"The Earth is Art, the Photographer is only a Witness."
Yann Arthus – Bertrand, Earth from Above.
Every day we receive hundreds of images from you that we have the honour to transform into prints. We know that each and every one of these images is close to someone’s heart, because they contain a unique and precious memory. Whether it’s a special person, a fleeting but all the more beautiful moment in time or a place that you have grown to love – photographs have the power not only to capture but also to preserve those truly wonderful moments in our lives that we never want to forget. Ever.
We are completely aware what a privilege it is to handle those memories for you and to turn them into a something that you will be able to touch, see, display, smell, send or carry with you wherever you go. Something your grandchildren might look at and relish in 50 years time. To imagine the joy in your eyes when you receive your prints and to hope that those keepsake images will transport you back to that glowing memory which can warm your heart, even it’s just for a split - second on a dark and gloomy Tuesday morning…. is why we love our job and believe in what we do.

Have you ever wondered who the guys behind Inkifi actually are? Let me introduce you to the two lads who happen to be the thinking heads behind the brand – the founders of Inkifi. Jim and Paul met way back in the 90s, in a little surf town in North Wales. They immediately clicked because, for all their differences, they shared many passions and interests, the most important one being their love of the great outdoors, surfing and a curiosity for everything around them... read more
The Beauty Of Print
First of all, why would anyone still want a printed version of their images in today’s digital world? Surely this is just a waste of money when there are so many websites that display your photographs in a modern, stylish and adequate fashion! We couldn’t disagree more. Printing is an age-old technique that started more than 2000 years ago in China but really started to take off in the 15th Century and played a key role in the development of the Renaissance, the Reformation, the Age of Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution... read more
Your images tell a story. Having your photographs printed allows you to share and remember this story with the people that are closest to you. We believe that this is a beautiful and age-old ritual that has more relevance today than ever before. That’s why we love doing what we are doing. Making your favourite memories tangible and lasting couldn’t be more of a fulfilling task in our view. There are many stories which are too private to tell, too intimate to be spread beyond your closest circle of friends and family. There are some visual stories, however, whose purpose it is to be shared with the world. We want to make Inkifi a platform for this, to connect you - photographers and visual storytellers out there - with each other, give you exposure and showcase your work through Inkifi... read more
