Does anyone ever write a print release giving permission to only a certain lab or labs? The reason I don't like digital files is because I cringe at the thought of them being printed at snapfish or other labs with bad quality. I was thinking about a limited release with permission to only certain labs. Can I do this?

I don't see how you can enforce it if someone like WalMart (terrible) prints it anyway?
I only give prepared (sized & sharpened) digital files to a few people that I trust & tell them where they'll get the best print.

So far every single client has requested a cd of images. I don't have that in my product guide, but now I'm trying to think of a way I can because clearly that is what customers want.

Yeah, I agree that there are no permission enforcements. Any online upload printer lab website will never ask for a print release. I guess that's why some photographers only show photos in the studio and offer prints only.
