We can offer you photo quality digital prints at good prices
(from negatives, slides, prints, or digital images)
Photo quality inkjet printers are very affordable now, but if you don't use them enough, you end up having to replace the ink cartridge. Plus, there's more to getting a good print than just sending a digital image to a printer. Getting proper color balance and brightness sometimes takes a few tries, and what if your photos get wet? Inkjet prints are damaged by water, unless they are properly coated. We offer the option of coating the prints with a product made for that purpose. It protects the prints from water damage as well as from UV light to slow down the fading caused by exposure to sunlight.
We currently offer digital printing and will be providing the real thing again, (darkroom, paper, and chemicals), once we get a new darkroom set up. Digital printing will never be the same as real photos.
Here are our digital printing prices:
Your photo must be high enough quality for the print size you want.
