So where does everyone get there work printed? I guess I should narrow this to companies that work in/with USA and non-professional. I know for basic prints I can do something like Walmart but what if I want to get a nice large print to frame from some of my images, who do you go through/recommend?

My wife and her sister had some pics done by a pro and I heard him say the name of the company he uses so and showed us some examples of large format prints so I went to check it out and you have to be a professional to use their site.

Hi mike, you can create and print photo products from Flickr and the prices are pretty reasonable. Actually better than the high street..

I tend to use Mpix.com. Also, for more suggestions, there's a sub-board dedicated to printers and online printing.

Hi Hiringmike,

I do print with some frequency and I find that CostCo's 18X12 inch color prints to be very close to what I see on my monitor. They are $2.99 a pop and $3.99 for same day processing.

Cheers :-)

Thanks all. Yeah, sorry I missed the online printing forum, I'll move over there. theorigamist, I was looking at mpix.com trying to figure how to do custom sizes.
