I have a ton of pictures to print and I'd like to know your favorite place to get them?
Thanks

Right now snapfish is doing the 99 a penny each. I tried 200 but it didn't take so I'm doing another order. The coupon is NEWYEAR13. Shipping is about $7.00 for me.

I love Costco for mine. They are about 13 cents each. If you have over 500, the price drops down to 9 cents. They have 2 finishes, matt and glossy.

For a long time I printed my own. But I have to order my printer ink online and keep forgetting to do so. Because of that lately I have been ordering my prints from Walgreens. I have been very impressed. Right now they have a deal if you print 100 you get them for 9c each.

I am impatient so I rarely wait for pictures to ship. When I can wait, I like Shutterfly and Persnickety Prints. My local Walgreena does a terrible job (though in our last city I used them all the time) and I prefer matte prints so I use WalMart a lot.

I get mine done at Costco and generally love the results. They are really good about reprinting a picture on the spot if the colour comes out funky!

Online - Snapfish
Locally - Walgreens (There is a coupon code until tomorrow for .9 prints for a quantity over 100.)

Walgreens has more options and prints on better quality paper than Walmart. I like matte photos as well, but at least at my Walmart, they looked like they were printed on a non-photo printer.

It really goes to show how quality varies per local chain.

I would consider ordering a few prints from each place you might be interested and use some set criteria of your own to determine which place is right for you.

I either use my Epson Picturemate or print online at Shutterfly.

Persnickety Prints.

Great quality. Fast shipping. Good prices.

I love that they have an app (LifePics) so I can order prints right from my iPhone.

Online - Snapfish
Close to Home - Sam's Club

I edit my photos at home, so for both options I make sure I turn off their in-house color correction.
