RitzPix is a fast and easy digital printing service. They differ from traditional online photo processors by offering 1-hour photo printing. Instead of uploading photos to their web site then waiting for your prints to arrive a few days later in the mail, you can pick up your prints in a hour at one of their network of brick and mortar photo stores including Ritz Camera, Wolf Camera and many more. Their prices are competitive with most photo services and you save time and delivery fees.Due to their nature, photo gifts are not available for 1-hour service.
Ritzpix offers numerous different types of prints and gifts you can order online and have delivered direct to your door. These are all pretty good quality and, although not the cheapest around, are priced quite competitively. Also, if you live near one of the participating collection stores, you can order your photos online and pick them up within the hour. Combined with the live online chat support and, unusual for many websites, a phone help line this all adds up to a good level of service.

Pricing and Shipping Cost
So how does RitzPix.com measure up against the competition in terms of the rates that they offer? Here’s an example to give you an idea of the prices that they have. If you order 4×6 prepaid Digiprints which is processed for one hour, the price per photo is $0.18. If you order 100 prints of this size, the cost for shipping would amount to $6.49 via standard US Mail and $18 for overnight delivery.
I’ve used many different printing services for my images, especially being a border-line amateur to pro photographer. The prints that I’ve received from RitzPix have been consistently good in quality. Back in the day when I was shooting film, there was a wide latitude for the print color and density of the final prints. But for my digital prints I prefer them to be printed as is, which RitzPix does a great job with.
I’ve used ShutterFly and other services, but they may offer low cost prints, but they get you in the shipping costs. At least with RitzPix, I get free shipping if my order is for $30 or more. Plus I can get 100 4×6 prints for as low as only 11¢ each. That’s a great price when I’ve got tons of prints to get done in a single shot.
Overall, it’s been a great experience in working with RitzPix. My orders are processed and shipped in a timely manner.
One of the best things about Ritzpix.com is that you can make use of the information on their site which is entitled “Digital Photography 101″. This is where you can learn how to take better photos. As compared to other digital photo printing service providers, the rates offered by Ritzpix.com are a bit higher – but they make up for it in convenience when it comes to the delivery options that they offer. All in all, Ritz Camera is definitely a company that you can trust when it comes to delivering the best digital photo printing services.
