Weekly Photo Tips MpixPro Review


Our good friend Scott from Weekly Photo Tips passed this review on to us. For anyone who has not signed up yet, here is a good overview of what to expect.

I don’t make a habit of posting on the weekend (or posting consecutive product reviews) but I received a package yesterday afternoon and I really did not want to wait to share the contents.

This past Monday I joined MpixPro and though short, it has been pretty darn impressive ride so far.

As photographers I don’t think we can have too many good resources and many photographers that have my respect are members of MpixPro already so I thought I would give them a try.

I submitted my application for membership on Monday morning and was approved later that same day. Once approved you upload 5 test images that MpixPro will print as 8×10’s and ship out for next day delivery, all for free. I uploaded my images Wednesday, received an email Thursday letting me know that the printing was completed and that my package was being shipped that day, arriving on my porch Friday.

The purpose of the five uploaded images is for monitor calibration testing, to make sure what they print matches what you see on your monitor (as they do not offer color correction so the quality of the print is directly dependant on your monitor being properly calibrated).

To make sure I got a good sampling of their printing abilities I sent black & white images, color images, action, and still life.

Every print they sent me was outstanding.

Along with my five 8×10 images my package included a catalog of all the product MpixPro offers as well as a sample of all the papers they print on.

I did not become an MpixPro member so I could review them on Weekly Photo Tips, but my experience has started out so well and the quality of the prints they sent so good, I really wanted to share it with other photographers.

Membership is free, so you have nothing to lose and outstanding quality to gain.

  1. I want to say that I have never had a better experience with any other professional printers. This service provides incredibly fast and high quality prints that are consistent. Mpix Pro is simply amazing!

    Am patiently waiting for the delivery of my monitor calibrator, then… it’s uploadin’ time. I can’t wait.

  3. I have used Mpix for over a year now and was very impressed. I was told about the Mpixpro. I applied today got accepted today and now waiting on my 5 free prints to make sure everything matches. i have loved every single thing about Mpix and am very excited to start a new chapter in my business with mpixpro, thank you for making this hectic part of photography so easy and comforting knowing our work is in great and talented hands.

    I was with Mpix and joined Mpixpro several months ago. Both have been outstanding with quick turn around times and customer service. I’ve not seen a better place! Thank you Mpixpro!

    I have used MPIX many times before (along with Millers, ACI and McKenna Pro). I really like MPIX but am wondering what the true difference is in the public website MPIX vs. MPIX Pro.

    I have many clients who are very saavy with the technology these days and they know about MPIX. I Know my photography needs be outstanding to charge what I do. But I had one client (so far) ask why I charge $$$ for my gallery wraps when she can get them from MPIX for $$$. While I was stunned I did explain why. She excepted my answer but then turned around and asked if she could buy a cd of her images (uummm I wonder why??).

    I have signed up for an MPIX Pro account but I’m still not sure how this will make a difference for my saavy clients (who, by the way, does NOT know where I print from).

    Mpix is geared toward anyone with a camera. MpixPro is for professional photographers. The quality of both is great, but MpixPro offers more products and options.

    You should just explain to your client that they are investing in the image…not the paper (or canvas). Obviously, you are doing this for a living, so there’s no way you can charge exactly what your lab charges.

    Many clients are wanting CDs of their images because they are learning how they can use labs like Mpix to print their own images. As long as your business evolves, this shouldn’t hurt you. Offer a custom-printed DVD and DVD case to your clients with all of their images on them. BUT, price it above and beyond anything else you offer. Since they will have the ability to make unlimited prints, it should be a luxury item, and priced accordingly.

    With a purchase of a DVD, refer them to Mpix! That way, you know the quality will be fantastic and you don’t have to worry about them showing off Wal-Mart printed pictures. Yikes!
