After a popular post last week on Reddit, I decided to check the cost of prints on Flickr. I want to build a physical portfolio, and was unhappy with the quality of prints from local shops; I expected to get what I paid for (not a ton) and even then was disappointed. I ordered two prints from Flickr, both 8×10″, both black and white.
I only did this because I can’t afford to print my entire (current) portfolio at once, and these two were the images I was most displeased with from local shops. So this, unfortunately, can’t yield any information about colour. I ordered one glossy print (I normally hate glossy, but wanted to see what it was like), and one “lustre” print.
