Print photos. Choose from many photo print size options with Snapfish.

Perhaps you’ve finally perfected your pose or captured a beloved moment in time. What’s the best way to get that amazing image off your camera roll and printed for everyone to enjoy?

With so many options, it’s hard to choose which type of print would be best for your photo and budget. Not to worry, as we’ve created this handy guide to help you decide.

Standard Prints

String photo prints together to an attractive photo wall display

These are our most popular print style, probably because they’re super shareable! Printed with archival-quality inks on professional-grade photo paper, our standard prints are sure to be enjoyed for years to come. Just pick your desired size, a matt or gloss finish and have them delivered directly to your doorstep. It’s never been easier to get the prints you want, your way.

If you’re printing photos from your mobile phone, you may want to look into ordering the True Digital 5.3×4” (10×13 cm) size. This format allows you to match the dimensions of the photo produced by your digital camera or phone to the dimensions of the print. In other words, your photo will be minimally cropped, ensuring it matches the original style and feel of your photo. You can also order regular prints in sizes 6×4″ (10×15 cm) and 7×5″ (18×13 cm).

So, what should you do once you get your photos home? You can do so much with prints besides displaying and sharing them. Turn them into a fun DIY project like custom postcards, photo mosaics, gift tags, and more!

Did you know, if you download the Snapfish App you can enjoy 50 free 6×4” (10x15cm) prints every month for the next year? The free Snapfish App is available for both iOS and Android users!
