What is a “Tonki”?
With a few quick and easy steps, the flat sheet takes the shape of a frame with your photo right in the center. The nice thing about it is that you don’t need any extra tools to fold the recycled cardboard.
Although they print your photo directly on the typical havana cardboard, they still manage to achieve bright and colorful results. You should not, however, compare apples and oranges and expect museum-quality fineart outcomes – like you may have seen in $100+ original photo prints on aluminum backing. One Tonki currently sells for $12.99 (resp. 9.99€) plus shipping and is 10 x 10 inches in size.
Once you have fully assembled your print, you can decide whether you want to hang the photo somewhere on a wall or utilize the fold out stand.
We especially liked the idea of setting up a 2×2 or 3×3 photo grid on a blank wall, because the squares then form a visual unit and generate a nice symmetry.
From time to time we want to showcase cool and creative new ideas on our blog. Things that came as a pleasant surprise – in this case the Tonki prints. Yet, we are in no way affiliated with, sponsored or endorsed by Tonki S.r.l.
What do you think about these? Do you plan on ordering one for yourself or do you already own some?
