Instaprints.com Expands Into Metal Prints
Instaprints.com, the online service which allows Instagram users to buy and sell their photos, has expanded its service to metal prints, the company said this morning. The company, which is headed by Sean Broihier, said the new feature allows users to get their photos printed directly onto a thin sheet of aluminum. Metal prints are a popular photo printing method, where photos are printed onto metal sheets and can be directly hung on a wall, without need for any framing or matting. Instaprints.com, which is based in Los Angeles, operates a site where fans of the popular Instagram photo sharing app and community can print out their photos both in the new metal print format as well as more traditional, canvas prints, and also allows those same Instagram users to sell their prints to others. Broihier is a serial entrepreneur, who also founded Fine Art America, a site which allows artists to buy and sell artwork.
