If you’re like me, you use instagram on your iphone… a lot. I have an entirely separate blog of instagram photos — mostly of Clive and the dogs :) And if you’re even more like me, you’ve wondered how to go about printing these bad boys.
Well, off to google I went. I found Printstagram and ordered a set of 48 miniprints. When I tweeted about this, Monique responded and told me about another service — PostalPix. Several people asked if I’d share my experience, including so and so, but I decided I’d listen to Monique’s advice and try out postalpix.
Prinstagram. I got the stack of business card-esque prints in about two weeks. I’m a very impatient purchaser — so this was a negative for me. I forgot I had even ordered them, to be honest. But they did ship from China — so I don’t think that they were being lazy. It just takes a long time to get to the States from China. Trust me, I know. I’ve made that flight many, many times :P
When I opened them, I thought that they were pretty dang cool! The square image is quite small — but that makes it kind of a fun little thing to have. If this was all I had ever tried, I’d definitely be happy with them. I’d probably take thumb tacks and post them all over my computer desk, or something. Just to see a collage of all 48 mini prints. The collage is $12 and then $6 for shipping — so $18 for 48 mini prints.
PostalPix. PostalPix is definitely the clear winner here. The prints are 4×4, they are totally affordable, it’s an iphone app so you can order straight from your phone, and I ordered on Tuesday and got the prints in the mail on Wednesday. Not next week Wednesday… I mean the very next day! I think I paid like $12 including shipping for 40 of these much larger prints. So it’s actually less money for a larger, better (imo) print.
So, for me, PostalPix will be what I use most often. Prinstagram still has some cool things — but for some simple, lose prints that aren’t teeny tiny, are totally affordable, and will ship out super quick, PostalPix is the clear victor here.
