I need some prints which will potentially be used as evidence in the Small Claims Court, ~A4 size. I have considered buying a photo printer, but my previous experience with an Epson is that they clog if not used often, and they are a pain to set up and calibrate. So, where is the best shop to get prints? I assume I produce JPGS at about 200DPI for an A4 print. I recall trying Jessops many years ago and the machine coud not cope with the file sizes I had.

When i need to get extra large prints i use "The Mail Box" and as far as i know they have branches up and down the country.
They can deal with all sizes and types of printing, plus posting.
It's a great shop for these needsWink

Your doing a very good job of putting people off this site. I was hoping that this site would adopt the practices of many american based computer forums where the more experienced user hates new people comming into to their hobby and condemn & make fun of every question newbees ask.

With 6 years Leif's hardly a "newbie", the Search Forum box isn't just there for decoration - it's to stop repeats. Some people can't be bothered to keep repeating themselves so older threads often have more comprehensive answers.

I've used the search box before and not found what I was looking for. I don't mind how many times the same question gets asked (within reason). There are always new people that will benefit from the info, which quite often will have been updated since the last enquiry.

I have to say the same thing, the last few times I've used the search facility it seems to put up topics from years ago that are probably not relevant now.

On another note, does anyone know where I can get good prints made of my husbands botanical drawings? I'm looking for a company that I can send the original to and who do the whole process from start to finish.

Absolutely agree with that. I always end up having to sort them by date with newest first. I've asked before if that can be the default but they've never changed it.

The search finds questions along the lines of "where can I get a wedding album" or "where can I get large prints". I don't need them to be true photo quality, but I do need them to be clear for court use. Longevity will not be an issue. I hope! Hence the reason I asked the question. And shops do change, with some introducing new equipment and/or pricing. I really am looking for a high street shop so I can see the quality is good enough. I guess I will wander round Guildford and see what is available.

It is very very easy for someone to post a put down without thinking.

Whoever you use, send it recorded. I have lost a number of non recorded letters and parcels, but I have never lost a recorded letter.

Hi Sarah, might be worth you having a word with Chris at Prophoto Solutions, they do fine art reproductions and printing. I'm collecting my first print & canvas order from him today so will let you know how they turn out. He's in Brixworth Northants so reasonably local for you.
