What Can We Use Our Print Credit For?

Printing your photos is an essential part of your proposal, wedding, and family photography experience. While we benefit from the digital world in many ways, this investment you are making in photography does not. Social media will not be around forever. You are at risk of losing important digital content. This includes these cherished photos. This is why I build prints right into my photography packages, often in the form of a print credit.

Your print credit can be put towards many different kinds of printed photography. Below, I have shared examples of prints you might like to highlight in your home.

Lay-Flat Albums

When you can’t pick just a few photos, albums are the best option to hold your special memories tight.

These premium, hard-cover albums are soft-bound and printed on high-quality photo paper. There is a minimum of 20 pages and a maximum of 80 pages. Each spread of two pages features a lay-flat design so that your photos can fully fill the page without a seam down the middle. And each page can feature several photos, giving you loads of space to feature every single one of your favourite photos.

Albums are available in a variety of hardcovers including leather, linen, canvas, and faux silk. You can custom-design and order your albums right from your online photo gallery.


Folios feature two or three photos printed on professional semi-gloss paper and are framed with a white mat. These elegant handmade folios include two or three sealed prints and are available in a variety of linens.

These little books make great gifts for grandparents and kids, as well as excellent guest signing books for anniversaries and vow renewals.


For superior strength and durability, canvases are finished with matte archival lamination and stretched on solid pine wood. Canvases can feature a black or white wrap or a sleek natural wrap will create beautiful image continuity, adding dimension to your photo.

With clean lines, your canvases will never go out of style. And you can use them to create a beautiful family feature wall that you can add to over the decades.

Framed Prints

Frames feature professionally-printed semi-gloss, fine art, metallic, and matte prints set in a box-styled frame made of upcycled or reclaimed wood. They can include acrylic to permanently seal your print. Your prints can be treated and framed with no front glass to eliminate glare entirely.

A selection of frames can be designed and ordered from your online gallery. Even more wonderful, you can work with my local woodworker and me to design your one-of-a-kind frame in hardwood, reclaimed barnwood, and even live edge.

Acrylic Prints

Acrylic prints feature your photos on professional, metallic photo paper finished with a clear acrylic. This combination highlights vivid details with rich colours and adds a dynamic depth that is truly stunning.

Acrylic prints can be ordered in limited sizes from your online photo gallery. Smaller sizes are also available for order directly from me. Your small acrylic blocks feature especially thick acrylic, which makes it possible for you to stand them up on side tables, picture shelves, and bookcases.


Press printed on Fine Art Smooth Silk paper (270gsm) with a smooth suede finish, these beautiful cards are perfect for the holidays and feature a choice of silver, gold, and copper foil lettering. Greeting cards come in a single-image pack of 24 along with white stationery envelopes.

You can design your own greeting cards and foil cards in your online photo gallery. You can add and change text, change foil colours, font colours, background colours, and include multiple photos. Alternatively, you can order custom-designed cards directly from me.

All cards come with envelopes.

Thank you cards, condolence cards, and generic photo cards featuring local landscape and still life photography are also available for purchase from the Ridiculously Happy Ppl Etsy Shop. Tap right here to purchase cards, send them to the people who mean the most to you, and put smiles on their faces.


Bring a little love into your space with these beautiful, custom-designed calendars featuring your favourite memories. These 12-month calendars are available in multiple languages and starting any month of your choosing. They are printed on fine art paper and feature 12 of your favourite photos to enjoy throughout the year.

Calendars come with a handcrafted wood stand display or metal clip. You can design and order your calendar from your online photo gallery. You can also purchase calendars featuring photos you’ve taken yourself from the Ridiculously Happy Ppl Etsy Shop (tap here).

Metal Ornaments

These metal ornaments are the perfect medium for preserving photos. Your ornaments’ colour is infused into the surface through a unique process which creates superior-quality. They also include decorative natural fibre twine ribbons to hang your ornaments with.

You can design and order your ornaments from your online photo gallery or purchase them featuring photos you’ve taken yourself from the Ridiculously Happy Ppl Etsy Shop.

Gallery Boards + Matted Prints

For a decorative piece that’s ready to display, gallery boards and matted prints are the way to go. Printed on your choice of semi-gloss, fine art, metallic, or deep matte paper, these prints can be finished for durability and long-lasting quality. Both gallery boards and matted prints are perfect for displaying on their own or in a custom frame.

Gallery boards and matted prints can be custom designed and ordered from your online photo gallery.
