I used to use the camera store I managed, but they went out of business earlier this year.   :(    I found a local camera store nearby now and try and use them when I'm not printing on Caroline's Epson PictureMate.  That is a pretty simple and easy to use home printer for 4x6's.  We discovered an issue when trying to print our square Instagram images, but after a bit of work, she found a work around and we can do it now.  

I have also used Walgreen's when they run print specials.

I had been using Sam's Club for my photo printing... but just learned that my local club no longer as a photo lab, which means that I have to send away for my prints.  I did place an order to do just that on Sunday and I guess I'm too impatient, because here it is Thursday and they haven't even shipped yet -- too slow for me!  I'll be looking for a new place to print my photos.  I've heard great things about Persnickety Prints, and I'm thinking about going there.  For anyone who has used them, how quick is their turnaround time?

@TiffanyW, I would love the code for Groovebook! I'm willing to give it a try if you think the quality is better than Shutterfly. Thanks so much!

Persnickety Prints usually arrive within a few days, and they send you emails with updates on your order status.

I use Smugmug for printing and storage.  I pay the premium annual rate but for the amount of photographs I take and store, the cost is absolutely worth it.  They have a metallic print option that is really fun to experiment with... almost all of my Disney World pics just "pop" right off the paper.  Smugmug is definitely not the cheapest but the quality is incredible.

Has anyone compared between Persnickety Prints and SmugMug? I used to be a SmugMug subscriber but didn't order prints from them. Also, how much are 4x6 photos at SmugMug?

Smugmug 4x6 prints start at 49 cents.  I've been wanting to try Persnickety for a comparison though.  I believe it's much easier to get coupon codes and stuff for Persnickety.  I've never seen Smugmug do any print promotions.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll stick with Persnickety then, since regular price is only 30 cents a print, and I have a print credit for half that price. I've been printing more at home lately though, now that I've got my lovely luster paper. :D

I, too, use Shutterfly - I'm bummed to hear this. I haven't had any photos printed in a while but I did have them do my Christmas cards. They came out great.

Most recently I used Mike's Camera in Colorado.  I live in Ohio and my dad lives in Colorado, so it was very easy to upload some images to their website, do what I needed to do with cropping and sizes, have them print the photo and then ship/mail them to him.  Granted I am not able to see the photos, but he said they were great and was very pleased with them.

I purchased a print card from a Canadian company, Black's. Then they went out of business before I had a chance to use the card. Frown. Now they are back online vs brick and mortar. Yay. Perfect timing as I choose the WITL photos. Smile.

Is Becky Higgins' Digital Project Life still printing with Shutterfly? I'm not a digital user, but I remembered that she had those available through Shutterfly. I dont know if that is still true.

The app uses White House Custom Color

There were/are a few kits and page layouts available on Shutterfly. But the downloadable digital products weren't associated with a specific printer.
