On average, people take around 20 photos per day. And when you're on vacation, it's only natural to photograph a lot more - meaning your camera's likely to be chock full of images by the time you get home. Few of these pictures will ever be seen in print - but it shouldn't be that way!

Below we've listed the most important reasons to print your travel photos. We've also included some cool suggestions for what you can do with your vacation photo prints, so make sure to read till the end!

Let's get started!

Print Your Best Photos to Keep Them Forever

The reason we print photos less often these days is that there are so many other ways to store photos, from hard disks to cloud storage. But some of these storage methods can be risky - if you keep all your travel memories on your computer or smartphone, for example, they can malfunction or get stolen. Memory cards and USB drives, meanwhile, are small and easy to lose. So what should you do?

Well, firstly, there are more secure digital storage options. The experts recommend external hard drives and cloud storage as reliable ways to store your digital photos. 

But another great way to save your photos from digital obscurity is to print them. Having both physical and digital copies of the best pictures from your travels means you'll never lose them because of some tech bug or laptop coffee accident.

Print Photos to Relive the Best Moments

Of course, the main reason people print their photos is that physical images just feel more meaningful. Travel photos printed in stylish, innovative formats - think canvas prints or metal prints for example - can be a wonderful source of daily inspiration. Printing your vacation pics means you'll be able to relive your greatest travel experiences any time you want - and plan future adventures too!

Use Travel Photos to Decorate Your Home

Printed travel photos can become an organic part of your home's decor scheme too, contributing to the overall aesthetic and showing your globetrotting attitude. Here are the easiest, most effective ways to use your holiday memories as part of your home design scheme:

  • Hang a single extra-large print on an otherwise bare wall. Choose a photo of the great outdoors or a breathtaking urban panorama and create a showstopping statement wall.

  • Design an eclectic gallery wall, mixing and matching photos with other travel-themed items: tickets, postcards, maps etc.

  • Strew your room with printed custom textiles such as personalized blankets, pillows etc. 

Wall art is a natural focal point of any interior - and if it's your own travel photos you're displaying, your prints are bound to be great conversation starters too. So if like most of us you love telling people about your latest trip, that's just one more reason to decorate with travel pics!

Create Unique Gifts and Souvenirs

You can of course buy souvenirs in a tourist shop. But while a plastic Eiffel Tower or an "I Love NY" T-shirt can raise a smile, the chances are that they'll then be left in storage for decades.

So why not try a different approach and use your most beautiful travel photos to create personalized gifts. They can be functional - think printed mugs, mousepads, tote bags, and so on - or purely decorative. Our team particularly liked the acrylic glass blocks available at CANVASDISCOUNT.com. These miniature charmers will make genuinely unique souvenirs.

While printing your photos and including them in your home decor takes more time and effort than just posting them on social media, it's definitely worth it.
