I was looking to do a print size of 6 x 8 which they say will cost me 25p and a print size of 10 x 8 at 44p. Both these prices include postage apparently. Can you tell me if I have these prices right? If so, can anyone recommend them and tell me if they are good please?

Many thanks.

I've used them and the quality and service are excellent.

Unless you're talking about a different DS Colour Labs to http://dscolourlabs.co.uk/photo-printing-prices.cfm I can't see either the prices that Louise quotes nor about postage being included.

Other than that, again assuming the same company, then last time I used them the service was first-class as was the quality of the prints - although I see that the price for 16x12s has gone up by a whopping 16p since I last ordered Wink

Always use them nowadays. Their canvas prices are a bit little more than some of their competitors, but worth paying the extra, as the quality is first rate.

Agree with the comments above reference the excellent quality - however, you will definitely pay postage. I got 2 prints (8 x 6) made just before Christmas and the cost for 1st class postage was about 3 (can't remember exactly)

There are several good online printing firms, including DSCL, but for only a few prints the postage & packaging usually costs more than the print itself !
Nothing one can really do about that.

When I used DSCL a couple of years ago I ordered about 10 prints so the p&p per print did not work out too much. ( The p&p was the same as for just one print )

I don't know that if this could be useful, but Tesco do an online order service and pick up in store (i.e no postage costs). Obviously you would need to live close to a major Tesco store.
