PRINTING ON THE WEB

DS Colour labs
Inexpensive, high quality colour & mono printing on sizes from 5" x 3.5" (16p) 18" x 12" (£1.25). They use the Fuji Frontier Digital Lab system, a chemical process not inkjet. A fast turn-around, delivery usually within 2 days of upload.

They offer a limited range of papers: gloss, luster and pearl (metalic finish). To get the best results you should download their colour profiles to apply to your images in Photoshop/Elements/Lightroom etc but you can stick with sRGB if you prefer.

Great for colour but exceptional for mono work and their Luster paper for mono is a good choice.

See below: How To… Prepare an image for upload to DSCL.

Moo.com
Great quality, low priced, digitally printed, small run, business cards, greetings cards etc. Check out their Mini Cards, 100 cards for around £10 with a different image printed on each card. Images can also to be directly imported from your Flickr pool.
