"This was my first time using the site and it went great. I ordered a Collage Poster print at 20"x30" and it came out fantastic. I notice all these 1 star reviews on here complaining about blurred photos and what not, well, those people are obviously retarded and are doing it way wrong.When you use a photo, make sure you use a photo that is large and uncompressed. for instance the file sizes on one of my bigger photos was 1920x1080 that went on the collage. That is relatively small for "printing" but it still turned out great.I imagine people are submitting very small photos and are wanting them to look just as good as they do small as they would on a much larger print. Thats not how hit works, they are forced to stretch the image to the print size. So no need to blame them for something thats impossible for them to fix.The bigger the file size and resolution the better. The more pixels the better the outcome. its that simple.---My one complaint which isn't even bad is that between the glass and the poster in the frame was a very small dust smudge or something. Its not on one of the pictures themselves but rather on a black portion of the poster. Not a big deal, not even noticeable unless you really look at it."
"I have never been so frustrated with ordering anything in my life!!! I hardly ever write reviews but this is rediculous. I uploaded several pictures to order and submitted them to print. I got a conformation saying my order was received and will arrive in 5 days. 5 days later I get online to check my order status and on my account it says my order was cancelled. I didnt receive an email or any type of notice and I did not can el the order. I contact cs thru email, chat and phone and told them the issue. 2 days later I heard back from them saying they rejected it (even tho they already charged my cc) Customer service said I needed to upload a copyright release on some of the photos. That took about 2 minutes and I send a follow up email saying its been done please process my prints. I get an email 2 days after that saying they cancelled my order due to copyright and I need to upload the release. ( are you kidding me I put that exactly how and where they asked me to before they even thought about writing this email!). I submitted another request for help and the cs rep sends me an email talking about me that she meant to send to someone else... I will not ever use snapfish again. There are so many other places out there I don't need this headache from dealing with idiots! My issue has still NOT been resolved and it doesn't seem like they care about losing customers. "
"The original site for my family to produce table top books from digital photography, they have been knocked on their heads by Shutterfly in terms of flexibility, navigation on the site and the ability to be creative with the production of your photos. Both sites stink in terms of customer service. And this is important; because if you need something, if something goes wrong (as it has with each site), it is nearly impossible to get resolution. In my opinion, there is a market to offer this product on a stable, dependable platform, with easy to use creativity...that also has good, solid and caring customer service."
"Okay, I honestly do not know why people are complaining about Snapfish. I have a Canon T2i and 3 canon lenses, I also use my 50mm 1.4 lens quite often, and when print LOTS of photos, I WANT TO GET A DEAL! So, when I do print, I generally only print when Snapfish has their penny prints deal (300-500 photos [and I print multiple orders, because you just can't beat that]). But, honestly, I was reading through these reviews, and actually laughed because the ONLY time your prints will look bad from snapfish, is either when you have bad photos, OR, you didn't format it for printing. If you have a photo that was taken from a camera that doesn't have very many megapixels, and you WANT to get a huge blow up print of it, well, guess what....not going to happen. So many complain about Snapfish printing photos that are bad quality.....when really, although Snapfish isn't Millers Professional Lab or WHCC, they still have good print IF you format them for whatever size you're wanting to print. If you want just a 4X6, don't over sharpen it, over saturate it, etc....it just makes your photo look awful. People don't cuztomize their photos before printing, and upload them directly from their computer and expect them to get GREAT AMAZING photos for only a penny. yea, you get what you pay for, but if you has photos that were properly formatted for print, you wouldn't get BAD print from Snapfish. I know, I order from them all of the time. My first order was really bad, but then I realize that you can't upload compressed files, or photos that are blown up, cropped, or overly edited. They get pixelated, and it looks bad. Since then, I've ordered from Snapfish 95% of all my photos when they have their penny prints deal, I save so much money, and I get REALLY AMAZING 4X6 prints. Seriously, they're really REALLY good. Just upload them in the exact quality that you took them in (no compression) and you'll be just fine. I really do like Snapfish a lot, and with many of hte 4X6 prints that I get printed off from them, they're really so good that I can't tell a difference in quality compared to Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, or any other printing site online...and I've printed at ALOT! Snapfish's color quality, is alot more colorful as well. I honestly believe that you're coming out on the better end with Snapfish than walmart, only if you send in photos that are formatted for a 4X6 size. Don't expect a photo the size of a wallet photo on your computer screen, to fit the size of a printed 4X6....it will be pixelated. I recently ordered 2 photos from my 18 megapixel camera, to be posters, one 12X18 poster, and another 20X30. BOTH WERE extremely impressive. I was actually shocked and didn't expect it to be quite that good."
"When you submit and order it can stay in "processing" for a week and half and does NOT allow you to cancel the order until it changes to processing. By then it is too late and you cannot get a refund. My holiday pics were ordered in plenty of time to arrive on time (the photo book I ordered did!) but because they did a LivingSocial they must have been extremely backed up for normal pics orders. They only resolution was "we will make sure they arrive before Dec 24" which doesn't help someone going out of town before that! Horrible wait times for customer service to tell me "we can't cancel your order yet" (mult times!) and then "too late your order was processed" you had to cancel w/in 30 mins or ordering! Should have stayed with shutterfly!"
"Have had a few problems with Snapfish lately. I ordered from them in the past and was pleased, but the last few books I have ordered were not dark and sharp, even though the image I sent was very appropriate for the smaller size printed. Second, I ordered a book on 12-12 and when I went online to check the tracking, my order # was listed instead of a real tracking #. When I called customer service to ask about it, I was told that there was no way to track it with the wrong number so there was no guarantee that it would arrive by the holidays. Luckily this was not a main gift, but the way they handled my problem will ensure that I use Shutterfly (never had a problem with them and the quality and clarity was top notch) in the future. I cheaped out by using Snapfish because they were offering free shipping and discounts but it wasn't worth it. Perhaps others will have a better experience, but as for me once burned, twice shy. I've now been burned a few times."
