most digilabs able to print up to 12"x18", that is slightly larger than A3.

you can call and check before heading down to the labs

Useful addresses of common photographic equipment/services shops

The price of some of the shops are quite different for some of the sizes (e.g S12R)

Will there be a great different in quality if theres a a gap in price? (S$7)

Have you approached any printing shop in Bras Basah ? I think quite a number of shops can do A3 and even A2 on glossy or matte photo papers.

only 1 printing shop(the fuji photo shop) at Bras Basah print on glossy photo paper and it dont print that big (that time i only asked for S8R).

The biggest size that i asked around from the list above is the Grace Printing @ Sunset way give the optium price ($10 for S12R)

So far if i want A3+ photo printing, i must buy a canon printer and the Pro platium A3+ papers and print myself

the only labs doing photographic printing at Bras Basah Complex is Shalom Colorlab.

other printing shops in that area are either doing inkject or laserjet printing

if you want photographic paper, they only come in inches, to print 12"x18" photos, they have to use a 12" width photographic paper roll.

A3 is 297mmx420mm, and a 12"x18" photo print is 305mmx459mm,
if you want exactly A3, you can simply ask for a 12x18 photo print, than either you pay them to trim it down to A3 or DIY.

otherwise, you can look for other shops to print your photos with inkject or laserjet printing. their stock papers are in A4, A3, A2 or A1 sizes.

The different in price will be considered in term of DPI printed on the photo?

So far the shops are mostly using the fuji color paper

Yes. They dont print it there. It's done at the lab. I think any Fuji outlet will be able to do it.

I've printed 2 recently.

Not much choice for me. Going to town is $10 bucks for fuel and another few more for parking. Add CBD, n 2nd trips to collect, $3 bucks is cheap. Taking the train is better but kills a lot of time.

Don't normally print large pics, but now beginning to do up a few to frame n spruce up the walls.

Was just at Ya Kun.

I chose the matt. They have glossy but not good for framing as they stick to the glass. There is a larger size.

Do remember is done at the main lab, not at the outlet.
