Here at Super Snaps we provide a simple, fast and awesome way for you to get your photos from your device into your hands and up on your wall!
We’re a small London-based team with over 25 years experience in delivering beautiful printed products to our customers worldwide, so you can rest easy that your snaps are in safe hands!
We offer an array of print sizes and styles to suit all your printing needs. You can upload your photos from any device!
It couldn't be easier! Here's how...
- Hit the Get Started button and choose a product. You can find out more information about the product by hitting the More Information button.
- Upload your photos from any device, Facebook or Instagram.
- Edit - crop, rotate and the number of each print by hovering over the photo with your mouse or tapping it if you’re on mobile. You'll see an error message under any photos which are low in resolution or missing images so keep an eye out for this!
- Customise your snaps - select gloss or matte finish for all your prints, add text (product dependant) and change border colours (product dependant). You can select individual prints to customise by tapping on the photo. Selected images will show a green glow around them!
- Review your Shopping Basket or add more photos. Then make your payment by PayPal or debit/credit card.
- Ta-dah! Your super snazzy prints are on their way! Keep an eye out for our shiny packaging dropping onto your doormat!
Unfortunately not yet! Our website is mobile responsive and it has been designed to give you the best possible photo printing experience from a mobile web browser.
It sure does! To get the most sparkly amazing prints possible, we recommend that you do not use an image size smaller than 640 x 640 pixels for our small products and 760 x 760 for our large products. These values vary with each product size but our handy website will alert you if your image is too low quality for the selected product/size. We can print smaller files but the printed image may appear pixelated, particularly if the image needs to be enlarged to fit our larger product sizes. It’s your responsibility to check the size of your prints - simply right click and hit check info.
We can’t accept images over 50MB. Most JPEG photos are around 1-3 MB so you shouldn’t have any issues! If your image is over 50MB you can use online image size conversion apps such as Photoshop to reduce your image before you upload to Super Snaps!
If you’re uploading from Instagram your photos may have been converted to a square image with sides of 640 pixels and a standard 72 dpi resolution. There is some JPEG compression applied, but it doesn’t appear to be as aggressive as that used on Facebook. All images will be automatically sized to your printed product size. The quality of the image may vary according to the print size you choose.
We print JPEGs and PNGs - yay! If your snaps aren’t in any of these formats, don’t panic! There are loads of different apps and free online tools where you can convert other image formats to JPEGs and PNGs.
We love printing photos from Instagram - it’s the reason we started! You can access your Instagram account through our site and select which photos you want to print!
We have a minimum order on each product but once you hit the minimum you are charged per additional photo. If you want to order less than the minimum then of course you can, but you will be charged the minimum cost.
Remember if you want multiple copies of one photo you will need to manually add the number of copies you need using the plus sign (+) - there’s more information on how to do this below...hurrah!
Of course...some snaps are so great you need more than one copy! On our Review Page, just hover over the photo you need more copies of and a plus sign (+) will appear in the top right-hand corner! Hit this and enter the number of copies you need - you’ll see them all stack up behind! To make changes to individual snaps (for example if you want to change the caption of each print) click on the stack and they will all display - easy huh?!
We print our snaps using industry leading, high-quality CMYK prints which use 4 colours to make up every image you see printed. Some cameras and device screens use RGB which is only 3 colours. When your snaps are converted to CMYK for printing, the contrast and colour of the printed image can therefore sometimes appear slightly different to how it looks on your screen. This is normal for quality prints and we run daily checks and maintenance to make sure that your prints are as close as possible to the original digital print you uploaded!
When you’re viewing your photos on a backlit screen, they will appear brighter than the actual image is. When they are printed they can then arrive a little darker than expected. To make sure that you get a more accurate print we’d suggest turning down the brightness on your screen by at least 30%.
Yes - of course you can! You can use our super easy Review Page to change the cropping and rotation of your snaps.
To crop your snaps: Simply hover over a photo and you will see the cropping tool appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your image. Hit this and move your photo within the frame of your product to get the perfect print!
To rotate your snaps: Hover over your photo and you will see the rotate tool appear in the middle at the bottom. Hit rotate and see your snaps spin!
If you don’t change the cropping of your pictures our little squirrels will crop your images to make them square. It’s worth checking that you’re happy with the cropping otherwise you might accidentally chop off someone’s head and we’re sure they wouldn’t be too happy about that! Cropping cannot be changed after your order has been placed.
We use thick 350 GSM (grams per square meter) silk photo paper to make our snaps tough and durable.
Depending on the product, we absolutely can! If you can write a caption on the product you’ve chosen then you will see this option appear in the Product Builder. This will show as a small box which says ‘Optional Text’ - just click in the box and add your message!

Afraid not - although we love these little guys if you try to print them on your captions they will be removed.
Uh-oh! Sadly once you submit your order our super speedy squirrels get to work on it and we can’t make any changes to it - they’re just so darn fast! You try catching a squirrel running around the office with a photo. Yep, you get our problem.
We aim to be as efficient as possible so unfortunately once you have completed the checkout we power up the printer and start processing. We’re therefore unable to cancel or make changes to your order.
You will receive a confirmation email confirming the details of your order. If you don’t receive this then check out what to do below under ‘Payment’.
Your Super Snaps are then sent at warp speed through our super efficient system and we start processing your images from the digital to the physical! Using the latest in digital photo printing technology we then print, chop, collect and pack up the snaps you’ve ordered so that your memories are ready to send out and arrive on your doorstep as soon as possible!
As soon as our shiny padded envelopes are shipped out you will receive another email confirming your order has been sent and then you’ve just got to eagerly await them - “I was waiting for my super exciting Super Snaps” is totally a valid reason not to go to work right?*
*We’re kidding. Get to work so you can order even more Super Snaps!
If you haven’t received a confirmation email please check your spam or junk folders - sometimes our delivery squirrels get a little confused and put them in the junk. If you still can’t find it, feel free to send us a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll look into this for you!
As our printed snaps are a personal customised product, unfortunately we’re unable to accept returns and cannot refund.
Oh so many ways! We accept debit and credit cards, and PayPal too.
We take payments in GBP sterling, but PayPal will convert the payment into your local currency (how clever!) so feel free to shop away...we ship internationally too! You can change the currency in the drop down list at the top of the page.
Important information about charges: Super Snaps will charge you in Pounds Sterling (GBP), but we have a US Dollar, and also Euro amount on our site. This is an approximate conversion. Your bank or PayPal may charge you at a slightly different rate (based on the current exchange rate).
