Printing your photos has now taken a very cool turn, right in time for cool Father’s Day photo gifts. But then again, the creative folks at Photojojo pretty much have the lock on anything photo and cool. Now, check out the shop’s new engineer prints that help you super-size pictures into something fresh and fun, using a totally lo-fi, old-school approach.
Here’s how it works: Upload a pic to the site. Photojojo uses the kinds of industrial printers typically used by architects and engineers to create 3×4 halftone black and white images on a lightweight, 20lb bond paper. We’re talking human-sized prints here.
Oh, the places you may go with your double-XL print. Consider these DIY decorating tips for the photos: One-of-kind wallpaper for your home office. Super-customized gift wrap. Cool wall decor for the kiddo’s birthday party. Jumbo wall murals for that wanting space behind the sofa. A sweetly personalized Daddy-and-me photo gift for Father’s Day. Cute blowups of your last photo booth adventure with the kids.
So yeah, there’s a lot you can do with these and I love it. Can’t wait to see where else my mind goes with these.
