HP today announced that customers of its Snapfish online photo service can now order prints online and pick them up in as little as one hour at their local Walgreens.
The new in-store pick-up service, which includes 4 x 6-inch, 5 x 7-inch, 8 x 10-inch and wallet-sized prints, is now available on the Snapfish website for select Walgreens locations in Boston, New York and San Francisco. Snapfish expects approximately 4,000 Walgreens stores to be participating by September, with additional retail chains expected to be added over time.
Customers simply choose the "pick up" option, enter their zip code, and select a Walgreens store from the provided list of locations.
This follows last month's news of Walgreens selecting Snapfish to provide the retailer's own online photo service at www.walgreens.com/photo.
For added convenience and choice, Snapfish also announced a free print-at-home feature that makes it easy for customers to print their Snapfish photos on their home printers. Customers simply select photos from their account, choose a print size, edit and print. This is a particularly valuable feature for recipients of shared photos who don't have the original image on their PC's hard drive.
In addition, Snapfish launched a new web-to-phone photo-sharing feature that allows customers to send their favorite photos, along with a personalized message, from the Snapfish website to up to 10 mobile phone numbers of their choice. The easy-to-use, three-step process also allows customers to personalize their own mobile phones with photo wallpaper -- offered free for a limited time.
