Digital Editing & Cropping

We don't just plug in your media card and print your file. We carefully examine your images to make sure you get the best print possible. This may mean adding a little contrast, saturation or doing other work necessary to assure a good quality product. We invite you to sit with us and watch what we do to help make your images the best they can be.

• Double Weight Matte

Mounting

We can mount any size up to 42" x 96"

Substrates include:

   Standard 1/8" & 3/16" foam board

   1/4" Mighty Core

   3mm PVC board

   2 or 3 point backer boards

 

Laminating

We carry several types of  lamination.

3 mil 43" luster surface - Our most used general purpose lamination.

3 mil 43" gloss surface - Gives images brightness and clarity but also produces glare.

10 mil 38" luster - Heavy duty & durable - suitable for areas that may receive heavy wear.  This product is excellent for laminating photos so as to eliminate glass and is also used for trade show display graphics.

 

Notes:

• We are best suited to laminate pieces larger than 11" x 17". For smaller pieces we recommend using an office supply store.

 

• It is best to allow from 1/4 to 1/2 inch on each side. This means we can accommodate a piece 42-1/2 (37-1/2 for 10 mil) at its widest. Length can vary since it comes off of a roll.

 

• We can laminate only one side at a time and do not encapsulate the edges. Second side lamination doubles the cost.

 

• Lightweight papers like plotter paper, tend to wrinkle in the lamination process. For best results have the piece mounted or use a heavier weight paper.
