Last Chance to Win a Pringo Mini Photo Printer for Father’s Day!!

Daddy love

So we’re officially looking down the barrel of Father’s Day in Australia. Dads nation-wide are preparing to receive their jocks and socks and ties and BBQ tools. And let’s face it, the blokes in our lives tend to like that kind of stuff don’t they?

But why not think outside the square a little this year. Think about something a little different, a little creative, something VERY cool that Dad will love to use. Of course I’m talking about getting him a Pringo Mini wifi photo printer. Dads can print and share photos of the kids, the wife, the dog, his mates, his last fishing trip, his footy team, his latest meat-laden culinary success or he can even take it to work and use it on the job or in the office for worky-blokey-type stuff.

With his Pringo mini photo printer, Dads can print photos directly from his iOS or Android device  while he’s out and about and the best part – he can connect his photo to this tiny printer over the wifi network, no annoying cords to plug in.

But most importantly, if the Dad in your life had a Pringo mini photo printer, you’d be able to use it too :-).

So, here’s your last chance to win a Pringo mini wifi photo printer for Father’s Day (valued at $149). You’ve only got a few days to get your entries in (and you can enter once a day every day).

Oh and if you share this promotion, be sure to add the hashtag #PringoDads so we can hunt you down and thank you!!

Picking a winner for this comp was really hard there were some lovely answers!! But…. there can only be one winner.

And the winner is…..

Gail Greenwood

with the following answer:

Hubby and son enjoy volunteering, to be photographers at the weekly Park Run, and the runners love seeing their photos, on Facebook after they’re done. An online pic though is just not the same, as having an actual photo in your hand, the joy of printed photos has been lost, in the age of everything on demand. A Pringo printer would be awesome,  to share their achievement there and then, an instant gratification for the torture endured, and motivation to get back out there again! 

So true Gail, thanks for your entry and congratulations!!

You still have time to buy Dad a Pringo from our website for $149

Photocraft: 6 things to create with your photographs

There’s nothing quite as gratifying as taking a photograph and making it into something different. Something crafty. Something handmade. Photocraft ends in something you can gift , use or decorate your house or office with. There are literally 1000′s of photocraft ideas and inspirations across the web (which you’ll know if you’ve spent anytime on Pinterest), it’s just a matter of finding the ones you like AND the ones that are within your skill set :-). Here’s a few of our favourite ideas for turning your printed photographs into something extra special:

1. Creative Gift Wrap

There’s two ways you can wrap a gift, just plain old wrap it, or….. you can tell a story with your gift wrap. Adding photos to your gift wrap is a beautiful way of telling (or re-telling) a story, emphasising a friendship or showing how much you care. Adding photos to your gift wrapping adds both significance and personal value to the gift, not-to-mention negates the need to add a card :-) . Here’s a heartwarming idea for a perfect gift wrap that will guarantee smiles from the recipient.

How to make it: Print a photo relevant to the person or the occasion.Wrap the gift with a plain gift wrap, then wrap with ribbon along the length of the gift. Make sure the two ends of the ribbon meet in the centre of your gift. Stick down the two ends of ribbon to your gift with adhesive then stick your photo on top of ribbon where the two ends meet. Such a simple addition to your gift, but it adds so much meaning.

2. Bottletop Photo Magnets

Create your very own adorable bottletop photo magnets. They are a great gift option for friends or family for Christmas, birthdays or even gifts to use at the office.  Alternatively, make these magnets with photos of your most recent holiday and stick them on your fridge to keep you going until your next holiday. 

How to make it: Set aside the number of bottletops you’re planning to use. You can use beer bottletops, soda tops, or any other bottle tops that are clean and undamaged.

Print your photos and cut them in the shape and size of the inside of your bottletops (The standard size of a soda cap is about 2.5 cms in diameter).

Paint the inside of the cap with multiple layers (at least two) of white hobby paint so it gives it a fresh, clean and new look before you add photos. Once the paint is completely dry, stick the small photos in the cap using adhesive. Now, using a stronger adhesive, stick a small piece of magnet sheet at the back of the cap. Let it cool off for a few hours. And it’s ready!

Stick to the nearest fridge or magnetic whiteboard.

2. Balloon Photo Holder

Make your party decoration the best by creating this unique balloon photo holder at the dinner table. What a great conversation starter!

