Best online printers?
« on: September 03, 2009, 07:57:30 AM »
I've always used Photobox but the last couple of orders had some rather iffy results [I'd checked on 3 different screens to try and get it right my end!]. Who do you recommend?

Best?  The Print Space.

You meant "best at any price", right?

Well - I suppose both. Best at any price for something special. Best on a budget for everyday stuff. 8)

Had some nice results from

Have used photobox but my prints were darker than expected. However, they did a cracking job on a 80cm b+w canvas

For BIG prints at bargain prices I use these http://www.cheapposterprinting.co.uk/pricelist.php
Good quality especially for that price.

Sue, photobox recently started using auto enhancment software in there print processing and it is set on as default, a bad idea in my opinion and not widley known (did you know this) and can have some weird effects on some images, you need to turn it off to get back to the results you are used to getting.

No I was'nt aware of any enhancing there by default so that might be it.Prints being too dark has been my main problem too - i got quite paranoid about lightening everything before uploading.
