If you have a Shoppers Drug Mart near you that has a photo suite you can experiment a little there with only a few of your pictures directly off your camera card . . . . and its instant gratification, the pictures are available immediately.
So, if there is a problem, you can see right away with a cost that's generally pennies without ordering a full set. Their machines also have some interesting options for creating cards from your photos.
Strangely, I don't print a lot of pictures, preferring to store them on the 'puter (properly backed up of course). BUT I do have my own larger Canon printer and generally I find the quality better than the stores if I am throwing out 8X10's for my own amusement or 4X6's for the relatives.
