    Default Persnickety

    The newest place to get your LOs printed up is called Persnickety. I just had 135 pages printed, and am DAZZLED. The quality is wonderful, the speed was unbelievable, and the customer service is awesome.

    The only tiny issue I had with them is that the LOs would not upload until I transferred them from PSE to my desktop. But that was a minor glitch for me considering how user-friendly they were otherwise. I had 8.5 x 11 prints done with a full bleed.

    12 x 12 $1.99 ea
    10 x 10 1.99
    8.5 x 11 1.89
    8 x 10 1.89
    8 x 8 .99
    6 x 6 .79
    5 x 7 .69
    5 x 5 .59
    4 x 6 .29

    archival photo paper
    lustre
    glossy
    metallic

    they also do photo books and greeting cards
    (& they have some freebies)

    Free shipping with orders of $50 or more.

    I had a 25%-off coupon, but do not know when the next sale is. I signed up to be notified.

    Shar, was there any clipping of your pages? Or did everything print perfectly?

    Oh, and one other question, Shar. Did the color look like what you saw on your own monitor?

    Lana, with 135 pages, I have to admit, I didn't inspect them with a fine tooth comb, but did not notice any clipping that was significant enough to jump out at me (& I have spent time sorting them). As to the color....I think I would say they were a little darker than on my screen, but I never expect things to appear exactly as they do on my screen. In fact, I use two monitors, and even they don't match each other perfectly. I was satisfied with what I got. But you should certainly test them out before sending them a big order.

    135 pages??? My goodness. You just don't sit still do you?

    Glad you found another good place to print. Will check them out. Thanks for sharing.

    Some of those pages had already been printed once. I am giving my DDIL a birthday gift of pages I have done of her family over the last 2.5 years. But yes, I do make a lot of pages. In the week since I sent them in, I already have 16 new pages done. Some of my pages are VERY simple however....just photos...no papers or elements except for a narrow bar to separate the pictures, and a date.

    Okay. Thanks for the info, Shar.

    I just printed 10 of my page at 12x12 size for the first time at Costco. I was disappointed at how much darker the prints were than what I see on my screen. Is this normal? Should I lighten everything up and try again or should I make a comlaint and have the pages printed again? How do Persnickety prints compare to what you see on screen? I do have a Spyder so maybe I need to use that and recalibrate my monitor.
    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    You need to talk to the people at Costco. They have a particular setting they make. It's been a long time since I had anything printed there, but they should know what I'm talking about.

    Other than that, I could suggest you have a few test pages made at Persnickety (or other printer) to see how you like them. I have them print mine a touch lighter than "normal," and they are perfect. I remind them each time I send in an order how I like them, and they do it right.
