Repostage was a project I created with Greg Christian enabling anyone to print and ship an Instagram by adding a hashtag.
I'm fascinated with the intersection of digital and physical worlds and this was a fun way to explore.
When users went to repostage.com they were prompted to log in with their Instagram account and then add their payment information and mailing address. They could then add the hashtag #repostage to any public photo from their feed. Adding this hashtag charged their card $0.99 and automatically had a postcard with their photo printed on it sent to them.
The service worked great and proved to be popular but we didn't have time to build it out as a full time project. The site no longer is live. :(
