£6.99 (60x40cm) You can choose be­tween two pa­per types of­fered by Bob Books for 60x40cm prints; there’s the £16.99 Fine Art Matte Poster on 305gsm tex­tured pa­per, but we de­cided to test the qual­ity of the bud­get Gloss Pho­to­graphic Poster that uses 248gsm Gloss Fuji Crys­tal Ar­chive Pro Photo Pa­per.

De­spite the low price, first im­pres­sions of the print qual­ity are im­pres­sive. Shad­ows are the bright­est and most ac­cu­rate of the bunch, and this in­stant vis­ual punch is boosted by slightly warm green and yel­low hues, although the lat­ter doesn’t help flat­ter skin tones. Blues are more muted though, and on closer in­spec­tion fine de­tail isn’t quite as crisp as it is in the WhiteWall print, although it’s not a mil­lion miles away.

Five-work­ing-day de­liv­ery is a lit­tle on the slow slide, but costs just £3. Fac­tor in the low print price and our mi­nor colour quib­bles, and you have a print ser­vice that’s a wor­thy re­cip­i­ent of our Great Value award.
