    Thinking about getting some large prints from Elcocolor.com.. because a lot of you praise them.. and apparently they said they've only had ONE return in 10,000 photos or something. Which is pretty nice.

    My question is.. for landscapes and what not.. would you suggest LUSTE or GLOSSY. It seems like GLOSSY takes longer to print. I dont know much about printing.. I just want my poster to look pretty decent and not fake. Can't be $10 for a large poster print.

    I pring Luste and it looks fantastic. they use a different printing process besides InkJet, i think its some kind of metallic setup. someone else will chime in tho.

  4. If you're printing your capitol building shot try a metallic print :bowdown:

    well.. maybe the capital buliding.. i'm gonna edit it some more to make it look better.. but like shots that are very vibrant in colors.. i'm just trying to figure out to print luste, glossy, or metallic.. cause i dont want it to look like shit once it's printed.. the sites dont really give samples or anything.. which kindda sucks.. no descriptions.
     

  6. I gave someone a metallic print before, lets just say it was very nice and they were very pleased :bigthumb:
