So I went to the photo place down here close to my home at the mall. I got some pictures developed. For 4 days it costs .20 cents a picture..and thats only a 10x13cm picture. Pretty small. I ordered a few of those and a few 13x19cm ones to hopefully frame and hang on my walls. Anyways...then I remembered I had my cd with all my scrapbooking pages on it. I thought i'd go ahead and ask and see how much it would cost to get all of them printed out. I wanted 20x20cm's. It's not THAT big ya know but i'd get them back in 4 days, etc. Well I was only going to print out 18 of them because that's all the cd had but I was missing a few, like 5 more or so. You know how much only 18 was going to cost me??? .. In norwegian krones it was 700 and in US dollars its $140!!!! for 18!!!!! I was like You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME? I'd rather spend that money on something else like actual papers and supplies to make my own out of paper. There is no friggin way I am paying that much just to print out my pictures. I think I'd rather do it online and just have my mom ship them to me.
Anyone know any good sites I can go to where its cheaper to get photos printed? Or is it always going to cost me that much to print out pictures? if so i think i'd rather just keep my digital scrapbook online! or print out pictures online and have my mom save them for me until I can pick them up myself which won't be until august/september. Oh well...
thanks for reading
ugh!! that is expensive! I don't know what you have there as far as stores go. but i get my pictures from either of these sites. www.target.com www.walmart.com www.walgreens.com (i don't know if these ship internationaly) but others that i have used that are strictly onine are www.winkflash.com and www.shutterfly.com
If you parents have a Costco membership, they are the cheapest and they mail them in a really nice canister which would hold up well for your mom to ship it to you. You could just order the prints online, have it shipped to your moms and then have your mom ship it to you. They are less than $2 each for 12 inch x 12 inch prints. Just take a look at www.costco.com and go to their photo section.
wow thanks! They don't have a costco in their town.. but ill check out that site
and wow... 12x12 for 2 dollars? omg... thats soooo much cheaper than these ridiculous prices they have going on here. I couldn't believe my ears when she said that to me. This is the 2nd time since i've moved here that i've had pictures developed. Now I know why i don't go that often. She was charging me $8 dollars for ONE what...8x8inch photo?? so stupid.. lol
I use scrapbooksplease.com to print mine out! I LOVE them!
I get the "premium Luster" paper..I think that's what its called..
with shipping it was $8 a sheet 12X12, BUT the quality is AMAZING!!!!
They have different types of paper to choose...def check it out!
ETA: I just checked out the scrapbooksplease.com website and
they also have 12X12 sheets for 1.99..
8 a sheet is way too expensive for me .. that is how much they were charging me here and it would have been at least 200 dollars just to print out her first year album tried costco but i have to be a member and i'm not. walmart...umm is not that great.. onto wallgreens now. my parents have one of those there in their town and if that isn't what im looking for then i guess ill just need to save up and start paper scrapbooking instead lol
