Hello everyone, I just recently moved to the Calgary area (from Buffalo, NY, USA) and am trying to build a small photography business here. At the moment I am trying to figure out what the best printing/processing option would be for my clients photos. Can anyone give me some suggestions/recommendations? Also, I'm considering using photoreflect.com for online proofing. Is that a good choice, or do you have any other suggestions? Also, if you use photoreflect, do you use their printing labs? Thanks!

I haven't done much printing. But I have tried Vistek and Costco. Vistek does nice prints. But they're not cheap (apprx. $18 for an 11" x 17"). Costco is cheap and of resonable quality.

I'll second Costco. I've printed 8x10's and 11x14's there and they turned out pretty nice. I haven't tried any of the pro labs in the city though.

I would stay away from Costco it is the same level as Wal-Mart - consumer end only. But London Drugs is a semi-pro lab, Blacks Photography is also a semi-pro lab and both are reasonably priced. The Camera Store is a bit more professional and a bit more pricey, and Western Canadian Graphics is getting closer to Professional - Vistek is professional and will cost the most.

I use Technicare. Their print quality is second to none and they are wholesale to photography businesses. You just won't be able to beat their prices. Great online tools also.
