Print-on-demand technology company Merchr has signed up picture-sharing platform ClickASnap, which hosts over 16 million images, as its latest partner, offering photographers a new way to monetise their images.

The agreement sees Merchr facilitate photographers to sell prints and canvases of its images across the UK, North America and Europe by setting up merchandise stores hosted on its platform.

Jason Hill, chief executive of ClickASnap stated, ‘Our partnership has got off to a superb start, with over 1800 photographers signing up in the first month.

‘We look forward to seeing the number of stores grow on our platform to give more people the opportunity to sell their pictures.’

Items are being shipped from Merchr’s integrated facilities in Middleton, Greater Manchester, and Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as through other production partners.

Co-founder of Merchr, Peter Hallett said, ‘This exclusive partnership gives ClickASnap photographers access to the Merchr technology, enabling them to monetise images through their own free webstore that features canvas prints and merch showcasing their content.

‘It’s an exciting strategic move for both parties, as it enables ClickASnap users to further monetise their photographs by leveraging Merchr’s software combined with their own creativity.

‘Initially, the partnership is being rolled out to ClickASnap’s premium members, with a focus on supplying canvas and framed canvas and prints across Europe and North America.

‘ClickASnap members can create their webstores in sterling, US and Canadian dollars and euros, depending on where they wish to sell their images.’
