I plan to print about 500 pieces of photos in 4R size, does anyone know where can I get the cheapest price printed on Fujifilm paper? The one near my house (Clementi area) needs 20cents per pc printing on lower quality DNP paper. Thanks.
there's one Konica shop at toa payoh lorong 5 next to the pet shops and opposite a bicycle shop. they print at 15 cents for 4R if u print more than a hundred each time.
i tried their print. decent enuff for me but that was the only time i printed digital, so no basis for comparison. unfortunately, my monitor was rather uncalibrated (until i got my spyder recently), so the results were different from what i edited on the screen.
good enuff for my album la.
just had a look, the paper is "platinum professional paper" not sure if that's ur cup of tea. never heard of it myself.
printing over a hundred takes 2-3 hours. so depends on where u live or u can just go TP hub catch a movie or something.
Went to develop >500 photos at Superior Photo Laboratory, was very disappointed with the outcome of the pictures. Pictures developed are dark and colors are off. Went back to shop and was told "is like that one, what you see on screen will be darker when printed even if your screen is calibrated". Think next time I'll fork out more to have better quality pictures.
well, if you sign up for their "photo happy" member thing, you get 30% off all printing charges (http://www.harveynorman.com.sg/PhotoHappySG.pdf). It comes up to alot of savings, well, i saved quite abit in december. And yes, i think it was about 35cents, but after discount it came to about 20+..
Actually, the varying cost usually equates to different quality. Different fujifilm labs will also produce different results.
I have 2 fujilabs within 2km from my house but i never ever used them testing their print qualities. Scout around and do small number of prints to ascertain quality prior to printing large qualities. The last thing you want is to be blamed for taking lousy pics. =p
you want cheap cheap and no quality, it is so easy to find.
want cheap cheap and good quality? very hard to find.
I rather pay a little more for better quality, don't want in the end have to throw away a few hundreds photo and get it print somewhere else again, wasting time and money. cause it happen a few times before.
