I've been researching prices for printing 4x6 prints because we all know how much I love Project Life. I'm particularly excited for Project Life 2012! If you don't know why or what I love Project Life so much for ... click here to see my 2011 posts or click here to see Becky Higgins products and descriptions!
Warning: As you can already see ... this post will be full of links - this is not to be obnoxious, but hopefully to help.
Back to the photo printing ... you will know that this will be over 300 pictures by the end of the year and this can REALLY add up $$. If you are like me, you like to try and keep up (not always as easy as it sounds) so if I can print my pictures each week .. it helps keep me up to date. I also like to link up on the Project Life Tuesdays over at The Mom Creative, which means I like to have my pictures printed and in my album by Monday night. I usually have to print 5 to 10ish prints per week. I don't like paying a fortune **who does??** and that leads me to my research below .. hopefully this will help you? Maybe it will help you find something a little more convenient for your situation? Let me know! Leave a comment! What do you think? Note that I did not include the prepay options and or the bulk order options because that is not the way I run my PL :)
So away we go!!
Walmart has $.09 prints + shipping (charges to your home prices were not available online BUT if you have them shipped to your local store there is no charge for shipping!!) for delivery.
Snapfish has $.09 prints + shipping ($.50+) for delivery. I believe they also give you a bonus of free prints when you first sign up as well.
Rite Aid has $.09 prints + shipping (pricing unavailable on the site) for delivery to your home.
Walgreens has $.12 prints + shipping for delivery to your home.
Walmart, Sams Club & Cost Co. have $.13 prints for pick up at their stores.
Cost Co. also has a delivery option where the Ground shipping is free at the same $.13 rate.
Rite Aid has pick up, Target and Shutterfly have delivery for $.15 prints.
All of the following are $.19 prints:
CVS pick up, Rite Aid pick up, Walgreens pick up, Shutterfly to pick up at Target, Shutterfly to pick up at CVS, Shutterfly to pick up at Walgreens, Snapfish to pick up at Walgreens, Snapfish to pick up at Walmart, Snapfish to pick up at Meijer.
I did this research today, January 13th 2012 and I'm hoping I got it all as accurate as possible. Please feel free to email me or leave a comment if I made a mistake and I will correct it, as I am hoping to help others save a little money and/or find the convenience they need!
I have ordered things from Cost Co, Sams Club, Shutterfly and Walgreens and have been happy with their products ...and I will be trying the other (cheap) ones as we go from week to week to test time frames and quality of the others that I have listed today.
