    Personal photo printing

    I'm looking for an online solution for photo printing if anyone has any recommendations?

    I have a few wedding pictures I wanted printed anything up to A1 on a variety of materials (photo gloss, matt, canvas etc), so has anyone tried a service and been happy with it?

    I've been looking at photobox.co.uk as an example of the service I am after.

    Looking for a good balance of cost, quality and quick turnaround. Happy to pay that bit more if the quality and service are up to it. Buy cheap, pay twice is not something I warm to.

    TIA

    Have been very impressed with photobox. Got one slightly marked item from them, just sent in a pic of the mark, and it was reprinted, so I ended up with 2

    One of my canvases came out slightly unbalanced colour-wise, but that may be my fault.

    Another recommendation for Photobox here ... I have a few more pics to send them shortly, just need to sort out frames first.

    I've used Snapfish and Photobox and I prefer Snapfish for the prints. I've seen reviews prefer Snapfish too. I recently ordered large acetate prints off them and they were pretty good too.

    I believe if you are on TopCashBack you can get a few quid for signing up too.

    I've never even thought about this - got thousands of pics of my littlun as well as wedding pics from 3 years ago. Taking photobox as an example with their "prints from 5p" thing - is there a min order, admin fees or anything like that? Can't seem to get any useful information directly from the site but it could be the long day I've had clouding my vision :|
