Sending images for printing

I have been asked to produce some wedding photos and don't print myself so usually upload my photos to a website for printing.
For me it doesn't matter too much what they're like but these need to be good quality and very long lasting. Can anyone recommend a good photo printing company - or equally steer me away from some less good ones.
Thank you

I think it may prove more economical to buy a printer, they are not expensive and what you save in purchasing prints may well pay for the printer. That way you have control over what you print, how you print and when you can deliver. Having the printer at the end of the job for further use would prove to be a bonus.

Proam imaging in Bradford are excellent and reasonable but have a look at their website and follow their instructions.

For large sizes of prints why not try folioprintz. They also have a trade login with discount.

A proper job done & not that expensive....Grin

We find that there is no way we can compete on price or quality by using our own printers, That and having lots of " Dead Money " & " Dead Stock " laying around in the form of Inks & Paper supplies, Is a complete No no finacially.....Sad

The supplied link to Sams delivers high quality on a variety of paper types, They will supply samples on request, They colour match if required.

I suggest you try them with a few samples, Before you consider spending money on printers paper & inks, Because that would be just the start of your " Colour Managed Nightmare " ...Smile

Whatever.....Good luck....Wink

Vince is right. He is referencing the fact that your whole workflow would need - by necessity - to be fully Colour-managed from start to finish if producing your own prints.

This will explain everything...

Again... good luck. Smile
