When you order from FreePrints online photo printing service, you not only get tons of freebies but you only pay for shipping and extras. But if you are not sure if you will get a quality order, then we have got your back. Here is a review on FreePrints Photo Printing that will clear all your doubts.
What you will see?
FreePrints Photo Printing Features
Although the name has ‘FREE’ in it doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay for anything. But the price is not so bad considering the services. The shipping charges range from $2 to $15 per order. You will see this price is cheaper than most of the other online photo printing services. Also, if you order something other than the initial offering, you will have to pay accordingly. The initial offering includes 85 different 4×6 prints, one 20-page 5×7 softcover photo book, and one 8×8 wall tile. Thus, if you want to add two copies of the same 4×6 prints, you will have to pay for the second copy.
Moreover, you will have to pay the price if you want more than 85 photos in a single month. Thus, if you want different size prints, a larger photo book, a hardcover book, or more pages, all you need to do is pay for them. This is similar to a subscription box service. You get what you want and there is no monthly fee and no commitment of any kind. Although FreePrints has a website, it will simply direct you to its iPhone apps. The FreePrints apps are
1. FreePrints: Photos Delivered
2. FreePrints Photobooks
3. FreePrints Photo Tiles
4. FreePrints Gifts.
Also, in the FreePrints app, you get an option to download Ink. Ink is an app from a different company that is associated with FreePrints.
You will get your 85 free 4×6 prints from the FreePrints: Photos Delivered app. If you want to add a smaller (mini wallet) or larger (up to 20×30), you will have to pay for them. Also, the price is almost similar to other photo printing services. Also, you don’t need to necessarily buy that many prints each month. You can get lesser points or none at all. All you need to do is pay for shipping on each order.
From the FreePrints Photobooks, you will get a free 5×7 softcover 20-page photo book per month. For this also, you only need to pay around $8 for shipping. If you want to add more pages, a hardcover book, a larger book, or more books, you only need the extra items you add. The same is the case for FreePrints Photo Tiles. With this also a free 8×8 photo tile and pay for the shipping. Also, from FreePrints Gifts you get a free photo gift each month. Every month there is a new gift and there are different other gifts you can purchase.
If you want to make some cards, you can go to the Ink app from the link available in the FreePrints app. Although, the concept in Ink is completely different. You don’t get any freebies. Also, you can buy credits and order cards from the Ink app and it will send them directly to you. You can use this app to get your holiday cards and send them to your friends and family directly.
You get cloud storage with the FreePrints app. But you can also use any other cloud storage service available. With so many options to already choose from like Facebook, Instagram, Google Photos, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon, Flickr, and Files, you won’t have the need for another.

What you might not like?
The packaging is not that great. Although, the photos come in an envelope that has a label of “PHOTOS – DO NOT BEND”, you don’t have any guarantee that the carrier won’t bend it. Also, the 20×30 print comes in a tube so it is rolled to fit inside. In the end, you will get curled edges. The biggest setback is you cannot place orders from your computer.
If you are not sure of getting yourself photo prints every month from FreePrints Photo Printing, then don’t worry you are not obligated to order every month. You get up to 85 4×6 prints, a 5×7 softcover 20-page photo book, an 8×8 photo tile, and a different photo gift for free every month and this isn’t a bad deal. All you need to do is pay the shipping charges that are not very high. Also, if you want to upgrade and add some more photos or gifts, then you need to pay only for the extras. Furthermore, it gives a subscription box feel and is easy to order. Moreover, you can order holiday cards and have them directly sent to your friends and family with the associated app, Ink.
