The purpose of this thread is to post links to companies that provide printing (including printing on canvas or other specialty papers) and framing services.

By all means add to this thread if you have recommandations or make your own discoveries.

Western Australia

After visiting one of this photographer's galleries.......

http://www.christianfletcher.com.au/...framephot.html

last week and asking where his prints and canvases were printed I was, at last, delighted to discover a source finally in Western Australia. A PDF price list is available upon request.

We do fine art giclee printing! :-)

Hello everyone!

Just found this forum site and LOVE what I see!

We are a small, family-owned business in Massachusetts. What we lack in size we make up in quality, dedication and service. Being experienced (and working) digital photographers (fully understanding the costs and frustrations that can arise with dealing with printing services), we started investing in the highest quality equipment on which to print our digital images. When other artists and photographers began commenting on the exceptional quality of our prints, we decided to offer fine art giclee printing services and have been stunned at the response. (I guess alot of you have experienced the same frustrations??)

Anyways, you can read up on us and our printing services on our website (click on the link at the top right for the printing services):

http://milkayphoto.home.comcast.net/

In a nutshell, we use a fully color calibrated system and print using RIP software on Epson wide-format inkjet printers (can print 43" wide by virtually any length). The Ultrachrome pigmented inks are rated 80-100 years longevity. We stock all kinds of media from photo papers to fine art papers to PremierArt Water Resistant Canvas.

We STILL get excited seeing new work come out of the printer and love working one-on-one with artists. So much talent out there!

I hope this post isn't inappropriate. This thread asked where one could find fine art printing services so I thought it wouldn't hurt to post.

Take care -

Tracy Milkay

A feature I like about this site is the ability to upload your image and see how it will look in the frame/matte BEFORE you buy.

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

Welcome and thanks fir the link, Fuzquia...

A while back I got very favorable results with a "print on canvas" order from www.mpix.com. They have numerous offerings including canvas stretched on a frame. I have had them do numerous print orders (including black and white and a 30"x24" print, which turned out great) and highly recommend their service.
