I've got local shop that prints at reasonable prices, but they want a small fortune to mount them on what appears to be foamcore board and attach a loop for hanging to the back ....
Any of you do your own mounting? If so, what do you use for the backing and what is your prefered adhesive ?
Does anybody have any thoughts if there is a printer superior to an Epson P800 that will fit on a desk? Perhaps a Canon? Or is Epson is good as I am going to get?
The size will accommodate most of my printing. However, I will probably print half a dozen per year in something like 36 by 48 inch.
FractureMe (fractureme.com) they are located in Gainesville, Florida. They print directly on glass. The glass with the backing to hang the picture is about 9/32 of an inch. The mount allows the photo to be tight against the wall. It has a very clean and minimalists look to it. I get a lot of request for these. You can order a sample to see if you like it before you buy one. I have a business account with them but they routinely run specials where you can get 15 to 25% off. My only issue with the product is that depending on the light you can get glare on the image. I have talked with their R&D department and they are looking into printing on non glare glass. They could not commit to if and when they may offer this as an option.
CPQ (cpq.com)they are located in Cleveland, TN and they have a number of frameless options. They are real easy to work with and if something is not right they will make it right. One that has been very popular and I get a lot of requests for is what hey call a Softwrap. This is a screenshot from their catalog of the Software. The Software Wrap on canvas produces beautiful results.
Very Very Funny!
For Bigger then A3 prints I have a good studio.
Put them next to me on the wall and the one who last for more the 2 days, well .....
Andrew help me out, what is the difference between "colour" and "color".
It makes more sense to buy from Snapfish or other online photo printing services and to buy a laser printer for black and white home use. The last laser printer I bought was a Brother all in one that cost maybe $75 after some gift cards, but normally hovers around $100 if it's on sale. If I were to buy a new set of color and black and white cartridges, each time it would cost maybe $40 anyway.
What a difference! The Epson is much easier to use, and seems to give results that look more like my monitor with less fine tuning. I printed some family photos without bothering to recalibrate my monitor before finalizing for print. The skin tones are much more natural than I was getting with the 9500, and the prints looked great on the first try. We are running out of refrigerator magnets to hold the new grandchildren photos.
The Epson is a somewhat larger, but I don't have to put it within a USB cable's length of my computer as it connects through my network, so I am free to put it out of the way.
I haven't done 13 x 19 sized prints yet: that's up next. Then well try the high speed mode for work illustrations.
