Does anyone here use MPIX? I have been selling prints using simple print and mail with payment through PayPal. Now, I'd like to step things up a notch and offer a customer interface where they can purchase more items directly. I have heard good things about them and the pricing structure looks the best out of the ones I have looked at, especially interfacing with my existing website and server.

Anyone else have Mpix stories good or bad?

Mpix is the defacto printer for Zenfolio. I've personally never heard of any concerns from folks that have ordered prints via my Zenfolio site. The prints I've received from them are pretty good. A step up would be Mpix Pro or Miller's.

From what I hear, Mpix is one of the best out there. What really counts is when the printing company can return prints that are as close as possible to what you see on your monitor. You'll learn the difference between your monitor and your prints after a few orders.

There may be better labs out there or better processes (there has to be a reason MPIX-PRO exists), but I have personally never had a problem with a print I've received from MPIX. As the other poster said, Zenfolio's integration with MPIX ordering is top notch. Really fantastic.

I've been using MPIX Pro for about 6 months and my clients and I have all been very satisfied with the results. I mostly use their metallic paper for show prints and 'fine art' prints, and everyone loves the quality and clarity.

I use both Mpix and Mpix Pro and have never been able to tell a difference in quality (can anyone tell me if there actually is any difference?). Not only are the prints good, I think they're customer service is as good as it gets.

mpix/mpixpro/millers all use the same printers for their prints. You won't notice a difference. Where the difference comes in, is with color correction (non for mpixpro). I find better color correction with millers. Also packaging options are different as well. Free overnight Fedex shipping with Millers as well.

If I am filling orders for weddings or portraits, I use millers. If I am filling orders from live events or sports, I use mpix. Don't get caught up in the "pro" designation.
