Photo gifts - where's best to get them made?


Recommended Posts

I'm guessing this would be lounged as not ED specific, so here I am (not a very frequent lounge poster, be nice!)

I've recently had some photos taken of my family and am planning to use them as gifts to keep grandparents who live overseas happy. Thinking of some photo books and maybe calendars, as well as a canvas for ourselves.

Any recommendations as to which online provider are best to use? Have previously used Truprint and Kodak Gallery, but only for ordering prints, not for photo gifts/canvasses etc. Want something that's going to be decent quality, but don't want to spend an absolute fortune!

Photobox do decent prints, have basic but useful online editing facilities - and you can personalise calendars with your own pics. We've had a few made and they're pretty good - cost less than ?20 - though they usually have offers on around now so might be cheaper if you're lucky.

we've just had our wedding books printed by photobox. they're pretty good - quality was great and the design stage is pretty simple and easy to use online.

i've heard that blurb's books are slightly better quality, but their design stage is more aimed at the pro - you have to design the actual layout (including the fiddly part of lining up images etc) of yr book. time consuming but prob more use in the long run.

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
