Pinhole Press Product Review

I'm not one of those fancy bloggers who gets incentives for reviewing products, though I'd like to be! In fact, I found Pinhole Press through said fancy blogger and I had a great experience, so I'd like to share.

Pinhole Press is a online shop for beautiful, customizable photo products and gifts. I'm not talking about how CVS can slap your photo on a coffee mug or mouse pad, these are high-quality products like stationary, photo albums, wine labels, calendars, etc. You pick your desired product and template and then customize it yourself right from your computer.

My first experience with this company was when I ordered boxes with custom labels for our wedding favors. We wanted to give each guest a mini cupcake upon departure from our wedding as a little midnight snack and thank you for joining us on our special day. The bakery that did our wedding cake specializes in mini cupcakes so we wanted to incorporate those yummy treats but also include a message from us. The solution was Pinhole Press favor box labels*. I was easily able to personalize them with a photo and text that was printed on sticker labels to adhere to the favor boxes that held each cupcake (assembly required).

Within a week of placing the order I had received the items directly to my doorstep without complication. All we had to do from there was assemble the boxes (thanks mom and dad!) and then I had a few of my bridesmaids help me place one mini cupcake in each box and adhere the custom labels. We did this the morning of the wedding so as to keep the cupcakes fresh. Lastly, they were displayed at the exit of the reception for our guests to take home.

I was so pleased with how my order turned out that I also used Pinhole Press to print some wedding thank you cards using one of my favorite photos from our wedding. They even had a perfect oak tree template to match the theme we used for our invites.

Yet again, the ordering process was smooth and delivery was quick. Once our thank you cards hit mailboxes I received no fewer than four texts about how beautiful the cards were and specific comments about the texture and quality of the paper. I look forward to more opportunities to order items from Pinhole Press and have my eye on their photo books as a possibility for our wedding photo album (aka, #16 on my 30 Before 30 list).
