    I just used MPIX for the first time and got my prints today...all I can say is WOWWWEEE they look absolutely beautiful! I have an account with SMUGMUG and MPIX still looks better.:eek: 

    I ordered the baseball magazine covers, and buttons...great quality. I'm so impressed.
     
  2. My limited experience with them has been fantastic as well.

    Does anyone know what kind of printer Mpix uses for their output??
     
  6. MPIX is good, but has limited sizes. I've been using Meridian Pro and they are excellent and priced about the same as MPIX. They offer more finishing services than MPIX. http://www.meridianpro.com/
     
  7. I'm with you, Seneca. I ordered a B&W on the metallic paper, and was floored by how good it looked. The parents of the 2 year old the picture was of were also more than pleased. I have my second picture coming this week, also on metallic, I'll let you know if that one turned out as well.

    Mpix is the only service I use. Everytime, I am simply amazed at how the prints look. Color balance, saturation, and contrast is perfect everytime!
     
  9. Yes, there seems to be several good reputable pro labs that are going to fight it out on pricing -- and we’re the ones that benefit.

    MPIX is Millers. As I understand it -- got this from a Millers employee, not saying who ;)  -- it’s the same people, same equipment, same quality, same everything, they just limited the print sizes when they went out to the net and opened their lab to everyone, including amateurs. Hard to imagine some still paying the Millers price. I guess to stroke their pro egos. And I’ve seen them argue on various forums that they’re gettin’ a different level of service -- right.

    I agree with hotrod4x5, MeridianPro.com is another excellent pro lab with some pretty unbelievable prices. I’ve had good success with both of these labs. I’m using them both, but leaning toward Meridianpro for lots of my high end work.

    I went to their website, and signed up...seems a little difficult to get started. I was a little confused. Well that was after 2 glasses of wine...I better start again tomorrow.

    I just got 35 16x24" prints and 1 20x30" print delivered today from mpix done on the metallic paper, and all I have to say is WOW. Almost all of the prints were 3d renderings and pen drawings, but the color and finish is fantastic. The shipping for 36 large prints was only $9 overnight too. I can't wait to get some metallic prints done for the new pad.
     
  12. I've never personally used Mpix (Because they are state side) But Metallic Ink's look absolutely fantastic, CameraCanada's "prolab" has Metallic Inks on their Epson eLustre Paper, Which is probably very similar to what Mpix does.
    I've seen skin tones look a little flattened by it (I accidently printed a 12x18 of a group portrait, instead of an Infrared tree!), But for anything high contrast or saturation they simply look amazing!
     
  13. I used mpix for three years, always great products and service.

    I ordered the same print from White House Custom Color WHCC and mpix to compare. They looked the same - mpix was less money and arrived sooner.
     
  14. I ordered a couple lenses in a similar condition, woke up, checked email and saw what I did. Wasn't sure, but remembered ordering something.

    That was very dangerous, but I love the lenses.

    I now avoid B&H after any drinks. LOL

    Awesome!!!!!!!!! I had planned on ordering from mpix for the first time this week! I'm so glad to hear the positive feedback!
     
  16. Meridian uses the PROES ordering system. It can take a little time to learn it, but it works well.
