I have been having prints made locally at Costco, WalMart, and Inkley's and thought that they were all about the same. Recently I found that many pro's use White House Custom Colour (WHCC) in St. Paul, MN. Their procedure to get signed up with them and to submit your first order is cumbersome at best but once you get by that hurdle they are outstanding. My prints are the same price as Costco and they have free shipping with minimum orders of $12.00. I made a test by getting an 8x10 printed at both places and the difference is dramatic. My customer was pretty impressed with WHCC as well. Now my prints match perfectly with my calibrated monitor. In the past I had been dissapointed with Shutterfly and EZ Prints but WHCC is fast, high quality and low cost. They use UPS 2 day air for shipping your prints (free) and so far my mine have been uploaded, printed and back in 5 days. As I mentioned the start up with them is cumbersome and includes filling out a questionair, submitting 5 8x10 test prints (free), obtaining Smart FTP software, and figuring out their upload procedure, but once done the rest is easy and pleasurable. In addition they have Glossy, Lustre, Metalic, Linen, Embassy, Pebble, and a spray lustre finish that you can order for your prints. They also have mounting services for a good price as well. I recommend them highly. http://www.whcc.com Disclaimer: I have no association with WHCC other than as a customer.
