    EDIT: PLEASE READ!

    CANVAS ORDERS ARE CLOSED. SORRY BRAH'S.


    Ok guys, Here's the deal. By now, most of you know that my work gives me access to a stupid amount of photography equipment. This allows me to do stuff like print whatever I want, whenever I want. I LOVE doing canvas prints, and since I have run out of my own stuff to print, I'm throwing the offer out to OT.

    Details are as follows:

    I can print any size you want. Seriously.

    If you're not looking for a standard size, let me know and we'll sort out a price. The price i'm quoting you guys covers all of my costs + lunch money. I'm really not making bank off of you guys. So I'll have to price out the stretcher bars and such before giving you a price.

    Prices:

    11x14 - $30
    16x20 - $42
    16x24 - $48
    20x30 - $66
    24x36 - $78

    price jump for 20" prints and up is due to the jump I have to make to a larger size canvas roll, which is more expensive per foot.

    also, I charge you actual costs for packing materials and shipping. Can't give you an estimate for that until it goes, and I dont like giving false impressions, so I wont. It's not the cheapest thing ever though, because I pay retail for the materials, and ship through UPS at the UPS store...

    If you're going less than 20x30, along with your choice in size, you need to choose the size of the stretcher bars...

    The stretcher bars are the frame the canvas is stretched around. In the small sizes, you have 2 choices for your thicknesses - 1/2" and 2".

    this is the difference:

    thin (1/2")

    [​IMG]

    thick - 2"

    The process:

    From start to finish, the canvas goes through 3 major steps, which should give you an idea of the time frame you're looking at for me to finish and ship your canvas:

    step 1: resize/upsize, format, print - print must air dry for 24 hours to set.

    step 2: varnish - 3 coats of a semi matte acrylic varnish. makes print waterproof, fingerprint proof, crease resistant, UV protected, and scratch resistant. 4 hours dry between coats, 24 hours to cure before stretching.

    step 3: cutting/stretching - cutting off the extra canvas, then by hand, stretching and mounting the canvas. lots of measuring, stapling, pulling, etc.

    so it takes some time. I'm usually quick, but if I F something up, or something crazy comes up, well...

    disclaimer: I do this for fun. I would never, ever, ever send you something I wouldn't hang on my wall, and I did sell a decent amount of these prints at an art gallery, so i'm good, but i'm seriously not a professional company. I have no automatic tools, everything is by hand. so I've botched some staples, my corners aren't surgically flawless, and the back of the gallery wrap is better left against the wall where people can't see it. But thats why i'm charging what i'm charging.

    wow. this went long. IBallthatshit. sorry.


    PS - email me at [email protected] with requests or questions. my PM box here is always full.

    the 'new beginnings' shot? love that one. I'd love to see it on canvas...

    good question...

    Obviously, better quality images = better prints, but the short answer is no.

    I use Genuine Fractals to enlarge the images to their final size, and it does a badass job in enlarging and keeping detail. I always print one test strip first if theres something i'm not sure of, and if I need to, i have access to ImagePrint, a RIP program that is FLAWLESS at enlarging for prints. I mean i've printed a cellphone pic 36x40 before, that kind of flawless. But imageprint is hooked up the the 44" printer, not the 60", and i LOVE using the 60". So imageprint and the 44" printer is my fallback method.

    ok, im off to bed. see you guys tomorrow.

    correct. they do.

    You wanna come do em for me?

    the samples i've posted start with the grapes, which was the first ever canvas I did, up to some of the latest. So things have changed as they've went forward. However, the corners are by no means perfect.


    Always up for some learning though!!


    Or did you just post this to be your usual cock loving self?

    just curious.

    I would love to use your services. :mamoru: My sister is getting married in April; would the turn around time be this fast? I have an engagement shot I would love to give her.

    Also, how much space do you need around the subject for the wrapping?

    Yeah man, I can definitely have it done and back to you before April. But we should get started quick.

    I don't need any space around the edges, I have a program that stretches the edges just for the wrapping. It comes out really nice.

    Hit me up with an email - [email protected], and we'll get rolling.

    Nice! Allentown isn't far from Philly at all. First beer's on me.
