Did you know that we are the only local shop that does scanning, editing, printing, matting, mounting, and framing all at one location? Yep, that’s us! But today we want to focus on art printing in Franklin. And here’s the thing: you don’t have to be an artist to take advantage of these services. I mean, we definitely help a lot of artists and photographers, but we offer all of our services, including art printing and photo printing to everyone.
Recently we posted a blog about using the camera on your smartphone, iPhone or otherwise, to create new pieces of wall art. We literally have customers send us photos from their phones for us to edit (if necessary) and then print on any variety of our fine papers and canvas options. You can also have your pieces printed on traditional paper and have them mounted and framed. We can also print your photos on canvas, then stretch and mount those too. It’s really that easy for you!
Art Printing Features
When we say “art printing,” it also applies to photographs as well. It’s just a generic term for our purposes here. There are a few things to note about printing your artwork from digital files such as a JPEG or even from your smartphone. For more details, see our recent related post about printing. But here are some highlights.
First, let’s talk about size: it matters! Basically, the higher the resolution (meaning the size of your file), the better the quality of your print.
Second, file types: pretty much any kind of file (including JPEG, TIFF, and PSD) will work just fine, as long as the resolution is decent. If you’re unsure, just send it to us and we will check it out for you. We can almost always work some magic with cropping, color correcting, and enhancements. And we’re really good at telling you the largest size print you could safely choose and still retain good quality. Sometimes that may be smaller than you were hoping for. Sometimes it might be much larger. But the choice is yours!
Need to Know
Here’s the basics of what you need to know: we can scan, edit, and print just about anything from nearly any kind of file or hard copy. So, more than just files and iPhone pics, we can also take your photos and artwork that is literally hanging on your wall for scanning and printing. And framing if you want! We are your local printing and framing one-stop-shop! Not sure about something you have? Give us a call at 615-815-6015.
