbills from Broadway shows, old Christmas cards, plane tickets, and a whole mix of things you might never expect.
Since I’m basically my mom in 26-year-old form, it’s no surprise that I turned out the same way. I save EVERYTHING. Plane tickets, ticket stubs, museum brochures… if it’s paper, it’s going in a book.
In that same vein, I also insist on printing my photos. Why? Very simple: because I can’t pass my Facebook page down to my kids and grandkids.
Okay, Chewy, get off my prints.
I love finding my old memory books and flipping through them–as mentioned countless times before here, I’m a complete sucker for nostalgia. Isn’t it crazy (and awesome) how a photo can so clearly bring you back to a memory? I love that. This is why I’m on such a kick to bring back print.
Because I value high-quality, archival prints, I order mine from Artifact Uprising. As mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of theirs. Their attention to quality and detail is very impressive and I adore everything about them.
Memories are just way too important to keep on social media or hidden in my hard drive. Tangible, IRL prints are really where it’s at. Aaaaaand if I’ve convinced you, Artifact Uprising is offering 10 FREE prints with code AUDREY10 (just pay shipping) now through October 9th, 2017. Enjoy!
