Printing photos can be expensive, but if you have some patience and know where to look for deals you can print your photos for cheap.
Create a “To Print” folder
Instead of printing photos as I take them, I print photos as I find deals. I have a folder on my computer called “To Print” where I keep a copy of all the photos that need to be printed. As I print them, I remove them from this folder (since they are just copies, not originals). When a hot photo printing deals is available, I don’t have to take the time to figure out what I want to print. I just upload the photos from the To Print Folder and place my order within minutes.
Know your best print price
My best print price is less than 7c shipped. Always remember to account for shipping when you figure out the cost per print. If you aren’t sure how to do this, just take the total amount you paid for your order and divide it by the number of prints you ordered. So if you got 100 prints for $5 shipped, you paid 5c a print.
