In a world where we all want to capture our favorite moments with a click or snap of our phones or cameras, HP has taken a step forward on helping us create further memories with those photos.
MyPrintly from HP Inc, is a website with programs and apps that allow you to print your favorite memories within moments of living them! Stop making excuses for why you don’t have printed photos (The cost, going to the drug store to print, the time it takes to order them) and do something you will enjoy!
You can use MyPrintly to create cards, calendars, mugs, magnets, collage photos, and so much more. Excuses will be a thing of the past when you realize you forgot to buy someone special a card! Jump on your computer and design a one of a kind.
One of my husband’s pet peeves is having to find places for all the frames I would purchase. So making collages for him was a perfect way to let him relive special moments in our life at while at work and for me to cut back on the frames! I am able to make easy gifts for others this same way, a nice frame, and a lot of photos that can all display at once! Using 8×10 HP photo paper, I can create an array of collages with as little or nearly as many photos as I wish to use.
Sizing photos this way, also would allow me to create a variation of square and rectangles to apply to wood backing for ornaments! The options truly are endless with MyPrintly and their programs.
A simple but fun craft is to use your favorite photos or a “theme” you like, to create magnets for your fridge or boards/cabinets in the office. Here I printed on actual card stock and applied to clear crafting stones (found in Dollar Tree or other craft stores) with a very thin layer of glue, by using a paint brush. I then applied E6000 glue to the back and applied a round magnet to the backside. Let dry 24-48hrs and they are some of the stronger magnets I have now!
With MyPrintly, you can print on HP photo paper, card stock, patterned paper, regular printing paper, and of course, design your items on non papered items as well with their available items to order. You become the artist and dictate how you want your photos to be used. Stop making your cherished memories only available on social media! PRINT THEM! Print them on paper, print them on glass, whatever you do, do it with a smile on your face! Create those one of a kind gifts that you can’t buy in a store. Let others cherish the memories alongside you!
Check out MyPrintly to see even more craft and printing ideas and get inspired!
