    there are loads, Snapfish and photobox are possibly the most popular.

    One word of advice though, make sure you print a small copy yourself first to get the brightness correct. I have wasted money in the past because it looks right on my monitor, but the print is darker than I expected. I think with Photobox you can print out a calibration sheet to help get the screen appearance to match the print.

    good luck

    Thanks for the offer Stew.. decided on something a bit bigger than A3

    been online and looked at a few recommended in the review , thanks EJB.. very informative.

    Decided to give Photobox a whirl, recommended by another friend who had her wedding photos done by them..

    one print 18x12" on matt pro paper, cost is £7.49 + p&p £2.99

    will report back on service and quality...

    Photobox report

    As promised.. the report on Photobox ..

    Ordered last Wed, 13th .. still not received the print .

    I called today and using the auto exchange menu for enquires to lost orders , press button this press button that to be finally cut off, I tried three times.. cut off each time.. then I got angry.. :Angry:

    so I called and used the menu choice for placing a new order.. and would you believe .. got through after just one ring .. no surprise there.. I told the rep that I was NOT placing an order as I was still waiting for my first one, could he please explain why a 24hr service had not delivered after five days

    He apologised profusely .. and accepted that this was not acceptable.. and promptly refunded my postage.. £2.99 ..

    I said .. thanks.. but if there is a problem.. why wasn't I informed .. I understand things can be delayed.. but being kept in the dark is not acceptable .. he agreed.

    After the call I had an apologetic email, my postage refunded via Paypal and a customer feedback form to complete .. you can imagine what I wrote.. :RollEyes:
