Print Out Your Photos - Tonight - or Tomorrow!

I just submitted a batch of photos to my go-to photo finisher, mpix.com. They have a print special going on - 25% off - but this special offer ends tonight. If you happen to have a bunch of digital photos ready to upload, tonight is your night.

Even if you read this after the special offer has expired, I urge you to print out your digital photos. Put them in a simple album. Tape them on your walls. Write on the back of them and send them through snail mail as a postcards to brighten someone's day. As a smart-phone / camera-phone / selfie-taking culture, our digital photos have become ubiquitous, almost throwaway commodities, but they represent our lives. OK, so don't print out every photo you've taken of your breakfast, but maybe print out that photo you took of that special meal you poured your heart into.

Here's a small sample of what I sent to be printed. I'll give some away, some will decorate the walls of my kids' rooms, some will make their way to my office at work. Most importantly, they won't be hidden on my computer's EHD. I'll enjoy them on a daily basis and be reminded of the good things we've encountered in this journey called life.

Great idea to print photos. I often print up my best ones on my home printer with some great paper that i love. It is red river metallic. Makes your shots look awesome. I also love having prints done up in metal which is so amazing.. Great idea to do and also use for gifts.... Someone may as well get a benefit from my photography obsession. LOL. I have never used mpix , but will check it out. Love your shots by the way

Beautiful. I never print out mine. I've become accustomed to changing my favorites so often, I couldn't choose.
