Shelby K.

Great quality and fast shipping!

"I ordered these prints as a part of my wedding invitations and they were perfect! The quality was great and the shipping was faster than expected. I ended up having to order more than I actually needed due to the limited quantity options. But overall, I’m very happy with these prints!"

Erika K.

Year after year…

"I love these and this seems to be my annual way to have print memories of our kids growing…probably 5+ years in. I keep them in a little box by year. Also as I go through and order, I’ll print duplicates of certain pictures with friends to share and send them with the Xmas cards. My friends love getting the little memory as well. "

Zekee S.

Amazing as always

"I have been ordering from Social Print Studios for YEARS now, and I am always beyond satisfied with the customer service, the quality of the prints, and the timeliness of shipping. I have some prints from around 2018 and the colors haven't faded or anything. So thankful for the whole team!!!"

Maureen C.


"Really love the thicker paper quality of these prints. The color balance is correct which can be hard to do and I don’t get from some of those other well known companies. I give prints as gifts sometimes and these always impress "

Jeffrey S.

Great Job. Six stars out of five

"Love the matte finish and card weight. You captured colors drug store printers can’t touch. Arrived promptly. More coming. Jeffrey S. "

Jacqueline G.

Incredible quality AND service!

"I have ordered many times from SPS over the years and absolutely loved the quality of the prints. Recently, I ordered some prints of my wedding photos and the photos printed out slightly grainy which was a bummer. HOWEVER, after contacting SPS they not only refunded me to reorder the prints, they also helped me figure out how to compress my images so they printed properly (thank you Rachyel!) I will never order photos anywhere else. The quality and customer service from SPS is unparalleled. Delivery in the Bay Area is also incredibly fast even with standard shipping. "

Camille P.

Love Social Print Studio

"I love my prints, such great quality!"

Kendall K.

Above & Beyond

"What I was looking for: pictures to spruce up my desk at work What I got: a splash of color and amazing quality of my favorite people and scenes! My pictures have been up on my wall for about a week, and I have lost count of the number of people who have stopped by to compliment the pictures. I couldn't recommend the speed, quality, and love you will recieve from working with Social Print Studio!"

Joanna N.

High quality and great service

"I love this company, and they’re my favorite place to order prints."

Kristin S.

Great product!

"I ordered 4x4 prints of our family Christmases. The prints were perfect for my project and I’ll be ordering more. "

Rachel E W.

Better than most

"The quality of these prints is better than most we've ordered online before, but the color is still off. I think if these had just been photos we had taken on our own phones or cameras they would probably be great, but we printed the professional photos from our wedding photographer and most of the prints came out washed out. They worked ok for the gifts we were giving, but we probably won't be framing and displaying them in our home like we planned."

Sandy J.

Great holiday gifts!

"Heartfelt holiday gifts for family. Was well received."

Stan C.

1000% Better Than The Drug Store Prints...

"I had these several prints made to replace the old ones (drug store prints) that were fading from sunlight. Now to have these framed/displayed!"

I love these mini prints!

"I have 48 mini photos in a small glass box on my family room ottoman. It’s a great way to display a lot of photos in a small space. Plus my grandkids love going through the pictures when they’re here. And the finish in the photos means no fingerprints. This is the best idea ever!"

Kristina D.

Great quality

"Great quality, nice prints. The app is user friendly and easy to edit. Shipping is quick. I would highly recommend giving customers the option to order in smaller quantities ie. The 2.4x2.4 classic prints are minimum 48 photos. "

beautiful prints

"orders some prints to commemorate a special weekend, sent them off to friends and family, everyone was happy to see them :) they are great quality and work as stand-along prints propped up on a ledge or windowsill or just tucked into the corner or a mirror or frame. "

John T.

Good quality prints, true to what I sent

"Color matching what I wanted printed4x6 prints I ordered 20 prints X 3 sets. I would have given 5 stars but I expected 3 complete sets of the 20 photos, to be grouped that way. Instead I had to sort them all into the 3 sets to give out later. No big deal. I guess they came off the printer that wat."

Classic Print FAQ

Product Details

Printed on archival quality 300gsm paper made from 50% recycled FSC-certified paper. Prints are coated with a smooth matte finish to preserve your memories for years to come. Ten sizes to choose from. Available in full bleed or white border.

Can I print my Instagram photos as Classic Prints?

Yep! Instagram photos work great for the square sizes up to 5x5” but their resolution tends to be too low for the 8x8” and 11x11” square prints, so steer away from larger print sizes.

Makes sense! How large do my photos need to be to print?

Square Classic Prints

Rectangular Classic Prints

For more information on the best photo sizes and resolution requirements for your prints, check out this informative blog post about how big you can print your photos.

How do I know if my photo will print well?

Our uploader tool won’t let you upload photos that are too small for a particular print size, but it is unable to tell if a photo is blurry, pixelated, or taken in low light. These are all factors that can cause a correctly sized photo to not print as well. A good way to tell if your photo will print clearly on a larger scale is to check the resolution. We print at 300 dpi and photos at or near this resolution will print best.

If you are still nervous, you can perform what we call the "zoom test" on your image prior to upload. Open up your photo on your computer's photo viewer, and zoom in a little bit. If you are seeing pixelation when you zoom, this will also show up in print.

As a general rule, we recommend printing photos that are taken in natural light. Indoor photos at low light can look fuzzy. Check out our  photo editing guide that will help you choose and edit your photos for the best possible prints.

A Note on Cropping for Full Bleed Prints:

Due to the nature of full bleed printing and trimming, we recommend keeping all important subjects at least 0.25” from the edge of your print shown on the cropping menu or print preview. Full bleed prints can be cropped up to an additional 0.25” from this preview so we recommend keeping all vital limbs, heads, and text away from these crop lines.

No Can Do:

We do not offer glossy prints at this time. If you prefer a luster finish for the larger print sizes, we recommend checking out our Large Format Prints.
