How do you print?

Postby abennettphotography » Thu 06 May 2021, 11:40

Wondering if people printed their own prints? If so what printer do you use? If not which service do you use?

Mine is a Canon Pro 10S, I had an Epson 1400 which lasted about 10yrs but decided to Change to Canon which I bought last year after having to wait a long time for. I you are not going to do a reasonable amount of printing I would consider one of the printing firms.

Andy inquired about external printing
" If not which service do you use?"

More recently I have used Sim Lab

I have gone for images with their white border to ensure that I receive the whole image without marginal cropping.
I prefer the Fuji Crystal Archive range with a semi-matt finish rather than full gloss.

COSTS, for example 12 x 9 inches, 305 x 228mm is just £0.57 + VAT

Shipping UK Mainland - Next working day £5.95+VAT. Receive next day if images sent before noon.

So 20 images including next day return postage and packing and VAT works out at ~£1 per image!

I am satisfied with SimLab's quality which you saw in the last 2 print competitions last week.
By the way I have tended to increase the brightness of my images marginally before sending them off.

Good Luck,
