Just picked up my print and it looks amazing, perfect gradation of tones.
I ordered my first print from Ilford Lab last Thursday and am delighted with the result! Using your calibration guide and print, and following the advice in the tutorial, my print is exactly what I was hoping for. I uploaded it around Thursday lunchtime and was looking forward to seeing the result sometime next week, so you can imagine my surprise when it arrived at 8:15am the following morning. Now that's what I call service!
Just received. Fantastic job!
Thanks for going the extra mile.
Excellent quality again, the printing makes the images look better . Really quick delivery too.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for processing my daughter's film so quickly.
The feeling you get when prints return from the lab & they look amazing?! Yeh, that. Thanks
Another set of prints back from @ILFORDPhoto exceptional service and quality again.

Everything arrived today and I am very pleased with your service
I recently placed an order from you and just wanted to say a massive thanks.
The prints are great quality, delivered quickly and excellent communication from you as a business.
I'll be definitely using the service again and will be recommending to others.
The photos have already come, so please thank your team. Very satisfied customer. I’m going to Nicaragua next week and need to take them with me. So thanks for prompt attention.
Just wanted to say thank you for the last prints I received, the big print came out really well!
It will be framed and my client will be very happy!
Just received my order. The prints look great! They will stand out in my presentations! Thanks.
Wow guys. Prints received quicker than expected and better that expected. THANKS!
Thanks for my picture. It is now framed and taken pride of place in the dining room
Very impressed with your service and quality of prints.
I have used Ilford products since the 1970’s and was delighted to see that I could get a B&W print on Ilford paper. Over the summer I had taken a shot that looked great in B&W but the local lab’s attempts at printing were distinctly lacklustre.
The Ilford print I had back was excellent and will look fantastic framed.
I can't think of a service that has been better delivered, to an extremely high standard at a very reasonable price.
This was first class from start to finish. Web site was very easy to navigate, very easy to upload images and pricing, process and timescales were all very clear.
The turn around was amazing! I ordered on line on Sunday evening and received the prints on Tuesday morning!
Absolutely no hesitation in recommending this service. Well done to everyone at Ilford.. and thanks!
I really love the results I got from the Kentmere 100 film. Great service from Ilford Lab too! Thank you very much

My prints just arrived and i am speechless! Excellent prints and great professionalism. Thank you very much Lab Team!
I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thanks for printing the images for me. I had a good look through them this morning and I'm absolutely delighted. Once they're framed and mounted I'll send you a photo of the final works.
My order arrived today and I wanted to let you know that I am delighted with both the service and printing. I placed the order on Wednesday, altered the delivery address, and already my prints are with me - very impressive. The prints themselves are perfect and cannot in any way be faulted. I will be returning frequently. Thank you very much.
Thanks for changing the address for me. I received my print and it looks fantastic.
The information on your website, along with the test print you provided have been incredibly helpful.
Would you please thank the technicians for the prints.
They are excellent with a high contrast...
...Thankyou again for the excellent prints.
I've just received my order and wanted to say thanks,
The print is wonderful and the service outstanding,
I just want to thank you for the brilliant service, quick, efficient, very good quality. Just perfect as I like it.
Just want to say Thanks! for my first batch of prints from you, very accurate and well packaged. Very impressed.
Just a quick note to say thanks for the negatives developed. Glad there was something on it and that I got the film type correct (FP4). Just transferred some via a slide scanner and they look brilliant. Certainly bring back memories. I've got a few more films so I'll send another next month. Hey, I might even buy an old analogue Nikon off eBay and take up a new 35mm photo hobby!! LOL
You have done a ruddy good job on these
Thank you prints arrived and are great.
Thank you for wonderful service.
Many thanks for your extremely quick and excellent response.
We are all to often quick to criticise and too slow to show appreciation.
I have no doubt that we will use your service in the future and also highly recommend your service to others.
Just to let you know That my print arrived this morning and, as usual, the quality is outstanding. I am looking forward to seeing it take its place in an upcoming exhibition.
I always used Ilford films and paper. After moving to digital, I tried several online printers, but none of them can match the quality of Ilford.
Stunning. Extremely pleased with the results.
So, once again, may I thank you for all your help and time.
Prints have arrived for my exhibition - soooo pleased with the print quality ( printed by @ILFORDPhoto ) !! pic.twitter.com/Uj8I9MZ7

