    Okay so for a while now, I've been thinking about finally printing some of my work and framing them so I thought we should start a thread on this:

    Where do you guys get your work printed from ($$ vs quality):

    Photos ..
    Canvas ..
    Business Cards ..
    Etc ..

    Haha, that's what I thought, but after hearing some guys here rave about the place, I gave em a try. Have had ~ 250 prints done by them between 8x10 and 20x30 and no issues yet.

    I've used adoramapix several times and think the quality is very good.

    MPIX is who I've used for a bunch of stuff, but I hopped on that 16x20 deal Adoramapix was having back a few months ago, and I was very pleased with the quality of those as well. So I'd recommend either. Millers is supposed to be the "Professional" side of MPIX, but you'd be hard pressed to see a difference in the prints and quality (supposedly service is better and they offer a few things MPIX doesn't). Bay Photo Lab is supposedly really great as is WHCC, but I've never used either so I can't speak for their quality or service.

    when I print at MPIX I allow them to do the color/contrast corrections. It always turns out GREAT ....and I can't be sure my monitor is perfectly calibrated with their systems anyways.

    I tried Adorama when they had their 4.99 sale on 16x20 prints. I was happy w/ the quality.
