Testimonials

"We have always received an excellent, professional and personal service. The frames and products are
always produced to a high quality standard. All deadlines/dispatch dates are met and any queries are dealt
with quickly and efficiently. The Colorworld staff are friendly, informative and are always happy to help"

Rose Sibbons - Snappers Photography Ltd

I’d like to say a big thank you to all the Colorworld staff. Being fairly new to the photography business I had a lot to learn about producing albums and had very basic knowledge of design software. 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 - Alex Martin Photography

I have returned to photography after 10 years away. Now I've been thrown into the digital world I needed to find a 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. Many Thanks. Andy and Jackie from Incadoo.

Andy Starkey - Incadoo

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 - Philip Ryott Photography

When my Irish supplier discontinued their association with Seldex I was forced to look around to find another supplier. 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, suggestions I was not even aware of after four years of ordering Seldex albums from a different company. I was very impressed with Colorworld's customer service from the outset and I look forward to my dealings with them in future.

Lisa Hynes - Lisa Hynes Photography

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 printing ie schools, portraits and wedding reprints. I am also delighted that Colin, their rep for Scotland actually takes the time to visit my studio three or four times a year, which very few companies seem to do nowadays, unless you live in the main cities. If you are a photographer I would thoroughly recommend Colorworld.

Lenny Smith - Studio 8 Photography

I have been very impressed with every aspect of the service given so far at every level, the quality, customer care, value and professionalism has been second to none. I truly feel like a valued customer and would have no hesitation in recommending this team as an asset to any business within the field. Keep up the good work guys.
