Competitive pricing and plentiful finishing choices make this American lab a popular option
Like most other labs, New York-based AdoramaPix offers a wide range of printing solutions, from photo prints to books and ‘home décor’, the latter including metal, acrylic and canvas prints, as well as options for framing. Billed as a professional-quality service, there’s nevertheless no support for Adobe RGB colour space so, if you use this format, you’ll have to convert your files to sRGB before uploading them. The flipside is that ICC profiles are available to download for a variety of papers.
Biased towards Kodak pro papers, the main choices are Kodak Professional Endura Supra in glossy, matte or lustre finish, plus Kodak Professional Endura Metallic at an additional cost. It’s not Kodak all the way, however, as Fuji Professional Deep Matte is a new addition to the line-up. Pricing is very competitive at, for example, $2.48 for 12x8-inch prints ($3.10 for metallic).
AdoramaPix offers free colour and density correction by hand. Processing times for photo prints is typically two days (expedited one-day processing at additional cost), followed by a variety of delivery options starting at $5 for a seven-tonine day domestic service. Free domestic delivery is available on orders over $39. Print quality is impressive, and the handcorrection option typically yields the best results.
