Social Print Studio – creative uses for your web photos

Have you ever wanted a trendy poster in your office showing off all of your Facebook or Twitter friends? Have you ever thought that if you could just print your Tumblr pics into a fancy poster that life would be complete?

Enter Social Print Shop, a new startup devoted to helping you creatively print your social networks. Here are the specific options currently available:

  1. Facebook Friend Poster– 20″x40″ customizable print
  2. Facebook Album Poster– pick a specific album and print it right up!
  3. Twitter Poster of either people you follow or a poster of people that follow you
  4. Mini Books are like the modern brag book made up of Facebook album pics or friends’ profile pics.
  5. Lil’ Photo Stickers are also printed from Facebook shots.

In the future:

We spoke with Benjamin Lotan who runs Social Print Studio who told us that in the future, Flickr will be supported and that the studio is on the verge of releasing an iPhone app that is “independent of the existing social networks, a pure Social Printshop app.” We’re hoping for an eventual Posterous integration since we’re Posterous users… fingers crossed!

If you want to get beta previews of new products, you can sign up on the bottom of their website to be the first in the know.

Print ideas:

We love the idea of taking web prints offline and our creative juices are flowing. Here is a list of ideas that Social Print Studio can make happen:

  1. Prints for your office. Not too clever, but super sexy, mod and fun!
  2. Imagine hundreds of little stickers with your profile pic on them randomly placed around your city for fun.
  3. Upload your last several listings to a Facebook album and make a spiral bound mini/pocket sized brag book.
  4. Print up a mini book of all of your FB friends at your next conference and get as many autographs as possible!
  5. Take a ton of pics at your client’s closing and have it printed as a stop-motion flip book with the last page being your logo and website!
  6. For birthdays and holidays, put together fun Facebook albums and have mini stickers printed up, yay!

I could go on and on… add YOUR ideas in the comments!

    This is very, very cool. Not sure what I would do with a poster like this, but I’m scheming…
