i don’t know if it’s the same for you, but as i get more interested in true quality in my life over quantity, giving gifts that truly matter and mean something significant becomes more of a priority for me. so other than maybe gifting someone you love with an actual adventure together, the next best thing might be memories of those you’ve already experienced. i’ve been traveling so much lately, a lot of which has been so very momentous and life-changing, so i was really excited when Artifact Uprising invited me to put some of those memories down on paper to share with you and gift to those i traveled with.
for me, taking photos has always been part of the fun of traveling! and while i love sharing a digital peek at my travels here and on social media, having my photos printed turns the memories into a tangible keepsake, and makes sharing my experiences with others, especially the ones who were along for the adventure, so much more special.
and artifact uprising doesn’t just create framed prints from your photos and Instagrams — they also create beautiful hardbound and embossed covered books in linen (in tons of different colors) and you can lay them out exactly as you like and really easily with their online program. whether you want to lay out your books by color scheme or say in chronological order of your trip, it’s super simple — essentially just dragging and dropping where you’d like your photos to appear and you edit as often as you like until you get it just right. they also now carry these sweet little color series softbound books, which i chose to make for my trips to Copenhagen and Todo Santos, Mexico because i felt their colorful and fun layout and design really fit the vibe of each trip. i also thought they’d make lovely holiday gifts for my very special travel companions on each of these trips, so i ordered one for me, and one for them. i love the idea of us both having a lifelong memento of a time that bonds us together, which makes me think that i have perhaps stumbled upon the adult version of a friendship bracelet? who’s to say?
Artifact Uprising also makes these creative window display boxes that fit up to 50 individual square prints — the perfect gift for your favorite person’s desk. i chose them because i love being able to swap out my favorite images and the ability to store the rest in the lovely little pocket-like display box means nothing gets lost and you’re always ready to change things up when you get the urge. and, of course, Artifact Uprising also frames your favorite photos in all kinds of gallery frames and in all kinds of sizes. from pretty brass frames to these pale wood frames, which i selected to remember my friend bri and my amazing and memorable trip to spain and portugal — an ideal gift for her (shhhh!) this holiday season, and some for me to keep on display in my own office for those days when i need to escape for a bit. there’s always Artifact Uprising’slarge format prints, too, so should you really want to make a memorable impact, go large! there are endless gift options at Artifact Uprising, with smashing style and really wonderful quality that will last much longer than most gifts’ temporary and fleeting shelf lives.
And if my creations leave you feeling inspired to create photo gifts for your own friends and family for the holidays, you’re in luck, because Artifact Uprising is generously sharing an exclusive offer with all of you!
