Is Smilebox really free?

Liat Badichi -

Smilebox is available for all to enjoy at no charge

There is no fee to simply have a Smilebox account.

With a basic free account, you have access to all of the features below:

  • Choose any of our basic free designs
  • Personalize your one-of-a-kind creation
  • Share via Facebook, blog or email
  • Get professional prints delivered to your door

You may send and share as many creations as you would like. Free creations will appear slightly smaller during playback (when viewed by you or your recipients), as our basic designs are accompanied by third-party ads. To learn more about our home-delivery printing service, please see our article: Print and deliver to Home (PASH) or Smilebox Doorstep Direct Q&A

If you'd like to use Smilebox at absolutely no charge, there are two easy ways to identify free designs:

While browsing the Design Catalog, you can pick free designs by selecting those that are not labelled Premium (premium designs require a paid Club Smilebox subscription).

You can also quickly search our catalogue for free designs by entering Free in the search bar (see below).



Please let us know if we can provide any other details about how to enjoy Smilebox at no cost to you. We'd love to help you discover Smilebox as a fun, free way to share your photos and celebrate the moments they capture.
