Online gallery offering decent prints

Hi all, another plea for the benefit of your direct experience chaps.

I'd like reccomendations of an online printing service that can host a gallery and allow others to order prints. I'm not looking to make money, just offer prints of a family occasion to those who wish to have a copy. I can then distribute the web address & each person can order their own prints.

First hand experience of a decent print/cost ratio would be great, but if anyone has done some research into it without actually trying a service out, then I'd gladly accept some pointers.

I thought most online printing services would do this.

At least that's the practice for Norwegian services. They store your images for at least one year after your last order, and you can enter the mail addresses for those you wish to have access to your pictures. Works very well.
Best regards
Terry

Well, I opted to try photobox as they have a good range of size options for the 3:2 format, but I'm less than impressed with their resizing algorithms especially with their slideshow option, quite shocking in fact.

The proof will be in the prints of course.

I've used Photobox for prints from time to time, normally for orders sent direct to customers, never had any complaints and had quite a bit of positive feedback from customers - never tried the gallery though

That's some re-assurance at least... Thanks Simon
