Please could someone advise me. I am holding my first exhibition and do not have a printer, so am looking for a good online pro lab to print my images.
I have read about Giclee and Fuji Crystal Archive DPII Pro prints and wondered if there was much difference in quality. I would prefer to use the latter as they cost less and am trying to keep the cost down as I am going to donate any profits made to charity.
I will be framing A5, A4, A3 and A2 sized prints.

I always thought Giclee was a fancy term for inkjet.
I have had prints done on Fuji Crystal Archive and have been very impressed - I had it done by DS Colour Labs and was very pleased with price, quality and delivery.
spot on Mike
Quote: The word giclée was created by Jack Duganne, a printmaker working at Nash Editions. He wanted a name for the new type of prints they were producing on the IRIS printer, a large-format, high-resolution industrial prepress proofing inkjet printer they had adapted for fine-art printing. He was specifically looking for a word that would not have the negative connotations of "inkjet" or "computer generated". It is based on the French word gicleur, which means "nozzle" (the verb form gicler means "to squirt, spurt, or spray").
I have had good results from these people.
I've always been impressed with DS Colourlabs and Loxley

|Thank you so much for your suggestions, it has been very helpful. I am going to send off a sample print from each lab and decide from there.
