Online B/W print service

Postby geocha » Sun Mar 02, 2008 8:19 pm

Hi guys,
I have some b/w photos,most of them portraits but i haven't a good inkjet printer like r2400, B9180 :(
Is there any site or someone that can print my photos for me and send them ?
I don't want to print them on glossy but on matte fineart paper.
Any suggestion and maybe the price?

Thanks a lot!

geocha,how many prints do you want and what sort of size/paper.

Keep in mind that the paper alone will probably cost around £1.50(aprox) and if its say 16x12 maybe up to £2 or £3 for ink....so you will probably not find anyone really willing to print say 16x12 as an example for less than £5, and that would not include a profit margin......

still interested?

I find it hard to believe that B&W is more expensive than colour when using a printing service for digital images. Try going to jessops and ask what they quote you for a normal matte print of your digital B&W photo

The problem with doing that is you are then at the mercey of Jessops instore equiptment. My exerience is their lightjet printers are not well calibrated at all, and are simply not able to produce a neutral B&W print.

You would need a specialist who is able to print with a light jet onto matt B&W paper stock...and there are not all that many of those around.

Geocha,
Bez has all the good gear -- he maybe interested ??

Fortunately I'm a bit far away for him to kick butt if he isn't interested. :wink:

WOW!
Guys,i saw the replies right now!I didn't get any email notification from the forum:(
As i mentioned i would like to make some B/W prints A3 or A3+ for about 15 euros each.I haven't many photos but i think that the best solution is a good printer.
Thank you all for replying me! :wink:

The other issue is that i live in italy :( so... + shipping costs :cry:
