We all love sharing our images on Instagram. Being able to catch all those wonderful moments during the day using our phones means we are taking more and more photos than ever before. Social media allows us to share all these pictures online with thousands of people at the click of a button. But it's a shame not to liberate these virtual images to share in a physical way!
Instajunction is an online shop that allows users to print their Instgaram images onto some really fun and exciting items that they can get to show off in real life! Instajunction can put your favourite snaps onto items such as fridge magnets, coasters, Polaroid style cards, calendars, stickers, posters, vinyls, wrapping paper or even onto a charm bracelet! Pricing is very reasonable starting at just £3.99.
I was given the opportunity to try out the Instagram experience and create some items using my own Instagram images. I made a pair of double sided, high gloss plastic keyrings (£9.99 for two), a set of 12 flexible, fridge magnets (£9.99 for a set) and a 15cm square vinyl decal (£3.99).
Making the products is so easy. The website is clean, easy to navigate and user friendly. You simply choose the product that you wish to make, connect to your Instagram account, pick your images and place your order. The turnaround is very quick and your printed products arrive to your door within a few working days via Royal Mail (for UK orders) . The items are sealed in plastic bags to protect them in transit.
The keyrings are great as they have a different photo printed on each side so you get to show off two images per keyring instead of one. The glossy plastic is thick and sturdy and the metal ring is securely attached. they would make brilliant stocking fillers for any key wielding older kids or grandparents. Having two means you can get to give one away and keep one for yourself. I love the idea of carrying around pictures of my kids in my pocket all day!
The fridge magnets come as a sheet of twelve framed images. They can be separated up or stuck up as a full set. It's a great way to display your snaps and they brighten up the freezer door! They are flexible but not flimsy, so will be durable and long lasting additions to the fridge-freezer. Another lovely present idea for grandpa and grandma to enjoy, letting them look at their grandchildren every time they get out a pint of milk!
The vinyl decals stick to any flat surface and would go together to make a really creative piece of wall art, brightening up any plain space. They are a nice way to showcase favourite snaps in a very modern and funky way. Great for teenagers to hang favourite photos up in their bedrooms.
All in all, I was impressed with the ease of ordering, the service and the products themselves. The prices are reasonable and the postage and packing is just a £2.95 flat rate for the UK. Instajunction is definitely a great one stop shop for buying creative, bespoke gifts for loved ones for any occasion.
