First Video is Up!

My first video is up! I reviewed an innovative print service called Free Prints by It's my first video contribution to Stiff Upper Lens and I had a lot of fun making it.

As a kid I remember going through hundreds of photos my parents took from way back before I was born. Our whole family sat down and just looked through boxes and boxes of photos. My mom and dad explained who everyone was and told stories about the moments captured in the photos. I really enjoyed seeing photos of my great grandparents and extended family whom I never had a chance to me. That experience stuck with me ever since and since I enjoyed the experience so much, I wanted to make sure I could do the same with my kids when the time came.

Growing up in the 90's and now through the 2000 somethings, almost all my photos are digital. I always thought to myself, "I better get these printed some day because the drives holding these photos are going to die and who knows what's going to happen to Instagram..." Printing photos at Walmart and CVS isn't as simple as it should be. And what's the deal with those kiosks they have? Why do they hardly ever work? Having photos printed these days is getting harder and more expensive as time goes on, so when I heard about Free Prints on Pandora Radio I figured "What the heck; I'll try it!"

The service turned out to be really cool. You can get 85 free 4x6 prints every month and all you have to pay for is shipping which is $9.99. It's a great way to get photos off your phone into your hands. And at about 12 cents per photo, you can't really go wrong, especially since you don't have to deal with those awful kiosks. And as an added bonus, Free Prints has a promotion running where you can get your first 10 prints for free and the shipping charge is waived too. In my mind, there was no reason for me not to try it.

If you feel the same way about having hard copies of your photos, the Free Prints app might be the way to go. Check out the review and tell me what you think. Would you use free prints?
