SNAPFISH - REVIEWER'S COMMENTS

Snapfish is one of the best online photo service out there, with more than 90 million members and 2 billion unique photos stored online. Whether you are professional or amateur photographer, you will find the service to be very good for its great site functionality, useful sharing features, unlimited online storage space and wide assortment of photo gifts and stationery. So lets dig a little deeper and see find what they are offering.






Ease of Use - Ordering Process:
Ordering prints on Snapfish is hassle-free. Even first time users will find it pretty simple to use. Uploading your photos is a breeze. Even on the rare case you get stuck, the Snapfish help section is very informative and resourceful with detailed step by step instructions. If you have trouble using the online upload feature, they have a software tool called Picture Mover. It helps you get your local photos from your computer or media device and on to your Snapfish account. Alternately, you can upload photos from other online sources like Facebook and Flickr. If you want to get more creative, check out Snapfish's Tips & Ideas which we found to be very interesting. The customer services section for this photo printing service does not disappoint. Snapfish provides many ways for you to reach them. You can contact customer support via telephone or support email. While some people do have a few complaints regarding the Snapfish support, especially during peak season, we found them to be helpful and courteous. Also, the live chat option is very helpful in most sticky situations.


Quality of Prints:
To get more consistent results, we ordered selected prints having different color characteristics and details. On arrival the photos came out very "original" .They had a sense a liveliness to them and most of the details were preserved. We noticed some dark tones were out of place in 2-3 prints but that's all we could find. Even some unwanted colors which were purposefully kept in the digital, were magically removed and the end result was satisfactory. In general, the reproduction of colors in landscape photos was flawless to say the least.


Pricing:
This is an area where Snapfish knocks out competition with the cheapest prints. Snapfish has the lowest per print cost of$ 0.08 and offers the most bang for your buck. They don't charge for the first 20 uploaded pictures. Prints are available in glossy or matte finish with is no additional charge for either finish. Snapfish also has a pre-paid pricing, so you can buy your prints ahead of time and use them whenever you want without an expiry. This might be very helpful if you are a high volume user. Also there are many ongoing savings offers at Snapfish that help you save even more.


Shipping Costs:
You can have your prints shipped to your door, or choose to pick it up at a nearby store. Both have different pricing and prices can be a bit confusing if you choose to have your orders picked-up from a store. To calculate the shipping cost for your print order, Snapfish adds tiered prices to your base price for each set of ten prints. Tiered prices apply to all delivery methods. Make sure you go over their fine prints before ordering so that you don't end up uninformed. The prints themselves were sent in a standard paper photo folder with a piece of cardboard reinforcement and shipped in a lightweight paper envelope. We think the packaging could have been more rigid. Your order might have different shipping charges if it contains two or more items that require different processing as different photo products may be shipped from different places and at different times.


Turn Around Time:
We received our order within the stipulated time of 2 days and in a good condition. While shipping schedules may go for a toss during rush time, we did not face any such inconvenience.


Other Services:
Snapfish has a good number of personalized photo products such as prints, photo books, cards and mugs. You can personalize these products in several ways such as adding their photos and, in some cases, adding captions or designed templates.


Summary:
We recommend Snapfish for the very inexpensive print prices it offers and for its very well designed and easy to use website. It would be even better if we could download our original photos for free, and some customization options were offered with the photo galleries to share our pictures.