How to make it: Print 10 photos relevant to the occasion (e.g if it’s a birthday party print photos of the birthday girl/boy, for a wedding print pics of the lucky couple etc.). Now, you will need 10 sheets of white paper the same shape of your photos but about 1/2 – 1 inch wider than your  photos. Stick each photo in the centre of the paper and attach it to satin ribbon and punch a hole in the top centre of the paper.  Inflate 10 balloons with helium, tie off the ribbon to each of your balloons holding the inflated balloon and let the balloons hit the ceiling. You can have a variety of effects by either making your ribbon the same length for uniformity (maybe if you’re using the same photo) or have different lengths to mix it up. This special photo arrangement can be displayed at occasions such as birthdays, baby showers, weddings, engagement parties…..oh the list goes on…

3. Fun Photo Bookmarks

This is such a neat idea for a Christmas gift or stocking filler for kids or family members. They’re heaps of fun to make too if you get the kids involved. 

How to make it: You can create this super fun photo bookmark by first taking a photo of the kids individually in a fun position with one or both of their arms above their heads. Print the photo and then cut around the shape of the child. Glue the photo onto a plain white sheet (then laminate if you have a laminator) and roughly cut the white sheet also in the same shape as the kid’s figure (the white sheet will create a strong base for the photo). Use a hole puncher to punch a hole through the pictured child’s hand then tie off handcrafted woolen string or a sleek satin ribbon to it.

4. Re-create Your Lampshade

This lampshade makes a perfect gift for a friend, mum, Dad or someone else special in your life.  This would add a lovely, personal touch to any room and is a great talking point. 

How to make it: Print the desired photos and arrange them how you want them placed on the lampshade. Once you’ve figure out the pattern you want, stick the photos to the lampshade using a hot glue gun. Carefully finish by bluing a layer of clear vellum around your lampshade and over the top of your photos. More ideas for doing this particular lampshade here

5. Handmade Christmas Tree Photo Ornaments

 

Another great idea to get creative with photos is by dangling them on your Christmas tree as decoration. I mean, what could beat these ornaments? And it is super easy to create.

How to make it: Cut out a small cardboard and make sure it matches the size of the photo you’d like to hang on the tree. Carefully paste the photo over the cardboard using adhesive. Now add a small sized string/satin ribbon at the back of the cardboard to hang the photo. Let it set for a few hours and hang them on your Christmas Tree. This is also a great gesture to show relatives and friends how much they mean to you.

 6. DIY Photo Puzzle

This photo puzzle always makes me gush!! This is a sweet idea for a personalised puzzle for a toddler or pre-schooler. You might choose a photo of the child’s favourite person, pet or object so it’s familiar when they try to put it together.

How to make it: Print a clear and uncluttered photo. Line up paddlepop sticks side-by-side and on a level surface (you’ll need anywhere between 10-20 sticks depending on the size of the photo you’re using). Lay a strip of glue along each of the sticks then carefully place your photo on top. Allow to dry for an hour or so. With a sharp knife or craft knife, cut between each stick. Now you’re ready for a little bit of toddler problem-solving action. Note: you might want to number each of the pieces.

4 DIY photo collage wall display ideas

There’s nothing quite as captivating as walking into a home filled with printed photographs. Endless memories plastered across walls and fridges whispering stories of love and friendships, good times and precious moments. For the conventional, photographs are placed in carefully selected frames then nailed to the wall or held to the fridge by magnets. Job done, photographs displayed. But why not think outside the square a little and get a little creative when sharing our beloved pics (not that there’s anything wrong with conventionalism)? Here’s some simple, yet very creative and beautiful ideas for turning your memories into a creative photo collage to proudly display on your wall. 

1. A Heart Photo Collage

Forget about going to a photo studio to get a photo collage made, you’ll be surprised to know how simple this really is.

Heart photo collage wall art

Inspiration from: http://fromswithlove.com

Here’s How You Can Make It: Print your favorite photos that you would like to be displayed. Get a cardboard or a foam core board and cut it in a big heart shape making sure that there’s

enough space to fit in all your favorite pictures. With the help of adhesive, place photos one by one over the heart shaped board and let it dry for a couple hours. You can use a lamination sheet  to protect the photos or simply apply a coat of mod podge directly over the photos. Mod podge will give your collage a finished look. 

2. A Photo Family Tree

 Take your family tree to a new level with this photo family tree.

Inspiration from: fabartdiy.com

Here’s How You Can Make It: You don’t have to be perfect with the size and design of the photos and frames. In fact, different size and shapes will create more diversity on the wall. If you’re particularly creative you can paint your tree directly on the wall. If you’re not so courageous and Picasso-like then you can just purchase a wall decal sticker set and stick that to your wall. Hang your pics spaced evenly around then branches. 

