One of the first things you notice when you visit my house is how much we love photos on our walls.
Photos and other types of frames are everywhere (hopefully in a tasteful way!) but put it this way there aren’t many more places to hang any.
AD | Disclaimer – This is a collaborative post with My-Picture.co.uk, but all thoughts are my own.
But when My-Picture.co.uk asked if I’d like to choose something from their website, I wasn’t about to say no.
This is right up our street and we always have so many pictures we’d like to have on display. We both love taking photos, and albeit we’re not experts, we’ve got some lovely ones of our boys over the past few years.
So obviously we could squeeze a few more in somewhere!
My-Picture.co.uk offers huge variety of products
My-Picture.co.uk offers a whole variety of photo products, whether you want something simple to hang on the wall, or something a little different to give as a gift. There really is so much choice.
Back in the first lockdown we had some doorstep photos taken by a very talented local photographer, and I’d not got round to doing anything with them. So I knew straight away it had to be those that I used.
But the next question would be, how should I get them printed? The choice seemed endless!
On their website My-Picture.co.uk offers NINE different types of ‘wall decoration’ for you to choose from.
Nine different ways to have your photos printed to hang on walls
- Canvas where your photos would be printed on hand-stretched canvas on a sturdy spruce wooden frame.
- Acrylic, where your photos is behind crystal-clear acrylic glass with polished edges for a contemporary look.
- Aluminium where your photos are printed onto an elegant, durable aluminium composite panel for brilliant colours and pin-sharp resolution. These are available with a glossy or matte finish.
- Framed prints with pin-sharp resolution and in a gallery-style frame and mount.
- Wood where your photos are printed on 10mm-thick premium wood with the natural wood grain still subtly visible.
- Acrylic+Aluminium which provides the highest colour intensity and especially shiny appearance and is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.
- MIXPIX® lightweight foam tiles measuring 20x20cm to create an instant photo gallery
- Retro canvas where your photos are suspended between two wooden bars.
- Photo board print which provides the highest image sharpness printed on slim but durable photo board.
I wanted something a bit different as an alternative to all the photo frames we have around our house. I mean seriously, we even have a gallery of 8 iconic black and white photos in our downstairs loo!
So I opted for the photo boards and I’m SO pleased with them. They’re slim so won’t stick out of the wall too much, but the quality of the print is excellent.
I had originally planned to do a gallery of 9 mix tiles but changed my mind at the last minute when I remembered the lockdown pics. I went with 40 x 30cm boards and they’re just perfect.
I’ve already got a photo book of my lockdown pictures as a memory of what was the strangest of times. But that’s already put away in the office, and I know won’t come out very often.
The photo boards mean that I can see these three pictures every day on my landing.
My-Picture.co.uk is super simple to use

You can then zoom in on the photo and drag it to adjust. So you end up with exactly what you want.
