Our “PROFESSIONAL PRINTS” are the pinnacle of what is currently available in photo print production.
Over the years we’ve developed partnerships with industry leaders in equipment, photo paper, chemistry and software to build a workflow that lives up to our extremely high expectations in print production. Our Professional Prints are exclusively produced on the ZBE Chromira ProLab for the highest quality and consistency in chromagenic printing in the industry (referred to as “Digital C Prints”). We print exclusively on Fuji Crystal Archive professional papers and offer Lustre, Gloss, Matte, and Pearl Metallic surfaces.
The unique nature of Professional Prints allow for not only standard sized prints but also unique sizes no other printer can produce. Images can be sized at up to 30 inches wide and up to 100 feet (yes, 100 feet) long. While we may not print many that size we can and do print odd and custom sized prints within the limits listed above. Need a 23 x74 inch print Metallic Pearl print? Yes, we can do it.*
*Custom sizes are billed at $1.20 per lineal inch (5 inch minimum) for lustre, matte or glossy paper and $1.50 per lineal inch for metallic/pearl. Measurements are taken on the short end if total length is under 30 inches, image wider than 30 inches are billed on the long end. Example a 6.75 x 8.75″ print would be 6.75 x 1.20 (1.50) = $8.10 ($10.13) and a 10 x 34″ would be 34 x 1.20 (1.50) = $40.80 ($51.00) respectively (metallic pearl prices in parenthesis). Custom sized files must be submitted sized and ready to print, if we are asked to size images for you we bill Photoshop work at $120.00 per hour (in 10 minute increments).
Professional Prints are output as submitted to us (we do not correct for color or density).
The ideal file set up is as follows:
• Files should be submitted at native camera resolution or sized to print at final output size at 300 ppi
(example: an 13 x 19″ print would be 13 x 300 = 3,900, 19 x 300 = 5,700 [3,900 x 5,700 pixels])
• Our preferred color space is Adobe 1998 RGB (for Professional prints only) or sRGB
• 8 bit color depth
• Our printers are calibrated to 6,000 degrees kelvin
• Gamma 2.0 ~ 2.2
• Monitor luminance should be set between 120 and 140 cd/m^2 for previewing image files.
