Lately, I’ve been looking a lot into printing instagram photos. Instagram is probably my favorite social media at the moment. Shocker right? I love looking through pictures of people’s lives rather than reading about it. I’ve also thought it would be nice to print some of the photos and use for various projects. I’ve found quite a few different products and I’ll share my thoughts on them with you! The first company I want to share with you is Snapstagram.
The concept behind Snapstagram is really simple, they print your instagram photos! The set up and format they use is really simple and the prices are good too! Both their classic prints and DIY prints are just $6 for 12 4×4″ images and it includes shipping! You can also get a simple photo book with 20 prints in it. The photo book is also 4×4″. The size of the images make them really fun to share and use. The process for ordering is really simple. You can login with your Instagram account or create an account with your email address. Then you can start ordering your Instagram photos! They are also going to add a feature soon that will allow you to upload photos directly. All of the photos are printed in the 4×4″ square format. I loved being able to easily scroll through my instagram feed and select which images I wanted to print.
The process to order is really simple, but there are a few down sides. You can only order one copy of a particular photo per set. At the moment it doesn’t allow you to change the quantity of each photo. But, since I just wanted the prints for myself I wasn’t planning on ordering more than one anyway. When you are creating a photobook, plan out the order of your photos before hand. There isn’t a great way to rearrange the photos once you’ve selected them. The photos are entered in the order you select them.
As far as ordering loose prints, you have the option to do either “Classic Prints” or “DIY Prints”. The classic prints feel like a normal printed photograph and have a luster finish. If you aren’t familiar with the term, luster is in between a glossy and matte finish. It looks really nice and professional. The DIY Prints are probably my favorite. They are printed on a heavy stock paper and have a semi-gloss finish like a postcard. They feel great when you hold them and can be used for projects too. They are meant to hold up with gluing and mod podge so the possibilities are endless!
I love that the photo book is also the 4×4″ size so it fits easily in my purse, which makes it nice for showing people if I’m on the go. It would also make a great gift! You could create one for parents, grandparents or friends! It’s so simple and you could easily add a personal touch by creating something fun on the cover or writing notes on the pages inside.
Once you’ve ordered your prints, it takes about a week for them to come. Overall, I was happy with my order. While having everything digital is nice, sometimes its fun to have printed photos too! Snapstagram is a really simple way to convert your instagram photos to a fun project or gift in no time! Be sure to enter the giveaway below by November 18 to win some prints for yourself! The winner will receive one set of classic prints, one set of DIY prints and one photobook.
