New Los Angeles startup Instaprints lets Instagram users sell their stuff as canvas-and-acrylic prints, greetings cards and posters. Instaprints users can sign up for free and sell their wares at a base price -- $25 for an 8-by-8 canvas print, for instance -- and choose whatever markup they think their photos can fetch.
