Print photo in China

Does anyone know a company in China, like WinkFlash.com or mpix.com, that has an english website?  I need to get a photo printed and sent to a client in China.

Do you mean that you need to send the physical photo?  You could print it here and ship it, maybe.

My son speaks Chinese.  I will ask him about it.  Please give me a few more details - where in China, etc.

Yes Ray, a physical photo.  I can either print it here and ship it or print it over there and ship it.  I'm not sure where in China because the address I have is in Chinese.

You need to get the address translated ( is there a Chinese person you can ask to do this )
Post in China is not handled very carefully, so back it with thick card and send it by courier in bubble wrap packing.
Also many photo labs in China are sub-standard and to find a good one takes local knowlege.
(when I was in Shanghai I visited many labs looking at photo samples before finding true color prints)
That is why I suggest you send it yourself.

Hope this helps.

If you can scan and post the address I may be able to translate it.

However I generally agree with Michael-Best.  You are likely to get better quality if you print here, pack carefully, then ship the picture.

Can the client not print the photo himself?

I'm positive that the 32013 translates to:

Yiwu, Jinhua, Zhejiang
China, 322013

And when I use the translater I get:

 Under Luo Chenlan
 Luo Zhaizi kinnane road 12
 righteousness urumchi Zhejiang Province 322013
 China
 15057931128

I think it's close but don't want to offend anyone.

Glad to see you tried the translator
Since there is a phone number how about a quick phone call to confirm things exchange emails?

Ray PaseurCommented:
Apologies - my son had play practice and did not get home till after 11:00 last night, so he probably hasn't seen my message asking for him to translate.  But it seems like it is OBE anyway.   All the best, over and out, ~Ray
