Sorry if this has been covered already in great detail...I did a quick forum search for some keywords and didn't find anything. However, with quite a few of you shooting digital, I'm curious, where are you guys going to have your prints done? I'm ideally looking for someplace that accepts them online and will ship to an address that I specify. None of the local shops around me provide this service, at least not on a professional level.

Thanks for any feedback you might have!

We answer this question often -- but it's an important question as peopel go from film to digital.

I've been producing prints for delivery to clients from EZ Prints

There are quick, cheap, and the package they ship has no invoice information in it -- so you can order the prints sent directly to the client without letting them know how little you paid! I think they also have a "pro" side of their site where you can set up purchasing by the client directly from them at your prices. I've not yet explored that.

EZ-Prints has a couple of products that I haven't been able to find on other sites, like Ofoto, Shuttefly, Snapfish or PictureTrail, namely 11x14 prints larger on GLOSSY paper.

Only ofoto offers prints larger than 8x10 and those are on a luster paper. Yuck.

EZPrints also does 8x12 which is good.

HOWEVER, I have to wonder about the company when they can't even spell Fuji correctly. Can these people read? It makes me doubt their competence.

Stoopid.

One of the things to watch for -- if you download their tool for doing all of the ordering on your PC and then uploading it, the tool doesn' t offer all the products! I upload the images to the site and just order the prints off the site.

I typically print 10x15 glossy for much of my submission and client work. That frames out to 16x20 -- some of the shows have a 16x20 limit and lots of clients don't want anything bigger. Of course you have the occasional order for 40x60....

After dropping a note to their customer support, with a cc to the CEO, they fixed the spelling of Fuji on their web site.

Since they managed to do that pretty quickly, I decided maybe they could operate a Frontier. So I sent them an order yesterday afternoon.

It's been printed. I'll be expecting it 3 days after it ships. We shall see if I truly can get a 20x30 out of my S2.

I know i'm reviving a really old thread here but what about clubphoto.com? They seem pretty cheap too.
