Artifact Uprising and a Beautiful and Appealing Way to Display Your Photos


W hen I was in design school the whole carrying around a large black portfolio case was more or less on it’s way out. No one was displaying their work this way anymore, and if you did, you were dating yourself. But this was pre the iPad days so portfolios were still presented non-digitally. And a big trend was displaying your work as a book with examples printed on single pages and bound like a traditional book. I used a site that was intended to make photo books, but really anything can be printed between the pages. Well fast forward a decade and this trend is still going strong, only there are more companies to choose from and the end result is more sophisticated. If I were in school today I would definitely use Artifact Uprising.

They offer hard cover books with jackets, softcover books, boxed sets of traditional sized snapshots, larger single prints for framing, photo holiday cards, photo calendars, post cards and more! Everything is printed on beautiful, sophisticated, luxurious paper and presented in clever and appealing ways. In fact I am so excited with Artifact Uprising I am thinking of redoing my portfolio. And you know us bloggers…what a perfect excuse to do a book of all our looks, right? I mean how cool would that be! And wouldn’t be awesome to star in our own coffee table book? Prices range from $18 to roughly $100 so it is certainly affordable. Much move affordable then any of this would have been back in the day via an offset printer. I would be exited to see the books you, my lovely readers would create.  So get your DIY on and make a statement!
