Advantages Cheap, loads of features
Disadvantages Can't have the piccies the same day!
Hi all - I know its been a while since I've written a review but the baby takes up loads of my time these days!!Anyway, I've found this website which I love and had to tell you about it!! Its www.snapfish.co.uk.
With the new baby I've never used the digital camera so much in my life! Every smile, frown, new movement I'm there with my camera! Poor thing its like the paparazzi for her with all the camera flashes! The problem with a gorgeous baby and an overenthusiastic happy snapping mummy is how much it will cost to print all the pictures off!! Also with a christening coming up shortly and a wedding next year, I knew that to print off all the ones I wanted it would cost a fortune to get them printed off in town. Although its nice to have all the photos on the computer, its nice to have them printed off to put in albums and give to people as printed photos last forever but computers don't do they!On another website that I regularly chat on, someone mentioned snapfish.co.uk - if they recommended me they would get 20 free photos. I would also get 10 free photos just for joining. I thought to myself it was worth having a go, even if only for the 10 free photos!
My initial view of the website was that I was impressed - bold bright colours which makes it look cheerful, easy tabs to click on which makes the site easy to navigate around and the fact it is a service of HP which I know is a reputable company as well.Signing up was easy, you just enter your email address, a password you'd like to use and your first name/surname. Then you are redirected to the home page where you can upload your photos. A nice feature of the site is that you can share the photos with friends/family etc as you can click on 'share' and you will be redirected to a page where you can email people with the link. You can select whether you would like them to have full access (they can copy the photos to their account and share with others) or restricted access (they can only view and order prints of the photos). You can select the gift prints option where you pay for the prints for them.
It is easy to log in each time, you just enter your email address and password which redirects you to their home page which has all the information on it.Snapfish has an online shop where you can purchase items with your photos on - calendars, memory books, jigsaw puzzles, mugs, clothing, posters, mousemats, cards, coasters, placemats and prints. You can also select a prepaid option where you buy a package of prints (which don't expire and you can use as few or as many of your quota at one time) so that it works out cheaper ie 8p or 9p a print instead of 10p a print. The saving is dependent on what package you purchase. I will definitely be using the prepaid option before the christening and wedding as I know I will have a lot of photos. However, I still think 10p a print is cheap compared to having them printed off in town which costs about 3 times as much in some kiosks. Also, the online shop currently has a 15% off Christmas offer which is worth a look.
