With option #1, our clients will work one-on – one with our technician. The technician will be there to assist you with color correction and minor retouching if needed. The technician will help you to profile and prepare your files for printing, operate the printer and assist with trimming and packing up prints. Packing supplies will be for sale on the premises including, print sleeves, cardboard, envelopes and tubes. We will only rent to one client at a time so our clients will have no distractions and their work can be kept private. The room will include a “State of the Art” Mac Work Station equipped with Photo Shop and a Wacom Tablet. There’s a huge work table for viewing and trimming prints. If you come prepared option #1 will provide you with huge savings. This is absolutely the best option for clients printing Exhibitions, Editions or a Large Body of Work. This option will provide huge savings even when printing just a few large prints.
Because of the large variety of papers to print on, we can’t keep them all in stock. With this in mind Option #1 allows our clients to bring their paper of choice. Depending on available space, we will allow our clients to keep their paper on the premises for up to 2 months for reprints and future printing needs.

In addition to the rental fee, Option #1 renters will pay a per-print Ink Fee. Because different papers and different files use different amounts of ink, we will have “2 tiers” of Ink Fees. Fine Art papers and Fiber papers are thick and absorb more ink then photo papers do (matte, luster and glossy) so Tier 1 is for the photo papers and Tier 2 is for the fine art papers.
Ink Fees Tier 1
Ink Fees Tier 2
Ink will be charged at the rate of $2 per sq. ft. for Tier 1 and $3 per sq. in. for Tier 2. We’ve listed prices for all standard sizes if you are printing sizes other then the ones on our price list, you can calculate your ink fee. In order to calculate the number of sq. ft. per print size, first be sure to covert both dimensions into feet (if your size is 4’x6′ then multiply the number of feet by 12 (feet) to 48″x72″).
Once your dimensions are in inches, multiply the width x height and then divide the total by 144.
