I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the best way to print a 20 x 30 photo (its for a friend for his birthday) and I found a place in Toronto that will print it for about $35 CDN. 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to print it another way?  As well, what is the best way to mount it/plaque it so that it will hang on the wall (also being a bit cost efficient - I have a maximum price of $130 CDN.

Just looking for suggestions since I've never done this before and I don't want it to turn out shotty.

I have used for a few of my large print outs with great success.  My prints still look great after two years.  A 20X30 on lustre paper will run about US $22.  Just remember to use their professional service, because the other one tries to auto correct your exposure and saturation.  Similar to what Wal-mart does.

Whats the differene between lustre and the other papers? 

I would assume that they are not using pigment inks tho?

So many questions...sorry if I should really know this.

Thanks again to everyone who answers.

Lustre is very similar to their matte paper.  It has a little more sheen to it.  I'm not sure how they print it to be honest but it has done very well for me as far as fading goes.  Here is a quote from their website.

"We print on Fujicolor Crystal Archive professional photographic paper, processed through professional Fuji Hunt Chemicals. The archival qualities of this process is 50+ years, before fading may occur. This is the same process that you would find at your better pro-labs."
