My professional photos came in recently. They gave me digital copies on cd’s and all rights, no prints. I want to print out some to send with my thank-you notes (I know I’m kinda late on sending these)….but I’m not sure where I should get the prints. I was thinking maybe just doing easy fast printing for those I will include with the thank you’s–maybe like walgreens or walmart since I can get those in an hour and get started on writing the thank-yous this weekend.
But for my enlargements and for prints to put in my album, is there somewhere anyone has used that was especially good? Shutterfly?? Thanks!

Bump! I’m wondering where to go, too. My pro photos came in on Wednesday (YEAH!), just on Pictage for now. Soon my photographers will give me a DVD with all the images, and I really have no idea where to go to print them. I may order my larger prints from Pictage – I know from ordering my engagement photos that they make some pretty good prints. But as far as the 500 4×6 prints I’ll probably want…who is best?

I recently printed all 200 of my e-pics from Snapfish. They have some good promotions sometimes and their matte prints look great in my album.

Mpix is where I tell all my clients to go if they plan on printing themselves.

I’ve had good luck with Photoworks. I’ve printed several mini albums there, and some photos.

Please don’t use Walgreens. If you can’t afford the pro prints, even MPix or Adorama.com will still be much better.

not shutterfly, snapfish, target, walmart, or walgreens. go to a professional photo lab if you actually want your enlargements to look nice! ritz maybe? I dont know where, but just don’t go to those 1 hour photo places or cheap online sites for enlargements.

I’m actually a big fan of costco when I have something personal I want to print and don’t want to pay my labs minimum or shipping. You can upload to their site and pick it up in an hour or so. They are one of the only chains that actually train their technicians and calibrate their printers.
If you want to go online I second the mpix.com or adorama.com.

Never heard of mpix.com or adorama.com – I’ll definitely check them out to print my photos!

adorama.com is where I always take mine. They are MUCH better quality, you have a better selection of paper finishes, their color balance is WAY better…also, don’t forget to uncheck the “color correction” bos when ordering prints. That is handy when you have untouched point and shoot pics, but tour wedding photographer put a lot of time into post processing, and you don’t want to undo that.
