Our clients say it best ...

I found U-Photo by luck.  It's difficult to find a real photo finishing shop near impossible to find one with superb customer service.  They were very kind to me as I explained my wild idea and mediocre file. They were able to print the picture in great quality to my amateur eyes, however they felt and warned me it was an ok quality. I look forward to using their services again in the future!! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional photo shop!!!

Dave and Fran do fantastic work! They are always a pleasure to work with and never disappoint. They have processed my work for over 20 years and I cannot recommend them highly enough!

I trust the team at U-Photo to handle my orders. Printing is an art and they have it down to a science.

If you are looking for quality on-line printing services, I’d recommend taking a look at U-Photo’s Website and all they have to offer. They provide great customer service, with the prompt and personal attention that’s a refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of larger, more impersonal printing services.

I speak from experience when I tell you Dave Smith is a perfectionist when it comes to printing your photos and fulfilling your photo orders. I used to work for him and I can attest to U-Photo's excellence. Dave and Fran work hard to bring you the highest quality photo work in the biz.

Fast, reliable photo printing, custom flyer design available, friendly staff, great prices.

I've known Dave for many years and have used his photographic services for my visual communication needs. I find that his skills and many years of experience outstanding. Check him out yourself by giving him a call.

Excellent printing as well as customer service.

Beverley Rezneck, Pro Photographer

They provide outstanding customer service and top notch framed products. Dave is a stickler for perfection and will not let a print leave his business looking any but perfect. They are also easy to work with and incredibly nice. Their pricing is also affordable. They are also great teachers. They show you and tell you what and how they are going to work with the project you brought to them. I won't go to anyone else for my printing/framing needs. They are A plus.
