Blogmas Day 11 ; Personalised Christmas Gifts [Square Snaps]*

I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Square Snaps and offered some products to review. After browsing on their website I agreed. They specialize in printing your Instagram and Digital photos and creating gorgeous Polaroid Photo Prints as well as Greeting Cards, Photo Books, Jigsaw's and Canvases. 

They offer High quality prints from only £0.18p per print and free UK shipping!! You can order prints straight from your mobile device and they deliver worldwide!!

I was offered the following 
3.5" x 4.2" (8.9 x 10.8cm) 
27 prints 
-     -     -     -     -     -     -     -     -     -     -
6" x 6" (15.2 x 15.2 cm) 
Envelopes Include 
10 cards 

The first thing I noticed is the way their website has been designed. It's easy to use, creative and they offer two options when uploading your photographs.  You can go over and have a look yourself HERE

When the items were delivered I was totally shocked by the packaging! I have never in my life seen anything quite like this. I have struggled to find the right description, but the best I can do is say that it’s almost like a mixture between corrugated card / tin foil and inverted bubble wrap? (Okay, now I sound insane!!) I’m just hoping the photograph below gives you some sense of what I’m trying to describe! It’s very sturdy and totally awesome!

They also added a cute little motif sticker which read ‘Drum Roll Please!’ which adds to the excitement of opening the package! 

They also add a little message card inside your order which is shown below ... 

The polaroid prints were fantastic. I think they’re a really cute touch on a normal print. They give you the chance to add hand-written captions to your photos. I find they add a real vintage feel to your photo collections. I also like the size of them, they’re the ideal size to pop in a photo holder and place on your desk/shelves. 

The Greetings Cards were fantastic! I cannot fault them at all. They’re not too big, neither too small. The quality of the entire product is perfect and the quality of the print is also amazing. I never really send Christmas Cards but I gathered I would this year, I picked some of my favourite photographs and some photographs from previous years too personalise them and I shall be sending these out to family and friends soon! I also received a cute dog greetings card with a little promotion code inside. I thought that was a cute touch! 

Whilst browsing on their website I come across their Photo Books and decided to buy one of these separately. I was planning on making a ‘My Life So Far’ Photo Book as a present for my best friend as she gave birth to a beautiful little girl this year. I uploaded some photographs which had the biggest meaning, for example …
Last Bump Photograph
Scan Photograph
First Photograph
First Swimming Photograph
First Visit I Made Photograph
First Holiday Photograph
Alongside some others

The Photo Book is amazing quality. The photographs are printed on thick paper almost card material. Unlike the other items. Although the quality was fantastic I was a little upset that the order I uploaded the photos were not the order I received them in. They come in a ring binder booklet, which is fine but there is a Square missing on the front cover, almost like a sneak peak. It’s a great idea but it doesn’t match the photo inside so degrades the quality a little. I was also a little disheartened by the quality of the covering. Considering the photographs were so sturdy inside the photo book the covering is flimsy. It would be great if they offered a personalised option for the cover too, even a little pattern and/or being able to add printed words – maybe? Never the less I shall wrap this up and I’m sure my best friend will appreciate it. 

Overall I was highly impressed with my order from Square Snaps!
