Print-A-Flickr

Now that I've jumped on the Flickr bandwagon, I figure it's only appropriate that I jump on the Flickr accessories bandwagon too. This is a service called Qoop. Now do you think the founders of this site sat there and asked themselves "what would be a really catchy name for our service? I know! How about Qoop, with a Q! I'm a fucking genius."? Yeah I think that's how it went. Anyway, this service integrates directly with your Flickr account and uses your pictures to create either a complete book or a poster. The results are actually kind of neat and the prices seem to be fair: $16-25 for a book and $10 for a poster (note: those prices are likely in US dollars and there is probably a $97 shipping fee - I haven't checked yet). I think that seeing your pictures printed on a poster or in a book makes you feel like you've got great photography skills even if you're really shite. Neat idea anyway. Here's what a poster of my pictures looks like:

Actually, I was messing around with my twin boys making names with their initials (Q and P)for their fictitious book company. Pooq, qoop, qp, pq, etc...and it was the only one we could get...never thought we'd then use it for this business.

FYI the shipping is cheap - for a book or poster about $ 4-5 ground in the US, $6.70 or so overnight in the US, and $5.15 a lb for non-US shipments (2-8 days).
