Faceblocks: Print Your Social Media Images

Update: since we launched the new site, you can easily connect to Facebook, Instagram, Flickr and Dropbox and select your images directly within our upload window!

Calling all Social Media lovers... We are so proud to announce our brand new product, Faceblocks! Our prices are highly competitive at R45 for a professional print.

Your best photos have been taken with your phone, been shared on Facebook, or filtered and turned into art on Instagram. But they’re stuck on your phone or devices right? Now you can turn them into printed works of creative art for your home.

PrintWild lets you conveniently order your favourite social media pics as Faceblocks. Each Faceblock image is professionally cropped into 150mm x 150 mm squares and printed on high quality board, finished with a protective coating. They are delivered to your door, ready to mount onto your wall.

We recommend printing these products in batches, mounted next to each other. Create your own Faceblock photo wall at home with your awesome social media images, just like this:

This is the style that PrintWild recommends

 What will my products look like?

But how do I upload my image to PrintWild from Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?
  1. You can easily transfer photos from your phone to your computer using the USB device that your phone came with. Your computer treats your cellphone like a digital camera or file system. 
  2. Find the file(s) you are looking for and copy the image to your computer, ready to load onto the PrintWild website.
  3. If you want to save your photo from Facebook, right click on the photo and Save Image As, like this: 
     4.  And upload to the PrintWild site. If you're uploading a rectangular image, we will crop it for you.             Here's what your page should look like:

Kim Gray Uses PrintWild

Kim Gray ordered several PrintWild products a few months ago and shared it with her readers on her d├ęcor, fashion, beauty and travel blog. She used some of the products for her guest bedroom make-over - read this post in her Design Series here.

We love what she's done with the room, and it just proves what a little paint, scatter cushions, some exceptional prints and a whole lot of inspiration can do!

Kim ordered the A2 Ballyhoo Prints of her trip to Morocco. They look great!

This is what Kim had to say about us:
Print Wild offers a fabulous service! Upload your favourite images and have them printed, framed, blown up on canvas, as sticky wall stickers and more! They arrived really well wrapped and protected. I love not having to get into the car! So framing forward with Print Wild!

Keen to redo your bedroom or lounge? Give us a call or email us and we can always give you some advice about what products will best suit you room.
