You know all of those amazing photos you have in your phone of your kiddos – or selfies with your love? Well I have a lot. Like 1,000 videos and 9,000 photos. So I took to Instagram stories to ask people which service they thought printed the best quality iPhone (or Android) pictures. The suggestions ranged from Walgreens to Costco to Shutterfly. So I did what any other self-respecting adult does – I price matched – and then compared how long it would take for me to get them. Because let’s be honest, any self-respecting adult would rather pay more to not have to wait 2 weeks for them to arrive in the mail.
What I discovered was the holy grail of photo printing. Costco! Not only can you do same-day pickup, but it is also cheaper than the competitors. And the best part is the quality is OUTSTANDING! I’ve ordered from Walgreens/CVS and both times had to return my orders because the printing was terrible. Colors running, weird pigments, discoloration…stay away.
But the Costco prints I picked up were very clear, no grain to be found, and the colors were exactly what showed up on my phone. Also, I uploaded and ordered them directly from their website without needing a computer. Perfect. 10.

Look at the photos below – the selfies and the one of Luke at the lake look just as clear and rich in color as the other photos (which were shot on expensive DSLR cameras).
