    Does anyone know of a printing outlet online that goes bigger than 30" x 10" for panoramic prints please?

    Not yet - can't access the site from work to be honest but I'm a member of a couple of photography forums and ezprints do come well recommended.

    Is it a digital print you're doing, what resolution have you got?

    For UK prints the best I've found is 30" accross.

    www.fotoinside.co.uk define one side of the print (the short side) so they may be able to do and *anything* by 8" print but I don't know for certain.

    It looks as though it will be quite expensive after carriage etc.

    One last one - another US one and no mention of overseas shipping but may be worth contacting them

    http://www.perfectposters.com

    Let me know how you get on as I'll probably have a few I want to print at some point!!

    No worries - I'd try some myself but I don't have any panorama's I'm completely happy with at the moment to put on my wall - will hopefully get a couple in Menorca next week !!

    I have used a company called fotoserve.com for printing panoramics. They only have smaller panoramic sizes mentioned in the price list, but they do print 24xany-length prints upon request, so they'd be able to print your panoramics at any size you want. I have mentioned this company on other forums, and used them many times.

    Mike,

    I assume you mean 24" high? So in theory I could have 60 x 24? Wow - that sounds great. Better get a mortgage for the frame though :D

    If you want really big prints try these people;

    http://www.imagegroupuk.com/

    They did a lot of the huge images on the side of buildings at the Commonwealth Games in Manchester and their prices are pretty reasonable too. They can print onto pretty much any sort of material so could do a large print straight onto a piece of 10mm white PVC board that you can mount directly onto your wall.

    I do panoramic printing, but at the moment i'm limited to 10" height (210mm) , but 10m length. The paper becomes an extortionate expense at sizes above that and is so seldom used that I don't buy it.

    Does the image have to be 12" ?

    anyway, take a look at my site, its www.panoprint.com if you'd like to e-mail me the pic to see what size i can get it to, then please feel free. It doesnt cost anything just to check it out :)