"Ordered Snapfish xmas, photo cards... no issues with quality or shipping time. Ordered 12/16 Fr & by Sun cards were done & at UPS for delivery... Received TUam 12/20. 1st time using Snapfish... they are not nearly as good as Tiny Prints. Tiny prints has more choice in paper quality, envelopes, return address labels, and card design! Their site is even a bit easier to use. ALSO MOST IMPORTANT: Irked that Snapfish forces you to buy in 20 card lots... 20, 40, 60, etc. I used about 45 cards... forced to pay for all that extra just to ensure not being short. Consumer not informed until you are done creating your card and ready to check out. Would have gone back to Tiny Prints if I wasn't running so close to xmas. Will likely NOT use Snapfish again. "
"Ordered Christmas cards on November 28 and it was indicated they should be shipped by December 2. On December 8 I called and was told it would be another 3-4 business days before shipping. On December 13 called again and found out it will be another 2-3 business days. I am screwed b/c am leaving the country for the holiday. Customer Support is inadequate."
"I have been a customer of snapfish for years however when i had a problem with an order arriving on time they not only lied and patronized me but did not solve the problem. the tracking information they provided in an email allowed me to track my package. On the UPS website it said it was delivering it to an incorrect zip code even tho I input the correct information. I called to inform them about this and they assured me that it will be received on time at my location and that the UPS website has wrong information on it sometimes. I waited for the projected delivery date. nothing. I waited the next day. nothing. I called to complain. They tried to tell me that the zipcode on the UPS site is the current location of the package (even tho it has been that same zipcode since day one) and that it takes 8 days for delivery (even tho i paid for 3-5 and it's been a full 5). After an hour of being on phone they still wouldn't do anything for me and just told me to wait. Like I said i've been a customer for years. its the first time i've received such bad customer service. This was suppose to be a gift and I did not receive it on time. I am very disappoint both for the fact that I was not able to give my gift on time and in the treatment from your company. Its such a shame to end years of business this way.The rudeness of the customer support was horrible. The person did not understand my problem and did not address the issue. They also told me a bunch of lies and expected me to believe them. Extremely patronizing."
"I just ordered almost 3000 pics with the penny picture deal. Most of my pictures had distorted facial features and the outer lines on people were also distorted with a hazy look to them. They must use subquality printing methods when offering this "deal". Tried to call and can only get someone in India, which I cannot understand and spent most of my conversation asking, "what did you say???". First and last time using snapfish."
"I placed my order for my pictures last Sunday and they arrived on Saturday. Shipping was free so I'm not really complaining about that. The prints however, could be better. The picture I uploaded to be printed was plenty large enough for a 12x18 print, which is what I ordered. I am a photographer and already had the image sized and ready to print. The picture I got back wasn't quite what I was expecting. I uploaded an uncompressed, unsharpened image and what I got was something that looked resized, blown up, sharpened and then compressed. While it doesn't look too bad from a distance, it's a bit annoying that they decided to add sharpening and compression to the image."
"I ordered some pictures from my wedding last Thursday. Snapfish told me that they would have them here by Tuesday. Well, it's Thursday again and still no pictures. When I inquire with customer service they keep telling me to be patient and that they have shipped...The only reason why I don't get really mad at them is becasue I ordered a photo book a few weeks ago that was here on time...Anyway, I'd say Snapfish is so,so. I you don't mind waiting around for your stuff then I say go for it!"
"it takes a week to prepare the order and another week for shipping. by far, it is 10 days and I haven't got my prints.Never ever use it again."
"I ordered 8 copies of identical photobooks as Christmas gifts. The designing process is a little frustrating; their layouts and font choices are very limiting. I spent a couple hours designing my 8" x 11" photobook.When I chose which kind of shipping to use, I made sure to select the necessary shipping speed to receive my order by Christmas. So on the 11th I placed the order, with every expectation that I would have the books on time. Come December 28th I sent an email to Snapfish Customer Service to ask why my order didn't arrive by Christmas. Turns out, my order was one of several that were skipped. They refunded $30 for my shipping costs, and said they'd send out my order right away. I appreciated the honesty about the problem, and professional response to my complaint.It is January 7th, and I just received my package (almost one month after placing the order).While the shipping delay was very frustrating, I might have given them another chance, seeing that it was probably a fluke. However, after excitedly opening my photobook, and seeing the quality of it, I decided that I will never order from them again. My pictures are high-quality, professional photos, so I know the file-sizes I sent them were fine. But the photo on the cover of my book was fuzzy. There were flecks of lint sealed into the cover (noticable on the plain white back of the book). The text down the spine was crooked and not centered well.The inside photos were not fuzzy, but you could see the pixels. It looked like the photos were printed with a home-printer. The binding is unattractive- and the fact that they include that last, all-white page with the snapfish logo just ticked me off. (Especially because they don't mention it in the ordering process.)I got these books at 50% off and with free shipping, and I still don't think they were worth the money. I would rather spend a bit more, and try out one of the many other companies that make these kinds of things. My advice is to not use Snapfish - especially for photobooks."
"i have used this service for years. last december, the site lost ALL my pics. when contacted numerous times, they couldn't correct it. i had credits, lots of prepaid credits, left, so i have tried several more times, the latest being today. my pics disappear right after uploading. i never even get a chance to print out. if you want reliable, don't come here!!!!!"
