I started using Colorworld for my wedding albums over a year ago and found the level of service they supply very high and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Being very satisfied with my albums I decided to let Colorworld do all my schools printing, portraits and wedding reprints.

On contacting Colorworld I was pleasantly surprised by the reception I received. It was great to have my inquiries dealt with so promptly but more importantly, my first order was explained and broken down for me with money-saving ideas and suggestions. I was very impressed with Colorworld’s customer service from the outset and I look forward to my dealings with them in the future.

I have received nothing but excellent service from the team at Colorworld, they have moved heaven and earth to help me. I would recommend them to any photographer.

Philip Ryott

I have returned to photography after 10 years away. Now I’ve been thrown into the digital world I needed to find a digital lab that could take me by the hand on what they needed from me and what I could expect from them. Colorworld has been a Godsend in providing not only competitive printing and easy to use software, but a wealth of knowledge that is easily reachable.

Andy Starkey

With the staff’s help, and the now very easy to use designer pro software I find the whole process a whole lot easier. The staff are very friendly, helpful and patient and I have no hesitation in recommending them to other photographers.

Alex Martin

We are extremely happy with the service from Colorworld, the customer service is always friendly, helpful and polite. They are prompt with deliveries and the quality is very very high. We also use Image Partner which is working without fault with my own site taking all the headache out of showing and ordering with clients that are unable to come and view here.

Amanda Turner

Since using Colorworld for all my wedding work, I have found the service, cost and user support second to none. Deadlines are always met and the albums are perfect. I have and will continue to recommend them to my photographer colleagues.

Colin Whyman

I came across Colorworld Imaging a number of years ago while running a workshop for the MPA. A set of images were produced, and I have to honestly say that in over 20 years within the industry I have never come across such colour precise, consistent and vibrant images. They are also the most friendly and helpful digital lab I have ever come across.


Dave Wall

The products that I have received from Colorworld have been second to none and the speed at which work was turned around was fantastic. Thanks to everyone at Colorworld!

Ian McIntosh

My albums have arrived and the print quality is superlative, exact to what I see on my calibrated monitors. And you even managed to get Emma’s name debossed into the blue silk cover – just beautiful. Thank you so, so much for all your hard work and attention to detail, the service has been terrific.

Lindsay Dobson
