Yeah, I really like how his head obscures the logo of Random Notes.
I sent them a description and they used it nearly word for word. Maybe it will get me a discount at Fingerprints.

If you ever had any question about how digital cameras image, why more pixels isn't always better, how to read a MFT chart, what the Nyquist frequency is, what is a bayer filter, and what trade offs come when designing these (and more) systems, boy does Panavision have you covered:
Demystifying Additional Information
Simply amazing in the depth of material covered (although some is specific to motion picture digital cameras, but still interesting). If you have a bit of time (couple of hours), I think it is well worth the watch.

I use White House Custom Colour. They do a great job of matching color, have fantastic line of products and papers. You have to go through a process with them when you sign up of sending them 5 8x10s, which they print and send to you for free to make sure your color management is correct. They are also just really nice people.

My experience with WHCC wasn't bad. When I signed up, it took me a while to get a response from them, or so I thought. I found their emails buried in my spam filter. But after I sent them a couple files for proofs, they sent the prints back right away. They looked good, but that's the extent of my experience with them.
MPIX.com has been great for me. They've been doing all the fulfillment of print orders from my website, including mounting/matting/framing and I've not had any issues with their quality. They don't do custom sizes the way WHCC does, but you should be able to get any 1:1, 3:2, or 5:4 aspect ratio prints done with no problems at all. They're slightly less expensive, too, from what I've seen.
But the key to Mpix (and any printing, really) is to use a color gamut that is compatible with the printer's machines (I use AdobeRGB) and a color corrected monitor to process the images. Then, if you order via MPIX, be sure to check the DO NOT COLOR CORRECT option on all your orders. Otherwise, their monkeys get a hold of stuff and it turns out slightly off from what you're seeing on the screen.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

I keep hearing about these metallic prints. Are they cool?
