For a long time, members of our fantastic photo community have only been able to buy prints of their own photos. Today, we’re rolling out a new feature on Flickr that lets anyone—Flickr members and visitors alike—order professional quality prints from a select group of photographers who’ve made their work available for sale.
How does it work?
Whether you’re looking for a print to decorate your living space or searching for a piece to give to someone special, you can now shop prints and wall art with just a few clicks. Start by clicking “Prints” in the upper nav, then select our brand new storefront: “The Print Shop”. When searching, photos that are available for print will also appear in the first row of your search results.
Once you’ve located the photo you want to print, click the shopping cart icon in the right-hand corner below the image, select the product style, size, etc., and proceed to check out.
Flickr Prints is backed by years of photography sales success on our sister site, SmugMug. Your prints will come from Bay Photo, a professional lab located in Santa Cruz, California, and they ship all over the world! We offer paper prints, wall art, and desk art of photos in a wide range of sizes and finishes.
Who are the approved sellers?
This feature is part of a pilot program, so you can expect to hear about more improvements, tweaks, and featured photographers in the future. For launch, these are the talented photographers whose work you can buy for your home, office, or wherever you could use some inspiring photography:
