OTHER SHOPS-

http://www.snapfish.com/ -> For small photo prints, like 5×7″ and 8×10″ prints (wedding signs, table numbers, sparkly backgrounds signs…) that you are going to use at an event and then you won’t keep them, I would definitively recommend Snapfish!

http://www.catprint.com/ -> Invitations, RSVP, postcards. Totally recommended. I’ve sent many brides here during the past 3 years.

How much does printing a printable file cost?

Here it is a quick snapshot of photo labs – for photo prints. Only for reference. Please visit each site for details.

Resolution  warnings.

Sometimes you’d get a resolution warning in Costco photo center or in Walgreens. Basically it says that the file is not big enough and sometimes this is a glitch and the file is correct and way bigger than needed.

Sample: A 30×20″, 300 dpi file is 9000×6000 pixels. If you try to print this at Walgreens, you’d get a resolution warning. And if you look at the ir size chart you can see that for a 30×20″ picture they recommend a file that is 2700×1800 pixels. Mine is way bigger than 2700×1800 pixels and I still get the warning.

So I just ignore it 🙂

I hope this helps!

Ps – If you want to avoid these problems, you can order in Lumaprints.com or Artisan Print & Frame Co. instead. Their customer service are actual persons 🙂
