Printing Tips

Did you know that Local Printers are ofter cheaper than places like Walgreens or CVS?

Walgreens Price: 8x10 = $3.99, 11x14 = $11.99

Local Print Shop: 8x10 &11x14 in color = $2 or less (& it is usually cheaper in black & white).

 

How to order at your Local Print Shop:

Bring the PDF file of the image you want to print on an flash drive/USB drive.

Tell the print shop:

1. The size you are printing: 8x10 (unless you specifically asked for a different size).

2. If it is in color or black & white (will affect the cost).

3. What kind of paper you want the image to be printed on. 

 

*Types of Paper:

- Glossy card stock (My personal preference - The glossy finish gives a professional quality, and I love how the colors shine).

- Matte card stock (A great choice if you don’t want or like glare).

 

*You can always ask for a quote, or price estimate, before you print to make sure you are happy with the price.

*Most Local Printing Shops will also cut down your print to the correct size for you.

Framing/Hanging Tips:

 

- Great places to find beautiful, affordable frames are places like Michaels, Hobby Lobby, & Target.

- You can make an 8x10 print feel bigger by getting a larger frame with a mat.

- For a Contemporary Twist, you can use nails/push pins & binder clips to hang your print without needing a frame. Just attach the binder clips to the print and then hang the clips from the push pins or small nails.
