When we lived in Orlando, I got all my photos printed at Walgreens. Close by, always fast service, always friendly. Since we moved to SC, the exact opposite is true. They have now messed up three orders in three weeks. I put in a rather large order on Monday, and estimated time to completion was yesterday. I got an email confirming they received the order and I have a order number. Called this morning because I had not gotten an order completed email. They tell me they never received it. I’m done. None of my orders are urgent so...which online place has the best quality, service, price?
RETIRED after 31 years in CVICU. Married 48 years to my high school sweetheart. 2 kids, 2 grands. Left Orlando for the piney woods of SC!
I mostly print at home now (Epson PM400). Before that I ordered large batches from Persnickety Prints. I would occasionally order from Costco if I needed just a few or something quickly, but wasn’t thrilled with the quality compared to PP and really disliked the glossy prints.
I'm a Persnickety Prints fangirl! They have THE BEST quality pictures, you won't find anything like theirs at chain stores.
I just recently joined Costco so I gave their services a try since shipping is free. I was very pleased they didn't only offer glossy as I can't stand glossy pics. They are nice quality but it took so long to get them. I will use them occasionally but am sticking to Persnickety for all my large orders.
Another vote for Persnickety Prints. They are by far better than my Costco or Walgreens in terms of quality. They turn around really fast and I typically do a large bulk order. If I order on Monday, by Wednesday prints are in the mail & I get them before the weekend. They do sales a couple of times a year where you can buy credits to use later. They have amazing customer service too.
I used to use Costco and loved the way my pictures turned out but I've let my membership lapse. I've been using Snapfish for quite a while now. They usually have sales and I'm happy with how my pictures look. I compared to Winkflash and Shutterfly and the Snapfish pictures looked better.
Another Persnickety customer. I wait until their sales and then stock up on credits. I have not found anyone else that matches their quality. I ordered from them and then ordered a few of the same prints from Costco to do a side by side comparison. The colours from Costco were grey and murky compared to the Persnickety prints. I was very disappointed in Costco. You'll find cheaper options than Persnickety, but you won't find better quality IMO.
