One of my most asked questions from my clients after receiving their gallery is where they should print their images. It always makes me SO happy when I’m asked because that means two things:
- They are actually going to print their images! I love having our photos easily accessible on my phone or social media, but what is the point of investing in professional images if you aren’t going to print them? There is something about having physical copies of your images that just brings them to life in a whole different way! Not to mention, years down the road you and your family will appreciate having your images printed and not just digitally stored somewhere you may or may not be able to access them. Long story short, print your images!
- They care about the quality of their images. So often I see people invest in beautiful professional photos only to have them printed at a local drug store where the quality is just not there. Printing from a professional lab is the BEST way to get the most out of your investment and display their beautiful images that are true and accurate in color and quality!
If you are looking for quality labs that are still affordable and will truly display the essence of your beautiful images, take a look at the companies listed below! Oh, and don’t forget to take advantage of the savings offered in this post! 🙂
