I sometimes order a large print when harvey norman has a sale, seems to be cheapest like that ... but they don't have any sale at the moment -

Any suggestion on cheap large print website to order and deliver/pick up in Christchurch?

Also as a gift (baby portrait) - which one is better - canvas (framed) or other option? What kind of framing is best?

Thanks

elco in the USA has amazing deals if you can wait a few weeks. I use a pro lab that doesn't sell to the public.

snapfish.co.nz usually have one deal or another going at anyone time.
Doesn't seem to be much on large prints at the moment other than 25% off square canvas.
I ordered a photobook of them a few months ago, it was delivered within 4 days.

I've used Canvart before. Very nice people and quality is good. They print on canvas obviously and i'm not sure about any deals floating around.

Pixelpaint frequently has deals through Treat Me. I've just checked, and there is one on today - see http://www.treatme.co.nz/Deal/Wellington/pixelpaint-may14sj

They print on stretched canvas. We've used them a few times and it's always turned out pretty well. Free delivery too, from memory.
