Bespoke Printing Service

APC_0157_2

Your images are printed on a state of the art Canon pigment based printer with 12 color Lucia PRO archival pigment inks. Full color, or monochrome black and white, paired with everyday glossy paper, or with high end archival paper, it is the ultimate in high quality pigment based printing.

We offer two classes of printing, standard prints with a nice luster finish, and fine art or giclée prints on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta Satin paper as standard offerings. For custom prints on the paper type of your choice, see the bottom of this page.

Our prints are sold based on the paper sheet size, and you can put as many or as few images on each sheet as you’d like, so for example, you can put 2 5×7 images on a 8.5×11 sheet, or put a really wide 10×20 print with a handful of 4×6 or 5×7 prints on a single 17×22 sheet.

Standard turnaround time is 2-3 days, Custom, Fine Art, and Giclée print turnaround time is 7-14 days depending on the type and size of the order.

If you have an art project or an exhibition coming up that you need prints for we can work with you to meet your needs with personalized service that is meant to go the extra mile. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Ordering Prints

Ordering prints is easy!

Step 1 – Prepare Your Image(s) for Print

Image Resolution

For best results, more resolution is better, though for standard prints, an image that is 300 ppi is fine. For fine art prints, the printer and print driver that we use can make use of as much resolution as you can reasonably send in putting dots down on the substrate, so 300 ppi works and is totally acceptable, but 600 to 1200 ppi is better as it tends to result in smarter placement of the dots on the substrate, which makes the very good image smoothness, that much better.

File Formats

You can send pretty much any image file format, though we strongly recommend 16-bit TIFF files in the ProPhoto colorspace for fine art prints. You can get away with jpegs for most standard prints, especially for the smaller print sizes.

The filename should be: firstname_lastname_uniquenumber.extension

For example: adrian_bacon_001.tif

The unique number is unique to you. If you upload multiple files with the same file name they will be overwritten with the last file you uploaded with that name. All of your uploaded files are stored in a directory unique to your name and phone number, so you can’t affect other users files.

If you want multiple images printed with the same paper and options, then place all the files into a zip file and upload the zip file.

For example: adrian_bacon_001.zip

Soft Proofing

If you want to soft proof your images to see what it will look like on your paper selection, and fix any gamut warnings, you can download ICC profiles from Canon, Hahnemühle, for the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000/PRO-2000/PRO-4000/PRO-6000 series of printers from the paper manufacturer’s websites. For the standard prints, just use Canon’s profile for semi-gloss finish.

Step 2 – Upload Image(s) to Print

The recommended way to send us images is to use the client uploads page
