Leila’s Instagram Poster (and a download for you!)

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 9 - 2013

I decided to put my (many) Instagram photos of Leila to good use and create a framed poster for her bedroom.

Unfortunately, most of the Instagram printing services based in the UK are rather expensive and/or prohibitive when it comes to creating customised prints, some would only allow me to print x-amount of my most recent photos and not pick and choose just the ones that contained Leila!  I also knew that I wanted a square poster to fit an inexpensive IKEA RIBBA frame and custom-sized printing usually pushed the price way up!

So, I went for it and made my own template, here’s the finished result.

Instagram Poster2

Instagram-Poster3

I’ve created a Photoshop template for anyone wanting to do something similar which can be downloaded here (let me know if the downloads stop working as I’m using a free service/may need to sell my soul for more bandwidth).

It will allow you to create a 50cm x 50cm poster (when having it printed, ensure that you select “full bleed”) containing a total of 81 instagram photos.  The PSD consists of a simple two-layer template, all photos should be resized (to roughly 540px) and placed on the bottom layer, you can then arrange/drag the images however you wish within the template.  Before saving, ensure that you’ve converted it to a CMYK file (Image>Mode>CMYK Color) for printing.

I had this printed at my local printers who I’ve used a few times, they charged me only £8 to have it printed onto 120gsm paper (not fly poster paper) and I collected it two days after uploading my image to them.  The total cost, including the frame, came to £17 – I’m really pleased with my bargain!

Would you consider making a poster of your favourite Instagram photos?

    Love it! Looks fab and what a bargain… wonder if I should get all my instagrams of food printed out to shame myself to stop snacking?! Also, love the cute bunny on the radiator!

  2. Looks brilliant! And Leila’s room looks lovely too. I can’t see the one of her in the skeleton onsie though! I’m not a stalker, but that photo was hard to forget, she looked ecstatic!

    Hi!
    This is amazing and has given me the perfect gift idea for my sister in laws 30th! 🙂 However, I am from the dark ages and a true technophobe, I downloaded it and it wouldnt open, because I dont have photoshop…Do I have to pay for photoshop?
    Thanks! Sorry I’m so dumb with computers!

    This is a great idea and it looks beautiful! I love how you get to display so many pictures, but it’s all in one frame and it’s so clean and streamlined. Very well done! 🙂

    Hi, this is a great idea, I have hundreds of instagram photos of my little boy that I keep meaning to do something with and this is perfect. I only have Photoshop Elements do you know with this template work on it??

  12. ModestyBrown says:

    Oh gosh, that is such a lovely idea. I really wish I had an Instagram account now! We have a poster of mixed photos in a frame of each of the children and they do love to look at them and remember or ask about them. Thanks for sharing Charlotte x

  14. Lauren says:

    This is such a gorgeous frame filled with lovely pics. I would love to do the same but can’t get it working – will persevere though as I splashed out on the frame already in preparation!
