INPRNT.com has another shipping sale on right now, they are offering FREE (worthy of all-caps) worldwide shipping this weekend (weekend of June 13, 2014). If you are from anywhere outside the US, you’ll understand why this is such a big deal.
So I’ve added two new prints from Dream Boats, to my shop:
All prints are gallery-quality giclée art prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks. Each art print features a minimum one-inch border. Prints are unframed and unmatted.
I’ve seen the prints myself and the print quality is really excellent. Large prints arrive in a mailing tube, small prints are in a flat, cardboard envelope.
Large prints require some flattening when they are unpacked – carefully unroll them and put them under a few heavy books for a day or so.
Here are some photos of my test prints, packaging, as well as framing examples (all prints are unmatted and unframed) and while they are signed digitally, I do not hand sign prints sold through INPRNT as they do not pass through my hands on their way out:
I ordered a few of my prints from INPRNT.com to see what the quality is like. The print and paper quality is great, I’m really happy with it, and the colour is exactly as I was hoping for. It actually exactly matches earlier prints I had done through Opus.
The only thing that I’m not keen on is the shipping price from the U.S to Canada. It’s reasonable within the States, but to Canada I think it’s way too much ($35!). For that reason, I’d love to find out if there was a good print on demand company in Canada as an alternative. If anyone knows of any please drop me an email or leave a comment.
For now, I’ve chosen to offer the prints at sizes that are as close to the original size. As a result of the size, they come in a mailing tube:
Inside the tube, the prints are wrapped in glassine paper:
Because the paper is thick, they required a bit of flattening:
Following some queries as to if I’d sell prints of some of my illustrations, I’m giving INPRNT.com a try. The following illustrations are now available as gallery-quality giclée prints on 100% cotton rag archival paper, printed with archival inks.
