Do you still want my picture? Part2

3 Mar

PolagramI already introduced you to Polagram, the app to print your beautiful pictures on paper, stickers, iPhone cases, …

Now, I’m testing it and decided to go for the PolaSticks and the PolaStyle.

The PolaSticks.
PolagramBasically, I’m seduced by the fact that Polagram will print my pictures on high quality re positionable stickers.Polagram
I’m able to stick and re-stick them on any slick surfaces (windows, fridge, back of the drawers and shelves, …) without destroying the material.
It’s perfect for the office and home! And I’m sure my nephews will love it. Better than magnets!

The hardest part was to chose 9 of my best shots.
My pictures come from my “Camera roll“.
Then, when my selection is completed, I simply followed the path to ordering and delivering.

Then I started to chase the mailman for my PolaSticks. I didn’t know what to expect. Thin or thick ? Durability ? Stick and re stick 2 times and then no more ?

Then I received my pink envelop and was surprised by the super thin stickers.

And I started to stick, un stick, re stick, un stick … Until I found the right spot, took me a full day.
The stickers are super resistant and keep the material clean as promised.

It’s really a cool product and since then I ordered another set of 9 PolaSticks with family and holidays pictures

Then I wanted to send some souvenir pictures to a friend living down under in Australia.
I decided to go for the “PolaStyle” and to have it delivered straight to my friend’s mailbox in Melbourne.
Same process here too,
. selection from my Camera roll, but also from Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and this is neat,
. edit/crop if needed,
. add a personal message,
. then fill in the address of my friend, pay using PayPal or bank cards and without more ado, the prints are in their way (delivery the next day)!
Polagram
I already sent another set of pictures to Belgium.

I’m now a regular customer of Polagram!

You want to test the app and send some pictures to mom, BFF or to yourself? Then I advise you use the promotional code “CHASEITOR” and get 25% OFF when checking out (valid worldwide on any Polagram products, until March 8th)!

8. iPhoto, 4,99$
App created by Apple. With this app, you’ll be able to retouch pictures (light, color, sharp/blur, …), add effects to your pictures, but also create journals to share with family and friends (not really useful anymore with the built-in PhotoStream to share your pictures). I use it mainly to lightnen faces on pictures when too dark.

10. 360, 0,99$
Great app to complement the Panoramic option of your iPhone that will enable you to take 360 pictures. With a little bit of practice you’ll take smashing 360 pictures. Then you can “flatten” and save your pictures on your camera roll (less waouw-effect but still cool)

Don’t hesitate to combine the apps to create the best effect, for example here I took a picture that I transformed in black and white and only revealed the colors I wanted (color Snap app) then I saved it and imported in the Notica app to have it saved on the camera roll as a postcard.
