Where Can You Print Instagram Photos? 4 Ways It’s Hip to Print Square

print instagram logoWhere can you print Square Instagram Photos Online?

I was recently on Instagram looking at dog photos, and saw that they currently host over 30 million photos tagged as #dog. Smartphone users are uploading a lot of pictures to Instagram / Webstagram, and they are being seen online, but most of these amazing photos will never get printed.

The good news is that the big online photo services are starting to get hop to square photos, as until recently, there were no square sizes to choose for printing. Between the vintage filters, and the square shape, these prints can end up having a nostalgic attraction like the Polaroid pics we used to take as kids.

Here are a few of the best options for printing your Instagram photos:

square instagram prints from snapfish

Snapfish – Instagram

Snapfish does a great job of handling your Instagram photos. After uploading them to Snapfish.com, (they have a free mobile phone app) check out their new “Deco Prints,” available in square, 4×4″ size. (shown above)

Deco prints are printed on premium, heavy cardstock, and coated with a velvet-soft matte finish. Perfect for those retro-looking Instagram filtered pics. Right now they are running a promotion so these run about 50 cents each, which will probably go up soon. Look for a coupon to bring that back down.

Maybe Walgreens isn’t as cool as some of the hipster photo sites out there, but they do print square photos (4×4″ and 8×8″) from your Instagram pics.

Easily upload photos from your smartphone (or other photo sharing sites) to their site, you can pick these up at a Walgreens photo center in only an hour, or have them shipped to you.

Like the other top photo printing services, you can choose to print your square Instagram photos on dozens of gifts like photo mugs, photo calendars, and many more.

Shutterfly – Instagram

shutterfly square instagram photoI was disappointed to see that Shutterfly isn’t offering square prints yet, but they look like they are on the verge. They have a wide selection of photo gifts specifically designed to incorporate your square Instagram photos, (Instagram photo gifts here) and make it easy to upload photos directly from Instagram.

You can also easily incorporate them into standard photo calendars, photo mugs, and even birthday

Among the printing options are 8×8 and 12×12″ scrapbook pages, a large square 12×12″ acrylic or canvas print, if you are looking to frame a photo, or hang it on the wall.

Note: If you want to print 4×4″ square prints, (of your Instagram photos) you need to download the Shutterfly iPhone App from iTunes store! It looks like you can’t access the 4×4″ printing option otherwise. They seem to push Instagram users to the app, as almost all square photos are probably coming from Instagram on smart phones, and it’s just easier that way.

If you are using Shutterfly’s website (not the app) to print them, be sure to crop the image down to a square, (using their “custom crop” tool) and try using a black background. Before adding them to your cart, I recommend using the “matte” paper, especially if you’ve applied a filter to the pictures.

You’ll probably end up hand trimming the black border off, which isn’t a big deal, especially if you’re putting them into a square frame. You’ll save money this way too, as standard 4×6″ prints are cheap to print.

Printstagr.am

Printstagr.am reminds you to “make squares not war” when you arrive at their site, so printing Instagram pictures and photo gifts / products is the focus of their whole business.

Besides various prints, (including cool mini prints) they also offer photo books, mini photo books, stickers, frames and posters which can feature dozens of pics at once. Pretty cool! Check them out here

I plan on adding to this post soon, as the landscape for printing Instagram photos is changing quickly as photo services adapt to this wildly popular new photography format.
