6×8 Prints for Memory Keeping

Travel_Journal-42

We’re seeing more and more photo albums and memory books in the 6×8 format. It’s a fun size and a great way to mix up storytelling. Summer is near and families take trips. Have you ever put together a “travel journal”?

Recently, my husband and I spent a week in New Zealand. The fancy dSLR stayed home. I only used my iPhone and iPhone Apps to create my New Zealand Travel Journal. I chose the 6×8 Handbook in Woodgrain Cloth from Studio Calico. Photo pockets include 6×8, 4×6, 3×4 and 2×2 sizes, so I shot photos with these aspect ratio’s in mind. Prints from Persnickety.

I prefer photo albums with page protectors over bound books for a variety of reasons:

  1. Perfect storage for tangible memories (tickets, notes, etc)
  2. Photographic printing is more archival than ink based printing
  3. Page protectors allow me to add photos and memorabilia at any time
  4. Instant gratification, I can print in stages
  5. Personalization of handwriting (journaling cards)

2×2 prints are fun to play with but tricky to print. Read our last post explaining the easiest way to design and print 2×2’s here.

All 6×8 Prints were shot with the iPhone 6 and post processed in the Rhonna Designs Mobile App. With the long flight home, I flipped my phone on Airplane mode and designed away!
