Android and iOS app offers convenient photo printing for Photobucket users
Huntington Beach, CA – MailPix, the photo-printing, canvas and gifting site, announced its latest app, Photobucket 1 Hour Photo, for iOS and Android. The app connects to more than 20,000 convenient retail locations for pick up including CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Walgreens, Duane Reade, Target and others.
Users can choose glossy photo-quality prints from 4×6, 5×7 and 8×10 sizes, with their choice of portrait and landscape orientation, plus full-bleed options. Users can also choose photo magnets, photo panels and greeting cards in the app. Orders available in about an hour.
“With just a few taps, you can create amazing gifts and prints using your favorite photos,” says Fred H. Lerner, CEO and founder, MailPix. “Choose your pictures right from your phone and print stunning photos to be picked up in about an hour.”
