    Are there any things you need to look out for? Did you submit the pictures online and have them ship it to you or did you go to a local store and have them do it there? I really want to do this but want to make sure it comes out nicely.

    Maybe they can do a small one as a sample first?

    My good friend prints is photos on masonite or some similar odd thing, very strange process...Only one person is doing it, expensive as fuck but he sells them...detail in the shadows = amazing.


    Not canvas though I'm afraid.

    Yes, and what was points out was a plethora of options a quick google search would give me. it did not say whether they have got it done online nor if they think online is better for the price rather than in person. I was given zero information about what has been done and what is better, just the fact that they "do" "have it online".

    These are the details i'm concerned in, not "how many places that do it"

    Print a 4X6 crop of a big image. The small part that you print will look the same either size.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Yeah Matt, that does make sense...

    I have a few I think I might get done, although not for a month or so. Gotta finish building the wall i'm gonna hang em on before I order them...

    Has anyone here seen a canvas print, or printed one?

    We have some Epson 10000's here at work, and i'm half tempted to give it a shot...

    Oh, and all of the shots I want to print are color slides, or color neg's... Should I just ship them the slide or neg, or scan it here first? I have a Nikon Coolscan 4000.

    but finding someone who will do a 4x6 canvas print would be next to impoosible

    marshalls make a dyi kit for ink jet, but its pretty awful.

    i have a 20x30 from canvasondemand.com

    It turned out great. If I had to re-order I'd get it from whcc though, they're doing 2" gallery wraps now, fuckin bomb i'm sure.
