View Full Version : Winkflash?
10-30-2006, 03:30 PM
I took the fall photos for my DD's preschool last week.
I am planning to send them to Winkflash for printing, but since I'm actually getting paid for these I wanted to see how everyone likes them.
How is the quality? My main worries are that they'll crop, and that the color may get messed up.
Any problems with that?

I just had a bunch of photos printed by them, as well as some cards, and I thought they did an excellent job ... no cropping issues at all and the color was terrific!

I absolutely love winkflash - prices, quality, FAST delivery, everything. That said, I am not a professional photographer, so am not sure how it compares to a prof. photo lab. Their website allows you to view how they will crop a photo for each size and allows you some movement to center it or whatever. They also have a matte choice option, which turns out very nice.
Good luck with them!

LOVE 'em! I've been using them for about 3 years. The few problems I have had, they've refunded me 100%, no questions asked. They do high quality work for VERY cheap. :)

I've had ONE problem from Winkflash and it probably wasn't their fault anyway. I ordered some 11x14's..second time ordering, and I never recieved them. My mail carrier is a moron, so likely..she dropped them off at someone else's house where they now probably have my wedding pictures on their wall. :) Anyway..I've always liked their quality and price and everything is just what I expect.

I love winkflash...I've had no problems with them.
That said, my friend who is a professional photographer, always uses mpix. I just used them this week for a project I did for the school's auction, and I am just blown away by how it turned out - but in this case, it was because I ordered a huge size (20 x 30), and had it mounted on double weight matboard. I paid $5 extra for fedex overnight, and it came so fast!
Just my .02!

I had one problem with them, but it was a long time ago and I'm sure it is not the norm. I usually use MPIX for my professional work - I love their paper options and color saturation. And the turn-around time is lickety-split!!

I've had only ONE problem in my 100 or so orders with winkflash--- once I got the wrong family's pictures. LOL!
They were lightning fast with getting me the appropriate pics and I'm pretty sure I got a refund too?
Anyway, they're fab!

I was really pleased with their service!

They're great for my personal photos, but I never use them for clients. I use a pro lab for those.

I've never used them, I use pro labs for all my stuff, PM and I'll direct you to them if you'd like.
