FREE old-fashioned photo strip & FREE shipping March 20, 2010

Do you remember those old photo booths where you’d pull the curtain and take a series of photos (the goofier the better) and then a strip of photos would print a few minutes later? I still have a photo clipped from one of those strips on the side of my refrigerator. Ah, my crazy younger years…

Here’s a chance to make your own old-fashioned photo strip (3 to 5 photos of your choosing) for FREE and have it shipped to anyone you want for FREE! Shutterfly has a new division called Wink, and to build their customer base, they’re offering this deal!

Simply go to http://www.shutterfly.com/wink/, sign in or sign up, then upload your photos and create your FREE photo strip! I uploaded photos from a recent trip to a botanical garden (of my kids, of course), and had it shipped to my grandparents on the other side of the country. Where will your photo strip go?

Ok, there are no excuses left now for not filling that fabulous 8×10″ frame that is just collecting dust in your closet… Pull it out, dust it off, and upload your favorite 8×10″ photo to print — for FREE!

Walgreens is offering a FREE 8×10″ photo print today when you use their online photo service. Simply upload your photo, enter code FREEPHOTO, and select the location for pick-up. If you have it shipped, you’ll have to pay shipping.

Here’s a great tip — have it ready at the photo recipient’s nearest Walgreens. I’ve had photos printed at a Walgreens in another state and paid for them ahead of time online, then my aunt just drops by to pick them up to share with my husband’s grandmother (who does not have Internet access).

Find a Walgreens near you.

FREE 8×10″ canvas print of your photo February 6, 2010

Now here’s a way to make a BIG impression! Find an old favorite photo — or a new one — and have it professionally printed on canvas. This would make an amazing gift, or a fabulous way to showcase your business’ logo as your customers walk in the door.

Canvas People is offering a FREE 8×10″ canvas print of your photo or image, or a $55 credit toward a larger canvas size, photo effects, and frames. All you have to pay is shipping, which was just $14.95 when I tried it out (for an 8×10″ canvas to be shipped to Texas).

Their products are gallery-wrapped, so the image goes all the way around the frame and what you receive is a finished product. They’re also “sprayed for protection” so that the art can withstand the test of time.

Mother’s Day is coming up sooner that you think… Take the hint and thank me later. 🙂

100 FREE 4×6″ prints from Snapfish January 24, 2010

100 FREE 4×6″ prints from Snapfish! Chances are, you have some photos hanging around on your computer or camera that you’d like to get printed, but why work your home printer to death? Use this deal from Snapfish to get 100 FREE prints with ANY purchase.

The only catch is that this deal is for mail-delivery only (not in-store pick-up), so you’ll have to pay shipping, but that’s less than $5 for the 100 prints. U.S. customers only.  Offer may not be used in conjunction with any other offer.

As for the other item to purchase? There are oodles to choose from! The least expensive option would be to order a single 4×6″ print, so your photo order totals 101 prints, but surely you can be more creative than that. Remember, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re thinking about a photo gift, now is the time to get it ordered!

Use code PRINTSNEW for your 100 FREE 4×6″ prints at check-out!
