Hi all,



This might be an evergreen but a quick search did not dig it up so here goes -



I'm after a good photo printing service in the CBD. Often it seems when I stroll into some random shop to get printing done the actual image quality is worse than my old home inkjet. But I use the inkjet infrequently enough that whenever I do it seems like the cartridges have run out or clogged up or something.



So I'm just after a normal shop where I can get normal 4x6" (etc) prints done at a normal price (or marginal premium) but where the print quality and paper is good.



Trusting someone here will know the wheat from the chaff?

Is there a Warehouse Stationery or Harvey Norman near you? They normally have kiosks. Photo Warehouse (182 Queen St) might have kiosks also. Worth checking camera shops.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I don't think you will ever get that quality with 6x4 size.  I have a A3 inkjet and my A3 are better than lab's 6x4 and I have got them done at the proper places like Photo Warehouse.  The issue I think is that they are using mini lab machines like Fuji Frontiers.  I not sure if they provide 6x4 with a high end printer like a A2 or A1 sized inkjet printer.  PCL Lab in Auckland I think has those equipment.

Warehouse Stationery - Did a couple of test prints at Sylvia Park which were so so but then a whole lot of prints at Albany and those were acceptable for me. No idea of course if the branches have different machines. But those were “close enough is good enough” so I’ll probably try the WS in the CBD for the next lot.

One thing about WS is their “Printicular” app, at first I ignored the assistant there who was trying to get me to use it but tried it out later, basically an app that can take gallery photos and get them printed ahead at WS so you can drop by and pick them up (and pay on pick up). Quite handy, particularly for the likes of grandma who doesn’t want to battle with the complexities of USB sticks etc.
