If you’re one of those people who’s been awoken in the middle of the night by a photo falling off of your wall, you may want to consider what SwapSnap is trying to offer. Essentially, they’re a photo printing company that is trying to let you print your images with them and hang the images on your wall without damaging your walls. Essentially, the system uses a grippy surface that sticks to your wall and then uses magnets to hold the photos up. You can then place photos slightly over one another in an overlay fashion.
The SwapSnap seems like a great product for those of us who actually care about printing and hanging our images. But the only thing that isn’t quite clear are their paper offerings. Sure, you’ve got an anti-glare surface but depending on where the light is positioned in the room that you’re putting the photos up, you may want one surface over another. By far though, matte paper is best for small apartments. Canvas works well too.
One thing is for sure though, the prints are super affordable. If you look at the Kickstarter rewards, you can get quite a bit of bang for your buck. You even have options to customize the look. SwapSnap works with landscape and portrait oriented images and you can choose to configure them to look like Instant prints too.
Be sure to check out SwapSnap on Kickstarter. If they get the funding they need, they’ll ship for October this year–which hopefully they’ll be able to hold themselves to.
