Press & Go Canvas

How does the press and go service work? 

Press and Go is exactly what is sounds like: we load up the paper of choice, send your file to the printer and hit the print button.

It is important for the client to be able to set up a canvas, which is easily learned. Once this minimal paper usage canvas is set up you can send it to us many ways, Hightail or direct stick. Make sure to create a canvas size that fits your paper choice: most of our papers are 44″ wide, a few are 42″. Length of the canvas depends on your needs.

For paper selection we are offering Matt, Rag, Glossy and Semi Matt for Press and Go, these selections pretty much cover huge territory, but if you have specific paper need then obviously there will be some back and forth communication with us to set something up.

We are seeing people push the envelope with capture devices (Iphone) and these mirrorless digital capture devices that amaze me each time I open up a file to make a print.

What are the benefits of scanning old family photographs? 

My family’s archives are all stored in a shoebox; I would imagine most people are like us. The small prints and negatives are in some cased over 100 years old.

The prints exhibit dings, creases, smudges basic wear and tear, and the negatives for some odd reason are loose and not in sleeves.
