A new year brings the promise of new memories created with the help of friends and family. That’s why we created the #12PrintsProject – a project to inspire you to turn 2015’s favourite photo memories into a photo art journal that you can look back on.
We’ve challenged six top Canadian parenting, design, and lifestyle bloggers to take on the #12PrintsProject and tell their 2015 story through 12 photographs. Throughout the year, these bloggers will share their favourite photos, tell the stories behind them, and show how they turned them into art with Posterjack.
Meet Our #12PrintsProject Bloggers
