Where Do You Print Your Pics?
« on: March 05, 2012, 04:33:24 PM »
Admin - feel free to move this, but I couldn't find a perfect fit under any of the categories.

I was thinking about making some nice prints and trying to sell them, but I'm not sure of the best place to get prints.  I'm thinking around 12x18 +- a few inches.

I can buy a bigger printer, but I don't want to do that, because I'm not sure it would make sense.  Currently, I have a Canon that does amazing 8.5x11's but like I said, I want something bigger.

Then, where do you guys/gals buy mats and frames?

Thanks.

+1 for adorama, i find they have great profesional service and provide among the best quality.  I also prefer them because both ups and usps are close enough to me i get them the next day many times.

I use White House Custom Color (WHCC).  Is mpix better?

For my high quality landscapes I use Weldon Color Lab, they are local Los Angeles.  I highly recommend Weldon if you are in the area.

Bay Photo Lab for me. Fast turnaround, high quality, low prices (in my opinion) and excellent customer service.

They definitely look cheaper than mpix.  I'm just curious with the difference in quality between the two.  Are you happy with your prints from them?

In the darkroom and the computer printing room next door. Love being a photo student!

+1 for Mpix..I have used them for several years and am always impressed by their service and product. I am lucky enough to be able to get regular mail from them as fast as next day FedEx and can order one day and have them within a day and a half.

At home on Epson R1900 photo printer.  I would recommend looking at getting an Epson R2000 or R2880 ( on sale I think).  It's cost effective if you get a non Epson refill ink system and use Inkpress photo paper; especially for 13x19, 11x17, and 11x14 sizes.

The heavy-duty epsons are great if you plan to use heavy papers (rag based, gold fibre silk, etc.).

For standard thickness paper, I found no no compelling reason to go with the high end printer (with proper calibration I've never seen the difference between 5 and 8 dyes/inks or whatever).

I use a stylus 1400. Does something like 13X19 native. I usually print two 8X10s on a single 11X17 sheet like so:
