who do you use for prints?

know a couple of old threads, that briefly mentioned- but perhaps theres newer options?

what do you guys use for larger prints? something that offers canvas prints, or perhaps metallic prints?

I know of adoramapix, but there page doesnt seemed that detailed.

also 500px gives you an option to buy your print, as a canvas- but I dont, know how good that is?

any suggestions?

I've gotten a canvas from Shutterfly and it looks really nice. They also always offer discounts & specials, too. If you would rather go somewhere and get it done... Walmart, Walgreens, Staples, etc. does it, too.

I haven't seen one from mpix or adorama but I've seen other photographers online review them.

I actually want to try it but haven't decided it I want to print B&W or color





I've only seen them at my local camera shop.

99 out of 100 times I print my own stuff. If you get the specific color profiles from wherever it is you're going, you'll be fine. Mpix is great and they have their icc file on the website if I remember well. I'm ordering a metal print soon though so I'll let you know.

I like it because you can crop the photo however you like to make it a stock size. They are also also a couple blocks away from me so I dont have to wait for shipping.


Will probably be opening an e-shop soon. 500px is a huge rip off.

In this video Jared has a promo code you can use when ordering aluminum pics. You save about $20

Mpix, if something bright, I opt for the metallic paper.

Just used mpix for the first time yesterday for some 8x10 black and white prints. I got the super cool expensive paper and coating. Hoping they turn out well.
