Flickr Announces New Professional Print Service Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

28 August 2019

On a blog post today, Flickr product manager Matthew Roth announced a new professional printing service. Paper, metal and canvas prints are currently available to print your images.

Roth explains how it works:

Log in to your Flickr account and select the brand new Prints menu item in the upper navigation. You'll be able to select the photo you want to print, choose the product style, size and finish and add to cart. When you're done making your selection, go to your cart and check out.

Or, while you're browsing through your Photostream, choose a photo, click the new shopping cart icon and select the product (we love the metal prints) to add it to your cart. Simply repeat this step to add more photos and items to your cart. When you're done shopping, head back to your cart (accessible through the Prints menu item in the upper navigation) and check out.

Only the photographer of the image can order a print. Visitors to your photostream won't see the Print option.

Where your files are printed are determined by Flickr. Photo books are handled with Blurb and Chatbooks while prints are done by Bay Photo, White House Custom Colour, or Loxley Colour.

"We've been lucky enough to lean on our friends at SmugMug to develop this new feature," Roth explained. SmugMug acquired Flickr last year.

Flickr Announces New Professional Quality Photo Prints Feature

Flickr has announced a new feature to its service: professional-quality printing with Flickr Prints.

Flickr users can now order prints of the images that mean the most to them from renowned photography labs around the globe.

Not only does Flickr Prints ensure professional quality prints from the best photo labs around the world, it eliminates the need to drop by your local pharmacy or move photo files between different services to print.

Need a statement piece for your new apartment or paper prints for family and friends? Users can shop for print products, select the style, size and finish and check out directly from their accounts in just a few short clicks. If you're looking to order prints of multiple photos, you can do so directly through your Photostream.

The types of prints Flickr users can order include:

  • Metal Prints: Delivering unparalleled color and vibrance to produce a depth and clarity unlike any other photographic wall art
  • Paper Prints: The time-honored way to show off and share your favorite photos. The choice of size and paper finish is yours!
  • Canvas Prints: For an added touch of class, you can also order canvas prints for your home or office.

For more information see the blog post announcing the new service.
