This image was colorized a perrywinkle blue color on my monitor.
My print came out olive green.
What color do you see?

It's periwinkle... certainly not olive! Is it a home print, or from a printing service?

definitely blue for me

A professional printer service.

Perhaps a color space issue? Or, what service did you use? Many apply an automatic "enhancement" routine unless you specifically tell them not to (and that option is often hidden someplace silly). It's the sort of thing that's good for folks that just take snapshots with a point & shoot and dump them straight to the print house, but is a royal pain for those of us that edit our photos and want them exactly as we made them.

Edit: typo

I had a lot of prints done and its the only one with obvious color change. about 4 of 20+ prints were a little to the yellow side. Which is why I wondered if it was my system or the printer.

I'd look at this issue too -- the blue toning would be interpreted as a strong color-cast, to be corrected by shifting towards yellow. Your other prints may not have shown an appreciable shift if they contained a fuller range of colors.

I think all on-line printers have some sort of "auto-correct" feature which is ON by default -- make sure you turn it off before submitting your print order.

Exactly. The "enhancement" will be more or less apparent in different pictures depending on how "incorrect" the lab's computer thinks the image is. Be on the look out for lab technology advertised as "Perfect Touch", "VividPics" or anything that sounds like it's going to make your pictures better. As I said it's great for the casual family photographer, but not so good for those of us that take the time to get our photos looking the way we want before we send them off to the printer. In my experience, most places offer the option of turning these features off, but sometimes you have to hunt for it.

Edit: more typos