Hi Team, I sent off 3 x 120 B&W films at the weekend and received them back in the post today (Wed)....Brilliant service, thanks very,very much! :)
Thank the folk in the lab too.
Thank you thank you i am in your debt they are wonderful you have done an excellent job indeed it has bought a much needed smile to my face.
Just to let you know that the 135 film you recently develped, scanned and printed for me is excellent quality.
I did a comparison test with a half dozen rolls sent to various other companies and your quality is so far ahead of the other there's no real point of comparison. One film developed and scanned by a so-called competitor was so scratched it looked gouged, the development was generally mediocre, there were drying marks etc, and the scan quality was lamentable everywhere.
You're not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Just to let you know that I received the reprints in the post this morning. They are of excellent quality and the increased contrast was just what I was looking for.
Thank you very much.
The matte and gloss digital prints came out great. Dedicated silver paper makes a real difference! So I'm ditching my local photolab to develop my digital and Ilford 35mm prints.
My only hope is that you guys have faster delivery to Australia
I am very pleased with your service. The prints are great!
I am extremely happy with the print quality and it looks fantastic in it's frame ( or at least I think so! ).
Thanks for the great service on developing and hi-res scanning the 35mm films that I send up to you!
It’s inspired me to dig out my old twin lens roll film camera to see what the results might be!
Let me take this opportunity to say a big thank-you to the whole team at Ilford Lab.
You always deliver a fantastic, professional & fast service; and are a pleasure to deal with.
Matt , London
I've just used your service to develop my films and scan the negatives to CD. And an excellent service it was.
Ian , Bangladesh
I just wanted to let you know I received my 2 developed Ilford Delta 100 films from your online services. I was absolutely pleased as punch with the results and the quality of the prints. I loved the boxes that you sent them in, very nice and handy touch, liked it very much...
...I wanted to let you know as I have only recently got into 35mm film and will definitely be sending all my film to you for development.
Thank you very much for your excellent service and I cant wait to send of my next rolls to you.
Keep up the good work.
Adrian , Portsmouth
I hope you had a nice weekend. I recieved the prints this morning, Saturday, and would like to thank you and your colleagues for all your work. They look absolutly amazing! The print quality is beautiful, the large prints have come out 1000 times better than I expected and the service I recieved was excellent!
Thank you once again for your help and rest assured I'll continue to use your firm and will recommend your services to my colleagues
Tom , London
I just wanted to drop you a thank you note. The prints arrived last night. Absolutely beautiful. Perfect !!!!
James , London
I love your product. The prints are really really good and having ordered a few times the consistency is great. I try to get all my clients to buy from you...
...I love the way you have done the pricing matrix - easy to find, follow and use and having the ideal sizes in pixels allows me to crop perfectly for each print. Great.
David, Sturton by Stow
...By the way I've ordered some prints from you in the past and I was delighted with the quality.
I received the prints today and as ever they are perfect quality. Thank you so much for brilliant service.
I am totally blown away by these prints...
...I would like to thank the staff at Ilfordphoto for these prints and it is so refreshing to see a team go that extra mile in producing such quality.
This is how XPAN prints should look!-in all their WIDE glory!
Just a quick note to ask you to pass on my thanks to the whole team at Ilford.
I posted four films to Ilford direct last Friday lunchtime. They were processed, printed, boxed copied onto CD and retuned back to my front door yesterday.
The quality of the prints is fantastic (unlike some of my pictures!) and the turnaround and service could not be bettered.
Its great to see companies really going the extra mile to provide a service and I'll definitely be using them again as my confidence in going back to film grows.
So if you could pass on my thanks and let them know that they have a very happy customer it would be much appreciated. Many thanks
Dear Ilford Labs,
My order, placed less than 25hrs ago, arrived this morning. Excellent service.
...I certainly intend to use your printing service again. Regards
Dear Ilford Team,
Just a short note to say, thank you for my recent order.
I was really impressed to receive such quality prints and service.
Thanks again !
Steph, Isle of Wight
This is just a short note to say thank you for the first class service. My photographs arrived this morning; well I have tell you I am well pleased. This is the first time I have used this service and it will not be the last
So please tell the team I am a very happy customer keep up the good work
Thank you for the sample print pack and the .jpeg file. It was quite easy to fine tune my monitor (and even viewing angle) to make sure the two formats corresponded.
I have just recieved my first order of three 9"x6" prints on glossy. I am very happy and v.impressed! Two of them are already in frames and on the wall.
Thanks for the photos, they look superb…….. BW digital photographs on BW digital paper – fantastic. I have been fed up with getting various tones from being printed on colour paper.
Thanks for the test prints! They were really good quality and the delivery was very fast!
At the moment I have a customer who wants to have real black and white prints and I’ll be sending my order soon.
(We suggested that this Scandinavian customer use the ftp server to send the digital files)
Hi – got the pics back last week and am pleased with the results. I will definitely send some more to be developed.
This is the first time I’ve used this service and I am pleased at the efficient way you’ve helped my order through.
Thanks for your help – the photos arrived in time and in good shape.
A couple of weeks ago I sent off a test film to you to sample your developing service. I was very impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the FP4 film. I have had some depressing results before trying you…… Being one of a dwindling species of darkroom enthusiasts, I am very dependent on ILFORD’s films and multigrade papers. So please accept my thanks for your products and support of B&W photography.
I hope you can salvage some shots from this film. It fell into the river when my canoe sank, with me in it, on our boxing day boat race!(NB – being made aware of the situation we approached development with extra care and were able to develop a full set of prints for David!)
This was my first attempt at black and white … I will definitely be experimenting further: thank you for doing such a good job with the printing.
