Today’s find is an old-fashioned twist on a very modern trend. If you love to Instagram but are a bit nostalgic about being able to hold a photo in your hand, you (like me) might think this find is sublime! I present to you: kikki.K’s Instagram prints.
For those not familiar, kikki.K is a Swedish-inspired stationery brand. When Kristina Karlsson moved to Australia with her husband, she was surprised to be unable to find the selection of stationery and home office products she enjoyed in her homeland, Sweden. She launched her first line and not too long after opened a boutique in Melbourne. Fast-forward 12 years and you’ll find more than 70 kikki.K stores in three countries (with plans to expand ever further) plus an online marketplace that services the world. People love kikki.K. I am one of them.
Which is why I was delighted to discover their new range Instagram products, in particular, their polaroid-style Instagram prints! Totally easy to make; follow the link and click create, login to your Instagram account then drag and drop your pics until all the little cards are full. Click order! Done!
JS and I ordered a set after our honeymoon in beautiful Hawaii! Check it out:
The cons are that you can only print from your own Instagram account (so couldn’t for example have them printed from a friend’s adventures as a gift for them) and of course any pics you want to print must be pre-uploaded to your account.
The pros are that they’re pretty unique and more than a smidge lovely. The ordering system couldn’t be easier to use, printing and delivery is fast and your pics are printed on 270gsm card with a matt (cardboard) finish. It feels like receiving a set of postcards from your life! They’d be perfect to include (one or two) with a thank you card, something a little unique that would surely take pride of place on the fridge.
You can create your own set for $24.95 (you get 32 prints) and pick up free from your local kikki.K store, ship in Aus for less than $3 or $9.95 for express. International shipping is $19.95 AUD. If you’d rather create a page turning story, try their Instagram photo book instead!
*Snaps* kikki.K for a fun twist on photo keepsakes!
