Have you all heard about Parabo Press? It’s a brand new app and photo printing service inspired by small batch printing processes – and it just launched yesterday! Like most parents these days, most of my photos of my kids live on my phone, so I’m always on the hunt for new ways to print those photos and display them at home – or even give them to family as gifts!
Parabo Press is from the team behind Photojojo, which joined forces with photo printing service Zoomin in 2014. Parabo Press printing processes are optimized for the photos on our phones – no DSLR required! Although of course they will work with DSLR photos, too, but it’s awesome to be able to format and print right from your phone. Parabo offers art book-quality photobooks, small prints in geometric shapes, square photo prints, and accordion photobooks.
I’m most excited about the Parabo Press larger art prints, including huge 3′ x 4′ black and white engineering prints, risograph prints, and full color newsprints. At price points of $20-$30 the art prints are ridiculously affordable! The risograph prints might be my favorite of the bunch. Risograph prints are printed on Xerox-esque machines that originated in Japan in the 1980s and have a screenprint-like effect. The risograph prints are available in neon pink, neon orange, teal, and blue. It would be amazing to print a favorite photo of my girls in one of those bright colors! And my mind is absolutely spinning thinking of all the party and wedding possibilities, from cocktail menus to seating charts!
In addition to prints and photobooks, Parabo Press offers fresh and modern display accessories and hardware for hanging the prints on the wall – no framing required! I’m loving the custom wood rails, mylar tape, and pon pins that allow you to pin photos on a wall or cork board without putting a hole in the photo! Genius!
I’m having a MAJOR pom pom moment these days. It’s not like pom poms ever go out of style – especially when it comes to curtains and blankets – but I really just want to put pom poms on all. the. things. Baskets? Yes! Shoes? Yes! Here are a few current pom pom favorites!
1. Blabla mobile

3. Moroccan pom pom blanket
4. Proud Mary pom pom throw (and pillow!)

I’m in LOVE with these colorful fabric banners from Sharp Tooth Studio! Of course I love the “sisters” and “unicorn” banners for my girls’ room, but I wouldn’t mind having one of the larger banners for my office! So good.
