    Nova Photo Centre - Digital Prints

    I've never used their online service before, but have used their instore service and been pretty happy.

    Now for my shameless plug - I co-own a fine art printing company here in Calgary. Check out our site for all our services. We specialize in large format prints on canvas and other fine art paper.

    There prices seem a little steep. What about something like snapfish ?

    Or better yet a good local company in kitchener?

    I like Snapfish for my snapshot pictures, that are just for my personal albums and thigns like that. Nice that they are inexpensive, especially when I am taking tons of nothing special shots.
    I would not use them for photographs for clients though. For that I'd rather stick to a pro lab. The downfall of the cheaper places are inconsistant results and sometimes wacky computer adjustments.

    So what. Just raise your print prices a bit to cover it and maintain the quality.

    The way my business mind works, I provide my clients the highest quality products, regardless the price.

    If they want bargain basement pricing they can go to a retail chain outlet.
