To paraphrase Shakespeare in a particularly egregious manner: To print or not to print, that is the question. Whether 'tis nobler to keep your photos stored on your phone, or to take arms against a sea of digital archiving. Printing your photos is an art that has died a bit of a death over the past decade, with most of us keeping our most treasured memories tucked away in a folder on our phone.

However, a new campaign, led by photographer Fabrizia Costa, encourages us to break our photos out of their Gorilla Glass and aluminum alloy prisons and commit them to paper.
