As you know, I am making a scrapbook for Emily. I've previously posted about the supplies I've bought and a little flip through the book so far. Today I thought I would share where I get the photo's from. I just want to clarify that this is not a sponsored post or collaborative post in any way. I just thought I would share my experience of the app and share where I get my photo's printed.
So as you will have gathered from the title I use and app called LALALAB. I found a referral code online that allowed me £5 off my first order which I thought was a pretty good deal so I downloaded the app and set to work choosing the photo's I wanted printing. There's a couple of styles you can use from such as normal prints, vintage prints (Instagram style) and mini vintage (Instax size) and I chose mini vintage. The prints are about 26p per photo but you can get a discount if you buy in bulk. I will say that any discount codes you find don't work with the bulk box orders. There are also other things you can purchase on the app such as photobooks, magnets and cards with your photos on.
The mini vintage prints are the perfect size for my scrapbook, any bigger and I wouldn't be able to fit half as many photo's into the book and the pages could look crowded pretty quickly. You are able to edit the photo's on the app and you can choose different colours and patterns for the frame of the image and you can also add text if you wish. These are not features that I have used though, I prefer to keep the frames of the images white and then decorate them with washi tape and stickers etc once I've stuck them into the scrapbook.
The process of choosing the images is pretty simple, you just allow the app to have access to your photos and then tick the box on the photo's you want to add. I will say is it is easy to get carried away and select tonnes of your photo's but this can get quite expensive. I thought that the price per photo was a little bit expensive but I will continue to buy them as I want all the photo's to be the same in the scrapbook. The photo's do take a little while to upload once you've made all the edits and changes that you want and finalised the order so I've found the best thing to do is just pop my phone on the side and let it do it's thing whilst I get on with whatever else is on my list of things to do (Netflix/Youtube).
Once you order from once they provide you with a referral code allowing people who use your code to get £5 off their first order and you get £5 credit to spend on the app. If you order twice you are promoted to 'Gold' and get a percentage of your spend back in credits which you can use against future orders.
The photo's take about a week to come as they do come from abroad but it's not an unreasonable length of time to wait. When they do arrive they come in the cutest little envelopes that have adorable little cartoons on them. I'm planning to cut some out and use them as decoration in my scrapbook! Also in the envelopes you can find a little scratch card where you scratch off the panel and enter it into the app for a chance to win a little freebie which is a nice touch!
If you want to purchase any photo's you can use my code which is PGXRVAV2.
Have you used this app before? Where do you get your photo's printed or do you prefer to print them at home yourself?
