People in the Google Photos trial can get 10 of their best photos sent to them as prints.

Google Photos is looking to expand its print offering for people who want physical copies of their memories. The company is running a trial for an $8-a-month subscription program that'll send you 10 prints that will be "automatically selected from your last 30 days of photos," 9to5Google reports.

You can tailor that selection by choosing from three themes -- people and pets, landscapes or "a little bit of everything" -- and the search giant will send out 4x6-inch shots with a one-eighth-inch border, printed on matte white cardstock. The trial is currently only available in the US and the company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about a wider rollout for the service.

If you don't need another subscription service in your life, Google has been letting people in the US order photo prints directly to a Walmart or CVS Pharmacy since September.
