What’s the Difference Between Using Generic vs. Professional Print Labs?

Every time I visit the homes of my beautiful families, it is so fulfilling to see their memories in print. Your photos are BEST enjoyed in tangible form.

So often I am asked for recommendations of the best places to print photos. We have so many options when it comes to the generic printers at our local pharmacy. However, because I value these tangibles, I also believe in using professional print labs to ensure the highest possible quality of the image.

Additionally, professional labs offer only the finest papers available in the photographic industry paired with printing techniques that are calibrated with our monitors to ensure the image processing is aligned perfectly with the photographer’s exposures, color calibrations and editing style.

Featured below is an example of the vast difference in quality of generic vs. professional print lab.

  • The colors you see on the screen are professional calibrated with the print lab; therefore guaranteeing that you will receive a print with the correct color profile
  • Highest possible resolution for smooth features (As opposed to a very pixilated image with discoloration and/or dark shadows
  • Various selections of a beautiful lustre or matte finish, as well as fine art and metal prints

After already investing in your family’s memories with a portrait session, I encourage going pro when it comes to displaying all of your favorite images throughout your home!
