picture printing and framing
September 26, 2008 3:23 AM   Subscribe

UK filter: I'm looking for a printing and framing service.

I want to have a picture printed and framed for a friend but as I live rurally, I can't get to a shop in time to get it done. Does anyone know of a service where you an email them a picture in .jpg or whatever and they print and frame it for you? Google searches tend to bring up high street shop websites.

Any recommendations gratefully received!

They only do 5x7 and 8x10 with a choice of three frames, but everything else I've had printed/made with Photobox has been of great quality and shipped very quickly.

Intelligence Direct. Much cheaper than photobox for anything major. I think they do framing too.

Seconding Photobox. I (and a couple of the guys that I work with) have been quite happy with them.

Probably not directly what you want, but photobloc do this onto canvas, and have brilliant customer services - and you can choose various framing options for the canvas.

Obviously if you're after a framed photo, this isn't so useful, but for anyone in the UK wanting canvas printing - I'd highly recommend them!
