If you’re anything like us, your smartphone’s camera roll is packed with amazing photos of the people, places, and things that matter most to you. The lucky ones might make it to your Instagram feed to be “liked” by friends and family. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could somehow turn those digital keepsakes into tangible objects for your home?
With Simply Framed’s Print & Frame service, you can easily print and custom frame photographs from Instagram, Facebook and almost any other digital platform where your fave photos live. The images on your feed and in folders are just waiting to be transformed custom framed digital photos that make you smile whenever you see them (well hello, #happywalls). And what’s more, it’s easy to do.
Here’s how it works:
1. Start at printandframe.simplyframed.com. Click “upload your photo” and choose from online sources like Instagram, Facebook, Dropbox, and Google Drive.
2. Select your size. We can print and custom frame digital photos from 8x10” to 30x40”—so feel free to get a little bit wild. You want to frame that poster-sized image of your dog? Go for it! And if you need to print even bigger, feel free to reach out to us about a special order.
3. Choose your frame. From sleek and modern Metal Frames to classic Gallery Frames to ornate Antique and Certificate Frames, we’ve got so many options to choose from—and once you’ve loaded your photo to Print & Frame, you can see how it looks in each beautiful frame style before you make a decision. Whether you’re looking for something minimalist to barely accent a colorful vacation scene or something fancier to add special focus to a family photo, you’re sure to find the right custom frame for your Instagram photos.
4. To mat or not to mat? We’re big fans of choosing a mat when custom framing personal photos. A gorgeous landscape or blown up travel shot is often the exception. You can always reach out to us with questions to ensure that those custom framed Instagram photos turn out just right. Click here for some of our most handy tips for knowing when (or not) to choose a mat.
5. Finish placing your order, and then wait excitedly by your front door until it arrives! Of course, that last part is totally optional—but it’s definitely what we do while waiting for a package in the mail, especially when that package contains beautiful custom framed art and photos.
