Instagram photos are fun, but staring at them on your little smartphone or tablet screen can only give you so much joy. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for cool professional photo printing services and unique photo gifts that let us show off our perfect (to us) square pics. And now we’ve found some more excellent options from Artifact Uprising.
The same sister-team behind these beautiful custom photo books our readers went crazy for, is giving you three gorgeous ways to take your IG pics–or really, any pics–from screen to real life with, including their newest offering The [Signature] Print inspired by the kinds of prints that tend to have the photographer’s signatures on them.
And yes, the brackets are theirs.
Press-printed on an ultra-thick white stock, your favorite photos end up looking perfectly matted and ready for framing. The paper is heavy — kind of board-like — and has a slightly textured matte finish, making even the simplest snap look like a master work of art begging to be displayed prominently. Think holidays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, grandpa’s birthday, new baby…because one of these prints has favorite gift ever written all over it.
Of course if you have an awesome, professional printer at home and a ton of ink on hand, plus some serious art paper you can DIY. Us? Not so much. And without handy photo printing shops on every corner any more, I like that you can go right to the website to choose from any of the four sizes, all printed beautifully, all for the same price. I tried it out and was completely wowed at the results. [Editor's Note: Nicole is not easy to wow.]
I almost want to take of picture of the pictures and print that out. Yes, meta.
[Signature] Prints are available on the Artifact Uprising web site for 29.99. Also, if you want to get the best shots of your kids for your prints, check out these six easy tips for taking better Instagram photos in the Cool Mom Tech archives.
