This week’s Shark Tank features an innovative new company called Flag — which allows you to get up to 20 prints of your photographs a month for free.

The prints are made to a high-quality professional standard and can be printed in different shapes like circles and triangles.

The company is able to make them free by selling targeted adverts which appear on the reverse of the photograph, next to a caption.

You have to buy the app ($9.99), but everything else is free — including all postage and packaging costs. If you want more than 20 photos a month, you can pay for more.

The company ran a successful Kickstarter campaign back in 2014 which raised $169,187 of their $100,000 goal — and business partners Savannah Cowley and Samuel Agboola went on Shark Tank looking for investment to expand.

Advertisers can sign up to have their ads on the back of people’s photos on the company’s website, with a deal on as Shark Tank goes to air.

The ads can be targeted by things like zipcode, age, and other demographics. Each ad only appears once in each pack of prints ordered.

The app is currently available on the App Store.

Shark Tank airs Fridays at 9/8c on ABC.
