Custom Prints

This page is to help you along the journey from capturing digital images to having a physical print in your hands.  
There are some key things you need to know before moving forward.



The Standard

I use the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-2100, which is Canon’s line of Professional Photo Printers. My printer is a 24” width and use only Original Canon ProGrapf ink and Canon Premium Matte 230gsm paper.

  • I normally print posters at 18x24 however I can print up to 24x36 and panoramas with 24” widths. I can also print smaller prints but we will have to print where we utilize as much as the 24” width as possible. So if you wanted a 11x17, we can put two 11x17 next to each other to maximize paper usage.

  • For a 18x24 inch poster, you would need a high resolution camera such as a Sony a7R III with 42mp to utilize native resolution. However if you have a camera with 24mp, we can stretch out the image but resolution will not be as clean as if it was native. In my experience, you can tell there is a difference up close but if you will be viewing the posters at 4-6 feet away, it is not as easily recognizable.

Full bleed?

One of the ways to combat lower resolution for larger prints is to add a large white border matte. Not only does this keep the resolution more true to its native resolution, but the matte border does add a bit of fine art feels to the photo. In addition, adding the border allows you to keep your original composition of 2:3 and not have to crop into it if you are doing a 18x24, which is a 3:4 ratio. Please be aware of that.

  • Please save your images as a sRGB at 8bit jpg file. You can send me a tiff but the files are large and will take much longer. JPGs look great, save at highest res.

  • To order custom prints, please email cooledcollective@gmail.com with a link to a drop box folder where I can download it. Do not send me the file in the email.
