Print Club (プリント倶楽部) is a arcade machine developed as a joint venture between Atlus and Sega and originally released in 1995.

For ¥300, a Print Club machine will take a of a user's face, allow them to customise the image by adding borders or extra graphics, and then print a sheet of 16 2.5x2cm stickers. While relatively basic in design, the concept proved to be extremely popular in Japan, particularly among young girls, to the point where it was considered a cultural phenomenon in the mid-to-late 1990s.

The term "purikura" (プリクラ), used in Japan to collectively describe these machines (both Sega and otherwise), is a shortened version of Atlus/Sega's "Print Club" trademark. Like much of the developed world, photo booths had existed in Japan prior to the release of Print Club, but none were specifically marketed as a form of entertainment.

This original Print Club machine is not thought to have been released outside of Japan.
