Hey everyone,

Well, after 5 years of shooting, my work has taken a turn as of late, and I am getting bombarded with print requests.

I work a 40-50 hour a week day job, and I don’t know what kind of time I can put into getting prints done for people on my own, but I would really love to A. Accomodate my friends + fans, and B. Make a few bucks off prints if possbile.

Basically – I’m wondering if anyone has any advice on a fairly easy way to allow people to order prints, and get the prints to them?

Any help with this would be much appreciated

Thanks!

I love smugmug, people can order prints right off my site and have them shipped right to their door only costs me about $150 a year and I can set my own prices!

I am thinking about going to the pro level with Smugmug. Right now I just am at the power user level which is probably right though I have folks asking for prints. I am in no way a pro but having that capability would be nice and I could help pay for this very expensive hobby!

Another happy SmugMug user. It's easy and gets you out of the printing delivery business completely. At the Pro level you set the prices, the customer does the cropping at order time and pays the shipping, SmugMug automatically deposits the profits if you want them to.

And what's great is you don't have to spend a lot of your time setting it up but you can customize it as much as you like.
