Flickr Gets Print Friendly

Posted on October 27, 2005

Flickr has added a new service that lets photobloggers print the photos they have posted to Flickr. Flickr members can also allow others to obtain printed copies of their Flickr photos. The FlickrBlog has more.
Over the last year, we've been asked 15,381 times, "How about printing? When are we going to get printing!?" Today we are happy to answer: "Today!" For now it is U.S. only (we know! we're working hard on rolling it out everywhere!). You can order prints to be delivered by mail, or pick them up at your local Target store for one hour printing, even. In both cases, you get 10 free 4x6" prints to get started.
A Flickr printing faq says photos can be delivered by mail or picked up Target. Flickr's new fee-based service puts it in competition with other online photo sharing and printing services like Shutterfly, Snapfish, PhotoWorks, Webshots and Kodakgallery.com
