I go local or use my Zenfolio. So far everyone and what I have ordered has been great from Zenfolio with super quick delivery. My local print is sweet.

Try Blue Cube. He comes highly regarded. Raves all over Model Mayhem.

I'll second Bay Photo. I'm a little biased though, since they are located about a mile from me.

I just did a wedding and got my test prints from MpixPro and WHCC, and I gotta say, I was just humoring MPIXPro. I'd heard such praise for WHCC that I'd decided they were "where it's at," but the experience with them, before even spending a dollar, is so bad that I won't be using them. It'll be Millers, Mpix Pro, Bay or ProDPI. WHCC was super slow on shipping the test prints (arrived two days after MPIXPro, even though I signed up with WHCC a whole day before), they got here and were dinged in so many places that when trying to compare their color with the MPIX photos, I couldn't because the two convex dings in two different spots of the photo made the reflection so bad that I couldn't accurately compare. And more importantly, when I called Customer Service, I got a droid, robot guy who kept repeating the party line over and over again, no ability to use his brain or respond in any logical or original fashion. They won't send new test pics, but want me to go on faith that all the bad service I experienced wouldn't happen if if were something I'd paid for. MPIX send samples with a big stamp saying CALIBRATION PRINT. WHCC doesn't, but if they are scared of giving you usable prints, I'd rather have the watermark and be able to be sent judgeable test prints, than to have an unmarked print that looks like crap because it's been abused. I told him that if they'd sent me nothing, I'd have more confidence in them than the callous customer support and slow, poorly packaged shipping. Really mad that I spent $20 for the swatch sample kit (that is also taking forever to get to me) for a company I know I probably won't ever patronize. I think they must have so much business already and such a reputation to ride off of that they aren't scared of scaring away customers.

Well I guess that Walgreens and Walmart are out of the running then.
