Shake it like a Polaroid picture Best online photo printing services in 2018 Make physical, lasting memories with these services for printing your photos!

A new, stylish twist from Snapfish is its maple wood mounting. This option starts at $69.99 for an 11-by-14 print. The option comes with mounting holes in the back, and the printing process allows the wood grain to show through your image for a rustic look.

If you want faster delivery, most services offer second-day and overnight shipping, but keep in mind that the products still have to be produced, so that doesn’t mean your photos will arrive the day after you order them, necessarily, even if you pay the $15 for overnight shipping. But it may mean your pictures arrive four days earlier. In practice, none of our test orders, for which we used the lowest-cost shipping options, took more than five days to arrive.

Bottom Line: CVS costs more than most other photo printing services we’ve tested, but it does offer convenient local pickup and surprisingly high photo quality.

But cardstock isn’t as suitable for wall hanging as other options such as styrene, standouts, gatorboard, and metal prints (more on this last type of print below). Gatorboard is stronger than standard foam plastic, since it’s impregnated with wood fibers, and it’s easy to hang on the wall. All these types of backing are available from online photo printing services.

If you’re going to be ordering photos online, it helps if the service has a friendly, navigable website. For example, most services, like Snapfish, let you simply check off all the sizes you want on a single page grid. Others make you select a size for printing before choosing the images you want, and then start over again if you want more sizes.

It turns out you can get hardcopy keepsakes of your visual memories without breaking the bank. Some services we tested, including Snapfish and York Photo Labs, produce 4-by-6-inch prints for just 9 cents apiece. Surprisingly, CVS Photo and Walgreens Photo are the most expensive services when it comes to 4-by-6s, charging 29 cents each, but you pay for the convenience of local pickup, and after 50 prints that price drops to 20 cents each. The next-priciest 4-by-6s among the services we tested was Nations Photo Labs, at 27 cents each, but the company provided the best image quality and paper. In the middle is Shutterfly’s 15-cent, 4-by-6 prints.

Shutterfly has free unlimited photo storage, and if you sign up when you visit its website, you’ll get 50 free 4×6 photos, a free magnet, and a free set of address labels. If you’re looking for wedding invites, birthday cards, Christmas cards, birth announcements, or really a photo card for any occasion, Shutterfly has you covered. There’s even a dedicated wedding section of the website, which is well-laid-out and fairly decently priced if you have upcoming nuptials.

CanvasPop isn’t alone in offering your photos in the form of large wall art. Nations Photo Lab’s canvas offerings start at $50 for an 8-by-10 stretched on a 3/4-inch frame, and Snapfish’s start at $39.99 for an unframed 8-by-8 canvas. AdoramaPix only charges $20.80 for the same 8-by-8 canvas, $24 for an 8-by-10, all the way up to $180.80 for a 24-by-36-inch canvas.

Shutterfly offers the largest selection of photo gifts, with flowerpots, blankets, cell phone cases, pillows, shower curtains, and even food bowls for your pets. York Photo Labs and CVS can sell you a necktie featuring your picture or multiple copies of one shot. I’m still waiting for one of the companies to offer photo-embellished rugs and lampshades. A couple of fun options that many do offer are puzzles and magnets.

Average price for a 4×6 print is 27 cents, but if you join up, you can get your first 25 4×6 prints for 8 cents apiece. You can even get luxury photo albums for $99 (like leatherbound and the works!). Nations Photo Lab support TIFF files, packages things well, and its print quality is some of the best around (if not the best*).

Bottom Line: Upgrading from McAfee Internet Security to McAfee Total Protection gets you a file encryption utility and extra licenses for the password manager. Unless you need those features, you may be better off with McAfee AntiVirus Plus.

Images from Nations Photo Lab, on the other hand, look natural, and show the truest black in a portrait with a black backdrop. Nations is also the only service that uses the truly professional-quality Kodak Endura paper.

Framing adds the ultimate wall-art touch to your large photo prints. It also adds cost: A framed and matted 24-by-36 print from Nations Photo Lab costs $188.95. The same from AdoramaPix costs from $129 to $220, depending on the frame chosen, while CanvasPop charges $257 without matting and $321 with matting.

You can start multiple projects on the Snapfish website, and get everything printed, from calendars to canvas prints to wall decor and tons of photo gifts, like mugs, notebooks, phone cases, jewelry, and way more. If you’re looking to give your photos away in as many creative ways as possible, then Snapfish is a great option for you.

Nations Photo Lab is PCMag’s top pick and it certainly deserves a place at the top of this list. It does it all: photo albums, photo books, wall decor, cards, and more.

Michael Muchmore The Best Online Photo Printing Services of 2018 Your pictures deserve a better showcase than your mobile screen. We’ve tested, rated, and reviewed the top web photo printing services to see which offer the lowest prices, the best user experience, and the highest-quality prints.

