Snapfish are my top online ordering photo service for basic, every day prints. They often have up to half price sales too for returning customers which is always a plus! The package of prints are always delivered fast and without issue as you proof all the files before you send it.
However this advice is caveated by the fact that I'm not someone that is too bothered by colours of printing (canvas, prints or otherwise). My advice for this is if you want multiple pictures of similar prints (like in a series to be framed, or things that will hang next to each other, then I suggest you get all of these done in the same print run. Printing colours on all surfaces can changes between print runs so this is advice that I would take for all printing services that you order from online (as opposed to in store where they can often match up the colours in front of you).
I recommend this website.
I have been using Snapfish for the last couple of years now and am very happy with their products. Originally recommended to me by a close friend when I asked where she had had her wedding canvas's and photo books printed, trying them out is definitely a decision I don't regret!
Generally speaking I wait till Snapfish has a sale on before purchasing any of their products, but this is more due to my limited budget than the prices being excessively huge. In comparison to other companies I find Snapfish to be very competitive within their market.
I love that I can sit in the comfort of my own home and load my photos, edit any of the images or arrange them how I would like them on a canvas or in photo book. Even better is that you can do all this without the general public walking around you along with the noise and distractions. Its also great that you don't have to go back to the shop to pick up your products once they are printed - something I find a pain when the only good photo shops are on the other side of town.
I mainly use Snapfish for digital prints but have also had canvas's, photo gifts such as calendars and key rings and photo books made. All of these have been of very high quality and better yet are delivered straight to my door ~ now that's service you can't complain about! Normally postage takes approx. a week and has never been any long amount of time that I start to wonder where my ordered products are.
I found this site by typing in print photos into google one year and snapfish popped up. I signed up and got 50 free prints for my first order and that was awesome, gave me time to learn about the site and learn if I liked it or not. I printed off my first 50 photos and waited for them to turn up.
When my photos turned up they came nicely packed in a box that actually fit the photos, this meant my photos didn't go flying all over the place. The box then came in handy to store my photos in once I had sorted them out for my scrapbooking. When ordering bigger sizes they came in little bags and were well handled. I found they were fast at their service and always got my prints and orders within a week which I found very good.
I did do some photo pages they were 8*8 pages and when they arrived I almost cried they were so wrong on so many levels, half of the stuff has been cut off. I rang the service line to get some help on it and asked what happened to my photos, turned out I didn't something wrong but they offered to give me 2 more prints for free once I had it fixed up. They stayed on the phone with me though the whole fixing process and helped me put it though the shopping cart with the free prints. These arrived within a week and when they arrived I was so much happier than I was beforehand.
I felt even though they are online they have amazing service and I have never been let down without a help and fix. I like how the site saves albums of the photos you have uploaded. When you make a photo book you can save it and come back to it later edit and fix it up, add pages and more before printing it. you can check it out and make sure everything is within printing guidelines to make sure it prints well.
I do love using snap fish
A friend of mine had photos of her children blown up onto canvas from a grab one deal. I seen the canvases on her wall and immediately thought I have to get some of those done of my own children. I searched around various prices and was absolutely shocked about how expensive it was to have this done and thought it was just going to be something that was well out of my budget.
I seen a deal advertised on Snapfish's facebook page last year at christmas for 50% off all canvas prints and jumped at the opportunity. With that deal I got two 40x40 canvases for just over $50, so managed to get one done of each of my children. I think I paid from memory $27 each and regularly they were about $60 each so I got a really good deal. Even when not on special Snapfish were one of the best priced around that I could find.
I ordered the prints online and they arrived at my house within the week so it was really fast service and I loved the quality fo the canvases. The image wraps right around the side so you have no ugly bits on the side and they are incredibly easy to hang. I didn't know if the quality of my images would change with such a huge size increase but it didn't alter them at all and I was really impressed.
As a bonus when I joined Snapfish to create the canvas I automatically received 30 free 6x4 digital photo prints so could also get some of our family photos printed at no charge!
