Hi all,

I was wondering if any of you had any experience getting prints made online on any of the higher-end paper options. I'm looking to experiment with the various lightjet-printed papers, particularly the "pearl" and "B&W-optimized" varieties. Forgive my ignorance on the matter...I really don't know much about traditional photo paper, as came to photography well into the digital age. I have, however, always found well-done film prints (particularly silver halide) to be light-years ahead of anything done with a digital shot and an inkjet printer. And now that selling an occasional print seems like a very real possibility, I'd really like to give my shots a better representation than *cough* Costco *cough.* Aw hell, who am I kidding...I'm not embarrassed about getting Costco prints...they're ridiculously cheap and not altogether crappy. Still, on to bigger and better things!

So far I've found a few places: Mpix seems to be a popular one, and there are a couple more that are prohibitively expensive. This site: www.fromexprolab.com (external link) is quite cheap, but seems a bit questionable.

Anyway, any opinions and/or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

I just got a set of Fuji Pearl prints 12x12 and larger from Fromex and they could not possibly be better. They absolutely stunning and perfectly represent the file. This was without color correction. Fromex also delivered them phenom pronto. I live on the east coast and with their standard shipping got them two days after ordering. I don't know how Fromex can produce these gorgeous prints at such a low cost, but believe me you won't be disappointed. The packing was perfect also.

I looked into Fromex after reading your post, so can't thank you enough for this tip.

Hope it works out as well for you as it did for me,

Tana
