I looked and it appears they use 1/4'' which is cool, but I wish they had a 1/2''-1'' option. I like the chunkier look.
So I'm set to order this:
I'm going to get it BIG, probably 32x28 or 40x60ish.
Thinking about canvas vs. gatorboard, vs print. I don't want to frame it, is the gatorboard nice enough to just hang on it's own and look good? I'm tempted to do that rather than a canvas for something different.
Standouts look good but I always worry about damaging them if I ever need to move them. I go with canvas for everything and another reason is it's cheaper AND it hides a lack of resolution better. For me I do the biggest canvases cgproprints does then I put a solid black edge on it instead of a wrap as I think it looks a bit cleaner.
Nice shot BTW.
My printer has been out of action for a couple months as my home workstation was ripped apart. Got some new paper in yesterday so finally put everything back together and printed off some test shots.
Nothing makes me want to take pictures like printing things. Why do I forget this?
Oh, and the other reason to print things:
The mother-in-law decided she wanted another set of the Christmas pics and so she took them off of Facebook and had them printed at the drug store. My wife saw them and brought one back for me to see how butchered they were. My lord. White balance futzed with, recropped and stretched and printed on pebbly tissue paper.
Look, I try not to be precious about my pics but I do work on them and try to do a good job. When I see that... well, I wasn't happy. I printed another full set for her and told her to burn the other ones and explained that if she did that again I'd buy her grandchildren motorbikes and skydiving lessons.
nice Dave. And agreed Andy, I need to get some prints going again soon. I'm thinking we need some new small canvases of the kids.
Got a bunch of 4x6s to make more cards. 8 pack of these:
for a customer. Also got 12 others to make a "Holiday Cape Cod Greeting Card Set" thing for Etsy for the holidays. Got a nice gift box from Photographer's edge as well and it looks pretty snazzy.
I had a customer order a 40"x60" canvas of one of my boston skyline images. I got a good deal from COD on this:
I was a little worried about the quality of the print at that size, as this is a cropped 16MP file from my D7000 but it looks great.
nice dude, that's HUGE!!!
rad shot, the people are a tiny detail I didn't even notice until you mentioned it. Nice.
Sounds a lot like Iceland. /
Great mix of and today.
A customer ordered a 24x36" canvas of this lupine image from a few years back. I've never printed it before and it looks AWESOME. Then, as I was showing someone how awesome it was I dropped it on my desk and almost broke it in half and had to order a second for the customer.
and yeah, I just ordered 13 canvases for the house from our iceland trip and finished hanging them this weekend.
I printed 3 different shots of the Disney castle I had from the last few trips and put them in a tryptic frame and hung it. Although, they were only 4x6. It looks pretty good. My Canon Pixma is really awesome in printing borderless. My older HP Photosmart could not touch the IQ of the Canon.
Stupidity angers me.
If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.
