There are less than 3 weeks left until I officially graduate, get my Bachelor degree and start a new chapter of my life. In the celebration of that, I decided to revamp my study/work desk because, ya know, I wanted something new! My desk had stayed the same for pretty much the entire college years. I think it’d be totally appropriate to change it up for my after-college life.
**Printiki reached out to me and let me try their printing service free of charge but all of my opinions are 100% honest and based on my own experience.

I’ve been seeing vision boards/grids everywhere on Instagram and Pinterest. They are simple yet very pretty and I definitely want to have one of those as a decoration for my desk. However, buying them can get a little expensive. After Printiki reached out to me, I took a look at their Instagram and saw this photo. It gave me a huge inspiration.
Here is how I recreated it!
What I used:
White grid (I got mine from Daiso for only $2)
Binder clips (I used small and tiny sizes in black but you can use any size and color you prefer)
Photos (Mine were printed by Printiki – keep reading to see my thoughts on their service)
Command hooks (For my grid, I used 3 to hang it)
The process of putting everything together was very easy. Seriously, it took me less than fifteen minute. First, I decided where to put my grid and dotted some marks on the wall with a pencil so I knew where to stick the command hooks. My grid is fairly smaller than the other ones I saw on Instagram or Pinterest but it fits the space above my desk perfectly.
Next, I adhered 3 Command hooks where I previously marked. I love using Command hooks and tapes for hanging because they are relatively cheap and easy to use. Hence, they don’t leave residues behind when I remove them. Highly recommend!
I, then, picked out some photos from the stack that I printed with Printiki and hung them on the grid with some binder clips. Now, what left to do was to hang the entire grid onto the Command hooks. Done!
You can be more creative with the decoration but I decided to keep mine vision grid simple. I think it goes very well with my white desk. I’m so happy with how it came out. Having a vision grid above my desk reminds me of happy moments I experienced. I just feel all pumped up and excited every time I sit at my desk.
Before Printiki, I’d never tried any online printing services before (except Walgreens) so I didn’t really know what to expect. What surprised me is that the ordering process was super simple and self-explanatory. As a first time user, I had no problem navigating around the site. Printiki lets you connect with Facebook, Instagram and even Dropbox right from their website so you can easily pull photos straight from these outlets. I thought that was very convenient. You also have the option to upload photos from your computer.
The quality of Printiki print is exceptional. Some of the photos I used were pulled from Instagram and they weren’t in good quality. I don’t know how Printiki did it but my photos came out so nice and sharp. I couldn’t ask for more. Printiki offers many different print styles: square, polaroid, white border, black boarder, glossy finish, matte finish, etc. You have a lot of options to match your creativity.
Overall, Printiki has everything you ask for in a printing service. They provide high quality print, easy peasy process and fast service. I just lovelovelove. Highly recommend y’all to try them out.
