    I use Photobox or Kodak. Top results.

    But I am totally besoffen at the mo' so I'm not sure my opinion counts for much.

    By the way, besoffen is German for pis......:beer:

    If the only size of print that you want is 10x15 cm, then there is no better way than buying a printer that is specific to this size and paper and inks are available from most supermarkets. When you are more used to doing your own printing, cheaper offers for paper and inks are to be found on the Internet. I have used one supplier for a long time now and having set up an account, re-ordering is a doddle and often there are offers on paper and ink combinations that make prints even cheaper. My supplier delivers next day if orders are received by the early afternoon.
    Printers seem to be getting cheaper all the time and I am sure doing your own will cost less than shop prices. If your photographs are of decent quality from the camera, there is great satisfaction in seeing the results almost as soon as you have taken the shots.

    Hey, I second www.photobox.co.uk, used them loads and very happy with them. Last time I ordered on a thursday evening and prints where with me on Saturday..!!!

    You can now get 6x4 prints from 5p each, if you order enough but even 10p for 1 print! Many years ago I used to run a kodak in store lab and prints where nearer 50-60p each!!

    Try them!

    Another vote for Photobox.
    Prints arrive within 24hours of ordering normally.
    Very good service and quality
