Smartphones, photo booths, and hashtags — today, we have more options than ever for capturing and sharing images from the big day. But what we do with these special shots can be just as important as the photos themselves!

Enter Frameology —a new online service that allows you to upload your photos and frame them directly from your computer, smartphone, cloud drive or even social media. They handle all the rest! Frameology will print and frame your photo, package it beautifully, and ship it anywhere in the US.

What makes Frameology particularly noteworthy? It’s their focus on simplicity and quality. If you choose to print one of your thousands of digital photos, it’s because that photo is meaningful, a permanent reminder of a time that was truly special for you. But Ben Koren, Frameology’s founder, realized that the process of printing your photo, finding a perfect picture frame and matching the two was a hassle. So, he started Frameology to offer something better!

Frameology‘s ease of use is unparalleled, and their dedication to good design is significant. Since a photo is one of your most important memories, Frameology treats it as such—using a fine-art quality printing process, hand-crafted frames, and lavish attention to detail.

Whether you’re framing your wedding photos or printing a senior portrait for your grandmother, there’s no better way to cherish your own special memories. We’re offering a chance to win $500 toward a purchase at Frameology, $250 for 2 Snippet & Ink readers!

To enter, just leave a comment on this post letting us know which Frameology frame is your favorite and what you plan on framing!

UPDATE:  This contest is now closed.  Congratulations to Alison and Barb for each winning $250 towards a purchase at Frameology!

No matter what you’re buying or where you’re shopping, it’s so frustrating to find the perfect item only to discover that it doesn’t come in the right color. And when it happens in the middle of searching for wedding stationery, it’s twice as stressful! Luckily, sites like Basic Invite allow you to choose from nearly unlimited colors for each element of your favorite stationery designs and this week they’re giving away $700 in free stationery to one lucky Snippet & Ink reader!

Keeping your stationery and paper details in sync from save the dates to dinner menus is one less thing to worry about with Basic Invite! Each design is part of a matching set, so you can take the guesswork out of coordinating your overall look.

 

 

As promised, Basic Invite is giving away a $700 credit towards any stationery available on their site – you could order 100 invitations, RSVP cards, direction cards, accomodation cards, thank you cards, and more! To enter, leave a comment below and let us know which designs you can’t wait to order!

UPDATE:  We’ve announced a winner!  Congrats to Amanda who said: “I LOVE the simplicity and vintage sweetness of The Illustrated Corner Wreath Wedding Invitation plus all the matching cards/items so that the branding is carried through from the Save-the Date to the program to the thank you note.
