postalpix Howdy IGers! Two quick announcements:

1. We launched 8x8 prints today! Hi-res Instagram pics look uh-mazing. Just DL the latest version of PostalPix (2.0) from the App Store to check 'em out ($3.49 ea).

2. Just received another limited supply of these gorgeous handmade 4x4 frames. They’re made in Utah with knotty alder wood from re-purposed cabinets and doors. They come in black and white, and the edges are slightly sanded to give a distressed, but elegant look (listed in @ $9.49 ea).

Important note on holiday shipping:

Prints from our app – If you order today, there’s a very good chance you’ll receive orders before Christmas. We can’t GUARANTEE it though because of the USPS slow down. The closer you are to California, the faster your prints will arrive.

Frames ( – If you order before 6pm PST today, we can guarantee you’ll receive them by Christmas. If ordered after today, there’s still a good chance but can't promise anything :)

Happy holidays!

  • Done.. 4y
  •   jecka_lee I have a couple questions: I just ordered some prints and I didn't see the 4x4 frames. Do you also have frames for the 8x8 pics? Also, I have so many pics that I want to print but when ordering them, I get a Simmental about the resolution or something. I use the same camera for all my shots. Some will print, some won't. Do you know how I can get around this? Thanks! 4y
  •   postalpix @jecka_lee hi Jess! We sell both 4x4 and 8x8 frames at Regarding the resolution issue, are you using an external camera or your iPhone? Also, we'd highly recommend downloading our new update that was released today. If you select a low res photo, it will direct you to a really helpful page about how you can avoid it in the future. 4y
  •   jecka_lee You're awesome! I just ordered some 8x8s and I love your products! I'm using an external cam and I just now did the update, thanks for the helpful info!! I LOVE you guys! 4y
  •   postalpix @jecka_lee glad we could help! We'd love to hear what you think of the 8x8 frames once they arrive. Feel free to drop us a line if you need anything else ;) 4y
  •   jecka_lee I sure will! Thanks again! 4y
  •   jecka_lee Sorry to keep bugging you, but I entered the URL above for the marketplace and couldn't find it. These frames are not on the app, correct? 4y
  •   postalpix @jecka_lee oops, sorry about that! Try this address instead: 4y

At top right, @tat2wifey makes photo ornaments by inserting her IG prints inside clear ornament balls. At bottom right, @zombymama does the same but cuts her prints to fill out the whole ornament. Brilliant. Got a cool dispaly with your PostalPix prints? Let us know with a #postalpix tag! 4y

Buttom left - @judygreen creates a unique wall display using a furring strip from Lowe's and mini clothespins. Bottom right - @neonkranz crafted a coat rack + picture frame combo with a reclaimed craftsman window and antique glass knobs from an old home. Holy awesomeness! How do you display your prints?

postalpix "OMG" is about all we were saying yesterday when we got our @photojojo iPhone macro lens in the mail. Here's a shot of one of our 4x4 aluminum prints through the lens. How amazing is that?! Definitely recommend picking one up. It'll take your iPhoneography skills to the next level! 4y
  •   koduckgirl Best sales pitch EVAH! 4y
  •   crystal_rain How much is a 5x5 aluminum & do y'all do like, 8x8 or 10x10 prints? Really need the bigger squared pics if y'all know where I can get some that'd be nice 4y
  •   postalpix @rockinhair7 tried to order the 4x4 aluminums? If so, we do require the image to be above 600x600 pixels to avoid pixilation. This is slightly smaller in size than the what the old iG saved pics at, 612x612. 4y
  •   postalpix @londonbritches you should! They're pretty awesome. Look great as sets of 3-4 too. 4y
  •   postalpix @nycflychick it's actually a tiny lens that attaches to your iPhone magnetically. Their website is and they're @photojojo here on IG. It'll be great on your iPhone 4! 4y
  •   postalpix @crystal_rain the only square aluminum size we have through the app is 4x4, but we can do custom orders for just about any size! Just drop an email with what you're looking for and he'll get back to you asap. 4y
  •   rockinhair7 Thank you very much will order again. Great product by the way!! 4y
  •   crystal_rain Thanks! I really appreciate it 4y

