Hello all,

I was just wondering were everyone gets their quality photos that you send out to be autographed? I've tried prining my own but it just looks horrible and the ink comes off of the photo paper. I've also tried doing them at Wal-Mart but they say I need a release for them to reproduce them.

Any suggestions?

I get all my pics off of Google images. They have a search function where you only see the big files. Then I send the files to Sharpprints.com

They have never once rejected printing. Hope I helped.

Does CVS have a self-serve station or something? I tried Walgreens and they told me no and gave me the same reason as OP had at Walmart.

What BigBlue said- you can filter out the google images to print only large/good quality prints and also ones that are not copyrighted so you won't be breaking any laws.
In the UK we have self service photo printing- take along your USB stick, phone cable etc and plug it into the machine and the pictures that you want printed will appear. I think it only costs me something like 60p per print...the more you print though the cheaper it is.

One last question about this. Do you type in the GOOGLE search for "large file" or do you just look at the size? What size is a good quality picture sizes?

I print them myself. My dad has a good printer- it prints 600 dpi (twice the dots per inch my printer has). I use expensive, HP Photo Paper. I think they look amazing- I'm blown away by the quality. As others mentioned, if you go DIY, always use the largest files. Walmart 1-hour gave me the third degree as well... But they did sell to me a few times, and I found their quality to be poor (offcentered, printer marks [can see lines going thru pics], printing on wrong size, etc.). Another thing- Walmart 1-hour only prints on matte paper. I discovered over time sharpie signatures bleed into the paper. Not sure what your interests are, but Wikimedia Commons and NASA.gov are good sites for finding hi-resolution images. Also you can narrow your google searches to large images only.

Not trying to plug any particular website or anything, but I get all of my photos from allposters.com. They're pretty reasonably priced and you don't have to worry about copyright or anything. If the person I'm looking for isn't on there, I usually will look on Amazon also.

I save images from Google (making sure they're large for best quality) then I print them using a website called Truprint - for new members, you get 20 free prints and only have to pay like £2 postage so I make a new account each time I order :lol:
