White­wall, UK

White­wall re­ally spoils you for choice when it comes to brands and styles of photo pa­per

NPhoto - - Gear Zone -

Serv­ing up a feast of photo fin­ish op­tions, White­wall of­fers acrylic, alu­minium, framed prod­ucts, can­vases, photo prints, fine art prints and more. There’s an enor­mous range of some 24,000 li­brary im­ages to choose from, and of course you can upload your own. In con­trast to Lox­ley Colour, the broad choice ex­tends to pa­per types for reg­u­lar photo prints. You can choose be­tween lambda prints on Fuji Crys­tal Archive DP II, or light­jet prints on Ko­dak Pro En­dura, Ko­dak Me­tal­lic, Fuji Flex High Gloss, Il­ford black-and-white pa­pers or old-school Baryta pa­per.

It’s dif­fi­cult to gauge the mer­its of dif­fer­ent pa­pers and pro­cesses by view­ing ex­am­ples on your com­puter screen, but White­wall’s web­site does a very good job of ex­plain­ing the dif­fer­ences. A free sam­ple pack is avail­able, with a £3.95 postage charge. More­over, a wide ar­ray of ICC pro­files is avail­able on the site for free down­load, so you can be con­fi­dent of the re­sults.

Per­for­mance

De­liv­ery takes up to eight work­ing days mainly be­cause, de­spite the UK-based or­der­ing sys­tem, White­wall’s photo prints are cre­ated in Ger­many. Even so, de­liv­ery charges are rea­son­able, start­ing at £3.95, and the qual­ity of pack­ag­ing is ex­cel­lent. Print qual­ity is su­perb on the whole, but White­wall is an ex­pen­sive op­tion for prints less than 24x16 inches in size.
