Frequently asked questions about retro photo prints
What photos look best as retro photo prints?
You’ve probably got loads of great photos saved on your phone, and retro photo prints are a great way to show off all your faves. The classic square format means retro prints are particularly good for your Instagram photos, as you won’t need to resize any of your selfies, snaps and smiles!
How many photos can I upload?
Retro photo prints are available in packs of 5, 10, or 15, so you’ll just need to decide how many you want! You can upload 1 photo to each individual print.
What paper will my retro photos be printed on?
We understand it’s more than just a photo, it’s your precious memories we’re printing. All online glossy photo prints, lustre photo prints and retro photo prints are printed on high-quality 220gsm Fuji photo paper with premium inks, ensuring you always enjoy a beautiful, professional and long-lasting finish.
Photo enlargements, such as poster printing and photo banners, are printed on thicker, professional-grade 260gsm photo paper.
Do you offer matte photo prints?
No, we don’t currently offer full matte photo prints. However, our lustre photo prints feature a gorgeous matte-like finish that’s not as shiny or reflective as our standard glossy photo prints. Lustre prints are definitely the best option for those looking for a matte finish!
What other photo print sizes do you offer?
It’s important to print your photos in your own way, so we offer a massive selection of print sizes to help you do this. Glossy photo prints and lustre photo prints are all available in 6x4”, 7x5”, 8x6”, 10x8” and 12x8”, while our retro photo prints are all 6x5”.
You can discover a huge range of online photo printing options with us. From super-cute 3x4” mini photo prints to large 30x20” photo poster printing, you can always find exactly the right size for your fave photos. You can also crop your photos when creating your prints online, so it’s always super-easy to find the perfect print size!
Can I order retro photo prints straight from my phone?
Of course! Ordering photo prints from your phone, tablet or computer is super-duper easy. You can quickly upload photos straight from your camera roll, or even add photos directly from your Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive and OneDrive accounts!
Photo printing is even easier on our mobile app, which is now available to download on both iOS and Android. This is the fastest, easiest way for you to print all the amazing photos you’ve got saved on your phone - and you can get 10% off your first app order by using code APP10 at the checkout!
Can I edit my retro photos before ordering?
Yes, you can crop photos and change the photo orientation directly in our online photo printing builder. All other edits (such as adding filters, turning photos black & white, and adding effects) would all need to be done before you upload your photos, as our printing builder is unable to make these edits for you.
Can I add text or clip art to my images?
You can add custom text to retro photo prints and framed photo prints, but this isn’t an option for any of our other standard photo prints. Adding clip art animations also isn’t an option in our photo printing builder, so these would need to be added to your photos separately before you upload them online.
When will I receive my retro photo prints?
You can choose your delivery/collection method during the checkout process. Standard photo prints (6x4”, 7x5”, 8x6”, 10x8”, 12x8”) can be collected in-store just 20 minutes after ordering online or delivered the next working day if ordered before 12pm.
However, delivery and collection times vary between photo print styles and sizes. For example, retro photo prints can be either home delivered or collected in-store within 5 working days, whereas small photo prints (such as wallet and locket prints) are available for 20-minute Click & Collect.
Specific delivery/collection information is displayed clearly on each individual photo print page, so please double-check the available options when choosing the perfect photo printing options.
