I just ordered from postal pix yesterday for the first time. I can update when I get my order in. They weren't terribly expensive and their shipping was very reasonable.

Awesome glad to hear that. I was going back and forth between the Selphy and the Charm.

I liked the Selphy because it can print from your iPhone and iPad wirelessly. I liked the Charm because it prints matte pictures. I ended up going with the Selphy since Amazon had it for $69.99 on Black Friday. So now I'm patiently waiting for it. If Epson ever makes a Charm that prints wirelessly I'll get one as I prefer matte pictures.

I print instagrams on my Charm all the time. I print on a Mac from iPhoto. What I do is resize my photos down to 3.8x3.8. That way it doesn't cut any of the border off. You just have to play around with your computer settings until you get it right!

I love ordering from Postal Pix too. I use them when I have big orders.

Ok I think I may be sold on buying the Selphy. Mostly for Instagram printing. I've been sending them to Kanvas to print for .25 each. Not too bad, but hate having to wait to get them in the mail. For those that have the Selphy, how many prints do you usually get from one ink cartridge?

Not to hijack, but can someone tell me how they are printing instagram pics to the selphy? I bought the CP900 and tried to print a 4x4 photo (instagram) from my iphone and the printer just stretched it to a 4x6. Do you have to buy the special paper in order to do that? And where can you get the paper (if you have a model number or title that would be great)? I can't find it!

I'd like to know the answer to that too peanutlover. That's 90% of the reason I just bought it.

I don't have the Selphy, but I do have an HP photo printer. I also do not have an iphone so never had to worry about printing pics. BUT I do like that look so I crop pics to 4X4 in PSE and then print to my HP printer. There is a box that is around when I print that asks "fit to page" THAT causes it to stretch it out. I unclick it and get a 4X4 print. Hope that helps with the selphy.

@peanutlover @PolarGreen12-- I just printed my first instagram from my iphone to my selphy last night! The answer is to choose "bordered". Simply click "bordered" on your phone and then print. If you don't, it automatically goes borderless and that is why it stretches

Hope that helps!

I print my 4x4 Instagrams with my Picturemate Charm all of the time. I just choose a bordered print and they come out perfectly.
