  MPIX is a good website for that!

  Costco on-line, Wal-mart online...the list is long. There is always a chance that you are sacrificing quality for price. I think it should depend on the use of the photo. If you are printing out the snapshots of the family vaction, you are not as worried about quality. Now I'll hawk Mpix. Their prices are low and they are very fast. They also do color correction if you ask.

If you have cropped something to a non-standard size, hamilton color lab in Omaha can't be beat. I had something that was non-standard. I specified I wanted the short dimension 16" and they did it. It came out about a 16"X27".

Jeffrey R. Whitmoyer   Costco is reputed to be quite good and you can download the printer profiles on line so that your computer and their printers are well matched. Each store has its own profile for their machines. Also, you can email your files to the local Costco and have them printed up to I believe 12X18. For larger work, I believe they subcontract and the quality, so I've been told, tends to decline.
I've heard good things about MPIX as well.
You might want to do some online research for printers. Use the ads in one of the photo mags as a guide as to whose sites to check.
