Truprint Gift – Review

There are times of the year when you really want to give a gift that is special and something to treasure. As someone who loves her camera and all things creative; the things I treasure most are my photos and any art that the Monkey and the Mouse do!

Truprint is a website where you can upload your photos and they print them or turn them into gifts for you. They promise high quality and have 30 years in the business. Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 21.26.30

I have been looking for small items to make our house more of a home and browsing around the Truprint website I found something that I thought would do the trick and it would brighten up mealtimes.

They print various photo gifts including mugs, magnets and wall decor. The thing I liked the look of was placemats for the dining room table. Now the question was what photos to use?! Screen Shot 2014-04-09 at 21.34.41

I tried some photos of flowers I had taken but didn’t have enough I liked for the set.  I then tried family photos and although they looked good I didn’t fancy having me looking up from my placemat and putting us off our dinners!

Then I had an idea, maybe I could ‘showcase’ the children’s artwork on them. They are special and fab to look at. The kids had so many to choose from but we scanned in six and uploaded them to Truprint. You then drop them in place and ‘ta-dah’ they are done! Table Mats

I was so happy when they arrived, they look fantastic, the quality is good, they have a cork bottom which mean they don’t slip and most importantly they are wipeable! The kids love them too, having their artwork displayed and when others come around they are more than happy to show them off.

We would definitely recommend these as a gift for a birthday, Christmas or just because!

Disclaimer: I received some credits to try out the Truprint service, I remain honest at all times.

    I remember Truprint from when I was a child! We used to get our photos developed through them. I didn’t realise they did photo gifts now. I love the placemats, what a great idea!

    I used to use the truprint envelopes! I will be honest I didn’t know they were still about. I had some table mats a few years ago with our Disney holiday pictures on them. They are one of the best photo gifts I have ever had as we use them everyday, and people are always saying how cool they look. I love the idea of having drawings on them such a great idea.

    What a lovely idea and a great way to showcase your children’s art! Bet they love eating their dinner on them everyday.
