Re: Printing at Costco

When I was first choosing a printing house, I made a direct comparison against my local Costco (the flagship store in Issaquah, WA) and a custom printing house with a 12” x 18” photo with lots of detail and different colors. I used the ICC profiles for each printer.  When very closely examining both prints side by side, I could barely tell the difference, if at all.  The one big difference is that the custom printing house sent the print with a lot more padding and protection, but then again it was being mailed where the Costco print just went from the printer into a bin.

My theory is that not all Costco print shops are created equal.  I’m happy that I have access to one of the better ones.
