Creating a postcard out of a picture is a simple task, and does not cost much at all. And this gesture can certainly impress your recipients.
Canvas Prints: If you’ve got some really high quality shots that you put a good amount of effort into, get them printed on canvas and then hang them in your home. They become great conversation pieces and are much cheaper than buying art of a comparable quality.
Use Photos To Create And Decorate Objects Around The Home: You can print a plethora of pictures and stick them on your wardrobe door. This way you will remember the beautiful times you had on your vacations every time you get dressed. In addition to this, you can decorate other objects in your house such as, doors, wall clocks and book shelves to make the entire place look more exquisite and present more of your personality.

Instead of purchasing fridge magnets from the market, you can use your travel pictures to create your own, engrave them and place them on your fridge. You can make mini Polaroid magnets with white board, basic cutting and some creative skills. This way you can always see all the captivating places you have visited every time you enter your kitchen.

Additionally, you can use white and black colours, or even tinted pictures.
