    I recently had some films processed in High Street 1 hour labs in Australia - and one option that they offered was with a white border - which I rather liked.
    Does any one know if it is possible to get them with borders in the UK?

    can supply. Thanks for the idea for I think I should like borders. I was about to order, so I'll let you know how it goes.
    There is interesting info on the site and I have found them very accommodating and efficient, Janice

    Snappy Snaps (yes, I know it's a crap name, but they're one of the best) offer white borders, the other advantage being you get a full frame print.

    Thanks for this Janice; however am I right in thinking that this service is just for digital images - not film?

    As for the snappy snaps there web address is http://www.snappysnaps.co.uk/ (I did a search on them - unfortunately for me they don't seem to have a postal service and the nearest shop is rather far away!)

    Thanks Emma. Sorry I was confused. The thought of having to go to a local shop really would depress me. I hope you find what you are looking for, Janice

    The only processor that I am aware of, other than hand printed options by pro developers, is ILFORD. In the UK you can by the pre-envelopes over the counter at most good camera shops or cheaper over the internet 7dayshop.com.

    I like the borders too!

    Borders come and borders go.

    We like to have something different. I remember every print having a white border years ago and then suddenly the 'in thing' was borderless prints. Now it seems the white border is making a return.

    In actual fact, the best way to show off a colour print is with a black border but to my knowledge this has never been offered.

    With digital, I like prints that have white borders but a thin black keyline around the image - easy in Photoshop.

    Ooh, David - haven't found how to do the border (keyline) in Photoshop, except by blacking in a selection and can't always get it equal all way round.