postalpix Love overload today! Here's a few of our favorite recent #postalpix sightings (which all happen to feature a "love" theme). At left, @__christina clips her square prints to a string of fabric hearts. At top right, @sheepishknitcrochet sets up an awesome heart collage (is this on the wall or set on a table?) At lower right, @kdnlove uses a simple grid display at home. How do you display yours? Snap a pic and let us know with a #postalpix tag! . 4y

postalpix Here’s a few neat displays we’ve seen recently using #postalpix. At top left, @pato_con_botas clips his prints on a metal heart hung on the wall. Top right, @dnavratil uses a similar method, but opts for a nice bird cage design instead. On the bottom, @jbellec14 creates an awesome wall collage with her 4x4 prints. How and where do you display your prints? Let us know by snapping a picture of your set up and tagging it with #postalpix! . 4y

postalpix Looking for inspiration for what to do with your #postalpix? Here’s a few homemade projects we’ve seen recently using the 4x4 and 5x5 prints. Top left: @mel0770 used spray adhesive, matt board, and poster putty to mount prints on her wall. Top right: @lovegreendog displayed one of her prints inside a beautiful wooden frame made by her very own husband! Bottom left: @texasrose spray painted wooden blocks, then mounted and coated the prints on top. Bottom right: A simple, but awesome, photo line by @lifeofjenn. How do you display your prints?

postalpix PostalPix v1.5 is live! Along with other improvements, our new update has two special treats for the IG community:

5x5 inch square prints & 4x4 inch square aluminum prints.

The 5x5 prints are 89¢ each and use the same high quality paper and printing process as our 4x4 prints. They actually appear quite a bit larger than the 4x4s.

The 4x4 aluminum prints are seriously awesome. We infuse your photo on 1mm thick high-grade aluminum with a glossy, scratch resistant surface. They come with thick mounting tape for your wall and magnets for the fridge, and are $7.99 each.

You can check out our blog post at for some info about us and more details on the release. We had to make a change to the 4x4 square pricing structure that increased prices by 8¢ for high quantity orders, which is explained there.

As shown in the pic above, we’re offering a 25% discount on aluminum products until 11:59pm PST tomorrow so you can try them out! Just tap the link in our IG profile to update.

What do you think of the new design and products? Praise or criticism, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

postalpix Check out these neat DIY projects using #postalpix 4x4 prints. Top left is a set of homemade coasters by @janlovespix. Check out her original post for instructions on how to make them yourself! At top right, @ellespeak glued square cork pieces to the back of her prints to give them a raised effect on the wall. On the bottom, @xorosa used the corner of a room to make an awesome looking collage. If you have any great project ideas or displays of your PostalPix prints, we’d love to see them! Just tag the post with #postalpix to let us know. 5y

postalpix We've been seeing some really cool #postalpix wall art deco around the IG community. Here's a few examples from @londonbritches (top), @tina (bottom left), and @hallieee (bottom right). Can't get enough of these! Do you have a killer PostalPix mural, frame or other display? Let us know with a #postalpix tag :) 5y
  •   tabbyshabby @ppix hmmm... Will I lose already saved apps, music and pictures if I do that? 5y
  •   postalpix @tabbyshabby nope, iTunes will back up everything for you and restore it once the new software is installed. Just to be cautious, I'd still recommend doing a full sync before updating. 5y
  •   postalpix @af_rbroome sorry about that. It's a bug that occurs on Verizon iPhones (usually our limit is 40). We'll be fixing this in our next update due out soon. 5y
  •   postalpix @af_rbroome oh got it. That limit is actually supposed to be set to 20 on iPod touches because they have less memory than iPhones, therefor are more prone to crashing when a lot of images are in the cart. But we're working on increasing that limit in our next update too! 5y
  •   nataliepigliacampo Love the heart mural! Will be doing this in my home. 5y
  •   kurapakphotography Check this out bro @farisan . & check out their whole post if u may! 4y
  •   farisan @kurapak gambar ngalin saja kah 4y
  •   mopheadqueen I had started to make a heart mural too (: great pics. 4y
