£14.99 (30x20in) www.snapfish.co.uk
Snapfish’s selection of Poster Prints doesn’t include a 60x40cm option, so we stepped up to 30x20in (75x50cm), with a gloss finish. Although pricing is relatively high compared to Photobox and Bob Books, Snapfish regularly has discounts available, and we got 40% off our order. Delivery is also very reasonable at £1.99, and our print arrived in just three working days.
Preparing the print using the Snapfish website takes minimal time, thanks to an intuitive interface that includes plenty of design options, such as layout templates for making collages.
But print quality leaves a lot to be desired. Detail is quite good, as is colour saturation, even if neutral tones and paler green hues lack a little vibrancy when compared to that of some rivals. However, dynamic range is downright dreadful, as shadow areas are far too dark and, in some cases, completely devoid of detail, making the overall print look dull and unattractive.
Big print and well priced if using a discount code; fast, low-cost delivery Cons
Terribly dark shadow areas; no 60x40cm or nearequivalent size option We say A reasonable print ruined by excessively dark shadows Overall score
Welcome to the dark side. Compared to the Bob Books print, the shadow areas here are almost black
