Pictures fade away, memories forever stay. Even though this one is an all time stayer, I love to have pictures of memories. Especially of me and my friendz. A short time ago; my external hard disk was broken. I almost had a heart-attack (all my pictures from 2001 untill nowadays were on it), but luckily it could be repaired. That's why it's nice to have all your pictures also printed. But in this online virtual world, people don't pay attention to it anymore. Each summer, as I went on vacation with friendz, I always make a photobook afterwards, with a short summary of these lovely times. Just because it's fun, and to show the kids in the future of course, haha.
I was very thrilled when Pixum offered me a lovely opportunity to test their services. It's an online shop and they offer thingz like photobooks, canvases, posters, calendars, greeting cards, or just simply printing your pics! Something for everyone, there are a lot of possibilities; whether you want to surprise a friend with a gift, whether you just simply love pictures&co as me.
I ordered a photo poster, designed by myself, with the aid of the service. At first, you can choose your own background, secondly upload your pictures and place them where you want and in the end you can even add your own text. It's that simple. As you can see on the pics, I've made a collage of the nightlife in Leuven (the city I study). I'm very happy with the result; the quality of the pictures stayed perfect, and the print is as I expected, moreover the shipment was shipshape and therefore it deserves a place above my bed, in my student-room of course. Definitely a nice idea as a gift.
Thanks again, pixum!
