Personalisation is bigger than ever, from homeware to gifts we can't get enough of products that show personality – what better way than using our own photos on homeware.
Can you remember the last time you actually printed a photo? In this modern age we live in a visual world thanks to the various social media apps that document our entire lives in picture form, but so often that’s the only place they live – in the cloud.
The new online store miPic is set to change that by allowing you to effortlessly upload your photos and create instant artwork, accessories and even pieces of clothing using your very own pictures.
Whether you take endless photos of your food, relentless selfies or panoramic landscapes you can now free your favourite photos from your phone by creating bespoke artwork and accessories for your home. And should you choose to, make some extra cash by sharing your uploads with the world and earning 20% commission.
There’s feature walls, and there’s feature walls! Imagine one of your own pictures gracing the wall of your living room. Obviously a selfie is not going to do this service justice but if photography is your thing you probably have an endless camera roll of snaps to show off proudly on walls.

In addition to uploading your own pictures there’s an option to buy accessories using photos uploaded to the site by amateur photographers and artists who can make 20% from the sales of a print – a great outlet for up and coming creative talent.
All of the miPic luxury products are made here in the UK, supporting home-grown talent too.
