Recent Mpix order...


well, I just recieved my recent order from Mpix... three shots I had blown up to frame in our newley renovated bed room. One was a shot from my gallery of a tired farmer, resting at the big E this past september.. the other was a barn shot (from my gallery) and a picture of a painting of my dads mother as a teen back in Italy.. done somewhere around the early 1900's. After shooting it and retouching it in PS CS2 I was quite pleased with the results so my wife wanted to hang it in the hallway. I got the blowups back from Mpix and all I can say is WOW!! I could have never thought something I made was this outstanding ( not to toot my own horn...toot, toot!) but I could not believe how great these shots look blown up. I thought they looked good on screen but wow, the detail and sharpness is astounding, I have used Mpix before for wedding shots but only printed 4x6's.. which looked good too.
Just thought Id share in case you are looking for a good printing service.

  Craig, that is so good to hear. I've read numerous times to use Mpix, but haven't yet tried them. I've tried all of the local places and haven't had much luck. I even went as far as taking the same shot to 3 different locations...all of which were printed completely different from the other. Mpix for me the next time. Thanks for sharing!

  I'm right there with you guys. In a pinch I've used local developers. They are disappointing after the quality work that I've received from MPIX. I recommend using their finishing services for your photos that you have them print. I get mine done on a matteboard with a finger-proof coating and it's just fabulous.

  I had mine done just the standard way, glossy paper no specials and they look fabulas! I wanted to try the metallic paper but was afraid I wouldnt like it for these shots. I mounted them in Barn Wood frames and the barn pic and farmer pic just look at home there.. the pic of gramma was mounted in a black oval frame with an off-white mat.

Richard S. Clemens   I have used other on-line and local labs, but Mpix in my opinion is the best for me. I like their Kodak Endura, a little more expense but well worth it for those special shots.

Jen    I've also used mpix for a lot of enlargements, and I've always been impressed! They do such a superb job, and they are so unexpensive!! I've actually doubled my profit from using them instead of my local lab.

Nicole Kessel   MPIX ROCKS! I absolutely refuse to use anyone else! I just tried them out about three months ago and have had everything printed by them since! The largest I have had blown up was a 12x18 and it was perfect!

  Add me to the "I Love MPix" list. I've done 8x10, 10x13, and 20x30. All awesome, all fast, all packed with loving care.
