My local lab in Omaha--Midwest Color--just sent out a mailer that they have
lowered the price of their light-jet prints. On "paper" on quantities of
one, their list shows $29-16x20, $75-30x40, $265-50x96. Of course they also
have their "computer time" for for "file/disk Utilities $60/hr, 1/4 hr min.,
and also "RIP" time at $60/hr.
