There's lots of ways to get prints from Instagram photos, but a sure sign that the photo-sharing app has gone mainstream is that you can now get Instagram prints from Walgreens. Yes, Walgreens.
As Instagram users know, the app's Polaroid-like, square 4x4 photos don't lend themselves to home printing. And many of Instagram's photos, with fun filters, are just too cool to not print.
Now, a new app, Printicular, lets you order up Instagram 4x4 prints from Walgreens, and pick them up in an hour. It makes sense for Walgreens: Instagram now has more than 100 million users.
The free app is Android only right now, available from the Google Play Store. It's created by MEA Mobile, which told NBC News an iOS version should be ready very soon.
You can also use Printicular to order prints from your phone or Facebook account. (Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion earlier this year.)
There are other apps that can help you create Instagram prints. Among them: Prinstagram, CanvasPop and PostalPix.
