• USB Stick
• Each of our prints is supplied with seven files and is typically less than xGB.
• USB Sticks are no longer made that small… 8GB was the smallest I could find.
• They are physically small! Be sure not to loose it on the way to the store or in your pocket
• I recommend a cap-less water-proof USB stick on a keychain to be sensible, or something cheap and cute

Photo Frames - Amazon

There are many incredible frames available. However, there are some important points to consider before your purchase a print frame:
• Avoid hanging in direct sunlight as this may lead to color fading
• An inner card frame (mat)
• Glass protects your artwork from fingers and dust. Can be reflective from certain angles
• Museum Glass
• Glass strength
• Tempered glass
• UV protection
• Moisture proof, anti corrosion
The frame below is available with up to 14 openings for 4x6 prints!
