    Does anyone on here make their own prints from their work? If so how do you go about it? Matt has aken some gorgeous photo's you see and I would like to do a limited edition run of them but I have no idea how to go about it.
    Many thanks

    We use a company called Snapfish to print our digital photos, you could use them, they are reasonable, and their service and quality are excellent. Is this what you mean?

      Kind of! I also paint - not very well - but i would like to do prints of the work I've done there too - I'm assuming I would have to scan the pics first and then print them out? What kind of paper should I be using?

        If there going to be sold as lmt editions of your paintings you need them done professionaly..and they really need to be giclees not prints ~ depends on were and how there going to be sold and what price.

        If your just doing postcards or A4s and selling them low then you could just have your work printed as a photograph.

        I guess you need to decide on the above..hope this helps

            Your images are generated from high resolution digital scans and printed with archival quality ink onto canvas, fine art, and photo-base paper.

            This is the best way to copy your work and sell on a professional basis.
