Lovely new polaroid instagram prints…

Earlier this month I decided to bite the bullet and get some of my instagram pictures printed. I’ve been talking about doing it for ages but somehow it never gets done! My original plan was to print them via photobox or one of the many other photo printing websites, but luckily for me I saw a blog post where the author talked about the app Pologram – I can’t seem to find the original post anywhere so I can’t tell you who suggested it – sorry. I thought I’d take a peak at the app and see what the fuss was about.

It turns out it’s a great app where you can order you’re photos on your phone and they get sent straight to you. I ordered 21 polaroid style prints for 10 euros (£8.50) on Sunday night and they were delivered to me by Friday morning in a plain brown envelope. Inside the plain envelope was the cutest pink envelopes I have ever seen, and these are what had my prints in.

As you can see below I ordered a selection of prints from recent trips away, last Christmas, my trip to Oz last year and a few of my favourite people. I’ve stuck a few up at work to brighten up my desk area, while the rest will be making themselves at home in my bedroom. Once I decide how to display them that is!

I’m so pleased I finally got these printed. I really do think that instagram prints fit so perfectly with polaroids particularly because they are square photos. I soon discovered that the best instagram pics are the ones with borders as this really makes the photo stand out more. That’s my opinion anyway.

What do you guys think, are you tempted to try it out?

  1. Cute, I didn’t know there was a service to get them printed straight from your phone!

    I’ve been using http://www.poladroid.net which is super cute.

    It sits on my laptop as a desktop icon, so you just drag a picture file into it, and seconds later it makes the sound of a picture being taken, and you either wait for the picture to develop or you shake it!

    If you drag the same original file, you’ll see that no two pictures look the same, an authentic polaroid feature!

    Lots of love
