Costco photo printing – any good?

By longshanks - 20 July 2012 8

Just wondering if anyone has had photos printed out at Costco, and is able to comment on the price/quality?

What’s Your opinion?

I’ve noticed that since the advent of digital photography the printed photos never look as good as the same image on the screen. They’re duller and darker. I suppose in the age of Photoshop and instant downloading and printing our expectations are higher than when we pointed a film camera and meekly accepted what we got back from the photo lab days or weeks later.

I got some photos printed there and decided not to go back. I wasn’t happy with the paper quality or the print quality. I always prefer to get them done at Big W for about the same price.

I’ve done a batch of 300 photos with Costco – they were good quality (I had to pick up the next day). Also, if you look in the stationery type section there is a photo album you can buy with a discount coupon in it for prints – initially they reckoned it was for the US store only but their manager just shrugged and gave me the discount.

I was too scared to ask what sizes they print in as going by the smallest bag of potato crisps being the size of a hessian CSR sugar bag I thought they would say “B-4 is the smallest size and 100 is the minimum amount”
The pizzas are the size of cartwheels – no one in Cnaberra has an oven big enough for them.
Oh, and JW Black Label is 1.25 litres minimum size.

Have looked and looked at those huge Pizas. Will have to get one next visit, will hack into smaller pieces and freeze whats left ..

Must be something about ovens in shiny new homes … they fit fine (OK, snugly) in ours. Pretty bland unmodified, though.

I had 340 prints done by that large emporium behind Bunnings in Fyshwick on the weekend, and the quality was excellent. Meanwhile, the big double screw in the Canberra Centre have totally messed up their machine’s settings and their pprinting is as contrasty as a bogan’s Palsonic plasma these days.

No doubt Costco’s up there with their quality control, if not, Fyshwick’s not far away.

Oh and for those who want top notch individual printing and don’t mind paying more for the service, there’s an independent store in Woden Plaza near the fruit shop…

Haven’t used them, but … according to their website, 6″ x 4″ prints are 9c, with no mention of minimum quantity. And being CostCo, I expect the quality will be right up there.
