Users sign up online, then simply send photos directly from their phone to firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos are automatically printed and mailed when the queue reaches a user-defined number (such as 36 prints at a time). Users can also send a simple text message to request their prints immediately. The 3" x 4" prints are made using Kodak paper and shipped via mail or overnight. An account and the first 10 prints are free, after which each print costs 11 cents.
