Bring your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and desktop images to life with these fun prints on our Instablocks



With the continuous increase in pixels cellphones can now offer, your cellphone has now become your most convenient camera whether you are a professional photographer or simply Joe Soap. Photography is now literally at your fingertips and using a cellphone or a tablet is the most popular mode of taking a photo these days. No longer left to a travel experience, everyday experiences can be captured and shared on social media, inviting your family and friends into your life and special moments.

Images can also be enhanced using filters from these amazing apps such as Instagram, Hipstamatic, FilterGrid, SuperPhoto, Snapseed and Pixlromatic amongst many others .
Instagram is simply a photo-taking and photo-sharing app. Instagram adds filters like retro, black and white or rise, and these can then be shared with sites like Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, and Facebook. It's a simple social network of other people's photos. You can "like" or comment on the photos, and see what's new. It's easy and doesn't take much time or effort, one of the reasons it has become so popular so quickly.

The Hipstamatic app is a simple way to create artistic photos with just your iPhone, and FilterGrid for Android users.
“With several built-in lenses, types of flash, and different films, there are literally hundreds of combinations that can be achieved. But what is really exciting about Hipstamatic is that each photo is unique, a little bit off-beat. When using the Hipstamatic app you never know exactly what you’re going to get, and the hope of something fantastic keeps iPhoneographers coming back to this app time and time again.” - See more about this app here.

"FilterGrid is the best Camera & Photo editor which you can combine multiple filters into 1 photo to create astounding effects. Use the preset 44 kinds of templates and different kinds of filter combinations to quickly show a variety of styles. Of course you can still use the 65 kinds of filter combinations to make your own filter effects. And then you can share your creations to Instagram,Facebook when complete your creative work."

Snapseed is often described as an Instagram competitor. That's slightly true in that both apps allow you to take pictures from your phone or tablet, apply filters, and share them on different platforms. Instagram is much easier to use in a point, filter, share sense. Snapseed is more of an artist's tool with more advanced features. It's the app you use when you want to take longer to make something a little more advanced.

Enjoy taking your photos and sharing them, for those absolute favourites, print them on RapidStudio's funky Instablocks. These 10cm x 10cm mini canvas blocks make a great addition to any living space.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…
