Where are you adblink?
For everyday personal prints you could try Blacks, Future Shop, any Foto Source dealer (www.fotosource.com
For fast multiple print copies for grandparents I'll often use my local Walmart. In the beginning I wasn't happen as there was often a colour cast but they have consistently been putting out good quality prints for the last 12 or so months. I even recently sent in a couple of prints to my local Fortinos since I was going to be getting groceries anyway and they looked good.
Any of my hired work goes to the pro lab as that's what my business model is based on. I'd consider trying somewhere less expensive but consistency is my concern and it costs less to get the print printed right the first time than have to reprint, plus I like the Kodak Endura paper. Yes they are $1.05 for colour corrected, $0.44 for uncorrected. Their price becomes more in line as the size goes up and they are very reasonable on gallery wrapped canvases.
I didn't notice that those prices I was looking at was colour corrected. Wouldnt colour corrected just throw the PP work you did out the window?
Myself and a relative of mine did a little experiment. She took 10 pictures from her trip to New Zealand and got all 10 of them printed at Futureshop, Henry's and Fortinos. Then she laid them out on the table for me. Without me knowing what store they were from, I picked which set turn out the best, and oddly enough it was Fortinos. I was quite surprised.
I haven't had a chance to try Blacks yet, but at almost double the cost of the last three, I'd hope they are alot better
//edit just checked out fotosource like you mentioned, and they too are $0.39. Just noticed that if you print 100+ it drops to $0.27, which is not bad. Any idea which one is better between blacks or foto source? (in your opinion of course)
