Available Print Media
Choose one of these popular papers to make your photo or art work look its best:
Ultra Premium Photo Luster Paper
Produces the widest range of colors and the densest black for vivid color reproduction. This paper looks most like actual photographs and is a popular standard for most of our photography gallery work.
We have two styles of Fine art textured watercolor paper
We have a heavy, highly textured water color paper made with a base that is 100% cotton rag, buffered and acid free, and coated with Enhanced Matte coating for bright, clear colors. It produces the deepest blacks of any cotton digital paper. The velvet surface is a favorite of photographers and artists alike, offering a unique museum-quality feel. Cathy uses it for one particular photo that she likes because the thick layers of this paper allows her to tear wide edges for a special look.
The thinner watercolor paper has a smoother texture for an extreme matte finish look. It is an economical paper and lies flatter. The colors are a perfect match for artwork, and provides excellent sharpness. Ask to see samples printed in each style of paper.
Premium Giclee Canvas
This paper provides the unique texture of a true fine-art canvas look. This Giclee canvas has an extremely wide color gamut for accurate color reproduction. Combining this with a bright white surface makes the art/image pop off the canvas. This is the ideal canvas for artists looking to reproduce Giclees that are virtually identical to the original.

We can work our magic to provide you with:
Expert color correction, enhancement and just the right touch of sharpening to make your file print as nicely as possible. Extra digital retouching is available at an additional cost if you need a lot of work done to remove flaws, objects in the image, etc.
We offer complete photo restoration and digital manipulation to make the file as close as possible to the way you want it. This would include removing objects from the photo, adding width or height, etc. (Fees for extra retouching are by the hour, and we can provide an estimate, or you can establish a maximum.)
Of prints or slides: High Resolution Scanning service of prints or slides with RGB or CMYK output. (This is one service that we can do well, but our fees are much higher than in the US as we are not set up to do mass scanning. For large numbers of slides to be scanned to digital, we can recommend a company off-shore.) For work that is too large to scan, we will use a photographic technique to produce wonderful results.

If you inadvertently erase images from your media card -- do not take any more photos. Bring the card to us to see if it can be recovered. Fees for recovery from a card up to 4 GB is $50, up to 16 GB is $80.00. Any recovered images will be transfered to a CD or DVD, or to your own media. There is no charge if we cannot recover any images.
CD and DVD burning:
We can burn any digital media to a CD (that holds almost 700 MB) for US$10, or to a DVD for US $15. DVDs hold only about 4.5 GB, so large cards will require several DVDs. You would be better served copying large files to a USB drive.
COMPOSITE FILES FOR PRINTING
Bring in a selection of your photos or art work, or some of the kids drawings, and we will assemble them into your choice of printed material. As you can see from our airport mural we are able to composite many photos together for printing anything from a birthday card to a wall mural.
