I'm looking for a low-cost, high-quality source for fine-art exhibit prints.  Probably 20 x 24, maybe larger.  Can anyone recommend one?

I've been using Bay Photo for a couple years and they've have been excellent.

Prices I'd say are pretty competitive for the quality. They may not be the absolute cheapest but they're the cheapest I've found for pro quality. Print quality is great. Packaging is excellent. They process quickly, usually a day or two. No minimum orders. They also do higher end stuff like exhibition, cotton rag, Fuji Pearl and a ton of other products. They can drop ship with blank packaging and no invoice. Shipper even damaged a package and Bay shipped another print no questions asked. Highly recommend them.

I've also tried a few others that do high quality work but have some quirks. WHCC has minimum orders policy. Adoramapix is closed for a lot of holidays. Mpix is pricey from what I remember.

Hope that helps.

WHCC does have a minimum order amount but it's very reasonable.  Their quality is excellent and they're usually very fast.

I think its $15-20. The problem for me is that excludes anything under 16x24 and probably half of my print sales are 8x12 to 12x18.

I totally understand the minimum. I'm not sure how Bay can print, package and ship 4x6's for 50 cents and make a profit. But they offer it and if a customer wants it I don't need to worry about minimum orders. I'm sure it's a loss leader and they make up the small stuff on bigger sales.

For at least a decade, I've used PhotoCraft Imaging in Boulder, Colorado. Can't say how their prices compare to others, but they really do good work.
