Can I print my Instagram photos as Classic Prints?
Yep! Instagram photos work great for the square sizes up to 5x5” but their resolution tends to be too low for the 8x8” and 11x11” square prints, so steer away from larger print sizes.
Makes sense! How large do my photos need to be to print?
Square Classic Prints
- 2x2" (5.08x5.08 cm): 612x612 pixels

- 11x11" (27.94x27.94 cm): 1100x1100 pixels

How do I know if my photo will print well?
Our uploader tool won’t let you upload photos that are too small for a particular print size, but it is unable to tell if a photo is blurry, pixelated, or taken in low light. These are all factors that can cause a correctly sized photo to not print as well. A good way to tell if your photo will print clearly on a larger scale is to check the resolution. We print at 300 dpi and photos at or near this resolution will print best.
If you are still nervous, you can perform what we call the "zoom test" on your image prior to upload. Open up your photo on your computer's photo viewer, and zoom in a little bit. If you are seeing pixelation when you zoom, this will also show up in print.
As a general rule, we recommend printing photos that are taken in natural light. Indoor photos at low light can look fuzzy. Check out our photo editing guide that will help you choose and edit your photos for the best possible prints.
A Note on Cropping for Full Bleed Prints:
Due to the nature of full bleed printing and trimming, we recommend keeping all important subjects at least 0.25” from the edge of your print shown on the cropping menu or print preview. Full bleed prints can be cropped up to an additional 0.25” from this preview so we recommend keeping all vital limbs, heads, and text away from these crop lines.
No Can Do:
We do not offer glossy prints at this time. If you prefer a luster finish for the larger print sizes, we recommend checking out our Large Format Prints.
