Photographers, Where do you get your lab prints?

I am looking to start selling some of my photos and do not know of a professional printing lab here in Switzerland. I prefer online. It is just too bad the one I use in the States isn't available here!

Re: Photographers, Where do you get your lab prints?

Thanks for the other tips Karl...
I'm a happy smugmug customer but just wanted to let you know that they don't do anything but USD, pay quarterly and only by US cheque which you have to pay some 30chf+ to cash at a Swiss bank

there is a whole number of requests to have a European lab, multiply currencies, direct transfer payment etc. but i doubt it will happen in the next 12 months - which is the only thing stopping me from selling via smugmug too

Cheers
Jase

Thanks Jase,
i know this i am already on there website, and am happy to pay the charges.
There are a few places that do this in Europe, however they are careful about the quality of work they accept. I dont know of any where you can simply post your pictures for sale without approval other than www.deviantart.com

Thanks for the suggestions. I am looking to sell on etsy. I probably will use coloroes.ch but they don't have any info about how to order their prints on special paper..so waiting for the e-mail reply. fingers crossed this works out!