3. Wall Full of Photos

 There’s nothing quite as mesmerizing as lots of small photos all in one spot. Photos are bound with old memories and no matter how many times you flip through the pages of your album, they’ll always make you look back and smile. But wouldn’t it be better if all the special photos from your childhood, your trip to Italy, or your graduation day were displayed on the wall?

collage wall of photographs

Image from fabartdiy.com

Here’s What You Can Do: So the idea is to create a huge collage that can cover most of your targeted wall. Measure the wall and accordingly get a foam core board/core flute. If you’re looking for straight lines rather than a mixed collage effect, grab a ruler and rule parallel lines across your core board to line your printed photographs up on.  Print your favorite photos and simply paste them one by one on the board using adhesive. Once this step is complete, apply one coat of mod podge and let the collage dry overnight. Give it 24 hours to dry then hang in a prime viewing position. 

4. Vintage Handbag Photo Decoration

 If you can get your hands on vintage handbags, this is a very chic idea for photographic home deco work.  

vintage handbag photos, photo wall art

Inspiration from: sassytrash

How You Can Make It: Get a basic photo frame and remove the back cover of the frame. Place the photo in the photo frame as usual and apply adhesive on all four sides of the frame. Carefully place the frame on the handbag and let it dry overnight. Place other ornaments or artificial flowers in the handbag and hang it on the wall. So very cool!!

So it’s okay and just a little bit cool to think outside the square when it comes to hanging photographs in your house. Whilst throwing them up in frame is perfectly lovely, adding a little contemporary artsy inspiration is absolutely delightful.

How do you display your photographs in your home or office? 

 

5 Reasons to print your photographs

In todays digital world, taking photographs is just a click away. It’s quick, easy and indeed almost effortless. With cameras, iPads, mobile phones and Instagram, taking photos has become more fun than truly making memories. Sure, keeping an enormous collection of pictures in your smartphone, hard drive or computer is easy but it’s to a point where we’re taking more and more photographs but printing less and less of them. We’ve all but forgotten the simple pleasure of having a printed photograph at our fingertips. Here’s a thought! How about we revive your memory and inspire you with some practical points that will give you inspiration to print not ALL of your photographs but at least a couple of the really special ones.

1. Print Photographs Can Be Exhibited
How often do we see digital photos on display at home or work? Print photographs give you the option to display your favorite photos. You can use them as decorative items at work or home. It not only brightens up the place but also works as a great means of quality conversation with people.
Sure you can scroll through the thousands of photos on your phone or computer but that’s a great way of losing the interest of whomever you’re sharing them with *yawn*. There’s nothing quite like displaying favourite memories on the wall, fridge or desks to be shared at will with any passerby who may perchance to stop.

2. You Can Add Notes to Photographs
Imagine, you see an old photo and you can’t remember where or when the photo was shot but when you turn the photo you see a note written by you. The note gives you the opportunity to relive and recall the exact moment when the photo was taken. Plus, your kids and grand kids would thank you later for adding those notes. The thousands of photographs stored on your computer lack that kind of personal touch.

3. Technology Evolves
Once upon a time, there existed Compact Cassettes. Sound familiar? Todays generation is probably oblivious of such technology. Technology is dynamic and constantly changing and chances are, those digitally stored cherished photographs may not be able to be extracted in future years. With a bit of care, printed photographs will last forever.

4. Print photographs Are More Valuable
Imagine, someone going through your stuff in the future and all they can find is, a dozen hard drives,  memory cards and USB sticks. Would they go through the hassle to load them in the computer? More than likely not. But it would be a priceless feeling to find a box full of valuable pictures that they can go through and admire.

5. Printed Photos Talk to Us
Lets face it! A few simple prints are simply more beautiful and fun to watch. Maybe its the unique texture and feel of printed photos that everyone loves. Many people like to hold pictures in their hand rather than scrolling through various photos on iPad or a laptop.

Capturing memories through photography is only one part of the process. Being able to look back on that moment and cherish it through a printed photograph is a way of ensuring that memory stays with you generations into the future.

 

When was the last time you printed some of your photographs? What did you do with the prints?

 

Pringo wifi mini printer print photographsThe Pringo mini wifi photo printer allows you to print and share your photographs on the go. Print credit card sized photographs straight from your iPhone, Smartphone, iOS or Android device. With our free Pringo App you can add stickers, text and borders to really personalise the moment.

