We offer professional-quality printing at very reasonable cost — eliminating the problems and expense of shipping for distant photographers. Matting and framing are free for the duration of the exhibit if print image area conforms to our standard mat widows. Custom mats are also available at low cost. See our standard mat sizes here. Maximum image size to fit our free mats and frames is 10″x 15″.
All prints are made in a color-controlled environment using Epson printers, Epson UltraChrome inks, Eizo monitors, and custom ICC profiles.
We are currently printing on your choice of three great papers:
Hahnemuhle Fine Art Pearl
A 100% alpha-cellulose paper, very bright white, pearl surface, 285 gsm. While not an archival paper, it has a nice surface and produces beautiful deep blacks. Excellent for black and white or color.
Epson Hot Press Bright
An archival rag, fine art matte surface, bright white, 330gsm. Hot Press Bright does contain brighteners. A really excellent matte paper.
A truly archival rag photo paper with a smooth lustre surface, no brighteners, warmish in color, 310gsm. Very similar to photographic paper in look and feel.
A print on any of these papers is $35. Should your print not sell, you can choose to have your print destroyed, returned, or donated to a hospital or clinic.
Preferred file specifications for printing
We can accept TIFF, PSD, or JPG* files. If possible, please upload a file that is:
—Either TIFF or PSD (Photoshop) file. Layers flattened if applicable.
—Preferred color space: ProPhoto or Adobe RGB. sRGB is acceptable, but not desirable.
—Bit depth: 16 bit preferable. 8 bit acceptable.
—Resolution: in general, send us the largest file you have. It should be at least the dimensions of the final print area at 300 ppi (pixels per inch).
—Maximum file size for upload is 150MB.
—The image should be adjusted as you want it to appear in the final print.
— * The problem with JPGs is that they are compressed files, and they are 8 bit in color depth.
That said, if a JPG is what you have, we can still make a print that we both will be proud of.
Please be sure to upload a file of sufficient resolution, adjusted as you would like it to appear in the print.
Use the link below to log in and order prints, specify mat window, order a custom mat window, and tell us what we should do with the print after the exhibit, should it not sell.
We also do custom printing of portfolios and exhibition prints unrelated to PhotoPlace Gallery.
