In some ways Instacanvas is a simple business, one similar to a couple of other "turn your Instagrams into printouts" enterprises. It provides a simple, secure way for fans of an image to acquire a print of it on stretched canvas, just like a genuine artwork, and have it delivered ready to hang on their wall. The company opens to the general public today.

So Instaprint meets canvas. Well it's not crazy that this happened but let's understand that Instagram printed onto a large canvas wouldn't be as nice as something from the 500px market. Further the fact that the paintings are printed without any money to the users wo actually produce the art seems a bit of a flaw in the system of printing instagrams.
