Snapfish VS Shutterfly // square prints

 I have looooadddss of square prints *races upstairs to my bedroom to count* *tumbles down the stairs* *out of breath*
 60. Yup, SIXTY. THE BIG SIX O
I basically ran out of space on my walls, and cork boards *laughs* so this time around, I had to be creative. << Check out my instagram post here >>

 I've tested both Shutterfly AND Snapfish prints -- *puts on news reporter voice* I'm here to tell you which you should buy -- CAUSE YOUVE GOT TO ALRIGHT - SQUARE PRINTS ROCK

Snapfish pros -
  • they're website design makes sooo much sense (thats a big deal to me)
  • square prints are $0.20
  • first timers get 100 FREE (YES I SAID FREE) 4x6 prints
  • they have password reset for all those people who forget passwords (LIKE ME)
  • SHIPPING IS AMAZING LIKE 3 DAYS PEEPS

Shutterfly pros--
  • if you want an instagram-y look, GET THESE
  • you can upload directly from your personal instagram account
  • they also have password resets *laughs because yes I forgot that one too*

Snapfish cons -
  • don't save all your images as "j2" over and over and over again in an effort to save space on your computer -- they don't recognize the different photos :|
  • they have a standard shipping price, which can be annoying if you are only getting a few prints, BUT AMAZING if you're getting a lot *wink*
Shutterfly cons--
  • Square prints are $0.25
  • they make good photos look dark and grainy 
  • SHIPPING STINKS LIKE ONE WHOLE WEEK TO GET TO US
  • Shipping prices vary in a CRAZY amount of money

 I'm a Snapfish lover *thumbs up*

Snapfish or Shutterfly for you?
Can you list any more pros for Shutterfly??

  2. Thanks for the advice, it's invaluable to me since I've tried neither and now I know which to use should I ever want to. Which I'm sure will happen soon. It depends on how far they ship...

  5. Those are adorable! I've only used Shutterfly so far, but I'll have to check out Snapfish and see about those square prints. ;) (And just so you know, Shutterfly also offers 101 free prints when you sign up! And I like it because they send "coupons" for free stuff all the time-- you just have to pay shipping, which is only like $3, which isn't bad for some things... But it looks like Snapfish has a slightly better quality!) Oh, and congrats on 100 followers!!!!!!

    1. oooh you should! I didn't know that! UHG isn't it funny how companies always try to one up another company?? xD Oh yeaaah, I do get coupons in the "mail" hehe! But Snapfish also does that.
      awwww THANK YOU! You're the only one who has noticed so far *hugs*

      yay! You went to Snapfish xD (also, I read over my post in the end and realized I probably seemed like I was paid to write this post. lol I wasn't. BUT THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE LOL)

  7. AAAH THOSE LOOK SO CUTE AND PINTEREST-Y. Once we move and I start doing my room, I am SO SO buying square prints. I know I am. I've never used Snapfish, but SHUTTERFLY SHIPPING IS THE WORST HORRIBLEST THING EVER. I hate it so much. I ordered a personalized mug last week, and it's supposed to come in early August? I DON'T LIVE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD SHUTTERFLY PLEASE GET THAT IN YOUR HEAD. Also I really hate how the shipping varies so much...ughhh so much complaining i am doing.

    so yeah, I'm not sure where I'll get them. I definitely want to check Snapfish out though! I've used Shutterfly to order portraits that I took of some of my friends and they turned out pretty awful...but I'm pretty sure that's because I over-edited the pictures. aaah.

    ALSO CONGRATS ON 100 FOLLOWERS DUDE THAT IS SO COOL *hands waffles, cake, and ice cream over* (You're off the no-sugar right?) ^_^ THAT IS A HUGE MILESTONE WOOOOOT

    1. WELL THATS BECAUSE I TOOK THEM OFF OF PINTEREST *covers face in hands* *laughs*
      YAY YOU ARE. PLEASE POST PICTURES OF THEM ON YOUR BLOG PLEAASE PLLLEEASE PLEASE
      yyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssssssss!! ITS SO TRUE. Its like I DONT LIKE LIVE ON THE MOON KK??! Oh gosh! That was literally one of my cons to Shutterfly, how the shipping prices vary so majorly. But the post was sooo long so that was one of the things that I cut out xD
      AUTUMN YOU AMAZING PERSON YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH OKAY *moans cause as of yesterday i'm back on the no sugar* *takes the treats anyways and hands them to siblings* They love you now ;) UHHGGGG THANK YOU <3 <3

  8. I've never used snappish... But I like shutterfly because we get coupons all the time giving us 101 free 4x6 prints... But the catch to that is you should get 99 prints instead of 101 because the shipping is a couple dollars less.

    1. ohhhh, I hate it when there are those little tricks in the system :P BUT snapfish does similar things as well. They send me coupons in my email all the time :D

  9. I LOVE SNAPFISH. I just discovered it earlier this year and had a fun time printing out some of my favorite pictures to stick on my wall. :P Gah, now I want to take some pretty pictures off of pinterest and do the same thing. Or do cool story inspiration pictures. Hm, I have so many ideas going through my head, now. Thank you. xD

  11. this helps. I've been thinking about printing some pictures to put in my room. So do you think that shutterfly has better quality or is better than walmarts photo center? If so why? Because that's what my family uses.

    p.s. I'd really love to see some tips for making your room look cool like yours. Cause I admire your room. I'd love to hear tips and how you do it. :)

    1. aww I'm glad! Um, actually no, I would not say that Shutterfly has better quality than walmart photo center has. I did the walmart prints for my character profiles earlier this month. They are super clear and sharp! BUT if you like a darker, more instagram-y look, go for Shutterfly. :)
      oh, goodness thank you Ellie!! <3 Hmm. tips? I guess one thing that is a must are fairylights xD gahhh, love those things! Maybe I'll do a blogpost on this ;)

  13. Have you seen the hearts made out of photos on the wall? I found it on Pinterest, and then MY FRIEND ACTUALLY DID IT, and now that we've moved my mind wheels are totally turning, and I kind of have this thing for walls, haha, and I SOOOOOOO want to do one of those above my bed.... and then a wall collage above my desk. And some canvases somewhere, because I have an obsession with making those things. AHHHH :D. We'll see what happens, haha :). How do you hang your photos up?

  14. Thank you so much for doing a post on these two photo companies. I am definitely going to use Snapfish. I'm so excited!! I never knew "square prints" existed before you introduced me to them. Thank you!! :)
    You said first timers get 100 prints free. Do you still have to pay shipping?

    1. Oh you're so welcome! I'm so glad I was able to help you!! YES USE SNAPFISH! wooah, really?! They're THE best <3 <3
      Yes, you will have to pay shipping. But, it should only be around $4. Also, the free prints aren't square. :P But, you could always cut the 4X6s into square!! :D

  15. SO I KNOW YOU POSTED THIS A WHILE AGO, BUT THIS IS JUST SO STINKIN' ADORABLE. I'm planning on using a ton of them for my new bedroom. *nods* Do you recommend the gloss or matte finish?

    1. GAHHHH THANK YOU!!!!!!!! (and don't worry about me posting it a while ago, I love comments no matter what! <3 ) oooooooooooohhhhh YES YES YES YES do it!! oh I totally recommend matte -- gloss bothers me on my walls. It shines funky or something lol!
