I am very new at this and trying to sort it out, I was just reading ofotos web site and they use a silver halide print process that they say is archival which is equal to 35mm film. Since I cannot get a new printer yet, and I know the 1280 is not good would it be wise to use this service until I can upgrade equipment ? Could I then charge based on their "Archival Quality" statement?
Can anyone recommend a good Giclee Print Service that can be used online?

If you don't need art paper or canvas output, look into Lightjet or Lambda prints using Fuji Crystal Archive paper (the Fuji Frontier machine is an option for smaller prints). These prints have excellent longevity and image quality. Ideally, it would be best to find a prolab that can make your prints locally for better communication and control of the end results.
I haven't used an online service since there are ample resources here in Salt Lake City. For large Epson Ultrachrome prints on a variety of media, I use Bair Art Editions:
