Photo printing websites, with sales options

Hey all,
I have had an increasing number of requests, by readers of my blog, for the opportunity to buy quite a few of my maritime images. It is mainly people or family members of people in the industry, wanting pictures of their boat or etc.
My question is does anyone have a recommendation for a website that allows you to have a gallery I can link to on my blog, that people can buy the printed version of the photo on. So far I have sold a few that is simply got paid via PayPal and went and got printed myself.


Thanks!

SmugMug has that option. You can set prices and everything and the prints come from a professional printing house, not Wal Mart.

I second smugmug. It's what I use and in my experience the print quality has been pretty good. You do have to pay for an account but the lower level account is only $30 a year and for unlimited storage space I find it to be worth it.

If your any good with web coding I can email you a simple one I made and you can edit it to your page. Obviously for free implies not much support but its dirt simple. It doesn't have any fancy content management features to upload and organize, just put the pics in a folder and place the path to them in a part of the page. It uses a paypal basket and adds the picture number so you know what one you need to print.

Not gonna lie its hacked together but its simple and uses a well documented jQuerry gallery so you can customize its layout to fit your page. It uses some minimal php as well, but nothing that would cause any security problems.

Best part is paypal provides its stuff for no additional charge other then a standard paypal fee.
If you know a good boutique photo printer they are way cheaper and of the same or better quality of any of the online photo selling websites.

Thanks for the advice everyone and thanks for the offer Boo, but as I am website illiterate I went with smug mug, just got it going last night and it looks great.

CostCo has pretty good prices and they are great quality images, if you want to go the "cheap, DIY" way.

If by Quality you mean crap, you're right.
