Mother's Day Gifting

It's that time of the year again when we celebrate and cherish the moms in our lives. Take time to cherish the precious memories of times shared.

Mother's Day Gifting

Photographs must be one of the most emotive things to give, a permanent memento of that special moment in time that makes up a memory. Here's what RapidStudio has on offer that are just great options!

Accordion Photobooks:

Accordion photobooks are great gifts.  They're super quick and easy to design, and small and compact for handbags. They display 10 images inside, plus 2 on the covers. I love the accordion because it's so simple, they say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, and this product really brings the photobook down to its essence.


The elegance of canvases are always a hit - one large beautiful canvas, or 3 canvases creating a wall-art set. Pictures of family are always the best option, but even if it's images of places that have significant meaning - the flowers, plants or animals she loves - she'll be sure to treasure the memories forever. Canvases are so quick and easy to order; it's a gift you can't go wrong with.

Paint By Shadow Canvases:

Let her get back in touch with her creative expression. It's a great jump-starter product that takes any of the initial apprehension and unknowns out of the painting process.

When you buy a Paint by Shadow canvas, you receive a "guided journey" to a painted canvas masterpiece. The Paint by Shadow pack contains a high quality, hand made stretched canvas and pre-shadowed composition of the image you've chosen. Included is a colour mixing chart to guide the way to the desired colours while not needing to buy an entire spectrum of paints, and a "serving suggestion" of a full colour image of the shadow canvas. Primary paint sets and brushes are also available as an optional extra if required.

Ultimate 100:

Truly the best quality photo books, Ultra high quality prints in a hand crafted butterfly-bound book with genuine leather cover that isn't going to break the bank. We've sized it to be personal and discreet, while maintaining all the quality and expert craftsmanship that the Ultimate range of albums are built on. This is indeed a gift that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Gift Vouchers:

If she's the family photographer, album maker, or RapidStudio fanatic, give her the opportunity to order exactly what she wants. Gift vouchers are a great way to let her choose the gift that will bring her the most joy. I would suggest you send it to yourself when ordering, print it out and present it in a nice envelope with a card. But if she's far away, it can always easily be sent digitally.

Remember, RapidStudio delivers nationwide for free**, so whatever you buy her, we can ship it right to her door for you, free of charge**

** Free delivery on orders over R190. Pricing subject to change, see web for latest pricing and Terms and Conditions

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).

Create a #Hashtag If you went on holiday with a few friends or family members, make sure that everyone uploads their pics to Instagram using a unique hashtag you create, like #SmithFamilyHoliday2017. Check it doesn’t exist already! That way, when you create the photobook, you can search for the hashtag, and find every photo that was taken. An ea…
