Default Wal Mart Photos - Save Through Month End!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that walmart.com (photos only) is offering free shipping to your house through the end of the month. I've got a lot of pics ready to go, but I know a lot of you use these for TTM so wanted to share the wealth. $.09 a piece plus tax DLVD......can't beat that!!!

good luck with that, walmart is pretty NASTY when it comes to reproducing sports photos they know YOU DIDNT TAKE OR HAVE THE RIGHTS TO REPRODUCE

Actually Wal-Mart is NASTY in general.

ive printed a few sports pictures at target. no one ever says anything bc if you use the self serve kiosks no one else ever sees the pictures anyhow. I save them to an SD, or any kind of memory card, and im good to go.

that i'm not sure. when i search, i use google images and on the left hand side select "large." if i can't find any good ones in large, i do "medium." usually i don't take anything under 400x700 (for 4 x 6) and they've all come out fine so far.

Looks like this is a much easier way to do it than pay $4.99 plus shipping for a number of 8x10s. Got this straight from their terms though you sure they don't check this?

WALMART.COM will not assist in the copying of a photograph that is signed, stamped or otherwise identified by any photographer or studio as copyrighted material, or any photograph that appears to have been taken by a professional photographer or studio, even if it is not marked with any sort of copyright,

I've done a couple hundred now without problems. I've only heard of one person having problems with ordering online and sending them to their house. The only one was a movie poster, and they refused it because it had the title of the movie in the pic itself. I will agree that at the store it's a whole different ballgame, but online to your house they are VERY LENIENT.

And I guess it's not like they threaten that they'll sue you for copyright infringement or anything. Man for that price I better get busy. Thanks.

BTW a lot of the photos I've seen on StarTiger have white borders and below the photo there are like logos of the shows/etc like the one listed below. What are these from?

Which finish works best with autos? Luster or glossy? Do you need to do anything to prepare them for signing? Thanks.

Wal-Mart told me I couldn't print photos I took because they "couldn't possibly be my photos"...fail.

That was in the store though I'm guessing. Possibly at the kiosk??

Fail for me. Wanted copyright notices. So glad I only "paid" $0.09 or so per photo that I'll never get back. Is printing the photos myself against any rules? Obviously I'd need to pick up some photo paper.

also you should get the $.09 back for each one as a credit to whatever source you used to pay.

Just a few examples. Some of 'em were obvious (photos of celebrities) and I didn't have time to react to the ones that probably weren't "professional". The bowling ones could be non-professional as could the HOF plaque and the Samardzija IMO.

So did they produce and ship out the ones they didn't question? I didn't see any problems with any of those; they are similar to the ones I've done in the past. I even had these shipped to me just Friday.

Problem was I picked them up in-store because they don't deliver to P.O. boxes.

yeah, you can't do that. If you have them sent to your home (like the original post said), you'll be fine.

Might try that. I forgot that I ordered 4x6's not by 8x10's so I shouldn't have to worry about whether they'll fit in my mailbox.

i have printed off hundreds of sports photos. Most of which have logos on them. SI covers, Sporting Magazine covers, EA sports game covers and have only had 1 batch turn up copyright... they must randomly check them or something... your odds are great to get these to go through.... I will be uploading a ton tonight

I do agree though now that I think about it that getting them in person probably doesn't help though. Let's hope this works through the mail.
