PRINTING PRICES:

Maximum quality fine art printing starting at 15 cents per square inch. 

Maximum quality means we set our printers on the highest performance settings possible. It is a slower process than average printing because it applies the highest ink density and blending possible. We are also printing on actual high-grade fine art papers and canvas. It really can’t get any better. Furthermore, we always research options to ensure you get the best blend of price and quality for these high-grade materials. That is the recommended approach for printing Giclees.

  • Matte Canvas = Durable, low weave texture, heavy, archival, high-quality cotton fine art canvas, includes satin UV coating.
  • Matte Fine Art Paper – Hot Press Rag Paper = Heavy cotton fine art paper, super smooth, velvety rich colors, ideal for almost anything.
  • Matte Textured Fine Art – Cold Press Paper = Heavy cotton blended textured fine art paper, ideal for watercolors but can be used for many other applications.
  • Gloss Metallic Paper = metallic iridescent quality.

Production-grade printing starting at 10 cents per square inch.

Production-grade printing also uses archival materials and inks and is certainly built to last. But when you are looking for something more price-driven, this production-grade printing is the solution. We set the printers to be faster and use as little ink as possible without compromising the stunning beauty of the printing capability. This will cover everything from cost-driven giclee printing and photography to various commercial printing needs.

  • Matte Polyester Canvas = Durable, lightweight, high-quality polyester fine art canvas, includes satin UV coating.
  • Matte Premium Paper = lighter weight than our max quality materials, brilliant white, and archival.
  • Satin Medium Luster Paper = standard photo paper, medium satin finish, slight tooth.
  • Gloss Paper = standard photo paper, very smooth, high gloss.
  • Wall Paper and Mural Paper = Dry hung, perfect for large scale printing on walls, dimensionally stable, matte material, durable, safe for public areas, safe to touch, easy to clean, includes rugged satin UV coating (does not include installation).
  • Semi-Permanent Removable Wallpaper and Mural Paper = perfect for large-scale printing on walls or things you need to remove, easy to remove, won’t damage walls, won’t come off until you take it off, matte textile texture.

HOW TO FIGURE SQUARE INCHES

  • First, measure in inches.
  • Second, multiply length times width = Square Inches.
    • For example, 20″ x 16″ = 320 square inches (eligible for 10% off)
  • Lastly, add 3″ to overall size when figuring prices for gallery wraps on canvas (image continues around the edge).

 

TURNAROUND TIME: Wait times for printing usually range between 3-5 business days. In some cases, the printing is faster and with others, it is slower. If you have a target date, let us know ahead of time. We do everything in our power to help meet your deadlines.

One proof will be provided free of cost or shipping charges. The proof will be printed on any one of our standard papers or canvas. Any additional proof will cost $3.20.

Delivering Your Print Ready Digital Files

Are you unsure what to do with the files? How to save them? Or even the current lingo? Please simply give us a call and we will walk you through any questions and confusion. If you are already familiar with the process and have correctly saved your files, please give us your JPG, TIFF, or PSD. Make sure it is saved at the final print size and at 300 dpi (at least). Please deliver the files to our location on a flash drive, CD, etc. However, our preferred method of receiving files is through Dropbox, an online file-transferring platform. 

High-Quality Digital Scanning (300 dpi)

We offer digital scanning services in Franklin, TN and beyond. Scanning prices are based on size. The pricing includes high-resolution scanning (300 dpi), file setup, color mastering, and a printed 4″×8″ proof. We can scan documents, paintings, drawings, watercolors, photos, negatives, and slides.

NOTE: Our in-house scanning service includes a color-adjustment service. We provide you with a color-adjusted master file from your scanned artwork or film. This process includes working with you directly to ensure quality and satisfaction. We are sometimes limited by technology. However, we pride ourselves on our ability to consistently provide a superb match throughout the image.  

Most scans print best when captured at 300 dpi. In some cases, we can scan larger. However, 300dpi is not always necessary. If you are unsure about your item, call us directly and we will discuss the best option for you.

Use the following chart to determine your scan price. Measurements are considered any size up to the measurements displayed. For example, 10″×24″ would fall into the 12″×30″ range of the grid ($50). For questions, call us at 615-815-6015.

INCHES 12″ 20″ 30″ 40″
16″ $25 $50 $75 $100
30″ $50 $100 $150 $200
45″ $75 $150 $225 $300

We offer photo enlargement services. Pick any photo and enlarge it!  We can take any art or photo (digital, printed, or painted) and enlarge it up to 400%. Ours is a special process that preserves pixel information and helps prevent “digital noise” you commonly get from enlarging a print. We can enhance photos to make colors richer, eliminate red eyes, fix scars or blemishes, or just make something really pop.

We can address any of these items individually for $15 while working in 15-minute increments. (Print prices apply according to size. Call 615-815-6015 for details.) Digital photo enlargements, photo enhancements, and minor color edits usually take approximately 15 minutes each. So if you’d like one or any combination of edits listed above, we will give you an estimate ahead of time regarding how long your custom edits will take so that you will not be surprised by the price.

Pricing based on individual size. Please call 615-815-6015 or email for pricing.

STRETCHING

We offer canvas stretching services. Stretching refers to the process by which canvas is stretched around a ridged wooden frame structure to render the final image tight and able to hang or be framed. A “gallery wrap” involves the same process. However, the image wraps around the side of a thicker stretcher bar. This provides a good clean look and the perfect alternative to framing. Gallery wrapped images can be hung on the wall as they are. But there are many options for framing as well.

AVAILABLE STRETCHING

  • Standard 
    • Designed to go in a frame.
    • This is usually 1/2″ deep, but we also offer a 1″ deep for larger items.
    • Staples go on the side edge and has a low profile which a picture frame would conceal.
  • Gallery wrap
    • This is used when the image wraps around the edge of the stretcher frame.
    • Standard depth is 1-1/2″ but we also offer a 2″-deep style for large items.

Stretcher bar frames are all custom and we advise that you call to request a specific size for exact pricing. We do not need to adhere to any standard measurements. Nevertheless, here are a few standard sizes in the gallery wrap stretcher to give you an example of an approximate price range:

  • 11×14=$28.68
  • 16×20=$42.00
  • 20×30=$61.53
  • 30×40=$101.75
  • 36×48=$135.04

NOTE: Prices are retail and pre-tax amounts. These prices are for basic reference only, but we can make any size you require. Simply be aware that size does affect pricing. 

Customers ordering in bulk or for the purpose of resale (e.g., commercial applications, professional photographers, artists) may be eligible for discounted services. This is subjective, so give us a call and let’s discuss your needs.

DRY MOUNTING

We offer dry mounting services in Nashville, Franklin, and beyond. Dry mounting refers to the process by which an image (paper or canvas) is permanently fixed to another surface. In our case, we dry mount images on foam board which gives the image a nice, flat appearance and stronger backing. This allows for it to be matted and/or framed. We do this at a custom rate, but size does affect the price.  We can mount any image up to 40″×60″. Prices range from approximately $8.00 to $64.00.
