Can anyone (preferably someone who has actually used them!) recommend a good lab for getting poster size (36"x24" & larger) prints from Digital files? (need good quality paper & printing also reasonably quick turnround times)
I normally use photobox for most of my stuff but they only seem to go up to 30"x20" (unless I missed something!!)
Any recommendations welcomed, thanks.

I can recommend Peak Imaging (link). I have had a 40 x 30" print from them and loads of 20 x 16"s.
ps. I don't work for them (and don't use them much anymore as I print a lot of smaller sizes now)
I am in the same situation and used www.intelligence-direct.com for 20X16's.
Pro = they were quick and very good value using good quality paper.
Con = they were not 'proper' photo prints but pro inkjet (?) so lacked the punch that I was after. However that was my fault, should have checked first. (they also rolled the prints to post, is that normal?)
So sorry, not really answering your question except to say check the print type first.
If you want a 'proper' photograph then you want a Genesis from www.chromagene.co.uk
any advice as to some more professional lingo that translates to 'proper' photo...so I don't get caught out again?
It's a Lambda based print on Fuji Crystal archive.
and as good as an old Cibachrome. So good that if it isn't a good shot, the print will expose it's weaknesses. I supplied one to a gallery in Italy last year who stuffily informed me that they only took Ciba's....but they took the Genesis without a question.
and yep...rolling is usual for large format prints.
of course, "Lambda based print on Fuji Crystal archive"...it was on the tip of my tongue
Many thanks for the replies Dave, David (Clarence) & Keith, I'll check them all out.
