Great new for Instagramers! A new L.A. based website named Instaprints lets Instagram users sell their photographs as canvas or acrylic prints, greetings cards and posters as noted by an L.A. Times report. Instaprints founder Sean Broihier also founded the online art marketplace Fine Art America, an online marketplace for buying and selling fine art originals and prints, which currently has 115,000 members. Users can sign up at Instaprints for free and sell their photos at a base price of approximately $25 for an 8 x 8 canvas and choose whatever markup they think their photos can fetch.
According to the source:
Broihier said he was impressed by the volume and quality of content uploaded by many Instagram users, as well as the viral nature of the photos, which users post in rapid-fire fashion on social networks and social media outlets.
“I don’t think it’s a huge leap to say, ‘Hey, let’s make these photos real art you can hang up on your wall,'” Broihier said.
Instaprints is hardly the first company to try to piggyback on Instagram’s success. Sites such as CanvasPop and Kanvess let users print out their own photos. But Instaprints is the first way for pros and amateurs to sell to others, Broihier said.
Instaprints makes sure the quality images get top billing which is why the top rows of any given Instaprints page features the most artsy, well-done photos. You can start selling your favorite Instagram shots right now by clicking here.
