Possibly OT printing on line from file

I have a couple of photos that I would like a print of. Having looked on line I am confused with all the detail. I simply wish for a good quality colour print from file. Any recommendations please?

Depends on your definition of "good quality" but for a couple of small prints I'd start with a supermarket/shop so as to avoid the P&P. Last time I used Tesco online service but collected in store.

As good as any https://www.photobox.co.uk/
Create an account, log in select "prints" They arrive by post from Guernsey.
An easer and quicker way, put the file on a memory stick or SD card Go to a supermarket or a Timpson key cutting kiosk and use their machine.

On-line I use the Aldi service which is just re-marketing the service from a large centralised photo processing house and possibly the same service as used by other "high street" retailers. You download their software which allows you to upload the file, select the size of the print, type of product (straight forward print on paper to a canvas of the image etc.) and payment.
Although prints may start a 5p each the postage cost may be the bulk of your order for a couple of small prints.

Otherwise, some of larger supermarkets have self service terminals and photo printing facilities. Some Boots (the chemist) stores have kiosks. There are some high street shops specialising is photo printing from a file where they can do the work rather than self service.

IIRC boots or jessops etc will do this as well.
Also some printing companies have high res lasers athat can print on glossy or semi-matt.
Home printing not so great. Res not there, paper not stock, inks can facde...

True, although if you know anyone with a colour laser printer you might be pleasantly surprised, especially if you laminate the print afterwards.

I had extraordinary trouble getting my HP laser jet to do UKIP purples as - well UKIP purple - when rushing out some leaflets.
Then when it ran out and I got a 'clone' magenta cartridge it needed tweaking again to get it rightish,
Pro print shops are calibrated..
So yes, a home laser on glossy is pretty good BUT a pro laser on photoglossy is WAY better.

What do you consider to be a good quality print?
I tend to favour Jessops although I haven't used them for a while.
They print onto Fuji crystal archive paper in a wet process which results in true photographic prints with extremely high stability. I have prints done by them in 2006 and in daily diffuse indoor light exposure that are still almost pristine. Canon inkjet prints done at the same time and as a part of the same display looked fine back then but the magenta and yellow dyes have all but vanished now.
