I ordered some of my favorite photographs from Mpix.com a few days ago. I had some enlarged to 8x10s and some into 5x7s. I also decided to try their metallic paper. The prints came in yesterday and I am ecstatic! I wish I could show you how the prints turned out, but it's not possible unless you are one of those people that I see quite often.
Out of all the pictures I've taken, most of them are just stored away on disks and on my computer. I rarely print them unless I have a specific purpose for them. I don't want them just stashed in some photo box or in the company's print sleeves, you know? Well, the prints I ordered are intended to help decorate the bare walls of my home. There's this small-scale framing business in town that doesn't quite realize how fantastic they are, so their prices are really reasonable. I plan to go there and see how they can make magic with my photographs!
p.s. Happy Veteran's Day!
