Collectible Polaroid transfers every quarter

Matt Schwartz of She Hit Pause studios takes large-format Polaroids, pulls apart the film and rubs the negatives onto watercolor paper, creating dreamlike transfers described by some as "walking into a memory." Each quarter, you'll receive a different signed 4x5" print, beautifully matted in 8x10".

Waking Dreams

When you sign up, you can select from one of five themes in advance, or choose "surprise me" for a new theme from quarter to quarter. Display your images together as a set, give them as gifts, or trade them with friends.
