I am really old school when it comes to reading. I know there’s digital books out there and I know most of society usings an eReader of some sort, but I have no interest. I am all about reading an actual book, with pages and a cover. There’s just something about it that makes me really enjoy the experience. I know that the digital world hasn’t just taken over the book business though either. I bet if I asked you about your photos, you’d have to admit most of them are stored digitally. I am with you on that one, too. I think I actually print maybe a third of the photos I take each year (and that’s a stretch even!). That’s why this year, I’ve decided its time I gift memories to my family. I plan to give them photo books and calendars of the photos I’ve taken throughout the year. I was toying around with this idea when I found Artifact Uprising and that’s what sealed the deal. This company is all about the tangible, which makes me smile.
This quote from their home page is my favorite:
Inspired by the disappearing beauty of the tangible.
Artifact Uprising offers some of the most gorgeous photo books (both hard and soft covered in different sizes) and beautiful personalized wood calendars. Take a look at the quality in these pieces…
They even offer an Instagram friendly photo book. The perfect way to save your memories, even from your phone!
I was able to make my own soft cover photo book in the 8.5×8.5 size. One of my favorite things about these books is that they offer you 40 pages, which is double the amount most photo books offer you. I loved that I was able to use all of the photos I wanted when making this book and not having to sacrifice any because I ran out of room. I know, I know most offer you the option to add pages, but who wants to pay more to do that? Not me! I decided to make a photo book of our vacation to Cape Cod this past summer. It took me some time to download my pictures and arrange them exactly how I wanted, but that is really the case wherever you make your photo books. I was extremely impressed with the quality of my book when it arrived. It was nicely wrapped and in pristine condition. It actually comes with a note that says if you have any issues or if you aren’t happy with the quaility to contact them. The paper used is heavy, nice quality paper and definitely makes the book look like a high end coffee table book.
