    Hi all,

    I have a load of pictures that I need to have processed, and I've never done it before. So I need advice as to where to go, costs, quality of service etc.

    How much would I be looking at for say, 11x8 prints or similar (I have a few pics I want to print large aswell as the small ones)?

    Cheers

    11x8 are 3 or 4 pounds. you can get 50 6x4 prints for £3.50 on the high street if you have more than 50 to print.

    Fast & good quality printing . Wouldn't get framed prints from them though , they sent me 3 copies until the frame was straight with no crap under the glass.

    The quality of the prints is superb, I use them for all of my pro stuff and no complaints so far after, about £1k worth of prints.

    I guess it's much cheaper than getting an A4 dye sub printer?

    Dye Sub printers can be quite expensive to run and you're still limited to A4.

    I was going to say photobox, but thought that may be a little dodgy here. Obviously not.

    I use them. They're a little more expensive than other places, but worth it, IMO. Just had a batch of 10*8's done - very good quality :D

    I think you get what you pay for. I used up my credits I got for signing up to get some prints done, and I couldn't fault them.

    I have often wondered on the output of the DA print service.

    Few of my friends bought some of my prints and said they were brilliant quality, I will be buying some of my pics next few weeks from DA to start making up a portfolio and will let you know the quality when they arrive. Going by friends reactions they were well pleased at the quality.

    Plus with DA a 18x12 print that would cost £8 here is under £4 from DA as you can buy your own prints at the base price :D
