We were lucky enough to be asked if we would like to try out the new Gift Box from Polagram.
If you haven’t heard of Polagram, they are a company that produce prints of your android or i-phone photos, in various formats – individual pictures printed in the old polaroid style, posters, photobooks, even personalised phone covers as well as the gift box.
I downloaded the app to my phone, but then failed at the first hurdle as the android app does not yet offer the gift boxes.
However, this did not stop me for long, as hubby has an I-phone, so I made him download the app too!!
It is really ease to use, basically you select the photos from the phones picture gallery and then it uploads them onto the app. You can add a message on to each photo as well. I chose to label about half of my photos.
You enter your delivery details and payment and that is basically it!
Once the order is processed you will get an email confirming it and then you just have to wait.
They are really good at keeping you informed as to how the order is progressing – they emailed me again when the order was processed and once more when it was complete and ready to be dispatched.
It is also really quick!
The photos were dispatched within a day or two and arrived within a week.
The 36 photos you have selected are printed in polaroid style and are on good quality photo card – not flimsy paper and the quality of the print/colour of the ink is great too.
It is rare, these days for us to print our pictures. Everything is stored digitally now and I tend to make photobooks, rather than individually printing them. Of the hundreds of snaps I take on a weekly basis, only a handful make it into old style photo albums, so , for me, this is a great way to do things the old way and remember all those individual, precious moments.
Your prints come presented in a gorgeous pink box with a sweet and meaningful message printed on it. My box says “Time flies, memories don’t”
I am really pleased with my gift box and would definitely recommend it as a personalised and thoughtful present to commemorate a special occasion.
My photos were all blog-related from the last 6 months and they will be a lovely keepsake for me to look back on.
It would be great if in the future they maybe could offer different options for the box itself i.e. an ivory box for wedding photos or your own photo cover for the box, as the pink is very girly. Having said that though, for me the pink was perfect!
