Thanks to the smartphone, your camera is rarely out of reach, making it easier than ever to capture memories. But for many of us, those special photos are buried in our phone or uploaded to social media and soon forgotten. With these apps, you can finally get those photos off your phone and onto your walls where you’ll treasure them forever.

For Framed Photos: Keepsake

  • Price: Framed prints start at $20

Keepsake does more than print and ship your photos—it frames them, too. Simply upload photos from your phone and choose a frame style and size. Your family memories will arrive ready to display and enjoy.

For Effortless Collages: Mixtiles

  • Price: First three tiles are $49, every tile after that is $9, and shipping is always free

If you prefer to switch up your home decor often, Mixtiles is for you. This app prints your photos on small 8x8 canvases. The squares easily stick, unstick, and re-stick to your walls without leaving marks, and you can update as often as you’d like.

For Photo Gifts: Shutterfly or Snapfish

  • Price: Prices vary on products, but both run frequent promotions with discounts or free shipping

Think outside the photo frame with Shutterfly or Snapfish. With these apps, you can print your photos on everything from holiday cards and personalized calendars to custom gifts like phone cases, coffee mugs, and pillows.

For Local Pickup: Pic Drop

  • Price: Varies by store

Local stores and pharmacies offered same-day and one-hour photo printing long before the arrival of the smartphone—and they still do. With Pic Drop, you can compare printing prices at all the stores in your area and place an order for pickup from any big chain or independent camera shop nearby.

For Photo Albums: Chatbooks

  • Price: Photo books start at $10, free shipping available when you create an auto-print series

We admit it: This last one won’t get photos on your walls exactly, but there’s only so much space up there anyway, right? Chatbooks creates simple photo albums using the photos you upload to social media or save as favorites on your phone, and ships you a new book after every 60 photos. Change the cover or add captions before they print, or go completely hands off and enjoy the steady stream of family photo albums that arrive at your door.

These apps make it easy to print photos and treasure special memories forever, but trying to use them on a slow internet connection can be a hassle. Contact Pioneer Communications today for the fastest, most reliable internet in southwest Kansas!
