Huntington Beach, CA—MailPix.com, a photo printing and gifting site, released Photo Print Elf, an Android app for printing photos for pickup at retailers like CVS, Office Depot and Meijer. Users can select pictures to print from their mobile phone’s camera roll and social sites like Facebook, Instagram, Google Plus and Flickr. Photo Print Elf debuted at the Mobile Photo Connect conference at Ft. Mason in San Francisco.
“We know that there is way too much friction trying to get prints of your favorite photos from your social networks and devices,” said Rodney Rumford, vice president, Mobile, MailPix. “Quite frankly it is just far too difficult and time consuming. We wanted a simple way that any user could do this in about 1–2 minutes. Photo Print Elf totally solves that problem.”
Users simply select the social network where their photos are located and choose the photos, quantity and sizes to print. They can then select which stores are closest for print pickup in about an hour, or another location for pickup by friends and family. Users can pick up their photo prints at more than 10,000 local retail locations.
“We aimed to deliver the simplest and easiest Android app solution for consumers to print all of their favorite photos right from their phones, instantly,” added Rumford. “We all live on our devices, and this just seemed like the perfect solution to print from the palm of your hand. We are working diligently to expand the offering to the Apple iOS platform in the coming weeks.”
Photo Print Elf for Android is available now on the Google Play Store.
