Where should I order prints

I took some senior photos for a friends daughter to help them out. They want to print some wallet size photos to give out. Where online can I order them and they be professional quailty and have the rounded edges? My cousin uses a website called instaproofs.com but she is so busy I haven't gotten a answer about how to use it (it really confuses me it doesn't tell me how much they charge to print the photos, it wants me to tell them how much I want to charge). I am not wanting to charge them a fee to print the photos. Anyone got any suggestions? I will post some of the photos I did as soon as I get them edited.

Really, Snapfish? Hmmm. I wouldn't consider them anywhere near the quality of a pro lab. I've had some prints from them and the quality was pretty much the same as a drugstore print.

I'd go with Nations if you like the way the site is set up, they're a good, solid lab. I use WHCC (white house custom color) or MPIX pro. The basic MPIX is pretty good too, though not quite as professional looking as the other two pro labs.

In Australia there is not too much to choose from as far as labs go. One I used was horrible, changed all my colours and the blacks.... I wont even get started... If I had a scanner I'd show you some.

Snapfish Australia have been pretty much the best lab I have found in Australia, they dont change my colours and they look exact to my digital files.

I have found a lab that I havent tried out yet so I'll give them a go soon.

I also use WHCC and ProDPI. You have to submit test prints to labs such as these, so you can see if your monitor matches how the print comes out.
I'd say, if you don't want to get an account somewhere, just use MPIX.com. I've always called it a semi-professional lab (not as nice as the above mentioned), but better than snapfish and shutterfly anyday. I recommend mpix to my clients if they purchase digital files from me.

I've never ordered wallets from MPIX, but I've always been happy with them for their other prints.
