In 2006, I bought a digital camera and learned photoshop where I created 12×12 scrapbook pages of my boys. Unhappy with the 12×12 prints, I set out to find a way to print better quality at a lower price than Costco, and Persnickety Prints was born.
I was scrappy and resourceful, taking out an auto loan against my car and maxing out credit cards that I would quickly pay off, Persnickety Prints and Persnickety Box are both self-funded, debt-free companies.
My childhood is documented on VHS tapes that I can’t watch.
I’m passionate about storytelling with photos and the archival process necessary for them to last. We convert your digital image and process it like film (yes, we have a darkroom) by embedding the image into silver halide paper (no ink!) that is fade, scratch, and water-resistant, lasting 100+ years. Technology evolves quickly. Like those VHS tapes, I’m not certain we’ll be able to read a JPEG in 20 years.
Print your photos!
