About the Company
Prints.ly is an online service to help photographers sell their art. Photographers upload their work and set a price. Prints.ly creates a store, handles payments, printing, and shipping. Using this service is a simple, efficient way to deliver professional quality prints to customers.
Photographers need an efficient and easy way to share and sell their work. Most photographers would prefer to focus on their craft rather than learn how to set up a web store.
I was responsible for all aspects of design including task flows, wireframes, and finished visual comps. I worked directly with the founder of the company who handled the build.
