    List of Pro labs?

    My local lab is shutting down. Anyone compiled a list of pro labs to work with online? Anyone have a favorite? I used the search funtion, but wasn't getting anywhere. This is for pro work. Mainly senior portraiture. Thanks folks.

    www.millerslab.com Millers Professional Imaging. They are located in southeast Kansas.

    I know, short list, but the only place I'm willing to recommend.

    Ummm, places better than MPIX. Full service pro labs. Proofs to prints. Preferrably a place that is easy to work with.

    Mpix now offers mpixpro (which I've so far found awesome), but I'm pretty sure mpix (standard) does proofs and proof books as well.

    Yes but they do vary in their degree of professional services. I haven't looked into what Miller's offers vis a vis the other two arms of the company, though. MpixPro was definitely a step up from the standard Mpix.

    Yep, you have to be approved through an application process to use MpixPro or Millers.

    All 3 use the same printing equipment and techs, but Millers has many products Mpix customers can't get.

    MpixPro is like Millers in that clients can't see the prices.

    MpixPro is about a week old at this point and will morph as Millers fine tunes it.

    I use WHCC, and found they are very good. Amazing packaging, fast turnaround, and a lollipop with each package!

    and great prints, hah.
