ways to use your instagram photos | remembering special moments

I’m addicted to taking photographs and putting them on Instagram, but I don’t have time to constantly scroll through my feed to remember special moments. This is why I rely on different apps to print my Instagram photos and even turn them into fun items like stickers and magnets. Today I’m excited to share my all-time favorite apps! Here are ways to use your Instagram photos:

Printic for Instagram Photos

1. Printic
This is one of my favorite apps to use with Instagram because it’s simple and fast. For only $0.99 each, Printic will turn your favorite Instagram photos into glossy, fun polaroids. I was able to choose seven photos from my Instagram feed, customize them and submit my order within minutes. The best part? They were shipped to my house within a few days. These vintage-looking polaroids are so cool.

2. StickyGram
Because we spend a lot of time in corporate housing, it’s important that I have photographs scattered around our apartment at all times. I love being reminded of family, friends and special moments every day, plus photographs make our apartment feel more like “home”. With Stickygram I’m able to turn my favorite moments into magnets that I can use everywhere. This works out well because some of our appliances need to be dressed up! Stickygrams come in packs of nine and are $14.99 per sheet. Be sure to follow them on Twitter for special sales.

3. Artifact Uprising
I recently stumbled across Artifact Uprising and knew I had to share the awesomeness with my readers ¬†because their products are unique and made from recycled materials. They will use your photographs to make hardcover and softcover books, square prints, and my favorite… a pine calendar.

4. Postagram
Everyone likes sending postcards, right? Well now you can send your photos as real postcards with Postagram. For $0.99, your “postcard” will be sent to someone via snail mail. I love the idea of this because it’s very personal and you can even use them to replace boring cards.

5. Artflakes
Artflakes is similar to Stickygram but turns your Instagram photographs into large stickers. How fun is that? To order, simply go to their website, log in with your IG account, and your photos will be pulled directly from your phone. You can get 10 stickers for $20.86, 25 for $41.86, and 50 for $62.86.

How do you use your Instagram photos?

    So cool! Thanks for sharing. I just recently started printing my Instagram photos, but I’m having such a hard time finding cute collage frames for square prints. Maybe the magnets would be a good alternative!

    I love the Polaroid idea for instagrams! I had one of those cameras growing up. I miss it! Were Polaroids already vintage back in the 90’s? :o)

    I’m still pretty new to the whole Instagram thing after resisting it for the longest time, but some of these ideas are so cute! I particularly like the magnet idea. :)

    Thanks so much from following me, Rachel! It makes me super duper happy when I see “bigger” bloggers follow me! I love your blogs lots too–especially these adorable ideas! I collect postcards, especially vintage ones, so I’ll definitely have to try making some postcards out of my pictures. I hadn’t even thought of that idea! xx

    I don’t have instagram, but I do print a lot of my photos. I had a wall in my room at uni that I covered in photos that I’m proud of having taken, of friends, of family and of special places that hold special memories. I was gutted when I had to take it down when I moved back home for summer :(
