    Wink Flash? Anyone heard of them?

    I stumbled across this company called Wink Flash and I am wondering if anyone else here uses them? Are they any good?

    Yes - I haven't tried them out yet, but have 2 friends who highly recommended them to me. My friends said the prints are excellent and the prices are good. I'm going to try them out soon.

    Cool Great!

    Now you can give us a review!

    I'm sure they will be fine. I hope you do well - it's very generous of you to do this.

    For the price you cannot find any website that is better. Shipping .99 No matter how big the order. They give you virtually free products. I ordered a 100-page 8x10 photo book. The cost was $50. The quality was super. Can you get better quality sure you can by may be 5% but the cheapest I found was $150 for the same product. (Snapfish $120, shutterfly $130, Kodak $140 for 80 pages)

    I never had problem with them so I am not sure about their customer service. I have had more the 15 orders and over 2000 photo. Not a single complain.

    16x20Stretched Canvas at winkflash $36. Snapfish $80. Shutterfly $90.

    By far, THEY ARE THE CHEAPEST on everything. Quality, not the best but among the best. Though they are comparable to the best, do not compare a $36 product with a $90 one.

    I use them quite offten. You can't beat the price and shipping costs. I use them for everyday album and the wifes carry around prints of the Grand Kids. You'll be happy with them.

    I just placed my first order from Winkflash yesterday. They have stretched canvas at very reasonable prices. I ordered one yesterday to donate to a silent auction for a friend with breast cancer. I will report back with my thoughts on the quality of the canvas when I get it.

    Re: Wink Flash? Anyone heard of them?

    It sounds very interesting. For my larger prints I have used Costco with the calibrated color profiles with very good results. I'm very curious how the prints from Wink turn out since they don't use any profiles at all, just plain sRGB. Can anyone comment?

    Thanks,

    as long as your monitor is calibrated to photographic standards you should be fine. they don't do any color correction, so what you send is what you get. I was very happy with the tones of my print.
