Indie Mats - An Awesome New Product For Your Clients

I've been using a product called IndieMats for over a year now and I absolutely love them. My wife and I are big DIY'ers and decorated our daughter's room with them by creating a large collage of funny photos at a fraction of the cost of traditional frames.  It's an awesome new way to display your photos with unique wall decor. I just saw that Mpix picked up their line of products and is now offering  Indiemats for sale in the Mpix store to go with your prints. If you sell prints to your clients then this is an awesome solution.

I feel guilty on a regular basis for not printing out more photos for my family and friends, considering the frequency at which I have a camera in my hand creating them. I take photos every single day and always have a camera with me, especially now with the iPhone 5s. One of my 2013 goals was to print more for my family and friends; Mpix and IndieMats have really helped me feel less guilty. I've even given them as gifts on a number of occasions, and I encourage you to do so as well. You'll feel all warm and fuzzy inside when the photos arrive at your door, or when you give them as a gift. So get up, peruse your hard drive, and get to printing because there is no worse feeling than losing or misplacing photos from a special event or vacation from human error or a hard drive crashing. So get to printing!

It looks like Mpix is offering the IndieMats in a variety of colors/designs including Island Time, Geo Color Block, Moroccan Infusion, Maritime Adventure, Pacific Melody,  and SketchBook. I'm glad Mpix picked these guys up,  so now I can just place one order and save some money. If you are in the business of selling prints, frames, products to your clients, then I would definitely add these products to your arsenal.

Too bad there's not a way to swap out the photos when the mood hits you without ruining the board and your wall. Good luck to anyone who can get these lined up exactly straight and perfect like in the picture. :)
