Ask DN: Best online printing service?

4 years ago from , UI/UX

I'm looking to get some photos printed from a recent trip abroad. Those who don't print their own stuff, who do you use?

Also, frames? Something with minimal edges? I've used ikea's frames but the weight of the frame itself seems to bend the wood after time.

    Second this. I'm leaning towards these Square Photo Prints from Artifact Uprising, but I'd like to hear feedback from others too.

    I use Richard Photo Lab's no-color correction prints and use IKEA frames. I find the ikea frames to be cheap and beautiful. Especially the square 20x20 ones. The only downside to doing the no-color correction prints is that you have to cut them yourself and size them to their "default" paper sizes. So if your print is really 19.75" x 19.75" you have to size your image in Photoshop at 300dpi with the canvas size being 20" x 20" — which is defined by the size of their paper. I've had quite a few photography exhibitions and pretty much done this every time.

    The frame in the video at my website are done this way: http://nathanielperales.com

    I heard MPIX is solid. Haven't tried them yet, but plan to this week.

      Mpix is pretty good. Fast and reasonably priced. I printed some medium format images (16x24) and the quality was great. Just remember to uncheck their "automatic color correction" option on checkout if your photos are already edited.

    Recently mounted some photos on Plywerk bamboo panels and really like how they look on the wall. Pricey, but definitely minimal if that is what you're looking for. I have not used their printing services, only have experience mounting my own prints on their panels

    I recommend http://www.socialprintstudio.com/. Their quality is pretty good and they have a decent variety of formats and sizes
