Print them at Black River Imaging or White House Custom Color. They are printers that professionals (including myself!) use and you don’t need to be a professional to use them!

Contact your local photography store; the employees will probably be photographers and they’ll point you in the right direction. The photography store we go to actually offers high quality printing services.

I keep hearing good things about the quality of Adorama from the hive, and being an online company they might be cheaper.

I work at a grocery store that has a photography department and uses Kodak machines, and I printed mine there, which are just as good of quality and are reasonably priced. I guess I’m just used to the quality of those photos, so they may or may not be as good as a professional shop, but to me they look just as good.

I print single photos on my home/office printer. It is an HP PhotoSmart All-in-One, and it does an awesome job. I did try out AdoramaPix for our photo guest book. You can see it here, and I received the book yesterday. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. If, after the wedding, I have a ton of pictures that I want to print out, I would definately use them. I know for sure that I will be putting together a wedding album, after we get married. The quality and service is impeccable.

adorama.com and mpix.com are both high quality printers that pros use. Just make sure to opt out of color correction for our pro photos!

I second adorama and mpix.

pleaaaase do not print at wal-mart or any drug/super store. there are plenty of inexpensive photolabs that are available locally and via the internet. do not disrespect your photographers hard work by printing them as low of quality that walmart & drugstores use.

I agree with not using walmart, target, or a drugstore. It really makes a big difference. I recommend using mpix.com for sure!!

Ask your photographer.    When my clients buy the CD of photos only ( to save costs by doing own printing and album ) ,     they have the option of going to the same place I go to print ( a pro lab which Always produces good results ).    They can also go a step down to somewhere like Inkleys ( which *usually* gets good results ).      

Get your enlargements done at a PRO place only.  You’ll see a difference and the ink / paper quality will keep the prints looking good longer !
