    Where do you get your photos printed ?

    I have read here and there about the fact that getting your prints done at Harvey Norman, Kmart etc. doesn't generally do justice to the photos, so where do you go to get them done ???

    RGB Digital in QLD via their online service - I have a calibrated IPS monitor - spot on colour!

    Our new POTW sponsor Filmstreet is definitely worth a go! Their special prices are very good.

    I haven't used RGB for prints but I got some iPhone covers that turned out great, but I have seen their prints and they are great. I have used Filmstreet and been very happy with the results.
    I use Canon gear.

    Get in quick for a great deal I'm about to miss http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...EN-8X12-PRINTS
    I think the large retailers are a bit hit and miss. I took advantage of a hard to resist special and found our local Big W did good. Others have said their local Big W did bad.
    If it's to get really important photos printed, then specialist prints would be the go.
    None of that helped at all in Nazz's quest.

    Perhaps have a look at site advertiser Blue Horizon for canvas prints.

    Double A4 ish is A3 or in photographic sizes on a 2:3 ratio about 12" X 18" and many places will be able to accommodate that size.

    ooh thanks for this. I'm always looking out for canvas printers. I have a few, but I like to get the best possible deal when I order.

    I too also use rgb online, and black and white photo. Both fantastic.
    When in melb, I love using bond imaging or bond colour, I can't remember the exact name, but they are in richmond (cremore)

    I used to get my metallic prints done by digitalworks in Melbourne, but the company changed hands and I was not as happy with the service/quality after that. RGB Digital do metallic prints, though I have not used them yet.

    Hi Mark L.

    Thought I'd better clarify this a little better. Any AP member can go ahead and purchase the deal now while it is still current.

    I don't mind if you need to take some time choosing the images you want printed. Even a few weeks wont matter. Just send them when you are ready.

    The deal is still current for another approx. 36 hours.
