and while we're at it...

i need advice on printing photos. what places/sites have you all used? has anyone had a bad experience? have you done any large prints? (jess, you must comment on this one.)
can you believe that i have not yet printed ANY digital photos yet?! i know, i know it's ridiculous, but i just haven't gotten around to it yet.
procrastinators unite! tomorrow. (right, ginny?)

which leads me to another subject... i'm going to be changing the title and look of this little blog. so for those of you who don't like change, just prepare yourself.
i'm sure all 6 of you are dying with anticipation!

no advice for you. i've had my camera since may 2006 and have only developed 2 prints! so sad.

oh fun! Can't wait to see how you change things...I'm sure your designing something super cool. I've thought about getting someone to design me a "cool" page, but I better make sure I stick with blogging first! Can't wait!
I'm not really into photography, I still get my pic developed at Wal-mart or Wolf/Ritz Camera. But, I do try to stay ahead and develop every month :)

Katie,
I use a company called white house custom color. www.whcc.com

you have to get an account with them, but wonderful, wonderful company- and so easy once you get set up. all of my clients have been very please.

hope that helps!

I used Club Photo when my camera printed the date on top of the picture. When I upgraded to my new camera, I switched to Shutterfly because they print (automatically) the date and file number on the back. The biggest I have printed is 16x20. The print turned out nicely but the framing and matting costs at the frame store were more than I bargained for so it is taped up on the wall for now - lovely. Shutterfly is pretty inexpensive (12cents a print) they have some easy to use editing tools (red eye reduction and cropping are my favorites) and they arrive in your mail.

Katie-MPIX.com hands down. My friend who is a wedding photographer in Boston uses them and they do a beautiful job and it is inexpensive and fast. You can choose different papers etc.

so glad you asked this question. i've been wondering myself. i don't feel like such a loser to know i'm not the only one who hasn't made any prints. but oh wait, this is my first child.....aren't first timers usually on top of this?

MPIX and Ritz Pix are my two choices....when I actually print something. I am excited about the unveiling of the new design.

by the way...I never print out photo.

I wish I could help in this department, but I can't. All my pics are on flash drives. ~huge sigh~

Can't wait to see the new 'look'. :)

I love looking through your photos. They capture the moment so wonderfully.

If I ever get around to uploading photos I use Flickr.com, so I use them for printing too. If you get them mailed, they can do digital sizing which is nice. If you want them faster, you can pick them up at target, often the same day. I've never done larger than standard prints, so I don't know about that.

i even procrastinated on commenting...what about that?

I use Costco online. Pricing is very good, the store offers a selection of sizes, gifts or photocards (for mailings). Options for delivery: pickup at a local store in 1 hour, ship most photos via USPS for free, or 2-day for an upgrade price. Their by mail service is provided by Snapfish (HP) and also have a discount program through MyPublisher where hardcover photobooks (like a year book printed) can be produced as gifts or even as a yearly family highlight album.
