a fun, affordable, and super easy way to print your instagram photos

I had a realization a few weeks ago that when my kids are older, they aren't going to be able to just scroll through the photo library on my phone to see photos of themselves as babies. Somehow, this instant gratification of uploading photos keeps me from printing them off for keepsakes. I also tend to delete the phone version and keep the instagram version of photos I take. With that said, I wanted to print off some of my favorite photos from the past few months that Knox has abundantly blessed our lives. They will soon go into the Knox's memory box and a few will also find their way on to the refrigerator. 



I found an app that is free and super easy to use and wanted to share it with y'all. It's called Printicular and you can download it in the app store. Basically, I downloaded the app, picked my photos, and picked a Walgreens location ((which just so happens to be about one mile right down the road)). I picked them up in an hour and just sat there in the car ooh-ing and ahh-ing over how cute baby Knox is. Yep. Mom status. Baby is in the backseat, yet I'm gawking over photos of him in the front seat. ;)


Anywho, this isn't a sponsored post - I just wanted to share the wealth. I know there are lots of websites you can print instagrams, but I was pretty impressed with the quality and I loved the size that they printed out to be (4X4)...plus I hate paying for shipping. 

((Also, sorry if this is old news to some of y'all. I tend to be late jumping on bandwagons))

Happy Labor Day to my U.S. readers!

love.

  1. You just made me so happy! I'm definitely downloading this. My friends and I like to print photos to give to each at the end of the semester, but this has been hard for me to do with my love for instagram.
    Thanks for sharing!

  10. It is going to be worthwhile for the Instagram users to gain higher number of followers, and ‘Jellybarn’ makes it easier for you.
