Saal Digital Gallery Print Review

Saal Digital are a leading print company based in Germany offering many types of prints to bring out the best of your digital image to print.  I was offered a chance to have a print of my choice in their wall decors range.  There is a wide range of wall decors on offer through their site.  Some of the types are Alu-Dibond, Acrylic Glass, Alu-Dibond Butlerfinish, PVC Foamboard, Gallery Print and the traditional canvas print.

I decided to choose a gallery print for my offer in a size 30×20 centimetres.  This came to a total of £53.85 including postage, a fair price considering the process involved when putting a gallery print together.

For my print i chose to use an image from Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber located near Cardigan.  This print will be used for personal use only and will not be for sale.

Ordering the Print

There are two ways of ordering a print from Saal Digital.  The first is to order direct from the website via the webshop or download software provided by Saal Digital.  I decided to download the software to see how easy it was to use.  The software is currently available to Windows users.

Next, selecting the image and sizing it up.  As long as you have the the correct dimensions in your image then it should size up nicely with no problems.

The next part is a final look of how your print will look.  This is important as you need to check the image is correctly sized with no borders.

The final chance to check your image is correct before submitting to print.

When all this is done you will have a chance to save the project for later use or ignore it if you intend to use it as a one time print.  Once all the payment details have been submitted its now waiting for the print to arrive.

Arrival of Saal Digital Gallery Print

It took a few days for the print to arrive.  The return address is for their operations in Germany so i am guessing it arrived from here unless they run a separate print operation in the UK.  The package arrived with no problems and was very well secured.

The protection inside the packaging is more than adequate.

I ordered the mounting kit which was supplied with the packaging. These simply stick onto the frame.

The print has a protective film to protect it during transit.  I have left this on at the moment however it will be removed later.  The print is excellent and i am very happy with it.  It is very thick and heavy but durable.  This will last for many years when mounted on a wall.

The colours in the image below do look much warmer, when the print is held to the light it does match the profile i had submitted originally, including the fact i took the image with a warmer temperature.

Summary

The service was excellent by Saal Digital.  It did take a few days for the print to arrive but nothing to complain about.  The quality is also very good.

As for the software it was very easy to use and saves having to go onto the Saal Digital website every time.

I would use them again, one happy customer.
