My test-prints from INPRNT arrived today! I was really impressed with their delivery, so I thought I’d show people exactly what they’re getting when they order a print from me. Here is a picture post describing just that.
I switched print services a while back because I liked the interface of INPRNT, they had a better contract and profit-to-artist system, and several artists I admire are using it (i.e. several prints I have in my “to cover my studio in” folder are from artists who use this service). Since I don’t have the space/facilities to have a printer either in my house or nearby where I live, I have been researching online print services for now.
Things about INPRNT that I would note:
1) I was originally side-eyeing the shipping cost…until I received my actual prints. For one thing, the package is in a very thick envelope (marked FRAGILE) and protected by several layers of cardboard. Inside a few thick layers of cardboard are your prints…wrapped in a clear plastic sleeve taped shut. I am no longer side-eyeing the shipping cost because:
-Even if it had straight-up rained on this envelope for two days, my prints would still be safe
-The prints are ready-to-frame/hang as-is. The previous service I used rolled them up in a tube, which meant that there were a couple of days of flattening the print out with a couple of large books on a flat surface, and worrying about weird curls around the edges.
-The presentation is all the more professional.
Conclusion: Worth it.
2) The paper is nice quality, and the colors are bright where they should be. No complaints there.
3) The prints are color-consistent! I ordered two 12x17 prints of the same work because I wanted to see how they fared with consistency. Both prints appear identical. ((Apologies for the crappy cell phone picture— I do not have a high-falutin’ camera on my phone, to say the least.))
Overall: Very positive, will be happy to order prints from them in the future.
You can order this print and more at my INPRNT shop.
