Online Poster Printing giveaway

I love pictures. I remember when I got my first camera. It was my parent's old one, you had to buy flash bulbs and the film #126 (not sure what that number means anymore). I was young, film and flashbulbs weren't cheap, so I took only a few pictures. When I was maybe 12, I purchased a Cannon that you had to adjust settings on in order to take pictures. It was nice in that it came with an electronic flash. It was a little cheaper without the flashbulbs and I was making more babysitting money by then, so my picture taking steadily increased.

Over the years, I took a good number of pictures. I have stacks of pictures, good and bad to prove it.

Thank goodness for the advent of digital cameras. With a digital camera, I can take all of the pictures that I want. And, they cost me nothing until I am ready to print, and even then, I get to choose which ones to print. No more paying to print the picture of the ceiling, inadvertently snapped. An added advantage is that by being able to continuously take pictures, I have caught some great moments that I might not have gotten if I was limited to 36 exposures per roll of film and knowing that every picture would be printed, not just the ones I loved.

Sometimes, you get that really great picture that is worthy of framing. Do you have a really great picture, that you have been wanting to get enlarged so you can display it in all its grandeur? The glossy poster prints offered at Online Poster Printing are a great way to create a photo enlargement of that great vacation photo or try their photo canvas for a stunning portrait.

I was recently given the opportunity to print my own photo poster print . We didn't want to enlarge just any picture, we wanted a special picture that we could hang in our room - a good picture of both kids that was current. So, we held a special photo shoot in our basement. We had the kids play around on the bean bag chair and took some snapshots. Despite both of them having periods of being uncooperative (in fairness, it was after 7pm, so they were both a little tired), we actually wound up with a handful that we thought we could enlarge. Seeking some opinions around the office, I narrowed it down to one.

We ordered our print and the service was wonderful. The poster arrived protected in a shipping tube and the print quality was great. I went out and bought a frame this weekend so that we could add this new picture to the wall in our room.

You too can order poster prints online. The process is pretty easy. You will need to set up an account. Then, select the pictures that you want to have enlarged and upload your image. You can edit and zoom your image once uploaded, to make it just right. They offer custom size prints. The poster that I printed was 16x20, but you could order a print from 8x8 all the way up to 60x100 (wow). On the rolled products, they offer next day service for prints. Their specialist review images before sending them to be processed and will notify you if there is a concern with your file. All of their prints come with a Money Back Guarantee.

I love checking your site while I am at work, it's a nice little break. By the way, I'm Tracey's sister in GA, in case you were wondering who in Atlanta keeps checking your blog all the time!

This online poster company seems great, glad you were happy with the quality :) I'd probably make a poster of my adorable pug Olive to hang in my cube, people make fun of me for dressing her in little outfits, they'd die of laughter if I brought in a big 'ol poster of her.
