We are about to delve into actually putting some of our digital prints on paper. Who do you use and why?

We are leaning toward Winkflash due to their flat rate shipping of .99 cents even though they are .12 cents per print.

Snapfish seems to get the highest ratings but the shipping is per every 5 prints which can add up quick.

My wife used Winkflash for our Xmas Cards. Worked out very well. I believe we got 40 large cards done for a fairly reasonable price.

Assuming you just had one pose done then? The one knock I have read about Winkflash is that pictures tend to be a little dark. How did yours turn out?

They came out really vibrant. It was a picture of our dogs with a background she created in Photoshop (lots of green with some white sprinkled in).

the quality isn't great, but if you just want something quick and cheap, use walgreens...usually done in less than hour, usually a store every 3 blocks...

If you have a membership, Sam's Club seems to score very well in terms of print quality. Even though their overall score in this particular comparison was less than Snapfish or Walgreens, they scored highest in print quality and were less expensive.

That's who I use, for those reasons. If I'm going to do some sort of 8X10 art photo, I'll take my printing elsewhere. I also manage all my pictures, currently, with Picasa (freeware). It makes it extremely easy to edit, upload, and send pictures to be printed. With Picasa, you can choose your commercial printer of choice, then you do an initial setup with the program. From then on, the upload to the commercial printer's site is one click.

My online photo album is about 100 times as active as it used to be since I switched to Picasa. It's so freaking convenient.

Walgreens is .19 cents per print though.
