TurnGram will professionally edit and deliver your photos directly to your door

Who needs photo prints when you can just store all of your pictures in the cloud? Or share them online? Well, just as vinyl enthusiasts have revived the once-ailing record format in the age of digital music, one company is hoping to similarly appeal millennials’ sense of nostalgia with a nifty new service that takes photos from Instagram and turns them into printed copies.

For a few bucks a month, TurnGram will select photos from your Instagram feed based on instructions you give them, then professionally edit and deliver them directly to your door. Part of the fun is not knowing exactly which photos will be selected, meaning you get a surprise in the mail each month. The company certainly makes a convincing argument for its usefulness: When we are constantly updating our digital spaces with the latest photos of our lives, why shouldn’t we do the same for our homes? “Your surroundings will always be up to date with the latest moments, joys, and accomplishments in your life,” writes the company on its website.

TurnGram comes along at a time when there has been an uptick in the market for more traditional forms of photography, with major camera companies like Kodak and Polaroid releasing updated models of their old-school instant cameras. As OLIVER Group CCO Brian Cooper astutely points out in a recent op-ed for PSFK, new technologies do not necessarily mean the end of older ones. Just as there will always be a use for the pen in the age of keyboards and computers, printed photo momentos will remain even as millions flock to Instagram and Snapchat.
