I need to print some of my photos for display at an exhibit. I have no clue where to get them printed. I have a color laser but that isn't a good photo printer. Suggestions please. Thanks in advance.

Welcome! to the photo forum, Becky!

Not being based in the US, I'm afraid I can't recommend any specific printing service.

However in my opinion, any professional level printing service should be able to provide you with ICC-profiles so you can soft proof your images on your calibrated monitor. This is not 100% accurate but it will at least give you a better idea of how your finished prints will look. I would also definitely do some small test prints, to verify that the result is what you expect, before committing to printing everything at full size. Smiling

In my opinion a good printing service should also have some sort of guide on how to best process your photos for their printing process. I think it goes without saying that you normally do not want your carefully edited photos to go through any auto correct madness at the printing service... Auto correct is for JPEG's straight out of camera and as such not suitable for critical work.

Also office supply stores like Office Max or Staples that have \copy/print services. It's a common thing for them. Bring your flash drive in an they can do it right on the spot.

Thank you all for the info. @William I like the idea of test prints. I will definitely be doing that. I want to print locally and not online if at all possible. There is a Staples near me, so I'll look into that. Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
