Canvas printing
« on: June 12, 2013, 04:47:44 PM »
My brother directed me to a nice company for prints, but they don't do canvas printing. Please can someone recommend somewhere I can have them done (UK) at a reasonable price. I'm thinking those tulips need printing in future!

Hi Brenda

I haven't used these yet but they were recommended to my son by another student on the photography course. They appear reasonably cheap but my son has seen examples of work they have done and he is impressed with what he has seen. Check them out;

As said, I've not used them yet but will be giving them a try. I've used Photobox in the past and have lost 'confidence' in them.

I have used DSColourlabs many times for prints and canvas. They are well prices and the quality is spot on.

A must for all canvas art and pro prints, download and use their colour, printer and paper profiles!!

Not to steal the thread, but how about in the US. Anyone care to recommend a good printer?

Thanks

Thanks Dave, Frank and Gordon. I'll plan to print in a few months then I can do a good size one.
I use http://www.theprintspace.co.uk for prints, will be sticking with them unless I have an issue with them (so far so good) :)

Has anyone used Costco for prints? Paper or Canvas?

I'm a card holder and prices seem reasonable especially as there is one local and I can collect prints rather than post. I was wondering what quality is like. Not looking for exhibition quality but good enough to put up on my own wall.

EG Costco price for a canvas 24"x16" = £45  & 12"x16" = £28. Looks like the print is out sourced to MagnoliaSoft but delivered to store for collection.
