Meet the Makers 01: Social Print Studio
By now you know I love taking photos, but you know what I miss?? Printing them. I have files stored on my laptop, on memory cards, backed up on a server or a “cloud” somewhere, on my mobile devices, and then on all my social media sites. But no actual prints of anything. So imagine how thrilled I was to hear about Social Print Studio and all the fun and creative ways they can print out my favorite digital files. They offer a wide range of services, including Printstagram to create nifty products with your Instagram photos, Print Studio to print images straight from your iPhone, and Blueprints for your Facebook pics. And there are so many other things they can do—even as far as piñata-making, too. Definitely check out their site for some gift-giving, project-making and event-planning inspiration.
Last week they invited me over to their studio and I seriously had a blast trying to capture every detail in their space: the taxidermy wall, the music room, the wood shop, and all the hidden nooks where someone may or may not be sleeping. So many random surprises! And nothing but super cool folks with lots of talent and good collaborative energy going on. I swear this has to be the most fun spot to work in all of SF! And ironically I had stopped in at Mixed Nuts a week prior and heard about their collaboration with the studio to furnish and design the space. So the timing of these two visits couldn’t have been more perfect.
