Discussing Your Printing Dilemmas and Decisions Thank you for listening to The Photo Flunky Show. We’re talking about your printing dilemmas and decision in this episode. Photography is rewarding and so is sharing your photos online. However, there is something tactile about holding your photos. Getting your photos in print leads to a lot of decisions, though. Do you want to do it yourself or have a print shop create your prints? Will you print on paper, canvas, metal or something else? Your decision may end up depending upon your needs. Are you selling your images as fine art prints or do you like having a lot of control over your final print? You may prefer creating your own prints. I use a print shop for my print sales. That helps me with quality, speed and shipping. I don’t have the expense of buying equipment or ink. On the other hand, I give up some level of control when I use a print shop. We also talk about alternative printing options, such as photo books and creating products bearing your photos. You can make some paper printers with little expense, or you can crack open your piggy bank to put your photos on aluminum. There’s quite a range of possibilities. Which decision you make ultimately depends upon your needs.

Each provides a high quality product that you can trust, so I’m happy to recommend them. MPIX Artistic Photo Canvas Image Wizards Transcript Click Here to get your FREE transcript of this episode.
