The order process
The website is quite busy, so it pays to take your time so you don’t miss anything. There are seven frame options in a number of colours, four window mount colours and four glass options at different prices. All uploaded images have the same options applied automatically and only need to be added to the basket individually. If you want different frames etc, apply options to each image and then add to the basket. If you need any extra help there are a number of guides in the FAQ section of the website covering pretty much everything you’ll need to know.
Print quality can’t be faulted, with sharp, colour cast-free results. We tried both Kodak and Fuji C-Type papers, and they both looked great. The print wasn’t mounted as tightly as it could have been, so the paper wasn’t 100% flat – not easy to see on a wall but noticeable when the photo is viewed at an angle.
The general quality of the frames is very good but we were surprised that the back of the frames weren’t sealed like some of the other bespoke services. The fixtures are robust and will support the frame on two screws fixed into a wall.
The ordering process suffered from a cluttered website, so you really have to take your time to make sure everything is as you want it. The visual representation of framed images is a welcome feature. Considering the snail photo’s printing and framing only cost £77, we were very impressed with the quality of the overall product, but would have liked to see flatter prints in the mount. But overall, a very good job.
