Use These Meme Template Accounts To Create Your Own Dank Memes

Angel Olson once sang “they made a meme out of my legacy darling,” but I have never found a meme that fully encompassed my lasting effect on the world. Luckily, I can now (easily) make my own bespoke memes, with a little help from template accounts on Instagram.

Obviously, making memes has always been something I had the option of doing, but I am very lazy, unwilling to download an additional app, and resistant to doing any sort of meme-related image altering on a computer with real photo-editing software. But now, thanks to a few lovely template accounts, I can make my own very specific-to-me memes in under five minutes, without leaving the Instagram app.

Meme template accounts are pretty easy to find. Simply search “meme templates” in the Instagram app, and you find quite a few options. (I suggest you follow at least two for variety.) So far, @meme_template_ and @templatesformemers have provided more than enough templates to satisfy my need to meme, and (though they are smaller in scope) @meme.templates.jpg and @template.for.quality.memes have some good stuff too.

Once I find a template I like, I screenshot the template, crop it, then open it in my Instagram story, where I can add text or emoji.

Once I have added my desired verbiage, I post the meme to my story, or save it by pressing the save icon (it looks like an arrow pointing down into a line) and close my story by pressing on the “x” in the upper left corner. I then crop the meme on my phone, and — depending on how inside the joke is — share it with my loved ones, the world, or our managing editor, Virginia, who is something of a meme lord herself.
