I would give FinerWorks a look.
http://finerworks.com

I have always been pleased with the results and believe they were one of the first to start offering it as an online service.

Looks like a great site. Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to look into their "multi-panel" offerings.

Welcome to the RP forums. Keep the tips (like this one) coming!

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

I purchased a large oil painting from an art exhibition. It’s a red and yellow moth with a grey shadow figure of a man in a hood behind it. The painting looks old. Any ideas who or what this painting could be about? Also I want to renew this painting, I mean I want to give it a new look. How can I do that? Are there any helpful tips for this? If you know any, plz let me know. Thanks a lot.

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

Can anyone recommend a place to order good quality stationery cards. I printed some of my photos last year on cards for Christmas presents...everyone liked the gift, but I was a little disappointed in the quality of the paper and the photo of the printshop I used.

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

Skydog, I tried something different last Christmas. I laid out two 5 x 7 images back to back adjacent to each other so that together they spanned 10 x 7 inches. I had them printed at a Costco photo lab as glossy and some matte 8 x10 photos on usual Fuji Crystal Archive photo stock. I then cropped and folded in half for high quality cards with photos on front and back of the card that fit the standard envelops made for 5 x 7 cards. On some cards I hand wrote everything inside, on others I ran thru my ink jet to print some fancy text on the inside. They went over really well.
Regards, Murray

Re: Printing, Frame, Framing, Canvas, Mounting, St

We can do cards on photographic paper and Cards on fine art paper but we can not print on the inside of the card, for cards with imprinting on the inside I recommend a company called White House print lab. They do an excellent job. You may need to set up an account with them but they really do a great job. They also have a paper that is a pearlesence paper that is really pretty. You can also check with Mpix.com for there press printing.

You can create your own cards at Zazzle.com. You can customize them any way you want them.
