Fun Video Conference Screenshot Ideas
Whether you’re screenshotting a candid moment on your call or coordinating something together, your screengrab is the perfect photo to add to a personalized product or gift. Here are some screenshot ideas to get you started.
- Strike a pose: Choose a funny or cute pose — like a peace sign or toasting with a drink — and take a screenshot when everyone’s ready.
- Spell out a funny message: Use pieces of paper to all spell out a message in your screengrab. Spell out “congrats” to celebrate a graduate or a wedding couple, or “happy birthday” for a virtual birthday party. Make sure that whoever is taking the screengrab coordinates with everyone so your letters appear in the right order!
- Coordinate outfits: Wear fun onesies or dress up as if you were actually going out.
- Create a shape: Use your arms and any tools around you to create a shape, like a heart, on the screen to get a cute screenshot.
- Turn on fun filters: Let everyone choose their favorite video conference filter, or all choose the same one, to get a hilarious screenshot you’ll be excited to show off on any custom product.
- Celebrate graduation: Wear your cap and gowns to celebrate your achievements together in one screengrab. If you don’t have a cap and gown, each student should wear their new college’s sweatshirt to show where they’ll be heading next year.
Now more than ever, it’s important to stay connected with friends and family. While social distancing has become our new normal, video conferencing gives us the ability to communicate with our loved ones while staying safe at home. When you create custom products from those moments, you can turn precious memories into special keepsakes.
