    Can't find any information on the various photo site (ofoto,
    shutterfly) regarding whether they use glossy or matte finish for 4x6
    and 5x7 prints, and I cannot find an option.

    I'm looking for Matte - can anyone provide any help?

    I use Walden Photo in Waterloo Iowa. They do matte or
    glossy. I live in the same town as them so I just go to their store, but
    you can do it online too.

    dotPhoto offers a matte option. I'm sure a few others do as well.

    The only problem I had with dotPhoto and matte finish is that the orders
    were delayed up to a week. At one point, they tried printing them daily but
    then apparently went back to doing it about once a week. I usually need my
    stuff sooner than that, so I've been going to Sam's Club and a local lab
    that both do matte on-site. I believe that any one-hour lab that uses Fuji
    equipment uses matte paper.

    Walmarts 1 hour processing does matte finish. And they are an
    inexpensive as any online place I've seen.

  7. However, the online only does glossy.

    Some places (,,, allow you
    a choice of glossy or matte. I'm sure there are others.

    Try they charge .39 up to 100 and .29 100 and up and
    they have the option for glossy-matte-regular borders and white

    They also use Kodak Royal Paper which is the best paper on the market.

    My friend had recommended them to me and i was suprised at the quality
    and turnarount time.

    give them a try!

    At .39/4x6 you'd better be.
