I just signed up for both Millers and Mpix pro. Got my sample prints back along with catalogs & paper samples. I admit I am a bit overwhelmed. I don't even know what some of it means!
Proofs - Millers offers some great printed proof options. Do any of you still offer printed proofs? I usually do in person proofing on some sort of device...computer or tablet. However, as my bookings expand, the distance is expanding, too. I'd almost rather send them a proof set via mail than have them or myself drive 3 hours. I'm trying to offer a nice customer experience, more than they can get elsewhere. If I offer online proofs, am I defeating this purpose?
How does one wade through all the choices? How do you determine what to present to your clients? Do you have samples of all the products you offer?
And for color correction: Millers offers is or not, Mpix pro doesn't offer it, and Mpix makes it sound dangerous if you don't allow them to do it. What do you do and why? My sample from Millers are indistinguishable between the color corrected and not (at least to my eyes).
I know this is a lot of random questions. Any help is appreciated.
