Normal price £15!
Be quick though as the offer ends at 12 tonight.
Excellent find Zone! Well done m8!
I'm thinking of opening an account with PhotoBox, are they generally recommended here on the forums?
I've used them and didn't have a problem, nice prints and came the next day.
Handy if you don't have a decent printer!
Thanks - well spotted
Just spent the last hour uploading a few pics, only to find that the checkout system refused to credit me the offer discount before the deadline - nice one Photobox!
Thanks for the heads up, I've been meaning to regiser for a photo service for some time and this thread prompted me into it with 10 blown up photos for £2.50 to boot I also have 30 free credits for registering, do these equate to 30 6x4 prints?
I uploaded my photos around 9ish last night and their site was extremely slow. I uploaded via FTP in the end, which was fine. Still took a while to process the order though but I'm assuming this was due to an increase in site traffic.
Yeah it was slow wasn't it, finally got my ten ordered and will be interested to see what the quality is like, have heard conflicting stories regards the image quality as some say the final print is darker than what is displayed on the monitor and this from people who've calibrated their screens using spyders.
Regarding your print credits Toasty then 30x 6"x4.5", 6"x4" or 5"x3.75 the choice is yours
We had some 30x20 posters done when there was a promotion. but since we started using them the quality has been excellent.
When you sign up and you get your free prints..... they send them out with a calibration photograph. This is handy to get a feel how the image on screen might look. (the corresponding digital file is on website).
I too uploaded files last night. Seemed rude to not take advantage of the offer, though I didn't have anything specific I wanted.
Photobox seem to have monthly deals that are worth keeping an eye on.
For this offer, delivery will probably be a few days, but normally v quick. Even had an email half an hour after placing order saying they have been despatched.
I didn't get the offer in time but I have just registered, they look like a good site for my new 350D pics, thanks for the recommendation.
Just got an email saying my order has been despatched, looking forward to getting them as I'm hoping there will be a nice photo or two worth having framed to give my dear ole mum on mothers day
My thoughts exactly
what date/time did you order Zone ? Im just wondering where I might be in the queue and when might be dispatched.
10pm Tuesday night mate.
hmm I was about the same actually. hopefully they might end up in the post tonight
thanks for reply
I've used them before and they're great...!
and the pics I've ordered have been dispatched and I should get them tonite...however, since it was very short notice I was only able to use some pics I had on my PC of some flowers and they were only about 400*400 pixels and the recommended size for the 10*8inche print is about 900 pixels - so, lets see!!
Have just managed to get to the postoffice to collect my prints (originally tried delivering last Friday so welldone Photobox, very speedy service), just checked them out against the images I uploaded and they are practically identical!!
I'll be using them again thats for sure
yeah mine were great too.
definately a from me
Just ordered 15 odd pics. 7 x 5 in matt for just £4.10p.
Amazing. Nice find Rone
