Default ATTENTION !!! Large Prints.

I am soooo sorry. I was going to post this Friday, but I totally forgot. Sony has a special deal going on right now (ends today) May 22, 2006.

16" x 20" normally 14.99 Sale! $7.49
20" x 30" normally 19.99 Sale! $9.49

For those that wanted to try larger prints, here is a relatively inexpensive way to try.

Here is a link.

I did get the prints in. They were all great quality and came packed in a round tube. For those of you that mat and frame your prints, round tube are not the best.

Be aware that when ordering from them to watch for "hidden details." One order I made of a special offer had some important details hidden in a link on the order page that was the same as the link I clicked to get there. After four days of communicating, I did get it resolved. Their main comment was the buyer needs to be sure to check every link to see if there may be some details. I asked them to rename there link "Details" or "Please Read Prior to Placing Order" or better yet, put the details on the order page. I had to dig for contact info. They have a live chat available in a short search, but if you dig a bit in the Help files you can find an email address and a phone number. I usually look for that information prior to making the purchase. :-\

They do charge tax even though they are in California and I'm in Florida.

I still recommend MPIX.com for prints as they did ship them flat and much quicker service. All details were run across your screen on the way to placing the order. The quality of the prints were comparable. I will continue ordering from MPIX unless Image Station has a really good deal and then I will be looking for the "hidden details." Unless of course they fix that problem.
