Who, in your mind, would be 'cheapo labs'? No sense having people suggest labs you won't do business with.
Well, I don't know any -- I'm looking for suggestions / recommendations from you guys who use one for prints.
I used a local lab for years and years (over twenty) -- but the owner passed away, and the folks that 'took over' don't know much about printing -- they turned it into a "public venue" like a Walmart or CVS, (cheapo labs??) whatever.
Plus, the lab decided to raise prices - like double. So, I'm looking for a photo lab that can process my images into silver-halide photographs -- I'll send files online and have them mail out to me the finish product. But I have no clue which labs are good and timely, and which are not. The web is like a crap-shoot, so many out there claiming excellence -- but who knows. I'd prefer not to test them all one-x-one.
I assume some of you pros on here will know a good one to try ... I don't do enough of this kind of work to justify the expense of personal equipment.
BTW: Usually one print at a time - for framing - but also, sometimes a production run of a hundred team photos too. It really varies ...
