    not sure about online places, mpix will do 20´x30´, you could try kinkos or a local print shop with a large format roll printer.

    They will do a 30x60 print. it will add a white "border" to the top and bottom, you'll just have to cut it off.

    agreed. I've done a bunch of stuff through Elco and it's turned out great. Usually have it in 4 or 5 days.

    I got a couple done by them and they came out much darker than I expected. Is that cause of the matte format? The quality was great but the darkness killed me.

    Not with those expensive calibration tools. I've tried those "can you see the box in the box" color tests and I could see all the shades and everything. This screen is actually quite good (HP DV8000 laptop), I even upgraded the monitor when I ordered it but for some reason when I ordered them large they came out dark (4X6 and 5X7's of the same print came out fine).

    I just ordered a couple 20x30's from elco. Hopefully I am as happy as everyone else has been with them.

    Do you know of any good places online to get decent 20x30 frames? None of the stores in my area have them except walmart, and they're really shitty frames. I had one made at Hobby Lobby, but I don't really want to spend close to $200 on a frame again. :wtc:

    That's a good question. These are the first prints I've ever had done, so I'm new to the frame game as well. I've been trying to find some on the web and haven't really found any in the sub $50 range that I really like.

    I got one at Michael's for around $40. It's just a simple black frame (20X30).

    I also can vouch for Elco's quality... Had (2) 20x30 prints done by them and framed them for my parents for Christmas. I spent twice as much on the frames as I did for the prints :o
