Square Snaps: Instagram Polaroids

I know I'm not alone when I say that Instagram is one of the best ways of keeping track of and sharing your memories and photos. All of our favourite moments and pictures are all kept in one place on the internet and whether it's photos of your travels, photos from nights out or pieces of your photography, you can guarantee that your Instagram feed is full of your favourites. However, I've mentioned before in my keeping track of travel memories post that I like to have my photos in print. There's just something really nice about having the photo there in physical form and you never know when something might go wrong with the storage of photos on social media. That's where Square Snaps comes in, a website I can't believe I hadn't come across until a couple of weeks ago.

Square Snaps is a website offering high quality photo prints in different, square styles including Polaroid style, as you can see here. The photos are of fantastic quality and I'm honestly gutted I didn't know about the website sooner - it would have saved me a lot of time that I wasted in front of those nightmare "Print Your Own Photo" machines at Asda! Not only can you choose the size of your printed photos but you can also choose the colours of the Polaroid style border and instead of going for the usual white border that we all associate with Polaroid snaps, I went for the black. It looks super sleek, stylish and simple and is perfect for the black obsessives amongst us and let's be honest, in the blogosphere that's just about everyone! These are the perfect size and colour for sticking in my travel memories book and I'm definitely going to get my hands on another scrapbook to stick the rest of the snaps in. The black snaps are perfect for printing off your LFW photos and starting off your own scrapbook! 

My favourite thing about using Square Snaps was that you can upload your photos direct from your Instagram account. Of course, you can still upload from your desktop and print any photos you want but as I mentioned above I tend to upload all of my best and favourite photos to Instagram, meaning I simply logged in to my account, selected the photos I wanted to print and it's as easy as that. Even though all of my photos were uploading direct from Instagram, I cannot fault the quality of the images. Usually when I print them from the self-service machines at the supermarkets, the images lose their quality and appear stretched and pixelated but the Square Snaps pics couldn't be further away from this (as you can see from the photos!)

I would definitely recommend Square Snaps - I can't fault the quality of the images, the quick service or the ease of using the website. When I come back from New York I'm definitely going to print some more of my photos off but I might give the Super Snaps style a go next time! 

See what types of online photo printing Square Snaps has and choose your favourite. They're amazingly priced and 30 of these black Polaroid style snaps only cost £10, much cheaper than the usual methods of printing photos considering they're much better quality too! 

Use the code SALTCHIC15 for an extra 15% off your order too! (only valid for two weeks so get printing now!)
