We always begin with your end goal in mind: the prints. Want quality prints without a lot of fuss, based on your images that are ready to go? No problem, just send us your files and we’ll prepare the prints for you. We can also arrange for you to spend some time with one of our team members to understand the whole process and get the best prints of your work.

Either way, we care about your needs as a photographer or artist. It doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself an amateur, enthusiast, aspiring professional or working pro! Because we understand printing inside out and our focus is on your needs, we can help you in a way that no “push button” operation can do.

  • We’ll help you understand the potential for translating your images to print.
  • If need be, we’ll give you tips to ensure you get the most from your digital files.
  • We’ll help you choose one or more papers that are best for your images.
  • We can work with you on the finished presentation, from providing ideas to producing the finished framed pieces.

The prints we produce are one of the biggest reasons why our customers keep coming back.

The Digital Process

Our digital print process helps us maintain a high level of craftsmanship. We start by looking at every digital file before we print it, ideally, with you, on our calibrated large format NEC monitors, so we’re all on the same page. We’ll look at your images at the print sizes you’re thinking of, the overall tone and colour, and many other quality details. When the prints are made there are no weird surprises compared to how things looked on the screen.

We use professional image editing and printing software including Adobe Photoshop, ColorByte ImagePrint, Phase One Capture One, and X-Rite i1Profiler. We understand the digital tools intimately and know how to use them in a controlled workflow to maintain a high level of colour consistency from screen to print. Since there is as much art involved as there is science, we also know how to use the tools creatively to produce beautiful, expressive prints.

We keep a sharp eye on evolving printing technology. To make your prints, we have several state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printers from Epson and Canon. We print on quality papers from the best paper mills, up to 60″ wide and virtually any practical length. The printer hardware is paired with Canon’s and Epson’s own pigment inks for colour and black & white work, or with Jon Cone designed K7 carbon inks for the ultimate quality B&W prints. The combinations of inks and papers we use are suitable for the best quality work, and meet the standards of purchasers, galleries, and museums worldwide.

If you are up to speed on digital colour management and want to get more dialled in on your part of the process, we can provide you with printing profiles for the media you will print on. This will ensure an accurate soft-proofing environment for your editing, meaning that your digital files are closer to where they need to be when you first bring them in. Confidence in the quality, accuracy, and consistency of our digital printing process is another big reason why our customers print with us.

BEFORE YOU PRINT

Prepping your file:

  1. .Tiff or .psd is preferred, but we can print with most formats.
  2. Keep all layers (in other words, don’t flatten your image) and always leave sharpening on its own layer.
  3. Adobe RGB (1998) or ProPhoto RGB are preferred colour space, but we can work in any colour space.
  4. We can print with either 8 or 16 bit depth.

Important things to remember:

Check for dust spots. Dust spots really suck and will ruin your image. Ask us about our tricks for catching dust spots.

Resist the temptation to over-sharpen. Over-sharpening also sucks. No one likes crunchy images. Remember to sharpen your images at print size, not at capture size. And please, leave this on its layer. Or don’t sharpen. We can do that- just ask.

Check your aspect ratio before you print. We’ll have to crop your 8×12 images in order to make them 8×10. If you’d like us to do that, that’s cool. If you want the ultimate in control, go ahead and crop them before sending them over.
