--Leading U.S. Online Photo Service Opens UK Operations and Launches www.snapfish.co.uk--
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - November 22, 2004 - Snapfish, the leading online photo service, today announced the opening of UK based operations and the launch of Snapfish UK (www.snapfish.co.uk). Offering United Kingdom customers the same unsurpassed digital photo services that over 10 million Americans already enjoy, Snapfish UK opens with the market's best prices, 4"x6" prints just 15p everyday and as low as 12p with a pre-paid plan.
Snapfish already powers the online photo service for Truprint, the leading mail-order film brand in the UK. According to data from independent monitoring group Hitwise, Truprint.co.uk quickly became a top-3 online service within just weeks of its launch. With a wealth of experience in the UK and understanding of the marketplace, Snapfish now offers local users the quality, pricing and breadth of services that has become the gold standard in the industry.
"We have always considered ourselves a worldwide service, with regular customers printing, sharing and storing photos through www.snapfish.com from almost every country around the globe," said Raj Kapoor President and Co-Founder of Snapfish. "However, with the launch of Snapfish UK we can now provide more personalized and timely service to British and other European customers. With record numbers of images being uploaded this season we see our accelerating growth punctuated by the banner launch of Snapfish UK and surpassing a 10 million registered customer milestone."
Snapfish UK Products and Services Include:
"We are excited to begin providing British consumers the highest quality, lowest cost online photo services. Snapfish UK is a decidedly UK based operation that is dedicated to fulfilling the needs of local consumers, not simply syndicating an American idea," said Helen Vaid, Managing Director, Snapfish UK.
