Yes, It Is Cheaper to Print Your Own Photos - Here's How!

Recent quarantines across the world have taught us the importance of working from home and accomplishing tasks without going out in public. While it isn't feasible to perform all of your daily tasks at home, one trip that you can save is the trip to Walgreens or Walmart to print your photos. At-home printers have seen a comeback in the COVID area, but the concept begs the question: at home? Fortunately, DoNotPay offers an affordable and easy solution for photo printing that doesn't require you to buy a printer or leave your house.

Aside from learning if it is cheaper to print your own photos, we can also assist you in:

Which Photo Printing Option Is the Cheapest?

When answering the question “?” it is important to remember the adage: time is money. Let's take a look at three photo printing options you have available:

  1. Printing photos at a department or drug store's photo center
  2. Printing photos on your at-home printer
  3. Printing your photos through DoNotPay
Photo Printing Departments Offer Cheap PrintsSeveral department or drug stores -- including Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS -- have photo departments and offer prints cheaply, making them a popular location for printing services, particularly since many of the photos we receive these days come as digital files. Often, you can purchase multiple copies of photos in standard sizes such as 4x6 or 5x7 for under a dollar while the price increases along with the size of the photos you are ordering. Most of these stores provide you with the ability to upload photos to their website for a one-hour service.

The problems you can run into when having your photos printed at a store's photo department include:

  • The time required to upload photos to confusing websites and go to the store to pick up the photos.
  • Issues with the printing of the photos, such as they are too dark or off-center.
Printing Photos On Your At-Home PrinterMany people choose to skip the store photo center instead of purchasing their at-home printer to print photos at home. However, while this method saves you time in figuring out the store's website or traveling to the store to pick up your order, it isn't a perfect solution by any means. Some of the issues that can cause time and money issues when you're attempting to use an at-home printer for photos include:
  • The cost of the printer, photo paper, and ink is far more than ordering a few prints from the store. If you only wish to print photos occasionally, these costs are often prohibitive.
  • You still have to leave your home to purchase the printer and supplies or to have the printer repaired if it malfunctions.
  • The quality of the photos printed on at-home printers is sometimes questionable, and you are limited on the sizes and finishes of your photos.
