Prints and Products | What is the difference between your products and a consumer photo product?

I offer two different professional photo products in my store- found within your online gallery.

I’m often asked what the difference is between my products and another product at the store (like printing your image at Costco!) I strive to make sure my clients are informed on everything that pertains to their photos that way you can make the best decision for you and your family.

Why do my prints from {input 1 hr photo lab here} look different than what I see in my gallery?

Often times at consumer labs- your images will turn out different for many reasons. It could be because they do their own adjustments to the images before they print, the printers they use might not be very great quality, they don’t clean the printers often (so you’ll see specks of ink, etc.) or the photo paper they use is cheap.

While not all prints from a consumer lab turn out bad- I have seen some look DRASTICALLY different from how I edited them. At a wedding I photographed a few years ago- they printed one of my images HUGE and displayed it and it honestly made me cringe at the sight of how dark and green tinted it was.

Here are a few examples of what I’m talking about- these fellow photographers have explained everything so well I figured I would pass their posts on:

I’ll be doing my own comparison soon!

So- what do your professional products look like?

Prints

My fine art prints are printed on Kodak Professional Endura Premier Paper, this paper has a Standard Archival Value of 100 years in home display; 200 years in dark storage. Another important thing about my fine art prints is that I have each print (other than wallet size) mounted.  This gives stability to your print at a depth of 50pt. I also have a special coating placed on each print- a fine linen texture.

^ This is how thick the print is- it is not just paper. You can place it in a frame still.

Gallery Wraps

My gallery wraps are stretched canvas mounted on hard, high-density wood fiberboard.  Comes with a hard, sealed finished backing that keeps out dust and guards the walls from getting scratched. Has the tightest corners possible with no bubbles, ripples, or bumps. You can literally press on the front of the gallery wrap and it won’t warp or sag.

So- if you are going to invest your hard earned money into getting some great photos done, I suggest at least printing the images you will be displaying on your walls through my professional lab. You won’t be disappointed!
