Rendi Story Boards- A Photo Solution & Giveaway

My oldest child is only 6 years old, but technology has changed so much since he was born. The majority of the photos I took of him as a baby were with a (slow, cumbersome) point & shoot. They live on an old hard-drive, and some in my neglected iPhoto library. And though he was our first, and it felt like we took plenty of pictures of him, the quantity has nothing on what I have of my 2nd and 3rd babies.

In a word- prolific.

I believe we are the first generation of parents who will end up with more pictures of each subsequent child than the first, at least for those of us who consider ourselves digital documentarians.

For me, Instagram, in combination with a more than capable phone camera and editing apps, has changed everything. I love how easy it makes taking and curating photos of life’s little moments. They aren’t always the moments I choose to print and frame in large sizes, but it’s a shame that so many live only on my phone in digital format.

So I’m a sucker for ways to get pictures off of my phone and into my home (check out this previous post with more great ideas).

When Rendi told me about their Photo Tag system that works with their Story Boards, I was immediately sold on the idea, and happily agreed to work with them on this giveaway for you all! Because, seriously, I know so many of you are going to love this as much as I do. And I know so many of you are also looking for ways to feature and then store your favorite photos.

So the first thing I did was pick out the design and add a quote- “Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.”– to the Story Board I ordered that came with tag credits. Then I downloaded their app to my phone ( the app is available in the Apple and Google apps store, but you can also order from your computer).

Then- while nursing late at night, which is when I do some of my most important work- I designed and ordered my tags. The process could not be easier. Tag credits include shipping, so there’s no need to enter any financial info once the tag credits are purchased and applied to your account.

I got them in the mail the next week, and promptly hung them up on my board… then wished I had a bigger Story Board! The kit came with an archival quality box where I can store tags as I take them down to make room for new ones….

But the tags are too pretty for me to put away just yet.

I love that I was able to add some details to the back of each tag for future reference when I do get around to storing them, though,

The tag quality is top-notch. They are super thick, very durable, and the photos print beautifully onto them.

Right now, I’ve managed to fit 2-3 on each hook of my Story Board and have fun rotating them with the kids.

And while I really do like the Story Board I created through Rendi, I also think we’ll make a DIY version soon because I’d love to hang these tags in our office, as well. Shouldn’t be too hard to come up with something fun and easy that will be a great backdrop for the Photo Tags.

I also love the idea of taking pictures of the kids artwork, and using this system to display it! Hmmm… may have to work on that, too.

One final note- how awesome would these be for grandparents?! So many times, one of my parents will comment on a picture I post that they really want a print of it. With the Rendi app, I can go in, order the picture on a Photo Tag, and have it shipped straight to them.

If they have a Rendi Story Board , a DIY story board, or just a hook on the wall, they can easily hang it up right away. No need for a frame or to clutter the refrigerator with magnets.

I’m telling y’all, I love this concept. And I LOVE that I get to give one 3-Tag Story Board kit away to one of you!

And everyone gets 25% off everything at RendiStyle.com (except their new Otterbox phone cases) with the code BABYRABIES25 through July 15th.
