Hey again all! I don't typically give prints when I shoot, mostly only the CDs. Every once in a while, I print something for someone who just wants maybe an 8x10 to go along with their CD. I don't have a home printer that I think would be good for that but I don't know (the only printer I have is my Epson Workforce 500, the all in one type). Either way, I have to print a lot of stuff for my primary field, so I don't want to be spending a ton on ink to print photos when photography is secondary. I've been using Kodak's online service to get my prints. It's cheap and the color looks good to me and more importantly good to the people I'm giving the prints to, but the paper seems thin to me compared to the thickness you get from places like commercial chain portrait studios or office type places. I looked around through the options to see if you could pay more for a sturdier stock and either there wasn't an option to change the paper stock or I just couldn't find it (if you know where it is, please tell me lol) I want to be able to order a print on a sturdier stock. I just don't know of any other online printing places. I DID search this forum, but honestly, I haven't heard of ONE of the online places that have been mentioned, which makes me wary of using any of them, because the opinions seem to be scattered. The one that was mentioned here that I've seen mentioned on other sites though is www.mpix.com. I've seen enough positive feedback on them to be willing to give them a try, but how do I know which paper stock to choose? If you've ordered from Kodak, basically, I want something stiffer than that, closer to the thickness of what you'd get if you dropped your prints off at a Kinkos or Rite Aid or something or better. It's been a long time since I've compared different paper types, so I can't really describe it better. I know the quality of the image itself is the most important thing, I just don't want paper that's as flimsy feeling as that Kodak stuff. I worked for Lifetouch for a while though so maybe I just got used to whatever paper stock they were using and it's making me THINK Kodak's is flimsy ::shrug:: Any advice on choosing the right stock? Any opinion on mpix? Any idea if Kodak offers sturdier stock? Also, sorry if I'm saying stock and should be calling it something else like weight or something. I'm willing to consider other online printing places too, but please keep in mind that I need the prices to be low, less than $5 per 8x10 print.
