If you are a reader of my friend’s Julie Fei-Fan Balzer you probably saw her fun post about what she did with those photo booth strips that she and I took during her visit here in Hamburg. I totally love what she did with them – and I cannot wait to see it in person. At the end of her post she asks “What have you done to display your photo booth strips?” – and here comes my Blog Response 🙂
A couple of years – many years ago – my husband and I took a photo strip at a booth in San Francisco. It was one of our first really big trips together and I totally love this little photo strip. I went to a professional photography studio and asked if they could print it on a very large and long canvas. The photo strip itself on the canvas is now 4.5×24 inches- just to give you a reference – here is a pic of me sticking my finger out- so you have a reference 😉
At first the photoplace wasn’t weren’t sure it would work because of the resolution of the photo booth strip (my photos here are actually a bit blurry but the print itself is not) and because it is so much smaller than I then actually wanted it to be printed – but it worked – And I love love love it. It wasn’t cheap as I remember – I am sure you can get it cheaper nowadays – even just scan it in at a very good resolution, maybe play a bit in photoshop and then upload it to any of those services that do print photos on canvases. It is a great memory 🙂
Maybe I should have the Julie and Nat photo strips printed on canvas for my new studio 🙂
Have a gorgeous day
