    Both Mpix and MpixPro are divisions of Miller’s Professional Imaging, and the entire company line uses the same professional photographic papers, inks, and canvases and the processing for each is the same within the divisions. So generally, you will find the same high quality product from all of their divisions.

    The difference between Mpix and MpixPro is simply the services and products they provide. MpixPro offers a much wider variety of products (twice as many) that are geared more towards the professional photographer.

    MpixPro does NOT offer color correction services through Zenfolio. Mpixpro also has additional shipping options not offered with Mpix.

    Lastly, Mpixpro does not make their product prices available to the general public and do not offer their services directly to consumers, unlike Mpix. So you can be sure that your clients will not know your cost for products.

    @ChessZen - "Mpixpro does not make their product prices available to the general public and do not offer their services directly to consumers, unlike Mpix. So you can be sure that your clients will not know your cost for products.

    Yes. You would never want your customers to know that you pay $0.69 cents for a 4x6 or 4x5print (no color correction) through MpixPro when they are paying a retail price of $0.29 (with color correction) through MPIX. Same print...same plant..same paper...same press. As @ChessZen says, "same high quality ".

    I have argued this point for years and both Miller's and Zenfolio don't seem to see this is a problem.

    Sure... offer 4x6 from MPIX and then everything else through MPIXPro. Great idea until your customers start screaming about being charged twice for shipping.
