    Default Photo printing

    What would b the best choice in getting my photos printed professionally. I have a photoshoot for a family coming up next month and I want to know if it's smarter to print them off @ home or send them away to get professionally done?

    I just did a bunch for a wedding and Blacks' actually did fine with them. I used to use Custom Colour Photo professionally, but I haven't for quite a while. They're down on Queen near RYTAC.

    What is the difference between Blacks or Walmart printing your photos?

    I know the guy who does much of the printing for Blacks'. He's been into photography very heavily for quite some time. I have no idea who does the printing for Walmart. The quality of the printing still depends quite a bit on the person running the machine.

    my girlfriend does photography from her home also, she makes a disc of all the pics and lets the person pick and choose - print off what they want - where they want. just another option for you to condsider.
    good luck with your photo shoot!

    Well, anytime I go to up load to blacks site it wants a credit card, so I usually use walmart and pay in the store.. I have in the past used blacks but I use walmart more so now, anything under a 11X14 is printed local after that comes in from new market, I just actually had a 20x32 printed at walmart had it in to get it framed at the glass shop and she was rather surprised of where it was printed.

    Try Custom Colour Photo down on Queen St. sometime. That's a pro printer. Not even sure if they're still open, but if they are that's where I'd go for the best quality in town.
