I just did our first round of pictures through Mpix, and am viewing it as our trial run. For one photo I did two different finishes so we’ll be able to pick our favorite. It probably all comes down to personal preference- their prices aren’t bad, so you can experiment with a smaller print run of $10 or so.

I like the advice listed above.  I didn’t pick any special fancy pants paper and I like our prints from shutterfly and our selection of free prints from the photographer.

@Mrs. Wallaby:  Oh wow, that’s sad =(

We have our pictures on a DVD so we can print again thankfully.  I hope ours don’t fade though!

@Mrs. Wallaby:  I ordered the same photo using the different papers and coatings to see what I liked. The metalic paper is kinda neat looking in my opinion, but not everyone likes it. To my eye, I didn’t see a difference between mpix or adoramapix in quality, although personally I prefer the matte finish so I ended up going with mpix.

I haven’t ordered from them but generally speaking metallic paper looks best with black & whites… I’ve seen some awesome black & whites on metallic & matte and the metallic looks much more impressive, but like PP said it’s a personal preference. I generally dislike lustre as it reminds me of the 1hr. photo labs at walmart/costco

I print in matte finish and tell my clients to print matte. IMO just stay away from glossy! lol No fail is matte.

Metallic can be tricky, I mainly use that for some detail shots and landscape.

Mpix and Adorma are professional printing so dont worry about the quality. Snapfsh, Shutterfly, Walmart, Target or the like dont use.