Online sharing is offered by some services, and Shutterfly is particularly strong in this capability, even letting you create online mini-websites for your photos. Snapfish and Walgreens Photo let you share online galleries that can be viewed as full-window slideshows. York Photos shared galleries are little more than batches of thumbnails, and Nations Photo Lab doesn’t get involved in online gallery sharing.

Why stop at ordinary photo prints, when you can have your pictures grace mugs, playing cards, and even pillows? The services here offer a remarkable assortment of objects that you can personalize. All offer greeting cards, calendars, and photo books (more on this below). Most offer phone cases, blankets, and coffee mugs.

And if you’re set on printing your own pictures, our list of the best photo printers is a good place to start.

Most of the services also offer a choice of hard backings for larger prints, and they’ll also frame your picture. Mounting options for Shutterfly include printing on cardstock, which starts at $3.99 for a 5-by-7, $7.99 for an 8-by-10, and $19.99 for an 11-by-14 print.

The photos we take now aren’t like the photos we took 20 years ago — they’re stored on our phones or computers and rarely looked at after we post them to social media. That beings said, there is a photo every now and then that deserves a special place on the mantle or side table. If you’re looking to get your photos printed for an album, collage, or whatever, then check out these services!

Bottom Line: Shutterfly offers a wealth of products upon which you can print your photos, and excels in packaging, but its site, image quality, and pricing are all mediocre.

Bottom Line: The AdoramaPix photo printing service boasts a superior web interface, the best packaging of any service we’ve tested, and very good print quality.

Even if you want enlargements at popular sizes, such as 5-by-7 and 8-by-10, you don’t have to spend a lot. Snapfish will send you 5-by-7s for just 69 cents each, and Nations Photo Labs offers excellent-quality 8-by-10s for a mere $1.90 each. And AdoramaPix, also known for print quality, has the very lowest 8-by-10 price, at just $1.59. Most of the competitors charge a still-reasonable $2.99-$3.99 for 8-by-10s. For wall-art size prints, of course, you’ll pay more, but it’s still not exorbitant: All of the services sell 16-by-20 prints for under $20, and most charge closer to $15.

Hey, if Ellen approves, then it’s gotta be good, right? Shutterfly provides high-quality prints at decent prices (15 cents per 4×6 photo), and it has a massive selection of printed gifts to choose from. My in-laws have used Shutterfly a few times for Christmas cards, and they’ve always turned out beautifully.

Here’s where Parabo Press isn’t exactly for everyone: 4×6 prints start at $8 apiece. Now, before you completely discount the site, photos are printed on extra thick matte paper, so they’re made to last and won’t collect fingerprints the way glossy prints will. Find your favorite images or photos and litter your walls with bespoke art! Framed prints start at $39.

Below, we give you some helpful ideas of what you should consider when creating physical keepsakes from your digital photos.

If you’re looking for a quick and convenient way to get your images printed, then Walgreens photo is one of your best bets for drugstore-level printing. Pricing starts at 29 cents apiece for 4×6 photos, and you can pick them up at the Walgreen’s of your choosing. Just go online, order through the order form, upload your images, and away you go.

If you’re comfortable with photo editing software, Adobe’s Lightroom and Apple’s Photos app both offer excellent photo book design tools and let you send your project to a professional printer. Lightroom uses the book-only Blurb service, and Apple uses an undisclosed but high-quality publisher.

Nations Photo Lab Snapfish Shutterfly Parabo Press AdoramPix Walgreens Photo Nations Photo Lab

Bottom Line: RitzPix delivers good photo prints, decently packaged, at average prices, but it doesn’t stand out from the crowd, and its web interface is mediocre.

Bottom Line: Snapfish offers good image quality in its very affordable prints, plus a slick, modern website, and a wide array of gift options for your photos.

York offers a very basic app that only lets you upload and order prints. Shutterfly adds the ability to order photo gifts, while Snapfish and Walgreens Photo’s apps can import photos from social networks, perform some editing, and share photos with friends. Nations is the only service in this group with no mobile app.

Snapfish and other services offer good photo-editing tools, letting you brighten or darken an underexposed or overexposed shot, for example. Many services automatically apply color correction; Nations Photo Labs offers high-level photo editing for a price premium, but we didn’t see a big difference in our test prints between premium color-corrections and the service’s standard prints.

If you decide you can wait a few days, or you want special options not available with local pickup, such as matte finish, mail order is provided by all the services tested. None of them took an inordinate amount of time, and shipping costs for our order of 22 photos of various sizes ranged from $2.34 for York Photo Labs to $7 for Nations Photo Lab—but the reason for the difference was stark. York packaged the photos in a thin, standard large envelope, while the carefully protected Nations order arrived in multiple layers of cardboard and clear plastic envelopes.

