Get Creative With "Mosaically" (Review & Giveaway)


I've never been much for being "creative", besides the occasional crocheted scarf I'm more the store bought stuff. Guess that's why I'm so fascinated with Mosaically.

Never heard of them? Well they pretty do what their name says. Simple. As. That.

Mosaically is a FREE service for making and sharing photo mosaics created using your very own personal photos or those off the web. The company will print your mosaic (on Epson Premium Luster Professional Photo Paper) and ship it directly to your doorstep for as low as $15 per square foot on all print sizes and $10 shipping. Prefer to do things yourself? Download a high resolution copy of your mosaic for $30.

 It's also super easy to create one; only 2 easy steps:


The site gives you the option of using your Facebook profile and it's photos/your friends photos for the mosaic, although I wouldn't recommend this since I personally don't want other peoples photos mixed in. To each their own, I guess.

A few weeks ago I was give the opportunity to create and order a mosaic and used one of my instagram photos and a few random pictures off the web.

Creating the mosaic was very quick and fun. The prices are a little on the steep side, ranging from $45 - $245; sizes go from 18"x24" to a gigantic 42"x56". Customer service is pretty quick to respond to all of my inquiries, tracking was easy & convenient  and the shipping of my mosaic photo was very quick, about 3 days. The photo itself was printed on sturdy photo paper and showed my photo(s) (big & small) clearly.

The only advice I have when creating your mosaic, make your photo tiles a bit on the smaller side or it will distort the larger photo. Also, don't be afraid to play around with the sizes of the tiles and update/preview your mosaic many many times. Practice makes perfect.
