Over the last year, we’ve been asked 15,381 times, "How about printing? When are we going to get printing!?" Today we are happy to answer: "Today!" For now it is U.S. only (we know! we’re working hard on rolling it out everywhere!). You can order prints to be delivered by mail, or pick them up at your local Target store for one hour printing, even. In both cases, you get 10 free 4×6" prints to get started.
Whether you live in the U.S. or not, you should set your printing preference now —you might have friends and family in the U.S. who you want to print your photos— and wherever you live, we can let you know when printing is available for you.
At the same time, we’re rolling out a pilot program allowing other businesses access to our commercial APIs – the QOOP service (previously mentioned here) for photo books and posters (and more products coming soon), backups of your Flickr photos on DVDs from Englaze, printing real U.S. stamps from Zazzle (start on one of your photos to try it), and more to be announced shortly. We’re still getting started on this, but the goal is to open it up completely and give you the biggest variety of choices when it comes to doing things with your photos.
