Turn your photos into beautiful gift wrap

--------------------------------------------
The Indiegogo campaign has ended.
Visit www.picpaperie.com to learn more.
--------------------------------------------
We thought it would it awesome to be able to take our favorite photos & turn them into something that can make gifts even more personal - something unique you can give to others that represents your relationship with them. With the holidays right around the corner, the idea of gift wrap using Instagram* photos was born. Using specialty wide-format printers & high-quality paper in San Francisco, we want to bring the idea to you.  We've called it PicPaperie!

At the end of the project, we will provide a simple mobile app and website for you to select your Instagram* photo (using the Instagram* API) and a pattern for your gift wrap.

We will print your gift wrap in San Francisco, California and deliver it your home or office.  (Note: shipping is included in the United States but shipping fees are additional internationally).

We will offer approximately 2" and 4" sized photos in staggered tile and straight rows & columns.  In the future we will consider more patterns as well as other ways to add your photos from other services.

Will I receive the gift wrap before the holidays?

Hanukkah starts November 27th and Christmas is December 25th. We're committed to ship early bird awards before November 27th and all other Indiegogo orders before December 18th.

How and where will you print the gift wrap?

All printing will occur in the San Francisco Bay area. We will be using advanced generation high speed professional ink-jet printers on high quality acid-free ink-jet paper to produce high quality prints.
