If you love photo booth strips as much as I do, you're gonna love Wink.
What? You haven't heard of Wink? Well, let me enlighten you.
Wink is a division of Shutterfly. And it's my latest favorite photo thing.
You can choose a photo strip template with three, four, or five spaces, and upload the pics you want to use. There is even an iPhone app so you can upload directly from your phone. You can select from a few different effects if you want, or leave your pics as is. Then for $2.50, including shipping and tax, Wink will deliver a darling little 2x6 photo strip to the mailbox of your choice.
Wink is especially awesome for phone pics, which aren't always the best quality (especially if you are still using an iPhone 3G while not-so-patiently awaiting the white iPhone 4...ahem...). Because the photo strip pictures are small, the lower resolution of the average phone camera is less of an issue.
Wink is also super cool for sending pics to friends and family. For instance, we recently went to an open house at Blizzard Entertainment, where my oldest son works. I didn't know if taking pictures there was kosher, so I left the DSLR at home and snapped a few discreet phone pics. I ordered two photo strips, and had one sent to my son as a memento. The other one went on this layout...
Other things I love about Wink:
- The photo strips are a fun size to scrapbook, and would be especially great for mini albums.
- I can order a souvenir of an event or experience right when it happens...I ordered a strip of beach pics from my beach chair, and uploaded some favorite county fair memories during the car ride home.
- It's super easy to share! At a recent fro-yo date with some school friends, I was able to upload a few pics of our cute kids together, and order photo strips for myself and the other moms. Wink will even contact them for their address if you don't know it...all you need is their email.
- Your first photo strip is FREE! Just sign up for an account, and you can try it out for zero dollars. :)
So what are you waiting for? Start Winking!
