    Hi all,
    I want to print 80 photos, which have been optimised for A4.
    Can anyone suggest somewhere please?
    A local store, of a national chain, stated 7 each.
    I thought I'd misheard her 😂


    Thank you in advance

    How about 34p each instead of 7 each, with delivery 2.99? https://www.aldiphotos.co.uk/poster-selection/

    A lot of them seem to relate to delivery time and are complaining that their order hadn't arrived within 10 days (or whatever). If they'd read the information on the site they might have been better prepared for the fact that 'quick' delivery was never on offer. Add together production and delivery times and most of the reviews are based on a failure to read the info at https://www.aldiphotos.co.uk/delivery-times/

    Thank you, I did notice most of negative reviews are for delivery time, I'm not in any immediate rush.
    I, also, noticed a lot about where they were printed.


    Just out of interest, I do have a 'reasonable' printer. is it worth getting some decent photo paper (recommendations?) and doing them myself? These are pictures from a photo shoot, I want to share with family.

    It would really depend on what your reasonable printer is and whether you can bear the cost of the ink you will use. A bog standard HP/Canon/Epson isn't likely to be up to much and the amount of ink you will end up using will make this expensive, but again it will depend on you and how good a quality you are after.

    I have used Boots, they are ok, reasonable quality and start at 0.99 for 10 by 8, 12 x 8 are 1.20

    Do some costings based on cheap/quality photo paper and cheap compatible/branded inks (ebay's as good a starting point as any). I think you'll find it is more expensive to DIY and the end results, unless you have a top-end laser printer, won't be that great.

    I guess you've considered and dismissed the idea of sharing them online with your family?
