Prints c/o Polabora website

If you've read my blog for a little while now then you will already know what a huge fan I am of vintage and photography - put them together and well, I'm in Heaven. Polabora are a website completely adhering to people like me who love all things retro and want their photography to be incorporated into that also. As someone who owns a couple of polaroid cameras herself I was interested to see how the Polabora prints would differ and if the quality would be noticeably different too. I picked a fair few photos from my personal archive, Instagram and Facebook albums - some of which had been taken with a disposable camera so already had that retro feel anyway. The whole process of picking, uploading and choosing which photos worked best within the frame was a doddle and the website was really straight forward - great for an impatient person like me.

The sets I were sent are called Polabora Original and Polabora Retro Strip - both giving you that vintage effect and a nice little keep sake for those memories you want to keep on show. Mine are currently plastered across my wall alongside my actually polaroids and they fit in perfectly. The image quality - considering I was uploading from Instagram as well - is really good, not a blur in sight! - my favourite of the two sets has to be the Retro Strips though. I love that you get three different photos aligned together into one nifty strip, it reminds me of the photo booths you get in Topshop and Rough Trade. There's not a lot of difference between the polaroids I was sent and the photos I've taken with my own polaroid camera so if you don't have the money to invest but still want the effect these are definitely the way to go.

Want more good news? Type in VELVET when you go to pay on Polabora and you'll receive 20% off all their products. The code is valid until March so happy snapping!

  14. I used to take so many polaroids at parties with friends when I was a kid! My parents got me this SUPER cool Polaroid camera from Spice Girls (hahhaha!) as a birthday gift and it was all the rage.

    I recently got a Fujifilm but nowadays I don't shoot as many polaroids as I wanted - it can get pretty expensive to be honest, so this is a great alternative to have your photos printed!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! What a great find, really like your blog :) x
