Good quality photo printing

Hullo,

I am interested in finding somewhere in my area (lake Geneva) where I can get good quality prints from digital. There are lots of cheapy places on line, but I am more interested in quality, and size - I have some panorama shots I want blown up pretty big, and not poster quality - something like giclee printing that would do good monochrome.

Any ideas???

Re: Good quality photo printing

Ask at one of the big photo shops in Geneva, eg Photo Hall, about professional labs. It's going to cost you though.

Hi

Thanks Gooner!

Give me a call with your specifics. Would be happy to help out. But,
don't wait too long. I will be out of the net here in Switzerland for (more
or less) 8 weeks starting the last week of August. My contact info at
any one of the sites listed below.

You can figure the price yourself at XXLprint.ch.. look up the
Print Price Calculator under Prices. For framed or mounted,
select Satin Foto Paper.

Re: Good quality photo printing

Superb! Thanks Scott - very reasonable prices. Couldn't get onto the mounting and lamination page. How much for a one metre by 40cm panorama mounted? And would you know where I might get something like this framed?

there's http://www.tricolor.ch , http://www.studio13.ch and http://www.gwerder.ch , all in Zurich. In Kreuzlingen, there is http://www.coloroes.ch (cheaper than the Zurich guys). I can also recommend http://www.whitewall.com , and for monochrome http://www.ilfordlab.com (real prints on real silver gelatin paper), if you do not need mounting.

Mounting and framing: http://www.studio-arte.ch

What does "print" exactly mean on your website? Inkjet, digital offset, Lightjet, Lambda? And you should have someone proofread the site.

Re: Good quality photo printing

You should try www.whitewall.com

They are located in Germany and use the amazing Lambda printers; you can order images that are museum quality, large and laminated with an acrylic layer. Really amazing stuff. All the prints at the Lumas gallery in Zurich are made by whitewall using this process.
