    Exclamation Help! I need help NOW!

    I have a photography exhibition coming up in 3 days... need a place to have my photographs printed.

    A local print shop sucks...the quality just isn't the same when you take it from a regular printer.

    Places like kodak and fujifilm are better but pricy beyond belief. Cmon, there has to be some place in singapore that will not charge 15 dollars per photo(8R)

    Tried Cathay photo, was recommended...those guys don't print apparently.
    Help me outttt
    If I don't have the pictures submitted for developing by today, it will be too late..
    help me help me help me please.... I am begging..pleading... Any place that will give me a good quality print at a reasonable price.

    8R cost about $6. and is ready in 3hours at most fujifilm shops. Think your msg came a day too early? Hahahah..

    Alrite, dont panic. try the neighbourhood again.
    You might wanna tell us roughly where you stay. There are some good shops spread all over singapore if you search the forum. =)

    Where I stay makes no difference... I am near the ECP area, will travel all the way to jurong if I have to...

    anyway, got a PM from a friend suggesting a place called KT digital photo something near chinatown.

    Go to fotohub, 1 cent money, 1 cent goods. Worth it.

    mate a little bit last minute.
    If your monitor isn't calibrated to the printer or something doesn't work out the way it should it will be a mess.
    Sometimes it pays to be a little organised,
    which i am not although would love to be ha

    best of luck though

    of course it pays to be organized...but I was just informed about the exhibition 5 days ago... and I really wanted to participate.

    doing the best i can...
    took care of making a business card for myself,
    printed my photos out in 8R and 12R, took a price list for photo sizes and made an inventory of different types of frames per size...
    Everything seems to be ready...now I just need to select from the 12R ones...which ones to hang on the wall...

    will try miao laan next time.
    Went to the KT photo studio for now. Got my prints done.

    77 S8R shots
    43 S12R shots...

    grand total 504 dollars...

    and my god, they look fantastic. So pretty so pretty... I love this place. Will give miao laan a shot once since it got mentioned twice here...but for now, KT studio gets 5 stars in my book.

    You spent $504 on 120 prints and you're only choosing some for exhibition?
    Why not choose first then print? (Although this is coming too late)

    no no...choosing all...
    only 4-7 will be kept on the wall... I would love to put them all on the wall....but i only have 3meters in width. Sooooo, the rest of the pics will put them in booklets for people to browse through...

    Each booklet will ahve specific pics of the shoot..
    chinatown shots, botanic garden shots...

    also gives a sense of consistency that way... Shows the views the first to last shot of chinatown..stuff like that.

    I think Grace Digital charges something like $3 per 8R.

    Hahaha....I also have ICC profiles for Grace....

    I have used Grace too and they are very experienced as well. In general, I have had great results from KT, Grace and Konota. I have not tried Miao Laan but have heard only good things abut them.
