I use Shutterfly, but you can use Walgreens, too.

Just a word of caution, Walgreens and many others will ask for the document that grants you rights to the images.  I know we had our prints done at Walgreens and the first time we had to bring in the contract from photographer indicating that full rights belonged to us.  Super silly, but at least they are being smart about it!

I have used snapfish.com before, they are able to blow things up beautifully, I have had several 14″x20″ pictures printed by them and even a few poster panoramas.

In Canada we have Black’s that does amazing work. Anywhere that develops pictures outside of a big-box store should do a great job and have a variety of options.

If you can get an account WHCC. If not, I know a lot of photographers recommend mpix (though I am not a fan)

I think it really depends on what you want. Do you want canvas prints, or just regular print? I have had success with regular prints from CVS Walmart, Walgreens, Snapfish, and Shutterfly. I got my canvas from canvasondemand.com and they were amazing to work with. For nice frames, watch for Michael’s coupons and/or when they have frames on sale (which happens frequently)

I’d use AdoramaPix.com or Mpix.com for better quality prints

For high quality I think you need to go to smugmug or something like that don’t you?  There’s a huge difference in quality between the shots I got developed from Snapfish and those from my photographers’ website, which used smugmug, but there were others she recommended (can’t remember which ones).  I got small prints from snapfish, but for larger prints I used smugmug.

@EleanorRigby:  I’m not positive, but I thought SmugMug is a paid site that pros use to share & sell their work to customers – I’m pretty sure you have to pay for an account? 

I do agree with going with a higher-quality printing service than Walgreens, etc.  I have been thrilled with everything I’ve had printed by AdoramaPix, which was recommended to me by a professional photographer.  I’ve also heard that Mpix has comparable quality.
