I’ve been wanting to do my own print comparison for a long time, and I finally got it finished and ready to share! Anytime somebody receives a disc of high resolution images and a print release, I recommend printing at http://www.mpix.com. I know a lot of people probably don’t do that because “WalMart is right there” or “I don’t have to wait for them to be shipped” or “It’s so cheap at the local pharmacy!” But when you really look at the difference – it is 100% worth going through mpix vs the big box stores like WalMart, Walgreens, or Target.

The price isn’t a huge difference. A 4×6 print at mpix cost 29¢, vs 19¢ at each other places I printed. Once you get hit the 5×7 size and up, mpix is actually cheaper. A 5×7 cost 99¢ at mpix, vs $1.47-$1.59 at the other places. You do have to pay shipping, but it’s not too expensive, and mpix is pretty good about offering free shipping codes here and there.

Below is the comparison – which print would you want on your wall?

  1. There’s a big difference, I’m thinking about doing the same thing. Do you have a physical copy of this? If so, how did you lay it out for the customer?

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you for doing this. :) I was wondering if Walmart’s prints were running on the red side. PROOF that they do. :)
