Discover who does the best A2 prints
Showing off your shots can be tricky, with homemade A4 prints being too small to generate serious wow factor, and quality A3 photo printers often costing an arm and a leg, with a set of ink cartridges taking your fingers and toes as well. But help is at hand, with numerous online printing services that’ll print your photographs on a large scale for a modest outlay.
To find out who is best, we picked a popular print size of 60x40cm (and where this wasn’t available, 24x16in or slightly squarer A2 dimensions were chosen). These sizes give you approximately twice the print area of A3 for plenty of visual impact, but at a reasonable price for the print, its delivery, and potential framing in the future.
The right test image is crucial to separate the best prints from the rest, so we chose an image containing fine detail, vibrant colours, and a wide dynamic range to test highlight and shadow reproduction.
It’s worth noting that the more mass-market printers regularly offer substantial discounts on poster prints, but we’re listing full retail prices here to keep things fair.
