Displaying Our Memories with My-Picture.co.uk

**Advertisement Feature**

I love taking pictures and I love looking back at them years later even more. There is just something so precious about being able to capture a moment in an image and be able to look back at it in years to come and still be able to feel that day in your mind. The sand in your toes or the waves crashing around you, the sun on your skin or a family member who might not be here any more. 

Photos are more than just pictures for me and whilst I love taking them, I hold my hands up and admit I am rubbish when it comes to printing them out or displaying them as much as I should! So when the lovely people over at My-Picture.co.uk asked if I would love to give them a try I knew it would be a great chance to get some of the memories I had captured made into canvases to display. 

If you haven't heard of My-Picture.co.uk, they are a photo printing service who aim to bring you the very best quality photo products at a great price too. They offer photo printing on everything from high quality canvas, aluminium, wood and acrylic as well as framed prints and photo gifts such as mugs, puzzles and even personalised cushions.

Since I have so many pictures I wanted to print, I decided to go for the MIXPIX® tiles. MIXPIX® tiles are made from a lightweight foam core and thanks to being so lightweight, and the adhesive Tesa tape, they will stick to almost any surface without the need for drilling or nails. As we rent this sounded perfect for us as we try to avoid hanging to many pictures with nails into the walls. 

When the tiles arrived I was immediately taken back by just how light they were! However despite feeling super light, the quality on these tiles was amazing. The colours really popped and none of the image quality had been lost in printing at all. 

The MIXPIX® tiles measure 20cm by 20cm and are just over 1cm in thickness making them a great size to create lovely collage displays on any wall. Thanks to the Tesa tape you can mix up your photos and change them around as much as you please. The tape stays sticky to enable you to remove and move around the tiles. I did find however that the tape became less sticky each time so it may be worth applying a little more of your own tape if you wanted to keep moving them regularly. 

MIXPIX® tiles would make a great gift idea starting at around £5 per tile, as well as being the perfect way to redecorate any room with minimal effort or fuss, great if you rent or don't want to damage walls or wallpaper by hanging nails or hooks. I love how easy the tiles were to hang and that they sit completely flush to the wall too. 
I was so impressed with our tiles, both the quality and vibrancy of the images. Sometimes the quality of an image can be effected by printing however that definitely wasn't the case here and the finished tiles has a slight gloss feel finish to them which finished off the images perfectly.
