Walgreens Welcomes, JPEG Labs, A New Photo Prints Integration

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 12:50 - Drew Schweinfurth

We, on the Walgreens API team, are excited to announce the newest Photo Prints API integration by JPEG Labs built directly on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The inspiration for their Photo Prints app was to save photo memories in printed form and not have them be lost forever in the digital landfill. They wanted to create a simple to use, fast and robust experience for their customers to make photo prints with same day pickup at their local Walgreens store. Their uploading process is not only quick and easy but looks absolutely beautiful! 

“As a woman I know that in most families; women do almost all of the photo printing and are in charge of making photo prints, scrapbooks and preserving family memories for generations. We wanted something fast and easy for all of my girlfriends and our customers to use on their phones; since most photos are already on our mobile devices,” said Ashley Taylor, Customer Evangelist of JPEG Labs. According to Taylor, “Walgreens is a brand our customers trust and they provide quality photo prints in 1 hour or less; that coupled with advanced API functionality allows us to create a compelling customer experience, which is the main reason we chose to work with Walgreens.”

The Photo Prints app was designed specifically for a fast mobile experiences. We wanted a time saving and fun experience because everyone is busy these days. Some of the functionality includes:

  • Selecting individual photos or an entire photo album to be printed in a single tap
  • Choosing from 4x6, 5x7 and 8x10 prints
  • Same day pickup at any Walgreens or Duane Reade location in the U.S.

There is nothing better than reflecting back on the great moments of our lives; and experiencing the richness of our photos in printed form is even better than looking at pictures on a phone. This is why the team at JPEG Labs decided to build the Photo Prints app for iOS and Android by leveraging the Walgreens Photo Printing API. Walgreens is the perfect partner for us to team up with to make these Photo Prints apps possible.

The apps are available for download at www.jpeglabs.com, Apple App Store and Google Play.
