They normally ship within 24 hours.
They're in Missouri so it shouldn't take long for them to get to Arkansas by US mail, or you can pop for the FedEx overnight shipping (I think it's around $10) to get them the day after they ship.

I had 40 4x6s done and they were in hand in about 2-3 days. I had email saying they were shipped within 24 hours.

The longest anything has taken to get to me from them is 4 days from when I place the order. If you give yourself 5-7 days, that should be more than enought time. As others mentioned, overnight for your whole order to ship is only $5 extra!

I am in Calif. and every order I have placed with Mpix has arrived in three days or less. Even a 20x30 canvas print was only three days from order to my doorstep.

I always just pay the extra $5 for next day. Fedex brings it around 10am for me. So I can go from placing the order at 6pm on a Monday to them sittting on my desk 10AM Tuesday. Of course most of my orders are huge, like upwards of $150, so $5 isn't a big deal.

I'm in Hawaii and all of the orders I've palced with them arrived in less than 48 hours, using the upgraded fedex shipping.

I recently used Mpix for the first time and I must say I was impressed. Took about 4 days and was extremely well packed and protected.

Yes, I love their packaging. I recently tried a local pro lab that came highly recommended, and I was disappointed when comparing them to Mpix. Most of that disappointment came with the way it was packaged. They had cardboard backer, but the photos where in flimsy plastic sleeves and wrapped to the board with something like cling wrap. It wasn't shrink wrap. I definitely would not have them drop ship anything to my customers packed like that. Mpix has nice backer, glassine sleeves for different sizes, and shrink wraps it all.

About 2 days to Portland, Oregon. I use them and Printroom.com for the majority of my prints.

so many mpix users I must ask, how's the coloring of the pics? Does anyone know if it's an automated system or if a person actually checks the prints to there printers specs?

I believe it is a person. I recently developed 40 corporate head shots through Mpix. I used Walgreens first because they are really close and the prints are 4x 6 so I figured what the heck. The image enhancement at Walgreens changed the color of the backdrop, blew out highlights and destroyed skin tones. One person was actually pink. Really pink. When I asked the tech at WG what the process was, they swore the pics were as printed and didn't see a problem with the prints.

Long story getting longer... I sent the batch to Mpix and the color is fantastic, there are subtle differences in the background that indicate individual adjustments, but the batch looks great. The highlights are great, skin tones are great and the backdrop is a similar hue in every shot.
