A couple of days ago I saw someone on Twitter mention the newly launched MpixPro, a new printing lab with focus on pro photographers. I thought, what the heck, let’s check it out. I went on their web-site, read all I could about it and applied for the account. I got my acceptance response in less than three hours, then the same night I uploaded 5 test photos they printed and shipped to me for free, and today I already have my photos on hand. Not a bad start.

Here is the thing. I’ve always wanted Mpix to enter this kind of market and compete with other labs who cater to heavy printing photographers. I stuck with Mpix for several years now, even though they did not have a web-site dedicated to pro photographers, and I’ve always been happy with their service. Their web-site is easy to operate, their prints look great and arrive in boxes that allows prints to remain unfolded no matter what size, and I always get them fast. Well, now they have entered the pro photographer market, and I’m sure you will hear more about the service in the near future from many other photographers who are signing up right now. In fact, Scott Kelby wrote today he’ll have a review coming up soon.

My first impression is that this is going to be the way I will print from now on. Their prices are, of course, similar to Mpix’ regular service, but the nice feature is that they charge just $4 for FedEx the next day option. Their catalog is also twice the size and they added a whole load of new press products, and several fine art papers. What I also loved is that along with my prints, which I got in the usual Mpix’ high quality, they’ve included a paper sample kit, displayed on the photo below, which gives me a good idea of what the other papers look like. With all the new products, it’s handy that I can know that without having have to spend any money to test those papers out.

I hope Miller’s Lab succeeds in this new endeavor. I will post a more detailed review in the future after I use the service for an extended period of time.

  1. I am a brand new customer to Mpix and now MpixPro. I have to echo the above statements. I was floored with the professional service I received just for completing my sample prints. The overnight service is wonderful and the ability to now show off to my clients the different products and paper styles I can offer thanks to the awesome welcome kit…its priceless!. I also just ordered one of the specialty products, the Custom CD Case…WOW what an amazing job…My clients are going to be super excited with this surprise when I deliver their DVD to them. Keep up the outstanding work MpixPro !!!(oh and a big thanks to Scott Kelby for mentioning you guys….his blog is what got me pointed in your direction!)

    I’ve loved the service and quality of MPIX for almost 3 years now and only just learned of the Pro site. I expect it to be a very fruitful relationship.
