I’ve been getting some requests for prints of my photos and was just wondering what online printing companies you recommend?
I have previously printed some photos with my printer in A4 using photo paper but nowadays I only use cheap ink cartridges and I would prefer to get them professionally printed.

The main ones I found recently are
https://www.simlab.co.uk/
https://dscolourlabs.co.uk/
https://www.digitalab.co.uk/

I ended up using SimLab, submitted on a Monday and delivered on Tuesday, need JPEG that uses sRGB colour space. Very please overall.

I've used DSCL for years, and have always been very happy with the results. I'm currently waiting for some prints coming from Digitalab who are fairly local to me. Everything I've heard and read about them so far is positive. I'll update here once I have the prints.

DSCL are great. Wouldn't use anyone else these days.

I use nothing but photobox for my prints,
Very reasonably priced if you wait for the weekly offers,
They use Fuji lustre archive paper,
15x10 or A4 is my preference and they’re bang on,
No complaints here or from the people whom I’ve given framed prints to.

I've been happy with DSCL but mainly use Whitewall now if I'm sending directly to a buyer (with their white label shipping option - makes it a lot easier). Always had positive feedback

I also had a panoramic acrylic matte photo done via Whitewall.
Very pleased with the results. They were very helpful with advice via email before ordering and the parcel arrived quickly and very well packaged.

Got my first batch of prints from Digitalab, and they are absolutely bang on. Really pleased with them.

I was a DSCL user but I've switched to SIM Lab.
Several of our club members have also switched and like the results.

I used DSCL a couple of years back, ended up having stuff reprinted despite using profiles, never really happy with the results. Used Snapmad quite a bit (very good value, decent print quality) and also that French company who advertised on here for some dibond prints.

How do the likes of Max Spielmann compare?
Just had a 16x12 done of my lad and it doesn’t look particularly sharp (compared to my 4k monitor anyway).

What colour profiles do printing companies use nowadays? sRGB, Adobe1998 etc
