Printing

Offline backups that do not need batteries



Simple printing things, especially in Sydney, especially for non-designers like me.

Photos

The following list borrows from Chantelle FatMumSlim who reviews photo printing options for Australia.

  • Camera House. FatMumSlim’s pick. It is a reseller for dakis, a turnkey photo printing system. It charges me much money for postage because it wants to do courier delivery for some reason?
  • Officeworks Requires the Flash player plugin, which is a giant obsolete security hole, which it would be wise to uninstall after use. Best to uninstall after use. Moreover the Flash interface is excruciatingly bad. If I want to upload 100 photos I need to press the upload button 100 times. It will happily upload duplicates and bill me twice. Delivery is expensive so I’d better want to pick them up myself.
  • Harvey Norman Also requires Flash. The interface is bad but not quite as bad as officeworks. In fact, it seems to be a slightly more recently updated version of the officeworks software.
  • Photobox
  • Picturepostie
  • Snapfish

Backlit signs

My local backlit printer does small run backlit which is fiddly.

QR codes

OK, QR codes have actually been useful to me.

Stickers

Essential.

Miscellaneous things

Online design app canva will print out the things you design and send them to you. If I never had to understand full-page bleed again I will consider my life richer. I will happily pay their surcharge for this convenience in small runs.
