Now offering large format digital printing services
We offer large format printing for your photographs and digital art files. Our system is built around the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-2000 24-inch printer utilizing Canon's archival 12-color pigment-ink system.
Papers we currently use include an economy heavyweight coated matte paper, an extra heavyweight bright white fine art matte art paper, RC Premium Luster photographic paper, and a fine art 100% cotton rag photographic paper. Other paper types, including canvas, are being considered. If you have suggestions and needs, please let us know and we will take them into consideration for future purchases.
Our workflow is fully color managed using X-Rite's i1Studio colorimeter to create custom profiles for our displays and the printer.
For best results, customer files should be supplied already color adjusted. For a nominal fee, we can assist customers in achieving proper color balance for their images.
For color critical applications, we also offer proofing. Part of the cost of the proofing work can be credited toward the final job.
Our display and software are set to use Adobe RGB and ProPhoto RGB colorspaces.
1. Is there minimum order?
Yes. We charge for a minimum 240 square inches. This is equivalent to three 8x10 photos.
2. Do you print small jobs?
We can, but the minimum charge applies. For smaller prints and in smaller quantities, we suggest researching other options as they will likely be more cost effective.
3. How does pricing work?
We charge per job, where a job consists of all images to printed at the same time onto a single paper type. (Different paper types constitute separate jobs.) Each job is priced by the total square inches to be printed.
4. Rush jobs?
Expedited service may incur up to a 50% surcharge (e.g., a $30 job may cost $45).
5. Pricing for professional and commercial photographers?
Please contact us to discuss your needs, workflow, and pricing for large and frequent jobs.
6. What file formats are best?
Photoshop PSD, Adobe DNG, or TIFFs are best since they are uncompressed and support 16-bit color depth. We can, however, accept any format that Photoshop reads. Files should be tagged with the appropriate color space, ideally Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB. The sRGB color space is acceptable, but does not offer the gamut of the other color spaces. We prefer that the files are properly sized to 300 dpi for print. We can scale files (reduce or enlarge) to 300 dpi, if necessary.
