It all depends, what you are paying for at a pro lab theoretically is consistency. I started my lab jobs at a drug store, with an old optical mini lab.....we were still able to outprint frontiers and ran a business out of town which claimed to cater to pros/advanced amateurs.....why? We cared. It may have helped that my boss was the "district lab trainer", but the point is, if you wind up having a staff that CARES results will be better.
