A word from our customers

Sent a roll of 35mm film and it was developed and sent back to me all within 5 working days! So speedy and the prints are absolutely gorgeous. It’s always a gamble using online websites but this turned out amazing and I’ll definitely be using them again. Couldn’t be happier - I highly recommend :)

I sent off my first order with yourselves on Friday and had the digital pictures back yesterday and the prints today. I don’t have a bad word to say and I’m really pleasantly surprised with the whole process as I wasn’t sure how easy it would be and thought it would cost a ridiculous amount! Will definitely be using photo express again. Thank you very much!!

I've used Photo Express to develop my 35mm for years and couldn't be happier with their service. They're prompt, have a multitude of sizes and options to choose from on the order form, and are always quick to take payment and send out my prints. I think they're great value for money, have a great system and I will be using them for the foreseeable future.

I went to Photo Express to get a passport picture taken for a my son who is autistic and he's quite unsettled. But the shop assistant was really helpful and kind. Thankyou for your patience and help.

Kind regards,

Fabulous service. I recently bought a large picture frame from Photo Express, sadly it had a fault on it, so when I took it back they offered to replace it . However, there wasn't another one in stock. They ordered another one for me. They kept me updated throughout.
I also wanted a photo printed and again the service was brilliant, patient, helpful lady got me sorted out. Will certainly be using again.

I wanted to say a huge thank you to Laura. I recently ordered photos remotely and was helped to do this digitally. Laura was so patient, friendly and helpful. The photos were dispatched very promptly and are high quality. I’m delighted with them and the professional, efficient and friendly service provided. I’ll definitely be back for more.

I have used Photo Express for over four years now and they are my favourite film lab in the UK. Extremely fast in their processing and sending back pictures. I can't fault them at all. Some of my favourite photos have been developed by them. If I could give them an 11/10, I would.

Like many others 'down here', we're frankly GOBSMACKED by your overall quality, price, turnround time, contact availability and courtesy guys! We've paid FAR MORE elsewhere for dismal equivalents, lost orders etc. Thank you and LONG MAY PHOTOEXPRESS CONTINUE! (would give SIX stars if we could!)
