Get your photos printed for pennies, and shipped for free.

How many great photos do you have on your smartphone? 100? 1,000? If you've been saving your cherished memories in digital form ever since your camera stopped using film, you might have even more than that. And now Amazon wants to help you make them a bit more tangible. 

On Thursday, Amazon debuted Amazon Prints, the retail giant's own take on photo printing. Its prices might shock you—in a good way. 

Full-color prints start at less than 10 cents, and work their way up. The basic pricing structure is as follows:

  • 4 x 6: $0.09
  • 5 x 7: $0.58
  • 8 x 10: $1.79

In addition to regular prints, Amazon Prints also offers photo books, which start at $19.99 for 20 pages, with each additional two pages adding $1.00 to the total. Amazon notes that calendars and stationary are also on the way, though they are not available for purchase at this time. 

Amazon Prints uses the pictures stored in your Amazon Drive. If you have an Amazon Prime account, you already have unlimited photo storage available. You can add new photos to your Amazon Drive simply by uploading them

Once uploaded, you can crop and resize the photos based on your own tastes, and you can choose whether the photos are printed on glossy or matte photo paper.

To promote the launch of Amazon Prints, the company is offering free shipping by default for an unspecified amount of time. If you've been putting off your photo printing for months—or years—now might be the time to make your digital photos a bit more permanent.
