Printing at the Chandler Costco

I just got an 8x10 back from Costco. Good, but not super quality, because I misremembered the resolution their Noritsu printers are set for. As a result, my images were scaled by the printer software and lost a little bit of detail. (Not enough that anyone else notices it—my parents are thrilled with the quality of the portrait of my brother, but I can see where the softening occurred because I spent hours working on it in Digital Photo Professional and Photoshop.)

So, for the benefit of myself and anyone else in Phoenix printing at the Chandler Galeria Costco store, #736: Their Noritsu 3411 is configured for 320 ppi input. 300 ppi images will be scaled up by the printer and quality will be lost.

I HIGHLY recommend setting up an account with WHCC (whcc.com). Every single print I've ordered from them has been perfect, and they're also speedy and economical. They offer free 2-day shipping, too, and only work with digital printing. Check them out! :)
