Anyone Used White House Custom Colour?

  1. Hello,

    I've just come across an online photo lab called 'White House.' Their prices for large format
    prints are the cheepiest I've seen, so I was wondering if anyone has used them before? Do
    they have a good (if any) reputation? Thanks for your help.

  2. I've used them dozens of times and always had first class results. I wish they had a bit more choice of paper surfaces, but that is my only nit.
     
  3. I use them as well and they are fantastic. I am always happy with the results, be it color or black & white. I highly recommend them.
     
  4. Bryan,

    I haven't used WHCC yet, but I've heard good things about them. I've been experimenting with several online labs to see what lab delivers the results I want. Mpix had very good quality and fast turn-around time. I really like their b&w prints. I also tried ezprints (www.ezprints.com), which is base here in metro Atlanta, Ga, and their work is very impressive. They have 3 paper choices: glossy, matte (Kodak Endura), or Lustre (Fuji Professional Lustre). I'll be trying WHCC next. Good luck, and if you use them, let me know how you like the results.

    Thanks, Duane
     
  5. Thumbs down! They request your images to be compressed at a level 10 JPG. I've order two wedding albums to be made with their "Album Prints," which is a very inexpensive way to print flush mount albums. For 10x30 or 15x20 metallic prints costs only $10 each. That is unbeatable! But, the quality of these prints were extremely poor. It looks like they compressed them to a level 3 JPG. The images were soft, muddy (low contrast) and clumpy, just like how you'd think a highly compressed JPG would print. My clients pay upwards to $5000 for their wedding album and White House Custom Colour (whcc) just doesn't cut it. I switched back to using Millers Lab and Bay Photo.

  6. I've had nothing but good experience with WHCC. Send them a good file and get a good print back has been my experience.
