Flickr had announced it is partnering with Snapfish by HP to provide Flickr members worldwide with a wider range of photo printing and gift creation options.
As Flickr's preferred printing partner, Snapfish will now enable Flickr members to quickly transfer, organize, and print photos, as well as create unique photo gifts using their existing Flickr photostream. This is the first time that most of Flickr's international members will have an option to print photos directly from their photostream -- an advantage of Snapfish's international presence in 22 countries worldwide.
Flickr has more than 40 million members worldwide. Flickr and Snapfish have developed an integrated experience that combines Snapfish's printing capabilities with Flickr's online photo organization features, such as Organizr, Sets, and Photo Page. For example, from the Flickr Organizr, members can easily select individual or batches of photos for editing or printing through Snapfish, where they can produce a variety of photo products using their personal Flickr images.
For Flickr’s New Zealand members, this announcement means that they can now use Snapfish to print their photos.
“We are thrilled to bring the Snapfish service to Flickr’s member community. Not only can they buy prints from as low as 15 cents per print, they can create a range of photo products using the Snapfish site, including beautiful canvas prints, coffee table-quality photo books, calendars, mugs and a range of Christmas gifts and decorations,” said Verity Batchelder, Country Manager, Snapfish Australia and New Zealand.
When Flickr users select the option to print photos on the Flickr site, they will be asked to choose their country. Once they choose New Zealand, they will be taken to the Snapfish New Zealand site, where orders will be fulfilled within New Zealand and customers can pay in local currency.
Purchasing through Snapfish will offer Flickr users more options for receiving their photos and photo gifts. Snapfish not only delivers anywhere in New Zealand, it also allows you to collect your purchases from one of its partner retailers. Customers can choose to collect from any Kmart outlet and hundreds of pharmacies countrywide.
In addition to enhanced printing capabilities and photo gifts, Flickr's collaboration with Snapfish will give members more flexibility in shipping photos. Not only can members print photos from anywhere in the world, but they can also ship photos to anywhere in the world. Additionally, members in the U.S. have the option to pick up their prints locally at any of Snapfish's retail partners' stores, including Walmart, Walgreens, Staples, Duane Reade, and others.
