The Print Space
£19.70 (60x40cm) www.theprintspace.co.uk
The Print Space is firmly focused on quality, with numerous fine art print options on premium heavyweight textured papers, and four paper choices for more conventional prints. We went for 246gsm Fuji Crystal Archive Gloss paper for parity with the other test prints.
As the priciest print here, and with a hefty £5.22 delivery charge on top, we were expecting printing perfection. This isn’t quite the case though: as with most of the other prints, darker shadows could use a little lift to reveal more detail, while overall sharpness isn’t a match for the WhiteWall print. But we can’t fault The Print Space’s colour accuracy, which resulted in a faithful reproduction of the blue, green and neutral tones of our test image.
In fact, the overall print quality is almost identical to WhiteWall’s, but The Print Space loses out due to its marginally lower print detail, higher costs and slower five-working-day delivery.
Pros Great colour accuracy; decent detail levels and contrast; lots of print options Cons Not quite as sharp as the WhiteWall print, yet costs more We say
There is a lot to like here, but the rather steep price is hard to fully justify Overall score
Accurate colours are The Print Space’s strong suit, with no unpleasant casts visible here
