Simply Amsterdam polaroids


Love my polaroid prints from Via Martine. She offers different printing products like single and double cards, calendars, magnets and 15x15 cm forex prints, all printed directly from your Instagram. Take a look at some of my card designs printed by her on my Facebook page and I don't think you'll regret a visit to her lovely webpage either:) Simply delightful!

Happy to finally find use for them:) Here are some examples of what you can find and buy:
