In this digital age where we are constantly Instagram-ing, texting and emailing our photos, sometimes it’s hard to remember to stop and print them once in a while. If you’re like me and not shooting a lot of film these days, you may get nostalgic thinking back to the time when you’d get so excited to pick up your photos from the print shop to see just what you captured. Those old photos and memories are invaluable to me now, lying beneath the  clear, sticky pages of the albums lining my bookshelves.

Today, my camera roll on my iPhone has 2,481 photos on it ( I do not recommend this!) Most of the photos are just languishing there on my phone, hidden away from the world, and it just seems wrong. Enter PostalPix. A fast and easy way to print photos right from your mobile phone. The app is free and available for both iPhone and Android.

I’ve used PostalPix to order lots of photos over the past couple of years. I love the simplicity of the ordering process and the quality of the prints…and they are delivered right to my door! Just download the app, and with a few taps of your finger your photos will be on their way.


I’m personally fond of the square prints, but you can also order 4×6″, 5×7″ or 8×10″ images as well.

It’s so fun to share these little square beauties by sending them to friends in the mail (you remember the mail, right? you put stuff in an envelope, add a stamp and drop it in that big metal box on the corner of your street…?) Muse Meghan has been the lucky recipient of several PostalPix snail mail deliveries from her Instagram friends @chelsealee, @cottage960 and @ajbbents.

And Muse Holly has done her share of PostalPix ordering as well. Just check out this stack of prints!


So how about you? Have you tried PostalPix yet? Well whether you have or you haven’t, we’ve got two special treats for you today!

1.  Starting today July 22, through Wednesday July 24 you can get 20% off any one order* with PostalPix by using the code mortalmuses at checkout.

2.   And that’s not all, we’re also giving away a PostalPix aluminum print*! Infused onto 1mm thick aircraft grade aluminum in various sizes, turn your mobile photos into a work of art worthy of hanging on  your wall. Just leave a comment on this post between now and Wednesday July 24 for a chance to win an aluminum print (you choose your image, in either 8×8″ or 8×10″). I’ve got one of my self-portraits on 8×8″ aluminum and I love how it came out.


*Please note that PostalPix currently only ships within the U.S., so if you are one of our readers from outside the states I apologize that the discount code and giveaway don’t do you much good unless you want to order and ship to friends or family in the U.S. I’ve been told by PostalPix that international shipping is coming soon, so stay tuned.

Good luck to all, and remember to use your discount code and/or leave a comment on this post to win the print by Wednesday July 24!
