    Sketch (and all): Turtleman has started a similar thread at http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...ote=1&p=207665. I've suggested he pop over here to share his expertise. Meanwhile, you may also find his thread a useful resource.

    Thanks Byron! Here is Misty Morning framed. This is the cheap print ordered from Costco. I thought it actually came out pretty nice (better than expected actually). I threw it in a frame I already had. The size of this print is 20 x 30". I would actually like it in a nicer frame with matting...but at least you guy's can see how the print turned out!

    Terrific Sketch. Yes, it came out quite nice - good light, lots of atmosphere and the detail and color subtlety in His Majesty are all quite fine. Not bad at all. 20 x 30 is a pretty nice size for getting a better feel for the work. Congratulations.

    Which process did you use at Costco, and what did they charge you. Maybe you could post some of your printing specifics as useful input for others. Orderly information for people would include (and anything you don't know just say "I don't know.").

    1. What was the pixel size the file you gave the printer.
    2. What was your final print size.
    3. What was the printing dpi (or was it a continuous tone photographic reproduction.
    4. Do you know of anything specific the printer did with your file before printing (like color correction, re-sampling up, etc.) or did you just give it to him and pretty much took care of everything like magic without your involvement).
    5. Did you see a color proof before printing? If yes, did the final match the proof (good/bad/etc??)
    6. What process was used for printing (four or six color ink jet, laser printing, offset lithography (not in this case), photographic process reproduction, giclee, etc.)
    7. What was the printing substrate: glossy or matte paper or card stock; canvas and what kind; photographic reproduction stock; etc.
    8.. What is you honest opinion of the result? What's better than you expected? What's worse? Are you satisfied with the outcome?
    9. What did it cost?
    10.What did you learn?
    11. Would you use the process again for work you are going to hang on your wall? For selling to clients?
    12. Do you have any recommendations that come from your experience?

    If everyone posted even half of this stuff it would give others a more realistic experience about what to expect. Since the thread is intended as a resource, it would be great if you found a few minutes to kick it off. (How's THAT for putting you on the spot - see, your friends can be jerks after all ).

    Again, congrats Sketch. Looks great from where I sit. I bet it will look splendid in your home.

    Byron

    Sketch, since you function better under pressure, we'll just have to get out the whip. .

    My (larger) first Color Print

    Printed on a Epson Stylus Pro on Canvas. Size is 200cm x 100cm

    I find the color reproduction really satisfying on the Epson Printer.
