Why Print Photos?
With all the digital photo services out there that allow you to store and share your photos online, many people have asked me, "why should I even print my photos anymore?" Well, it's a great question, so I wanted to address that today.
In today's economy, cost is a significant factor in deciding whether to buy almost anything. However, one reason to print your photos is the cost. Most regular 6x4 prints only cost 15 or 20 cents, but the significance of the photo lasts forever. Photo prints make excellent but inexpensive gifts for just about anyone in your life, and are a great way to preserve your favourite memories while spending just a little pocket change.
Photo prints are also great for archiving your life. Taking photos is really just the first step. Once you have those images captured, print your favourite photos so you can easily locate them to look at and enjoy for years to come.
Digital photo sharing is a great way to share your memories with people quickly and easily all over the world. But, I still think the best way to share your photos is to print them and give them to people, or look together and tell stories about the photos you took. Printed photos tell a story from your life, whether it was a family vacation, wedding or event, or just a random day. They allow you to pass those memories on to your friends and family. Even as we all grow older, those memories last forever.
Printed photos are also a great way to back up your photos. We've all heard the horror stories of people losing thousands of precious photos due to computer failure or malfunction. Don't let this happen to you! Print your photos and store them safely. That way, you have physical and digital copies, so your memories are always safe.
Decorations and Display
What better way to decorate your home or office with your favourite photos! You can print your photos in a variety of different sizes, from small 4x6 prints to large posters and enlargements. Or, take it to the next level and order a canvas print of your photo for an even more impressive display. They personalize any room, whether it is photos of people in your life, or cool artistic photos you've taken and printed.
Sometimes, We Just Miss 'Em
Let's face it…photo prints take us all back to our childhood. They are a return to the sentimental and simpler days of sharing moments and memories, before you had hundreds of photo and social media sites to choose from. Sometimes, a good reason to print photos is simply because you miss having the prints around. Printed photos invoke much more emotion than staring at an image on a computer screen. You can hold the printed photo in your hand, which makes the memory that much more tangible and real.
