I vote Matte – but you should make this a poll so people can actually vote!

You will want to go with matte.  Glossy shows finger prints and is hard to keep shiny.  Just my opinion.  I do photography on the side and never use glossy for prints I pretty much refuse.  I guess this is a stong opinion sorry about that do what you want most and like the look of.  I do like Shutterfly’s photos they turn out well.  Ritz camera does a good also there are other places online that can be good but those are the two I have used most.

I also vote matte… I don’t love the glossy/glare look. Very true about finger prints too.

I also agree, matte is the way to go. Glossy just ends up with fingerprints everywhere, then they look hazy when you try to wipe the fingerprints off. As for where else to get photos printed, I know Shutterfly and Snapfish both do really good jobs. I’ve also printed photos at Costco before and those turned out good too.

I concur, matte is the best. Personally I think the colors as well as the picture itself looks prettier in matte vs. glossy.
