Free Prints Review

This year I have made more of an effort to get photos printed and make cute photo albums and scrapbooks with them. Its something I had been meaning to do for years since I had a stack of old photos from my childhood and of my parents when they were young. I was also watching a recent video from VelvetGh0st and she had also got some photos printed and put them together really nicely in a scrapbook which sparked me off so I ordered myself some more photos. I currently have a few photo albums on the go which need spaces filling and also, its fun to document life and perhaps one day show your children.

I had heard of 'FreePrints' and seen it advertised but was very sceptical since after all, how they they claim to send out free photos? Turns out, once you've signed up you're entitled to 40 free standard 6x9 prints each month. You pay a small postage fee but apart from that, you pay nothing. So I placed my order and threw a few more than 40 in for good measure which I had to pay a little extra for and waited. The ease of simply uploading them to the app via your phones camera roll was brilliant and so quick. 

My prints turned up a good week before they were due to (they give a delivery date once dispatched) and I couldn't wait to check out the quality. Now, I've ordered from quite a few photo printing companies now and FreePrints are definitely my new favourite. The photos are clear so long as the resolution is high enough, the colours are vibrant, sharp and the paper itself is thick quality and extremely glossy.

Even Instagram photos which are square come printed with a black boarder down two of the sides which makes them easy to crop but they also look professional if you were to keep them with the boarder. I cut some of mine down but some also look great left as they are. In the past when I've ordered Instagram photos, some companies have just blown them up so they distort and look rubbish so I'm super pleased that FreePrints do Instagram photos this way. I'm thrilled to bits with my prints and will be sure to check back into my app next month for another batch of free photos!

Thanks for reading :)
