    I want to get a few of my shots framed. I'll do the framing myself, I just want the pictures to be good quality. I suppose foamcore mounting would be in order as well.

    Is there a good company online that will turn out better pics than Kinko's or the like?

    I dunno who was used for the contest winning prints, but my print was freaking BEAUTIFUL!

    I think it was elco. But i'm not sure.

    I keep hearing people talking about Kinko's doing their printing. Do they do a good job or something? I wouldn't be able to believe it if so.

    I need large prints too, and since mpix only goes up to 20x30, and doesn't do any custom sizing, I need to look elsewhere.

    I have a pic I need to print at 60" x 25"

    El Co has decent pricing, might give them a try.

    Anyone wanna upload some samples that were printed by them?

    Should I go with the foamcore mounting? Is it worth it? They charge $9.50 to mount on 3/16" foamcore.
