Office Depot / OfficeMax Online Photo Review

When we tested August 2020
Summary While Office Depot has potential to be a convenient local photo lab option (there are only a few such as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart), it falls short. Locally, the print quality is terrible: The prints are more of a postcard or cardstock print, not a photo lab print. Several of our test prints had visible flaws, such as the balloon print. The color has an orange glow. Their online prints are far superior in vibrancy but the use far too much packaging, while also being the most expensive shipping of all we tested.

Scan of a printed photo of a appy grandpa smiling in front of a birthday cake. The cake has numbered wax numbers in it on the right, facing the grandpa reading, “94.” The cake is square with white and green frosting with 3 other candles on the left (his right) side of the cake. The old man has a grey, well-manicured beard and is wearing glasses (they’re highly magnified with his eyes slightly enlarged) and smiling bright. He’s holding up one hand in celebration. He’s wearing a multicolored flower lei and a blue shirt. Behind him is a woman with a huge smile, actively laughing, wearing a flowered tank top and a man, in his 30s, also smiling and with a beard wearing a grey long sleeve shirt and green pants. They’re all standing in what appears to be a living room and having a wonderful time.

Scan of a photo: Beautiful icelandic landscape featuring a couple walking towards the right, centered in the photo. She’s leading him and they’re holding hands and she looks back and gazes into his eyes. She’s wearing black pants, leather boots, and a long navy sweater with a red shirt under it. He’s wearing a leather jacket, grey shirt, blue pants, and casual green leather sneakers. There’s stark contrast between the rocky and green mossy area they’re walking on and the hill behind them which has a white, almost-snowy overlay. The hillside is half covered in snow.

Scan of a photo of adults and two kids in a fun portrait. They’re all wearing winter coats. The 
adults are wearing winter hats. On the left is a young, beautiful, brunette woman smiling big, wearing a light brown winter hat with a leather patch. A cute little girl is to her right, they’re all close together, wearing a pink puffy jacket with a white bow in her dirty blonde hair. Next to the girl is a man wearing a blue winter hat and a navy puff jacket, his tongue slightly sticking out and his beard a brown-red. To the man’s right is a boy, a few years older than the girl, wearing a red puffy jacket and a flannel under it, his tongue fully out and his eyes wide. They’re all having a blast.

Two grandparents and they’re grandkids. The grandfather is sitting on a brown, floral lounge chair with the two kids on his lap. The little girl is on his left, as if she’s trying to escape, wearing a red dress and white tights and red bow in her hair. The boy is wearing a red flannel. The grandmother leans into the photo with her hand on the right side of the chair. The grandfather is wearing blue jeans and a red flannel shirt and glasses with a thick black rim. Behind them is a cream colored living room door and to its right is a window. It appears to be around the holidays as there are two sets of blue, ceramic angels sitting on the window as well as a white, wood star. Through the window outside it’s dark outside and there’s a few white holiday lights illuminating a tree. There’s also a tropical fern just to the right of the image and a mirror and what appears to be the photographer in it.

Two happy dog owners and their black lab, all three of them with their tongues out. The happy dog is sandwiched between the two owners, his long tongue mostly pink with a couple black spots. On the left is a man with a short, red beard wearing a NASA baseball cap and large sunglasses; a black frame with magenta lenses. He’s wearing a t-shirt and a backpack. The woman on the right is wearing similar glasses except with a blue frame and light blue lenses. Her shirt is multi-colored lines with a slight turtleneck. Her backpack is a light blue. Her hair is tied back with a purple head wrap. The man’s hand is on the dog’s chest, near a brown leather collar and grey tick collar. The three of them are standing in what appears to be a forest and oh-so-happy.

An old man sitting in a brown plastic adirondack chair, on a makeshift deck with green shrubbery behind him. There’s an identical empty adirondack chair behind him with brown flip flops sitting at its base. The old man is wearing a green, baggy striped shirt and baggy slacks. His socks are also long and slightly baggy. He’s wearing a watch of some kind, glasses with a gold frame, and a faded baseball hat. He’s wearing modern athletic running shoes and they’re blue and yellow. A walking cane leans on the chair. He’s smiling and happy to be there.

A happy black lab. He’s sitting on a rocky beach. The dog is wearing a red collar as well as a grey tick collar below it. He’s also wearing a black and silver body harness. His tongue sticks way out and hangs to the right towards the water. He has big floppy ears. His right eye is pointed directly at the camera, obediently looking at his owner and looking great for the camera. Behind him is lucious grass growing on the edge of the beach. The ocean is in the distance and it’s a calm, low tide.

A regal red cardinal sitting on a branch. It’s a male cardinal, as female cardinals are a different color. He has handsome, black feathers around his face and a bright orange, triangular beak. He has almost a backward mohawk. His eye is a black, oblong and he’s facing with the right side of his body to the camera. His tail sticks straight backwards. Only the bird and branch are visible in the photo, all else is blurred out.

Two Icelandic puffin birds. The bird on the right is most visible. He’s facing to the left. The bird on the left side of the photo is facing right, but he’s tucked down sitting on the ground and looking out towards the ocean in the distance. The photographer is shooting through green and tan grass. The right side bird has a large, orange, yellow, and black beak and a cute whie and black face. His head is mostly black feathers, which wrap around to his back. His chest is white. The birds are unique looking, almost like penguins.

Office Depot / OfficeMax Online envelopes

When you order photos from Office Depot / OfficeMax Online, here's what you can
expect the envelope to look like.

Office Depot shipped 10 4x6 prints to us in a massive box. The box was far too large for small 4x6 prints and a waste of packaging. The cost was also $9.95 which was by far the highest in our tests.

A brown announcement envelope-shaped box is positioned vertically and held in place by a hand. There is a slant purple stamp with some digits near the top-right of the box. There is a slanted shipping label stuck in at the center. The top left corner has the return address, it reads, “OFFICE DEPOT, 15514387403, 2200 OLD GERMANTOWN RD, DELRAY FL 33445.” The right side of the label has text that mentions the size of the box, “1 LBS” and some text that reads: “1 OF 1.” Under the size and the serial number is some tiny illegible text. At the center of the label, the text begins with “SHIP TO” followed by a blurred shipping address. Below, are more blur contents which are presumably the tracking barcode and shipping number. There is some text below the tracking number that says “BILLING: 3RD PARTY.” Some probably irrelevant text printed across. The bottom left corner contains reference numbers in tiny text. All text on the label is printed in black ink. Envelope sitting on wood table top.
A brown announcement envelope-shaped box with serrated edges at the corners—and also at the corners of the flap—is vertically positioned with its flap on the left. There are three holes in the box. Two rectangular holes at the top and the bottom, a tiny square in the center where the flap closes on the box. The content in the box is visible through these holes. The hole on top and the one in the center show something brown. The hole in the bottom shows a black barcode on a white surface with text at each side, it seems to be the back of a book. A hand holds the box in place on a wooden surface. Envelope sitting on wood table top. ))
A hand holds up a brown box about 3” high on its side. The side facing the camera shows the edges are serrated all around with two rectangular holes at the bottom, about 5 inches apart. The side facing up has a barcode printed in black, the dimensions of the box are printed are the bottom of the barcode. It reads, “P018793-02, 10x14-7/16 x 2-3/8.” Envelope sitting on wood table top.
