Do you feel like the fun has been taken out of photo sharing at popular Websites like Shutterfly or Snapfish? PhotoFun certainly hopes so, as they launch with a mission to “Put Fun Back in Photo Sharing.”Already rapidly growing in Europe, Photofun is now available in North America.
You’re probably wondering why you should give PhotoFun a try. Well, for a limited time, new users will get 50 free 4×6 picture prints when they sign up for a new no-fee account. However, the site is confident that you will hang around thanks to an easy-to-use interactive Flash interface. Also, pictures are generally priced at around 5 cents a print, approximately half of the industry standard.
Photofun also directs your photos to a printing device in real time, that saves you time and money.
If you’d like to go beyond sharing your photos, users can use their digital photos to create products; everything from calendars to business cards.
Registered users also have the ability to share a “Pocket Photo Album link.” This allows recipients see a recreation of a Pocket Album right on their computer screen. They can flip through virtual pages and can even order their own hard copy.
I like that Photofun is upfront about all costs associated with ordering. You will see a menu of prices as soon as you visit the homepage.
Many people already have their favorite photo sharing Websites. As with most business, people will land with whomever can deliver the best service at the cheapest price. I’ve yet to try PhotoFun but they certainly have my attention.
