Wal-Mart, Fuji offer two-day photo printing

New plan targets those who have digital cameras but lack access to a broadband connection.

Fuji Photo Film and retail chain Wal-Mart on Tuesday expanded an earlier pact to offer customers new options to get prints from digital photos.

Under the agreement, all 3,400 Wal-Mart Stores and Sam's Clubs that offer one-hour digital-photo service will take orders for off-site printing of digital pictures. Four-by-six prints will be delivered within two days and will cost 15 cents per print at Wal-Mart and 13 cents per print at Sam's Club.

The new initiative is mainly aimed at those who have a digital camera but don't own a computer or have access to a broadband connection, the companies said. Fujifilm will not charge for the delivery.

"We are excited about the addition of a digital kiosk to our dropbox, allowing our customers and members to get a great everyday low-price option on digital pictures, just like they have had, and still do have, from film," Sharon Wibben, vice president of Photo and Connections Centers at Wal-Mart, said in a statement. "With the growth of the digital-photo category becoming more mainstream, this only makes sense."

Images uploaded online through Wal-Mart and Sam's Club Web sites for in-store, one-hour pickup service will cost 19 cents and 18 cents, respectively. Home delivery prints will cost 12 cents and 11 cents, respectively, in addition to shipping costs, the companies said.