Almost all of the services included here can print books featuring your photos. For special events such as weddings, graduations, and vacations, nothing serves as a better reminder than a professionally printed photo book. The entry-level price for a book is Shutterfly’s $12.99 for a 5-by-7-inch softcover. Snapfish charges $19.99 for an 8-by-8 book, and AdoramaPix charges $24 for the same. Nations only does hardcover books, which start at $29 for 5-by-7-inch books.

Bottom Line: Walmart Photo offers a good web interface and low prices, but our testing shows that its print quality and packaging don’t match those of its best competitors.

Do you have a favorite online photo printing service that you like to use? Let us know in the comments below!

While Walgreens photo quality doesn’t quite measure up to other services on this list, it does offer one of the quickest turnaround times out of any service, and there’s likely a Walgreens near you no matter where you are. Pricing is a little expensive by comparison, but if you need your images or photos printed quickly, this is your best option. You can also perform some basic photo editing on the Walgreens site.

Sure, you can hold your phone up to someone’s face to show them snapshots of your baby niece, but you can’t really mount your phone on a wall to proudly display a favorite shot. Even though it seems like we’ve moved past physical media, printing your most prized photos still has value. Plenty of services are still available to produce high-quality memorabilia from your digital photos, whether that’s in the form of wallet-size snapshots or wall-size photo canvases.

For us, this is the most important factor when ordering prints: How accurately the photos reproduce the image you shot. Most of the prints I received, especially at the smaller 4-by-6-inch size, revealed acceptable image quality. When you get to enlargements, however, the differences became far more apparent. In particular, we found that the Walgreens Photo prints exhibited discoloration and lost detail, while the Nations Photo Lab prints showed the best image quality. You can see the difference in this 8-by-10 mountain scene, where the sky in the Walgreens Photo picture has a pinkish and purplish tinge that wasn’t in the original, and some cloud detail is lost to white.

Bottom Line: York Photo Labs offers prints and printed gifts at low prices, but you can find services with better print quality, interfaces, packaging, and online photo sharing.

Bottom Line: Turn your digital photos into living room art with this high quality, affordable service that prints your photos on canvas and can even frame them for you.

The most popular camera these days is one that’s always on you—your phone. And smartphones have come a long way in terms of image quality, with some capturing images with more than 20 megapixels of resolution. With most photos now being taken by phones, it only makes sense for a photo printing service to offer a mobile app to get the images straight from your phone to the print service.

If you want your pictures pronto, Walgreens Photo is the way to go. Look for upcoming reviews of Walmart Photo and CVS Photo, which also let you pick up prints locally. In our testing, Walgreens Photo didn’t provide the best enlargements in terms of image quality, but its smaller prints were perfectly acceptable.

Bottom Line: If you need your photos printed pronto, Walgreens offers a viable option, but it’s not the cheapest service and the print quality isn’t the best.

Snapfish is all about value. You can get 4×6 photos printed for 9 cents apiece. Unlike many other online services, you can pick your photos up locally. You can also share slideshows online, and order and view things via its mobile app.

Bottom Line: It’s not as well known as some competitors, but Nations Photo Lab delivered the best photo quality of all the services we’ve tested, and at reasonable prices.

One service included here, CanvasPop, doesn’t even print standard small photos, but instead offers only large, high-quality wall art (as well as magnets and pillows). CanvasPop’s offerings ranges from $30 for an unmounted 8-by-10 canvas to over $500 for a massive 76-by-38 inch canvas stretched on a 1.5-inch-deep frame. The company also offers retouching and restoration services.

Shutterfly has a service that curates your photos and designs a book for you, if you feel you’re not up to the task yourself. The service has one of the best design interfaces, with three options: Make My Book, Custom Path (which lets you personalize every page), and Simple Path, which instantly lays out your photos.

4×6 photos start at 27 apiece and its pricing for larger photos is quite a bit better than other services on this list ($11.99 for a 16×20 print). While AdoramaPix doesn’t offer the selection of gifts and decor that other services offer, it does provide you with beautiful images at great prices.

Like Nations Photo Lab, AdoramaPix’s claim to fame is its high image quality. You can upload photos from social media, perform some light photo editing on its website, upload TIFF files, share slideshows online, and take advantage of ordering on the go with its app.

Metal prints are an elegant, more permanent option offered by most of the services. With this process, your photo is printed directly onto a metallic surface for more vivid colors and contrast. Nations Photo Lab charges $12 for a 4-by-6, $15 for a 5-by-7, and $22 for an 8-by-10. Its largest metal option is a substantial 20 by 36 inches, which costs $195.
