If your Flickr photos are begging to be printed big and stuck on the wall, or you think one of your photographic masterpieces is worthy of display in a friend’s home and would therefore make a perfect gift, you may want to to check out the company’s new printing service.
Flickr Wall Art offers users of the photo-sharing site a simple and fast way – “in as little as two clicks,” apparently – to order premium photo mounts and gallery canvas wraps.
Premium photo mounts, which start at $59, are printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper with a lustre finish and mounted on a 1-inch board, while the gallery canvas wraps, which begin at $49, comprise a wood frame with 1.25-inch stretcher bars.
Sizes run from 8×10 to 20×30 inches, with standard and express shipping available for US addresses.
While Flickr certainly isn’t claiming its new service to be the cheapest out there, it’s hoping that its ease of use and selection of quality materials will be enough to tempt some of its members to give it a whirl, taking their best images from the computer screen into the real world. If it proves a hit, there’s a chance it could roll out the service more widely, enabling its members to make sales directly through Flickr to anyone with a bit of spare cash and some empty wall space.
