p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Big prints


So I've just got a new toy (Nikon D800) and I'm going to recreate some of my best photos I've taken locally. I want to print them (not sure how big yet, 30, maybe 40"). My question is do you print online? If so where? Or does anybody in the South Florida area know a local place that will do it? I know Walgreens does poster sized stuff, but I doubt they do quality prints.

For large quality prints I use West Coast Imaging/Aspen Creek (landscape), they're a little pricey on somethings but Aspen Creek runs specials all the time, customer service is second to none. The guys up there take care of their clients. I printed a 24x36(shot with a D800) Lifestyle portrait through WHCC and it was awesome, could stand nose to print and it was simply amazing. I've had metal prints up to 24x36 done through Bayphoto and have been happy with the quality and service.

I'll have to look into them, thanks

White House Custom Color is used by several quality-conscious members of our camera club.

I have another question as to printing. Obviously the color on my calibrated monitor looks good. Are there any services that will send you a color sheet or something of the sort to match their color profiles?

Yes. I believe WHCC requires it.

EColor is the place to go. They do a great job of large prints and use real Fuji paper as well as injet and their price is right.

WHCC actually gives you a few 8x10 samples of your images to a compare against your monitor when you create an account.

Ben,

I've used WHCC and they are very good. However, I would also give a nod to Costco. I've done a 30x40 print but a 48 inch canvas. I was pretty impressed with the quality and price. WHCC has more of a selection of material on which to print. Good luck.

I've used Costco a handful of times for various canvas prints (12x16 up to 26x32) and have been pleased with the results. But I'm definitely not exactly an experienced judge of the quality compared to most around here.
