Pictli - Review and Discount Code

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I'm an advocate of capturing memories.  Almost everywhere I go, I have a camera in hand.  Looking back at photos and reminiscing over memories fills me with joy.  Photos of family and special occasions adorn my home.  I've also been known to give photo gifts for birthdays, weddings, and other events. 
A fairly new company, Pictli, has made photo gifting easy with their photo framing service.  Pictli allows consumers to send a framed photo gift from their mobile phone, laptop, Facebook, or Instagram account.

I received the opportunity to experiment with Pictli and discover how the whole process works.  The entire operation went seamlessly for me.  The hardest part was deciding which frame I wanted to choose.  There are several frame options available, ranging in color and design.
You simply choose a photo and then choose a high-quality, hand-made frame from their catalog and optionally add a gift note.  Pictli then take care of the rest with high quality nine-ink printing, frame assembly and matting, gift wrapping and the gift card all included in the price.  If you choose to use Pictli via your mobile device, you will need to download the free Pictli iPhone app.

I went with the option of choosing a photo from Facebook.  I was able to zoom in or out, and center the picture to where I wanted.  I then went through all the frames to see which I liked best with the photo.  I ended up choosing a black frame with a white matte.  Afterwards, I was able to personalize a gift card and request the gift wrapping. 
The photo I chose was of my husband with our six kids.  The photo gift turned out exceptional and I was quite pleased with it.  I now have it set on top a nightstand.  Pictli's photo framing service was convenient, effortless, and reasonably priced.
