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 matte or glossy finish, and whether you want to pick them up at a store near you or have them mailed directly to your doorstep. It’s never been easier to get the prints you want, your way.

If you’re printing photos from your cell phone you may want to look into ordering the True Digital 4×5.3 size. This format allows you to match the dimensions of the photo produced by your digital camera or cell 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 standard prints in sizes 4×6, 5×7, and 8×10.

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!
