Metallic paper works great for many images to enhance the look of the final print. Best with images that have dark and light areas close together to show the dramatic effect of the paper. If you are not sure if this is the correct media please ask. I will look at your image and recommend the correct media. Some images do not improve when printed on metallic paper and I will let you know if it will work for your image. Vibrant colors really pop with this media! Mounted and laminated will make this look amazing when framed.
Print prices – These are photo quality prints – I DO NOT do poster or low quality discount / drug store prints. Needs to go behind glass or in a photo album unless laminated.
Laminate – A clear fine leather coating on top of the photo so the photo is more resistant to scratches and can be handled. (See more information below)
Mount – The photo is mounted on a black high density foam board, when combined with the laminate you can frame without glass (See more information below)
Print sizes – Do you need a 7.5″ x9.25″ print? Are you looking for a panorama print 9″ x 24″? Not a problem. Below are my common size prints BUT I offer all sizes that you can think of. Your best to Email me with your print size and I can give you prices for prints that are not common sizes.
Are you looking for a panorama print? Say something 6″ x 12″ or 10″ x 24″? I can print any size panorama print that you can imagine. The following prices are for some of the panorama print sizes that I offer, I can do many more sizes then are listed below.
Some of the sizes below use a lot of paper to print because of the proportions. A 10″ x 36″ print uses as much paper and laminate as a 24″ x 36″ as I need to print it on 24″ wide paper. If you order two 10″ x 36″ prints I can reduce your price and save you money. Inquire when ordering to see if there is a way to save some money on your panorama printing.
Laminating your metallic paper
Laminating adds a layer of protection to your images so they will resist scratching. Laminated prints can be cleaned with a damp cloth. The added benefit with laminating and then mounting is that you will do not require glass when framing. Not only does this save on framing costs but it also reduces the weight of the framed print.
Unlike the laminating that you have seen for your drivers license and other documents our laminating adds to the look of the image and does not take away.
We use a leather texture laminate. It gives a very high class finish . The best wear in the industry (sets your prints apart from the typical lab print). This laminate is recommended for all photographic papers except fine art.
Foam Board Mounting
When a print is mounted it does a couple things for the image. First the image is protected from bending or creasing. For larger prints this can save from having prints redone from creasing the print while handling it. Second once mounted and laminated it allows the prints to be displayed in frames without glass. Not only can this save a lot in framing costs but without glass the frames are a lot lighter. Plus the images look much richer.
We use a special black foam board to mount on. What makes it so special is that it has triple the density of the cheaper foams board that others use for mounting. This means that if bumped or pushed our foam will not cave in like other foam boards. The weight is close to other boards but the density will amaze you.
