Sharing your favourite photos on Instagram is fun, we get it! You upload the photo, maybe add a filter to it, include a caption with some hashtags, post it, and watch the likes and comments roll in. The problem with sharing photos on Instagram though, is they only get a very limited time in the spotlight, if at all. Why not turn your Instagram photos into wall art so you can appreciate them for years down the road? In fact, printing your Instagram photos guarantees your friends and family will be liking and commenting on your photos long after the virtual versions are forgotten.
How to Print Instagram Photos
Printing your Instagram photos has never been easier. From our website, simply choose the photo art product and size you want and then click on the Instagram icon from the upload options.
In order for us to extract the image, you will need to connect your Instagram account, which is quick and easy, and you can log out afterwards if you like. Once your account is connected, simply choose the photo you want to print!
But How Do You Print Someone Else’s Instagram Photos?
Whether you want to print a friend’s photo as a gift to them or you want to print a family member’s image without logging into their Instagram account, there are several instances when you may want to print someone else’s Instagram photos (just make sure you have their permission first). You could take a screenshot of the image, but the quality won’t be as great as if you had the original file. If you have a low-resolution image, it means you will have to print at a smaller size, which might not be what you’re looking for. To get the best possible version of a photo when you don’t have access to the original file, you can use a third-party app like DownloadGram. Just go to the Instagram photo you want to save, copy the URL by clicking on the three dots located at the top-right of the image, and then select Copy Link. Paste the link into the DownloadGram box and follow their steps to save the image.
Now For the Fun Part
Now that you have the Instagram photo you want to print, it’s time to turn it into wall art or desk decor! Although we offer several different photo art products, here are a few options that work well with Instagram photos.
Posterjack Wood Prints are full of character, completely unique, and made from Canadian birch wood from a certified renewable resource grown specifically to be harvested, so we’re never harming old growth forests. Your photo is printed directly onto wood, so the texture of the wood grain shows through where there are lighter colours in the photo. The wood’s natural warm tones and grain become a part of your image, creating a stunning effect that lends a subtle vintage feel to your photo. Even better, everything is made in-house – even the wood is cut, sanded, and routed in-house.
Posterjack Wood Prints are great for Instagram photos because of the natural filter-like effect they give an image, and also because the texture and organic tones and grains of the wood will help hide any flaws in an image, so if you have a lower-quality shot, it won’t be as obvious as if you were to print on something like glossy photo paper or acrylic.
Canvas Prints are another great option for turning your Instagram photos into wall art. Similar to how our Wood Prints can help hide flaws, our Canvas Prints are also forgiving thanks to the beautiful textured canvas weave, photo imperfections are softened.
Because of their style versatility, Canvas Prints are a great option if you’re printing your Instagram photo as a gift for someone. They’re classic and timeless, making them a natural fit with all decor styles. In addition to our regular Canvas Prints which come in over 30 different sizes, we also have Canvas Minis that are available in 6”x6” and 5”x7” sizes. Turn your Instagram photos into wall art by displaying several Canvas Minis in a gallery wall display!
Speaking of minis, we have a whole line of desk decor products that are perfect for Instagram photos thanks to their small format. We’ve just introduced you to our Canvas Minis, so here’s a little information on our other desk decor products.
A Posterjack Acrylic Block is made from a perfectly clear, one-inch thick piece of premium cast acrylic that captures and refracts light in a way you just have to see for yourself! This photo art product is perfect for those Instagram photos that have vibrant, bright colours and high contrast.
Woodstand Prints are uniquely crafted and made from select Canadian Douglas fir and renewably sourced in British Columbia. We print your photo on a durable ¼-inch thick board and combine it with a sturdy wood stand. High contrast images look best with this product and image imperfections are softened, making it a great option for printing Instagram photos.
Idea: If you’re feeling crafty, you can paint and lightly sand the wood stand for a rustic look, like what was done in this room makeover.
We took our ultra-premium HD Metal Prints and shrunk them down to the perfect desk decor size. Loved by professional photographers, these Metal Minis will make your best Instagram photos look even better!
