Can you tell me what Loxleycolour.com is like please? I have some prints that I would like to put on my wall for display. I would like them either 14 or 15 x 10 and 10 x 8 size.

Loxley are very good.
also DS colour labs are worth a look.
Ok I have signed up with Loxley colour and it says £1.44 (10 x 1-9 images.
Does that last bit mean I can have 9 prints at that size, for £1.44?
Don't matter about the mounts or frames as I can pick those up in Salisbury.
DSCL quote 10 x 8 as 50p for 1-99. So I could get between one and 99 copies of a 10 x 8 size? Are these very good please?
The 1-9 bit indicates that EACH PRINT up to a maximum of 9 is priced at £1.44 each.... they generally get cheaper when you order 10 or more of the same print.
I'd order 1 of each from both companies and make your decision from there.
By the way...I've been using Loxleys for over 15 years and have NEVER had a bad print from them. I spend tens of thousands of pounds with them every year, and in all that time I've had only 2 errors - both of which were corrected within 24 hours.
I've been using Peak Imaging for the last year or so and have excellent results from them - cost is on a par and they get the pics back to me in about 2 days....
Peak Imaging, never heard of them are they good please?
I really like them, they were recommended to me by a friend and they have never failed to impress me - they are quality enough for me to be able to sell....
Over the last few years I have used various labs and the ones I tend to use most are:
DS Colour Labs - Great prices for standard prints, but a little more pricey for Fine art prints. Reasonably consistent quality, but I did have a slight concern over a recent batch where 4 or 5 prints (out of 60) had some minor flaws
Loxley - Been using these for larger prints. Don't really like there ordering interface, but the print quality and speed of delivery is very good
Peak Imaging - Used to use these guys all the time, but had some colour matching issues a few year back and have tended to steer clear of them since. There service was always very good.
White Wall - Have been using these for canvases and although a bit pricey, the results are excellent
The Print Space - Somewhat pricey, but did produce some excellent fine art prints for me that have stood up very well to being exhibited quite extensively.
I guess we all have our own view of what is good for us, and any of the above (and plenty of others besides) will no doubt do a perfectly good job.
It's silly to start a new thread so i thought I would add to this one.
I am trying to order a photo through PhotoBox but it keeps saying that "the resolution of your photo is too low to produce the quality photo" how do I correct this please?
This is a pain, have just tried DS Labs but I couldn't see the thumbnails. I did that through Explorer, but on the payment page it kept going through to Chrome. I don't want to use that until I have sorted something out on there.
I had the same problem & couldn't find a way round it so used Pixum instead.
Pixum, what are they like and are they good?
Yep, about on a par with Photobox I'd say. I've placed a few orders with them & they've been fine.
Do they have a website please?
What size should I make the file for printing photo's please?
