The premium photo papers are available in 11.3 mil satin or glossy and 10.3 mil matte. These are our standard photo papers referenced in our shopping carts
Canvas referenced above is Epson's stretchable art canvas.
Ask about current pricing and availability of any other materials
For the small difference in cost the premium papers are the better value for most photographic projects.
Always be sure you are comparing paper of the same weight and quality when shopping for your large photo prints.

Panoramic photo prints, banners , and wide aspect art work in excess of 36" in length are priced by the running whole foot as shown above for files supplied with images already stitched together.
If more than one panoramic image can be made simultainiously within the 24" wide roll (23.5" printable) or on a standard frame size print they can be added without additional charge, provided the layout can be shipped uncut as a single print.

Large panoramic prints from 37" - 120" long can be ordered in our shopping cart here. Though it is usually best to let us see the digital image file(s) ahead of placing an order for these very large prints.

If we are to cut a multiple image layout to ship as individual prints we bill $5.00 cutting + $2.00 S&H for each additional image. This service cannot be ordered in our shopping carts and must be invoiced via PayPal or Google Checkout.

Actual printed area cannot exceed 23.5" x 40'.
Very long prints may require a 3-5 day wait.
Smaller panoramic photo prints are billed same as the nearest standard frame size print which will contain the entire image or multiple image layout.
Any image over 11.75" in the smaller dimension will need to run separately as a new print and is billed accordingly.
Contact us if you are interested in panoramic photo prints and you are not certain about the potential print sizes.

Please see some of your print border options before placing your order.

You must specify any border preference at time of order.

24" wide prints have a minimum 1/4" white border (23.5" printable).

Please be certain you have specified your order correctly before making a payment.

Shipping and Handling Methods and Rates

Standard S&H for rolled prints is billed $7.75 for the first print + $1.25 each additional print when shipping to one address. ($7.75 per tube if specifying one print per tube or multiple delivery addresses)
Standard shipping is via UPS Ground.
P.O. Boxes, military mail, AK, HI, PR, and other areas not economically serviced by UPS will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail.
Priority Mail may also be requested for most deliveries at time of order.

Other levels of service may be available at additional cost, though the use of an expedited service will not alter our own normal turnaround time.

All international orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail International at significantly higher rates than our domestic S&H and must be placed by requesting a Google Checkout invoice.

Shipping rates may be adjusted for larger print orders so please contact us for a quote.

Frame shipping is now also calculated at $7.75 for the first item plus $1.25 each additional item (ie:  if you order a single print with a frame, the shipping and handling total is $9.00).
We are no longer shipping frames outside the continental US.

YES, we do ship photo enlargement prints to US military addresses worldwide via USPS Priority Mail.
Please be sure your images are acceptable content in your destination country. Orders shipped outside the US are subject to customs declaration and inspection.
Insurance is strongly recommended

Rolled shipping is the safest method for larger prints.
However, individual prints 22"x34" and under can be shipped flat at additional cost. Please contact us for a quote if you are interested in flat shipping.
This option is not available in our shopping cart and must be invoiced or ordered through our custom quote checkout.
Larger quantities, particularly smaller prints, are more economically shipped flat in a carton.

All of our large prints are made from roll fed stock.
The tendency for prints to retain their "curl" is not considered a defect in materials or workmanship and should be expected.
Flat shipping will reduce, but not necessarily eliminate this "memory of the roll".
If sheet fed stock is a requirement for your larger project, please contact us for a timely quote.

Film Scanning

35mm film scans: We can scan your 35mm negatives and slides for printing or archiving on CD or DVD.
1 frame or1000, if you want to finally get those 35mm shots converted to digital we've got you covered with optical resolutions to 5400dpi with 8 or 16 bit depth when stored in uncompressed TIF format.

Our scan prices can be found here

Editing time: $60.00/hr. (1/4hr. min.) ie: adding text, logos, multiple image layout, extensive cropping, restoration, panorama stitching, etc.

Color correction and artistic editing should be done before sending us your file for printing.

There is no additional charge for resizing, interpolation (resampling) and/or cropping your photo to suit your chosen print size.

Sizes are representative of what we commonly produce. Virtually any custom size is possible within the 24" x 50' roll. Drop us a note for a timely quote on any size not listed above.

Border Requirements

Prints with the narrowest dimension greater than 23.5" require a minimum 0.25" border. You must specify border preference at time of order. Our default border is 0.25" on all print sizes.

Please see some of your print border options here

Art canvas requires an oversize border if it is to be mounted on stretchers. 2" overage is provided in the sizes priced above. You must specify either a standard wrap (image printed at frame size) or full gallery wrap (image printed 1 1/2" oversize to wrap the image over the sides of the stretcher). Not all images lend themselves to the gallery wrap and most will look best if the subject(s) remains within the flat field. Canvas print prices do not include any mounting or required protective overcoating. Shipping for canvas prints is the same as for our paper prints above
Canvas prints should be ordered by requesting an invoice.

Art paper pricing will depend on the brand and style you choose and is generally special ordered.
Contact us for a quote on your specific requirements or to see what we may have in stock for immediate delivery.
We do quite a few digital art prints on enhanced matte photo paper which we try to maintain in stock at all times. If a smooth, very flat finish is what you need this is the most economical choice. Priced the same as our other premium photo papers above.

Frame prices and shipping rates

Some of our frame prices and shipping rates may be found on our frames page. Please ask for a quote for any items/sizes not listed.
Most frame items are special order and will require additional time to ship. If time is a factor please check availability before placing an order containing framing items.
Frames and mats should be ordered by requesting an invoice.

Please contact us regarding any specific requirements for your project.

* Our standard print prices include:

Resampling your image to suit your desired print size using interpolation techniques as required to produce a quality print.

Limited cropping if needed to match the aspect ratio of your chosen print size will also be done unless specified otherwise. A custom print size or larger and/or unequal borders are alternatives to destructive editing which should be clearly specified at time of order.

More information about cropping can be found here.

At Postersize-it all editing decisions are made by human beings. We don't leave cropping or resampling to be controled entirely by software. If we can't produce a print that satisfies us, we'll offer you alternatives rather than ship it anyway. We think this sets us apart from much of our competition, we hope you will too.

Standard size prints ordered framed with mats: we will size the image to best fit the mat opening. Framed and matted prints must be ordered at the desired frame size, not the mat opening size.

Canvas prices do not include any mounting or overcoating.
