    If it's FREE why do they want credit card details :thumbsdow
    Plus there is NO phone number.
    I think it's a German based company.
    Bit to IFFY for me.

    Is it actually free, or do you still have to pay £4.99 for delivery? If you have to pay for delivery, then that explains the need for the card details :)

    Is delivery free? Maybe that's why they want credit card details.... or maybe its a promotion in the hope you'll stay with them?

    Nothing wrong with being German although they seem to have a UK web address ( or at least hosted in the UK)

    PS:posing at the same time as Bursar

    From what I can tell it's £4.95 p&p and from others comments (on another forum) the quality is superb.

    Still a bargain :smashin:

    Will wait for your view Steve :) Have you printed any large prints from photobox? Would be interesting to know of any comparisons if you have.

    I must admit i'm so used to seeing the specs in inches that I didn't realise it was cm at first !

    40x30cm is not usually called "poster size"


    .


    still looks like a good site and price mind you. I can certainly vouch for the great service from Photobox mind you

    aha, i thought it was too good to be true. 40x30 cm is just short of A3 size, and indeed not what is known as a 'poster'

    i've got a fair few of this size, in fact dlab7.com charges you this much (for quantities 5+) anyway, and the prints are excellent quality, and the postage is £1.50 no matter how many tubes they come in, and they get here fast :smashin:

    i never said it was comparable :eek: i was just adding to the discussion that similar sized prints can be had from elsewhere for a similar price. sorry


    crusher75, that doesn't appear to be of the ratio 4:3, be interesting to see what they chop off :lesson:

    Mine has just arrived too.

    Not happy with the colour reproduction and if I had paid for it, it would be going back. There is a nasty green tinge to the right hand side of the image which isn't on the original. I'm guessing the colour space settings were not the same. Ho hum.
