If I had a pound for every time someone offered to send me a canvas print to review, or to print my Instagram pictures into fridge magnets or similar, I’d have at least enough money to buy my own canvas print, the size of an entire wall in my house (and yet here I am, with a Cheerz review).
Of all the random things I get offered to review – like Tena Lady or Love Logs – printed paraphernalia is the one that tops the frequency charts. Now, because I don’t want to turn my house into a cheap looking gallery, I almost always say no.
A few weeks ago though, I said yes, to a company called Cheerz.
(I’m trying to put this into context for you, making the point that the product must be good for me to say yes to reviewing it. I feel I’m labouring it rather though now, so I’m going to stop.)
I said yes to a Cheerz review for a number of reasons:
- They asked nicely.
- The website and app looked stylish, and easy to use.
- The quality looked good.
- They did some fun looking products, that I hadn’t seen anywhere else.
All good reasons, and they didn’t let me down.
One of the basic products of course, which then features as part of others, is your standard print. I opted to have mine done in the polaroid style, because I am super cool like that obviously, and I was really impressed by the print quality. The colours were bright and the finish was sharp. They looked ace. They would look great in all sorts of circumstances, like pegged onto a pretty string over your desk, stuck up on the fridge, in albums – pretty much anywhere.
The basic prints then come as part of a variety of packages. You can get them in big boxes, little boxes, or, my favourite, as part of a DIY photo album. We created a couple of these, based on recent family trips, and not only was it fun to look back at the photos and stick them in, but we now have memories of the trip that we can cherish forever. Useful for me, especially as it’s not that long since I briefly forgot where we even live.
This is the Big Fat Box:
They also offer quirkier products, like photo strips, so you can create your own 1980s style photobooth photos, and framed posters and prints. These would be brilliant for showcasing your family photos, or, if you’re selfish like me, you could make a print for your office of some of your favourite Instagram pictures. It’s not that I don’t love my children, but I do like plants and pretty cups of coffee.
The whole process is incredibly straightforward if you get the app for your phone, as it can simply pull photos from your device or your social media accounts. There are options on a lot of the products for you to add your own text to customise the prints, which is a lovely extra touch. Delivery was prompt, and the packaging was good and robust.
Overall then, I was really pleased with the service, and with the results. Cheerz is definitely one printing service I won’t say no to – and I’m finally glad I said yes to the Cheerz review!
I was sent some products for the purposes of this Cheerz review but all opinions are my own.
