It was in 2003 that I bought my first digital camera as I moved from The Netherlands to Australia. Having a digital camera meant I could take photos of my new home and share them with friends and family via email.
Several years later I had shared some of those digital photos with family and friends back in the Northern Hemisphere via emails, but I never looked at them myself: I hadn't framed any of them, I hadn't printed any of them... they were just sitting on my computer, gathering 'dust' because nobody looked at them after they were filed and saved.
Before the digital era I would print the photos from my holidays and create photo albums, I would even keep tickets and maps from the holiday so I could add them to the album too.
In 2005 I decided that I didn't want my digital photos to just sit on my computer and then I discovered creating photo books online. Perfect! Now I could create photo books once again without having to print all my digital photos first and use glue to stick them into an album. Creating a photo book with digital photos was so much easier and looked so much more professional!
Fast forward a few years and after creating plenty of photo books for myself, helping others create them, and making them for family members and friends I decided I wanted to help more people tell their own story using photo books. I want everybody to be able to create high quality photo books on their own computer, in the comfort of their own home.
And that's when I started pix2print: a place where you can create your own professional looking photo books and calendars, so you can also share your memories with family and friends!
In the beginning it sometimes felt like I was trying to find a needle in a haystack when I was searching for the right software to use as I was very critical. It had to be very easy-to-use, with many templates and other options available, but still allowing complete design freedom for those who want it and suitable for use for Windows AND Mac users!
Believe me, that combination of must-haves on my list was not easy to find in one piece of software! But after a few months my efforts paid off and I discovered the best easy-to-use software available!
Not long after that I was in business, finally making people happy, finally helping people to share their memories, helping them to tell their stories and allowing them to showcase their hidden (photo) treasures.
Pix2print is also a place where you can come for ideas & tips, ask questions and where you can support your charity (ask us how!). We also love to hear your story, please send us an email or say hello on Facebook!
I hope you enjoy creating the photo books as much as I do and remember we are always here to help if you need it.
