Can I just take back what I said about photobox. They are terrible!

I did a vistaprint one last week - cost me £5 inc postage. I could have got cheaper postage, but I upgraded for a quicker delivery. I'm sure that's a con though as I've always got them quite quickly. They're not the same quality as photobox, but they're nice enough for Christmas gifts from DS which is my usual purpose of them.

Until now I'd have said photo box...but as they have sent me two orders, wrong, twice, and still haven't sorted it, I'd advise you steer clear. I'll never order from them again!

Oh God as soon as I slag vistaprint off they get super cheap. last year it was mad, something like £5 per calendar, then upload free, VAT (!!) and postage added another £8. Per calendar. Umm, I used tesco in the end and it was a little more expensive than Thursday says, but I will persevere!

An American site called tiny prints is my all time fave for cards/invites/calendars etc. the postage was a bit but I have been really happy with my orders so far!

Photobox are far superior quality to Vistaprint but Vistaprint are the Ryanair of the market so will always be cheaper even with the add-ons.

I paid £11 for Vistaprint for 3 calendars, that was inc postage, tax and upgrading to their nicest paper.

Hi Puff on facebook they are offering free ones and the quality is excellent. No charge for uploading images - I've been getting them for years now!

I also used vista print they sent me an offer for buy five for the price of one plus it was free delivery and as I needed five it was a great deal grin

Truprint / snapfish are 50% off at the mo! I get mine from there every year smile

LittleTyger, I got a flyer about the Vista one - is it really 99p? Is there an extra charge for uploading images or something?

What's the quality like? Think I might go for it smile

Forgot to add how did you get stung at the end? I get mine free and just pay postage? so never more than £3

LittleTyga Wed 05-Dec-12 17:25:53

Vistaprint are excellent and are doing them for 99p at the moment - I get one every year for me and my mum!

I like photobox - good quality on black background and look really nice.

Def google for offers though

Just received 3 from photobox ('twas a Groupon deal so worth checking that out) very impressed with size, quality and speedy delivery

Tesco photo have them half-price at the minute and they're quite nice.

Snapfish pretty good. Code xmas3 will get you money off depending on how much you spend. Postage is on top though at the end.

Also saw in boots a make your own calendar thing, think it was £8 for calendar with slots for normal prints and stickers to add comments.

lucysnowe Wed 05-Dec-12 13:53:27

I made a photo calendar last year with vistaprint and got a bit burned by the extra costs angry. Could anyone recommend a cheaper alternative this year? The photos are the thing so I am not too worried about overall design/paper quality etc... thanks!
