Costco is indeed good price-wise and has a good reputation for quality, but has a yearly membership fee. In general, if you're not already a member for other things and, if you don't have frequent printing needs, it may not be worth the membership fee.

Seriously? There's actually people without a Costco membership? lol

I would like to see a Costco wrap. I keep reading where people talk highly about there prints but have never seen one. We don't have Costco were I live. I understand they have ICC profiles as well.

I have seen wraps from several other online sources and was not impressed.

Costco has been around here for a lot of years, but I've never been a member. I've had friends who were members, in fact I've even been in with them (friends) for a couple shopping trips, but I just never saw a membership as worth the money and the time going there as opposed to the decent gocery/department stores that were nearby.

But, the one nearest to me did agree once to let me in and to the photo area and have some test prints made so I could evaluate their quality/service, and yes I was happy with their quality, and I checked out all their offerings, but since I still wouldn't likely use them for much I haven't bought in. However, and "extended family" member may go in with me if we can get two cards...so I dunno...

Are you going to make a wrap? If so, you might try printing your first image 1/8" to 1/4" longer than you need as you will likely experience shrinkage on the long dimension after coating. Once you determine how much shrinkage you get, it will remain pretty constant for images the same length. A good idea is make your first print using an image that doesn't require exact edge matching on the wrap. If I made that clear as mud, pm me and I will email you an image as an example.

Yes, I'll be attempting my first wrap. The sample kit from Breathing Color is on its way, cant wait!

Mainly I hope to offer this as an insta-wall piece product to my clients as opposed to having prints framed. I haven't done my math but I think having to save them the cost and hassle of framing a traditional print would be appealing.

Very cool. Will be interested in hearing about it.
