    I posted a while back on how Instagram uses others to make their product even more valuable and addictive.  In that post, I covered a few services that help you take your cool digital shots and turn them into magnets, coasters, coffee cups, t-shirts, etc….

    I was a BIG fan of the magnets from Sticky Gram (BUY SOME…they’re great!), but recently decided to take the plunge on a bigger item.  I was delighted when I discovered the company CanvasPop who claims to have cracked the code on enlarging your Instagram pictures into a 12″ or 20″ square canvas print using their PicturePerfect technology.

    Sure enough, I just received my first print from them today and it was EVEN BETTER than I expected.  The colors were accurate, the quality of the canvas was great and the image quality was superb.  I’ll be ordering more from them and you should too….

    Don’t forget to go check out my thoughts on how Instagram’s open strategy is helping them win…even though it would appear that they’re giving up on a lot of revenue by allowing others to build on their platform for FREE.

    This is about to damage my bank account, me thinks. Thanks for sharing. Your pic looks amazing.
