We're sorry, but local print pickup is temporarily unavailable. We are working on the software.  In the meantime, you can download any dotphoto album to an SD card, and take the card to your drugstore for printing.  Click here for info on downloading.


You can send prints the same day to your local drugstore, or even send prints across the country to someone else to pick up. Of course, there is no shipping fee.


Professional Prints cannot be printed locally

We're sorry, but local pick-up is not possible for professional photos. This is because drugstore printing prices are higher than dotPhoto prices, and also because we cannot guarantee the quality of drugstore printing, which is sometimes not acceptable for our professional photographers. The option for local pickup does not appear when ordering as a guest of a professional photographer.


When will my prints be ready for pickup?

Generally, orders sent in the morning will be available for pick up in the afternoon. Orders placed in the afternoon are usually ready for pickup the next day by about 11 am. When in doubt, please contact the store. 


When do I pay for local prints?

You can pay for an order when you pick it up at the store.
