    Hey there, I have to enlarge some prints for an auction and was wondering if there was a huge difference between local print places. Wolf camera is more expensive, but their paper seems to be thicker. Will the cheaper places have less quality. Longevity? True Color? Anybody have any advice? I was thinking like Walgreens or something opposed to Wolf...

    Thanks
    Cullen

    Cant speak for those two stors but I can tell you that the quality of a enlargment fromStaples is crap, the colors are not true at all. Staples and Officemax, and I am guessing Walgreens will produce fine images for advetising purposesbut if your selling the prints go with a print shop, the quality will be far better.

    Not sure what it's like in the states, but here in Australia for the normal labs the quality has nothing to do with the price or the name of the lab. The rabbit photo around the corner makes awesome enlargements. The one in Bracken Ridge bearly prints 6x4 without jaggies.

    I've had Wolf print all sizes for me, price is a little high but they do good quality...... I am a member so I get discounts with them and there are 3 of the stores within 10 minutes of me.
