Xtra Launches Online Photo Service

Xtra Launches Online Photo Service

New Zealand’s best known internet brand Xtra has launched ‘Xtra Photos’, a new online digital photo printing service making it easier for New Zealanders to get their digital photos into their album.

Xtra has partnered with local digital lab Frogprints to provide a service that enables users to print digital photos through a simple 4 step process on the Xtra website.

Customers upload pictures from a PC, decide which ones they want printed and Xtra will deliver them to the doorstep. Customers can choose from an extensive range of sizes, enlargements, reprints and even get their images onto t-shirts, posters, canvas, calendars and Christmas cards.

Xtra’s Value Added Services Manager Luke Baxter says Xtra Photos is a simple and comprehensive service which New Zealanders of all skill-levels will find easy to use.

“Many of us have photos stored on our PCs and cameras that we just never get around to printing out. When used over a broadband connection Xtra Photos makes it quick and easy to turn those digital files into professionally printed photos.”

Xtra Photos is one of a number of new online initiatives recently delivered by the internet provider. A month ago Xtra introduced a downloadable security product Xtra Security Suite and last week launched an extensive online games channel Xtra Games.

“Xtra is committed to delivering the benefits of broadband to New Zealanders and that includes providing innovative content and services that help Kiwis to do more online,” says Mr Baxter.

Xtra Photos can be accessed at xtra.co.nz/photos or go to the Xtra website and click the ‘Photo Printing’ link on the main navigation bar.
