I unsucessfully attempted to print my Instagram photos via a one hour photo printer (Walgreens). Instagram photos are meant to be printed as squares which unfortunately isn’t an option at my Walgreens.
After some investigation, someone recommended a free app called Postal Pix. Postal Pix quickly downloaded and I was able to create a free account. I could then decide on the size pic(s) I wanted:
4 x 4 Square
5 x 5 Square
8 x 8 Square
4 x 6 print
5 x 7 print
8 x 10 print
They also allow you to purchase a Mouse Pad or Aluminum Prints (yep, photos printed on metal – absolutely stunning but spendy and more geared toward home decor).
After uploading my pics and inputing my information, my photos arrived less than one week later:
When it comes to my photos I can be a bit impatient because I’m always ready to scrapbook my pics but when I opened the package (I ordered all 4 x 4 squares) I couldn’t be more happy with the print quality and the size (which fit nicely into my Project Life – We R Memory Keepers 4 x4 page protector page which includes 9 prints). The company did a great job capturing the effects and colors of the digital image which included photos that had been edited using both the Instagram features and Hipstamatic features (both are photo Apps on the iPhone). Whether you’re a scrapbooker or you’re just ordering prints, the squares are PERFECT.
