Have you ever taken the quiz to find out what your Love Languages are? If you haven’t you can do it here!
My official Love Language is Acts of Service, but I feel like it should be gift giving 😝. Nothing gives me more life than coming up with a genuine gift for someone. Something that’s practical, not “cheap” quality, something that won’t be dropped off at the thrift store the first chance they get.
Lucky for me, I’m a photographer which means pictures are my specialty!
I’ve been through my fair share of gifting companies, starting with the typical drugstore & big name companies you’ve probably already heard about. That’s when my friend Whitney introduced me to Artifact Uprising. They live by Purpose Within Product. They believe materials matter and design defines. That’s why you’ll find recycled papers and reclaimed options throughout their product line — made with love in the USA. Learn more
Their products are easy to design with their online editor, all you have to do is drag and drop! They even have an app that you can order beautiful products from. Gift giving is a piece of cake through their site – when I order gifts for my clients, I have the packages shipped directly to them, I get to include a gift message for free and they don’t get a printed invoice showing how much I spent!
But enough with the boring stuff, you’re here for the pictures, right? Here are my FAVORITE products from AU. If you find something you like, use my promo Elle15 you can get 15% off your entire purchase on their site! Gift giving season is upon us, people! Don’t let time slip by.
Be sure to tell me if you get anything from my list! I hope you can discover why I love this company so much and continue to give them my business.
This was the OG gift I started with. I love this photo box because you can change the picture out so easily! And AU’s everyday prints are top notch. They’re not just printed on regular photo paper, they’re printed on durable matte stock and feel so amazing. You can get them printed with or without the white border (as shown in the next gift). Not an #ad.
This gift is also amazing because the recipient can order more prints as they hit more life milestones! Buying a house? Graduating? Having a baby? They’re set for life – literally.
I usually order the Birch wood box with 10, matte, 5×7 Everyday Prints.
Comes out to $63.75 with my discount code Elle15.
I looooove this frame! It gives off fancy vibes but is surprisingly affordable! It’s a relatively new item on their site, but I have ordered more than a few and have had some very happy brides! Not an #ad.
I order this frame in Brass with 10 bordered prints (that are included)
Comes out to $48.45 with my discount code Elle15.
As much as I dread to admit it, that time of year is coming and you can’t let it get away from you! Don’t let the end of the year come and go and wait till the last minute to order your holiday cards. Or any other celebratory cards for that matter. Whether you’re announcing a graduation, a baby, or a wedding, announce it in style. #ad
Artifact Uprising has come up with some pretty sweet designs, and you can customize the back of your card to whatever you want! I always like to include our pets on the back of our holiday cards because they can’t usually make it to our photoshoot… especially now that we have the snake.
If you’re a planner aheader (not like me) then you probably already have a doc ready to go with all your addresses on it so you can upload the file and have AU print your return AND delivery addresses on the envelopes for you!
If you’re a procrastinator like me, you can settle for just getting your return address printed. One less thing you have to worry about!
Here are the specs for my Christmas cards: 5×7 Contemporary Holiday Card – Greeting Merry – Copper Foil Printing – Gold Luster Envelope – Return Address Only
I’ll be sure to update this post as I explore more amazing products from Artifact Uprising!
