A Smooch from FatHeadDog (and LIFE magazine)

You know, that’s FatHeadDog on the right. Not really, but Snapfish has teamed up with LIFE.com to offer the iconic magazine’s historic photos as printed cards, which make great personalized stationary for thank you cards and the like.  These selected number of photographs from LIFE.com’s archives can help capture the exact emotion you’re looking for in your greeting cards, notecards and notebooks. It plans to introduce more offerings in the coming months, according to a Snapfish press release.

I can personally recommend the high-quality greeting cards and notecards, but Continue reading “A Smooch from FatHeadDog (and LIFE magazine)”

Have thousands of unprinted digital photos?

When it comes to printing your digital photos, you have plenty of choices–you can take your memory card to your local drugstore for in-store printing, printing at home on a photo printer, or uploading them online for snail mail delivery. Here’s a great starter’s guide from Cnet to printing your digital photos:

Print at home

Printing at home is cheap and long-lasting if you use the right printer, ink, and paper. A 4×6 print will typically cost between 25 and 50 cents, depending on the printer and the ink. Of course that doesn’t include the cost of the printer or user error. Be sure to read Cnet printer reviews to get an idea of how often you’ll need to replace the ink cartridge.

Highlight: convenience

Lowlight: inferior quality

Print at a store kiosk

Store kiosks are convenient, and they let you do a lot of basic editing right on the spot (cropping, adjusting brightness, removing red-eye, etc). If you shop around, you can find stores that let you create 4×6 prints for well under 50 cents each. These do-it-yourself machines are a good alternative if you’re not in the mood for the care and feeding of your own photo printer.

Highlight: great option for those less adept at photo editing

Lowlight: time consuming unless you organize which photos you want to print first at home

Online printing services

Online print services such as Shutterfly, SnapFish, Kodak EasyShare Gallery, and many others are often the least expensive and can give great-looking prints. However, like the good old days, you’ll have to wait to see the results. But that’s fine when you’re printing a large number of images—for instance, all your vacation photos.

Highlights: plentiful coupon codes can be found at Slickdeals.net and this site

Lowlights: can be daunting for less-skilled users