 

7 tips for awesome smartphone photography

With advances in camera technology, smartphone photography has really taken off. We’re now starting to see more and more fantastically framed and perfectly exposed photographs that have been taken on none other than a gadget that fits into your pocket.  More and more we’re doing away with digital cameras and SLRs, so why not make the most of our little smartphone geniuses and get them to take something decent, rather than just a plethora or blurry, posed shots.

Here’s some really simple tips for taking some awesome photos with your smartphone – but be warned, these are only just the tip of the surface and don’t even start to cover things like editing apps and such.

 

Smartphone functions

A lot of smartphones have a number of great functions including panorama capability and HDR (High Dynamic Range) functions. Whilst panorama is pretty self explanatory, HDR probably not so much.  In HDR mode your smartphone takes multiple shots instead of just one, then splicing together the same image at different exposures to hopefully get the best of all of them.

Smartphone still photo with HDR on

It’s good in theory but not always effective and HDR can be susceptible to blurring your shots so use it with static pics like landscapes. It can be a little tricky to work on some phones but it’s worth having a play with it to see the differences in your pics.

Crop don’t zoom

If you’re trying to make an image larger within your photo, you’re better off working the crop function rather than zooming it. Most smartphones have a zoom function but once you start using it, there’s a noticeable degradation of the quality of your photograph. On the other hand, many smartphones are 8 megapixels or more so cropping a little here and there means you’ll still have a decent level of resolution to retain a quality photo. Just be mindful not to overcrop and lose the original focus of your photo or risk crowding your picture.

The rule of thirds

This is one of the very basics of photography and applies regardless of whether you’re shooting with a smartphone or traditional camera. The rule of thirds means you imagine a grid of lines on your smartphone display and divide the screen into thirds both vertically and horizontally.

Rule of thirds smartphone photography

Rule of thirds
Image from here

Some smartphones will come with the option to actually display the grid for you. To make your photo more appealing, try lining up your object of focus at the cross section of any of those lines.

 

Lighting

Regardless of whether you’re using a smartphone or traditional camera, you’re going to need a source of light. Just how much light you need will depend on what effect you’re looking for. Good light will give your photo depth and character which usually means if you’re shooting indoors on a cloudy day you’re going to struggle to get a good pic.

iphone photo sunrise

This photo was taken by Eric Teske with an iPhone. He tapped on the brightest part of sky within his screen to balance the light.

Try not to shoot directly into backlit situations and try to have the light falling on your object of focus. If you’re in a low light situation, think twice before using your phones camera flash. This type of flash can have harsh effects and leave people looking white and ghostly. If you really need to use the flash if you place a light coloured sticker or tissue paper over your flash when you use it, it will soften the light.

Don’t forget to focus

Your smartphone is clever but it can’t read minds so you’re going to have to show it what you want it to focus on. Many smartphones have a tap to focus feature which allows you to tap on the object you want to focus on and others have a two-stage shutter button to auto focus your camera. Whichever way your camera focuses, use this function to ensure you capture what you’re planning to.

Clean your lens

It may seem really simple but even the tiniest speck of dust or grit on your smartphone lens can affect the quality of your photo. Considering for most of us our phones are stuck in our pockets or handbags for most of the day, chances are they’re going to get dirty. Take a moment to give the lens a clean before you capture your next memory.

Print and display

With digital technology the way it is, it’s so easy to point and capture hundreds of photos in the blink of an eye. After capturing your masterpieces, don’t forget to take a moment to select your favourite photos to print and display rather than just hide them away on your smartphone or your computer.

 

If you’re looking for a fabulous portable wifi photo printer that lets you print straight from your smartphone, look no further than the Pringo digital printer - only $149.

As the new school term is suddenly upon us, how prepared are you for the onslaught of school projects, ‘show and tell’ presentations and school craft medleys?

In fact, the first week back at school is usually a time when kids catch up with their friends and share their holiday stories. Cue the chorus of ‘muuuum can you please print a photos of *insert relevant holiday photo here*…’ . And truth-be-known, you wouldn’t mind printing photos so much if it wasn’t such a hassle to download them off your phone or tablet, find the one you want, hook your computer to the printer and then groan as a pop-up flashes before you warning that your printer has just this very moment run out of ink. To make matters worse, the request is usually made at 8am on the morning the photo is required for school.

Thankfully Pringo makes printing photos simple and quick.
