    Do any of the online providers do a good job with b&w prints, something you could hang on the wall?

    I printed a macro shot of a silver dollar, in B&W, at Costco and it came out pretty well.
    If you pick it up in-store, you don't have to buy it if it doesn't come out well.

    Or do you want something fancier, such as printing on metal?

    No, nothing fancy, I just want some colder tone prints.

    Mpix Pro you suppose to be a professional photographer to use their service, but it's fairly easy to get an account with them. You can use their Mpix service but it is actually a bit more expensive and does not offer all the same printing services.

    Adoramapix is good and have frequent sales on 16x20 for $5.99, 14x11 $1.99 8x10 $.99...they have a nice choice of papers too. Mpix is good as well.

    Snapfish is what I use. They are linked with Flickr so it is a one step thing.

    You could also save and then go to a local print/ photo shop. They can easily print something up for you.

    LOL!! WHAT local shop? My closest photo store is well over 30 miles from me. Now of days I can pay for the print with what I pay for gas and tolls.

    also, consider canvas prints. Don't have to frame them, easy to hang and look great. I've used Simplycavas with good results (must use a good coupon...everyday pricing is high). I've been meaning to try GProprints. Their prices are good and reviews are good. Like $28 for 16x20.

    Adorama has reasonable pricing and lots of paper options. I don't think you'd be disappointed.

    The consumer level services (snapfish, shutterfly, etc) are good for batches of small prints, but I don't think they do "pro" stuff well.

    I have an account with WHCC that I use, but it is like Mpix and I had to open a "pro" account. My wife did the account back when we shot a wedding as a favor and I've just kept using it for personal prints ever since.

    Well, that sucks. There are numerous printing services around me. I doubt that there is not one in your town as well. One of the ones also develops my film :bowdown:
