Passport Photos

Can I email you a photo for my passport?

No.  The Canadian government requires that your photo for passport be printed from an original file taken by a professional photographer.  See here for Canadian government regulations for passport photos – http://passport.gc.ca/info/photos.aspx?lang=eng.

How much are passport pictures?

We charge $8.95 plus tax for a set of 2 passport pictures.  This is our minimum charge for ID photos of any size.

We are able to print as many ID photos as you like, prices are as follows (all plus tax):

  • set of 2 – $8.95
  • set of 3 – $12.99
  • set of 4 – $15.99
  • set of 6 – $19.99
  • sets of 8 or more – please ask

We do not discount passport/ID photos for groups, nor do we charge extra for children.

Do you take children’s passport photos?

Yes we do. We take photos for infants all the way up!  Cost is the same as adults – $8.95 plus tax for a set of 2 prints.  With kids, there are a few extra things to consider, check out our child & youth passport page for more information.
