Quality printer

Hi,
This may well have been asked before, apologies if it has.
Somebody has just been on my website and has asked if they can buy one of my photographs. I am not set up to sell but this is an opportunity not to miss and I am thrilled to bits!
I do not have an A3 printer so if they require anything bigger than A4 I will have to use online printer. Does anybody know of a good printer which they have used? I have used Photobox in the past but quality has sometimes been a bit 'iffy' (good technical word there!)
Thanks in advance for your help.
Shirley

Re: Quality printer

I have used Photobox and if there has been a problem they have redone the order, twice in one case.
Nice meeting you at the exhibition.
PS. what photo did they want?

Re: Quality printer

Thanks Pete, I am slowly working through the list of companies.

It was also very nice to meet you Dave, I really enjoyed our chat and meeting your wife, she is a lovely lady. I think she could make a photographer yet - she really liked the 510

The picture wanted is the Whitstable Beach Huts - its in my L panel.

As far as I can see the advantage and disadvantage of using Photobox is that they will deal with printing and P&P without me having to worry about it, the problem is that I have no quality control. I suppose I could get it delivered to me and forward it when I am happy, but that rather defeats the object of using a service that will do it all for you.

Re: Quality printer

Hi Don,
Thank you. The lady decided to go for a 7X5 inch so it was easy for me to print myself. I had an email from her today to say how pleased she was with the result.
I have had some other enquiries today but I am not sure if they will come to anything or what size they would want.

Re: Quality printer

Hi Dave,
Yes I would have loved to have been there but I have other commitments on a Sunday and I have been away for the last two weeks, so I really couldnt be away again.
I am looking forward to seeing some more pictures, those big eyes are irresistable (the seals big eyes I mean). I might try and go there myself sometime.
