8 Unique Ways to Print Your Instagram Photos

True confession: I’m addicted to Instagram, and I don’t care who knows about it.

I use the social media platform to document my own life, and keep careful track of the lives of everyone else I know (and even some people I don’t actually know!). So it’s no surprise that I’ve recently taken my Insta love offline in order to discover a whole host of services I can use to print my fave Insta pics. Here are my favorite options for Insta printing:

Social Print Studio

If you’re looking for lots of printing options, then Social Print Studio is your one-stop shop. This service offers all of the standard choices including photo books and calendars, as well as some specialized choices like metal prints, photostrips and posters that display between 50 and 200 of your fave Insta photos.

Print Tip: Create a poster that documents the growth of a child, grabbing pics from when they were a baby, all the way up until their last birthday party. Or create a poster to commemorate a specific event; take lots of Insta pics at a friend’s wedding, then create a large poster for them documenting the evening after their big day.

CanvasPop allows you to take your Instagram photos and turn them into stretched canvases to hang around your home. You can choose from a variety of canvas sizes that might work with your space.

Print Tip: Use a photo from a recent trip to create some art to hang around your house. Landscape or architectural shots would work well if you don’t want to choose a photo with people in it.

Artifact Uprising

Artifact Uprising has some beautiful products for photographers and Instagram lovers. There are art prints in varying sizes and paper weights, framed prints and books. But my favorite item is their wood block + prints. These look fab sitting on a desk or a countertop, and best of all, the photos can be easily switched around.

Print Tip: If you’re a quote lover and like to share inspiring words on your Instagram feed, choose 12 of your favorites and print them out to keep on a wood block in your office.

There are some interesting options on Sticky9 including iPad covers and photo magnets, but my favorites have to be their reusable stickers. You can stick and restick these on any smooth surface.

Print Tip: Choose your fave Insta photos and use them to stick all over your computer, desk or even your fridge.

Casetify allows you to create custom cases for all of your smart devices (from iPhone 4s all the way up to the latest model). You can also create cases for Android phones and even the Apple watch.

Print Tip: These would make such a perfect gift for new parents, grandparents or even an Auntie.

Photo by: Postagram


This app is loads of fun as it allows you take one of your Insta pics and turn it into a physical postcard (with a pop out pic) that gets mailed out to someone.

Print Tip: Use a Postagram instead of a holiday card or birthday card. Or send them out as save the dates for an upcoming event.

Photo by: ImageSnap


ImageSnap allows you to take your pics and create ceramic tiles. These tiles can be installed as traditional tiles (with grout) or can be used as small magnets.

Print Tip: If you want to get super-duper creative, you can use these tiles for a small backsplash in a guest bathroom or in a laundry room.

Photo by: Stitchtagram


I might have saved the best for last as Stitchtagram has some truly unique offerings. My favorite has to be their Instagram dog bed. But they also offer other fab items such as throw pillows, coin purses, zip pouches, tote bags and even a photo ottoman.

Print Tip: The ottoman or pillow would make a truly unique gift for a recent grad going off to college.

Transfer to Planters

This fun packing tape image transfer method is perfect for adding your Instagram photos to little flower pots!

Transfer to Planters

Take a laser-printed Instagram photo and firmly cover it with packing tape, leaving a tape border around the edges of the image. Submerge the tape in water for a few minutes.

Transfer to Planters

Using your fingertips, gently roll the wet paper away from the back of the tape until it feels smooth. The ink will remain on the tape, and the paper will wash away. Let dry completely. When the tape becomes sticky again, just stick your image to the front of your succulent pots!
