Saying Goodbye

TinyTiles was found in January 2013 from a simple hobby Kat does on her free time. We still remembered that we wanted to make TinyTiles not just for our friends, but also for others whom are looking for alternative gift ideas.

It was a tough decision but one that we have to make. Due to our work and personal commitments, it is time that we say good-bye. We are heading for new adventures and even though we aren’t sure what they are yet, we are certain they will be awesome.

Each photo we received tell such warm and joyful memories and it has been a joy working on so many beautiful photos the past 3 years.  Thank you for the support i.e. trusting us with your photos and we will definitely miss engaging with you guys. Wishing you great adventures in the new year! Take care!

Thin Photo Magnets

We love taking photos everywhere (really) and we are also always thinking of new ways to bring them to life. Afterall what’s the point of photographing your loved ones and keep all the memories in your phone or hard disk?

We are always listening to your feedback about how lovely the Tile Photo magnets are but also want some variety or keeping the weight low for ease in gifting them out to friends.

Presenting to you our second product under TinyTiles which stands 5cm by 5cm tall. It is just as cute as a square like the elder brother Tile Photo Magnet.

Each box comes with a set of 9 Thin Photo Magnets, which made gifting these for friends such an ease anytime, everytime.

5 photo apps we LOVE!

“A memory is a photograph taken by the heart to make the special moment last forever.”

We often receive images from you guys that are in rectangular shape. This usually happens as photos are either taken from DSLR/Digital camera or mobile phones which may not have the “square photo” format in them. As our products require photos to be in square format, we usually assist with cropping. Sometimes we had to place it in white borders to fit the entire photo without cropping any important details.

We also receive requests from you to assist with adding words etc (which we are unable to do 😦 ). Hence we figured we should write about our favourite apps to help you with orders in future and also create more beautiful images as memory keepsakes!

1. VSCOCAM

An entirely free app, this is our go-to app when editing our product photos. It offers a preset of 9 filters for you to choose from and the fun does not stop from there. You are also able to snap photos through the app (there is square grid too!) and do basic editing like cropping, exposure, contrast, saturation, sharpness and more.

If you like to have a wider variety of filters, you can purchase them through the in-app store. VSCOCAM also update free filters when they collaborate with various artists!

2. Phonto

Picsart is THE app where anyone can become a master of editing photos. It is a all-in-one app for both your artistic and editing needs which includes easy-to-use photo editor, collage maker that allows you to create photos in square grids or free form, photo overlays and many more!

4. Squareready

You have a photo that you can’t crop into square grid as you will cut someone off the image? Fret not as this app will help you make your photos into square shape or “Insta-size”. Not only that, you can choose the color of the background and upload it instantly on Instagram. Other functions include Text input, stickers and frames, crop and straightening etc.

PS. For Android users, you can search through Play Store using keyword “insta square” and will have a wide range of apps that function the same as Squareready!

5. PhotoGrid

Do you prefer to look at multiple images in one photo because it reminds you of more beautiful memories? PhotoGrid is one of the most popular app that helps combine them into one in square shape/ “Insta-size” or free form. They have a wide range of layouts for you to choose from and piecing the perfect collage.

So there you go, our Top 5 Photography Apps we always go to when editing photos or making TinyTiles for ourselves. We also hope this helps you in any ways when collating photos to make them into Tile or Thin Photo Magnets. If you have any other questions that weren’t covered in this entry, please feel free to leave a comment and we will try to respond as much as we can!

It was fun collating this entry and we hope we can come up with more guides in the near future. 🙂

 

Trivia: Do you know that newer phone models like Iphone 5/6 or Samsung S5/Note 4 can set camera to take square photos?

Cease of Free Local Postage Promotion

Hi all!

Thank you for the support in 2013!

This is long overdue but we would like to inform our customers that with effect 1 December 2013, the free local postage promotion will not be valid.

We will charge the postage cost based on the weight of your package. We referred to Singpost’s costing and do see below for the price of local normal postage for some commonly ordered quantities:

3 TinyTiles: $0.80

6 TinyTiles: $1

9 -12 TinyTiles: $1.50

15 – 18 TinyTiles: $2.55

For orders of 19 and above, we will only be able to either do self collection at Raffles Place Mrt station or mail the package out by SMARTPAC at a cost of $4.70. This is because Singpost do not allow us to mail such heavy packages through normal or registered postage.

Thank you for reading the above information and we look forward to making more TinyTiles in 2014! 🙂

Make TinyTiles!

Collage pricing 1– All prices are in SGD & non-negotiable –

Each TinyTile is 45mm x 45mm tall. Although the size of your Instagram image is the perfect match with our TinyTiles, we will try to minimise any image distortion as much as possible! 🙂
