Spring Break Documented + a freebie


For those of you who follow Persnickety Prints on Instagram, you may have noticed that we took our wild boys to southern Utah for Spring Break last week. Hiking, Biking and Swimming in perfect 70 degree weather was just what we needed before heading back home to the rain!

When busy with these types of activities, I always have my phone, never my big ole Nikon D90 to take photos. With the right apps (online class coming soon) mobile photography can be just as sharp as a point and shoot.

Now to the great part…. As we are road tripping home in the car, for 4 hours, I had edited, uploaded and order all prints needed to complete the right page above. The 4×4 Pocket Pages from WeR Memory Keepers makes it easy to slip in mobile photos & move them around. I have used this method in previous posts here and here.

We arrived home from our family vacation late Sunday night, and by Monday afternoon Spring Break 2013 was complete!

A quick way to get it done…

1. Snap photos with your mobile device
2. Edit or Don’t. Some of our favorite photo apps today: Camera+ for snapping, Snapseed, Phonto, PicTapGo, VSCO Cam, Picfx, Collect, Fuzel
3. Upload to Persnickety Prints-  *DISCLAIMER* until we have our new app up and running, these are the steps you must take to get the gold at the end of the rainbow!:)

Premade 4×4 2013 Insta Months make it easy!

Persnickety Prints

 Because I like the white border on this particular design, I ordered the 4×4 Insta Months as a 4×4 Instagram. They’re 45¢ when you order 15 or more. Only 35¢ with 100+

 Of course we can’t design these and not share!

Simply add what you need to your next Persnickety Prints online order of 4×4 prints and you’ll be on your way to a quick and easy album giving you more time to do more! (You’ll notice above that I pulled my card into PS and added a “Spring Break” text above the April before I printed)

  3. How do you change these in a MAC to a 4×4….in my downloads, when I attempt to print it comes out as a 8 1/2 x11….if I try to change the size to smaller the computer/printer thinks it is a photo and tries to print in photo mode….Yes, I’m not very good at this!!

    • Hi Susan- well, they’re intended for you to upload & print at Persnickety Prints- but definitely feel free to print at home! You’ll need to lay them out in an editing program on an 8.5×11 sheet. Make sure your printer isn’t checked to “print to size”, otherwise the 4×4’s won’t be true 4×4.

    • Hi Priscilla, there is a link in this post to them– WeR Memory Keepers. 4×4 9-up on a 12×12- works great for lots of photos and less time to arrange them in different sized pockets!
