We're a print company with a twist - it's personal. We take your photographs, and print them onto books, calendars, posters and mugs (to name just a few!). We also store photos, help you share them online, and come up with new ways of doing all things digital. We're in 19 countries across Europe, for more than 27 million people. Which means that wherever you go, you'll probably bump into somebody who knows about us.

    IMHO ….. As you’ve probably infringed the copyright of several of these image makers, it might be a good idea to at least name them……….

  • Kate Mellersh says:

    Yes, you ARE stealing images here. The top image of the bike wheel is mine and can be found originally posted on Flickr in 2008! It’s clearly marked ‘All rights reserved’. It’s posted here incorrectly titled and with a false copyright attribution. This is exceptionally lazy work tracking down image sources, and is basically copyright theft. Please remove this image.
