Recently, Amazon began offering Prime members and Drive customers a low-cost photo printing service called Amazon Prints. An article from CNET described that the service will print photos uploaded to the company’s cloud drive platform either as individual snapshots or customized photo books.
Standard 4×6 prints start at nine cents, 5×7 cost 58 cents, 8×10 cost $1.79, and photo books start at twenty dollars for twenty pages. Photos will be delivered to a user’s home in an estimated 3-7 business days. In other words, it takes a bit longer than driving to WalMart, but costs a bit less. Likewise, it is cheaper than the similar service Shutterfly, which sells 4×6 prints for 15 cents.
If you’re interested in Amazon Prints, know that the service is expected to expand to custom stationery and calendars in the near future.
