I have used Adorama for over a year and I am very satisfied.

I got the best results when I said on the order not to touch my processing.

Fast, professional, and amazing price.

I had a handful of enlargements printed by Mpix and was thoroughly satisfied with the results. Like Dennis, I specified that I did not want them to make any adjustments to the images.

Can't go wrong with either of the above suggested. I use to use Adorama and printed over a 1,000 prints with them when I used them. I on the other hand used color correction, only had one print come back "weird". Though I DO NOT use a calibrated monitor and always use a color correction option with any pro lab that I use as most of the people that work the printers have been printing longer than I have been alive and I KNOW I will get something I am happy with.

If you have a calibrated monitor or the correct color profiles then you should be good to go.


Also check out Richmond Pro lab, I have mixed feelings on this lab but I have not seen anyone else cheaper that still offers truly "pro" quality prints.

I've had inconsistent results with Mpix...same image but different orders and the results were different. I have stopped using them; I've found Sam's Club to be much better.

I have never been let down by MPIX.
Inexpensive prints, metallic finishes (when desired), and ridiculously fast.

Metallics are awesome!

Bay Photo myself and I hear Costco uses high end pro photo equipment so I would try Costco if I lived by one.

What photo(s) did you print on metallic? Some simply do not look that great as metallic prints and certain photos work out better. Photos with deep deep saturation look really great (especially with lots of reds or greens).

Id say that 50% of the print orders that our clients make are done on metallic paper, no complaints so far.
