In my experience, the key is to print from a digital file. I know you wrote that you don't scan, but I recommending biting the bullet and buying a scanner if you want prints that are both good and cheap. Calibrate your monitor and then find a place where they are able and willing to turn of the automatic color correction. I go to Costco and tell them "print as is." Works great!
