MpixPro Printing Lab, located in California, is a division of Millers Professional Printing, the largest professional printing lab in the United States. They use the highest quality products and have an expedient printing turnaround, ensuring you will receive your prints within 5-8 days of ordering.
I do not charge extra for mounting, matting, glass or framing. The prices are the base prices used by the printing lab.
All photographs are available at their largest size, along with smaller sizing options. Some images are not available as prints (E-Surface Paper) to be framed, as the image comes so close to the edge that it would be covered by the frame. In this case, only giclee or metal prints are available. Giclee is not available in sizes 8x12 or 12x18.
Each photo is offered in the only available and/or most appropriate aspect ratio, printing medium, and print sizes. All sizes are in inches, with the range of print sizes being: 6x9, 8x10, 8x12, 12x12, 10x15, 10x20, 12x18, 16x16, 16x20, 16x24, 20x24, 24x24, 20x30, 24x36.
Three types of printing mediums are available:
1. E-SURFACE PAPER, with options to mount or frame image(s).
2. GICLEE (CANVAS GALLERY WRAP)
1. E-SURFACE PAPER
Kodak Professional Endura Premier Paper (traditional E-Surface Paper) is the most popular paper used by professional photographers. It has a standard archival value of 100 years in home display, and 200 years in dark storage.
MpixPro does not use mounting when an image is framed, as it is not necessary. Therefore, you have the option to frame and image without mounting, or have it mounted on styrene or foam core.
2mm thick black plastic, one of the best mounting substrates available, intended for custom framing.
Foam Core Mount:
3/16” foam core is easy to frame and does not warp or bend over time.
Black or white mats are available. They are 2” on each side and are recommended.
You choice of clear or non-glare glass. I recommend non-glare glass, it makes a noticeable difference.
Your choice from 16 types of frames for every image size. There is no framing available for images 24”x36”. An option for this size is to have it mounted, or have it printed on E-Surface paper without mounting, if your framers do not require mounting.
Framed prints that are 10”x15” and smaller (6x9, 8x10, 8x12, 12x12, and 10x15) have saw tooth hangers. Those that are larger have wire hangers.
2. GICLEE (CANVAS GALLERY WRAP)
White poly-cotton blend matte canvas with water-resistant finish and heavy, flexible weave. Industry approved for print permanence by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Gallery-quality canvas is wrapped around a 2.5” width wooden stretcher frame and come ready to hang.
There are 4 styles to choose from for the sides of the canvas, which are 2.5” in depth:
Black sides, White sides, Mirrored sides, or Extend Image to sides
Black or white sides:
I recommend choosing black or white sides, as it will have the best effect for most of the images.
With mirrored sides, the edges of the image with be repeated, and might look good for very abstract images, but might take away from the overall look of the image if partial objects are repeated on the sides.
Extend image to sides:
If you choose this option, keep in mind that the full image will not be represented on the face of the canvas, as 2.5” of the images on all four sides will be printed on the edges of the canvas, instead of on the face. This might look good for very abstract images which don’t have concrete objects close to the edges of the image.
All giclee prints come with saw-tooth hangers, except for 20x30 and 24x30 prints, which come with a wire hanger.
Contemporary, elegant and artistic, metal prints are bright and crystal-clear. Metal prints are printed on a 1/16” metal sheet and come ready to hang, no need for framing.
There are 3 different types of mounts available for metal prints, depending on the size of the print:
Magnet mount, metal easel or float mount: 8x10
Metal easel or float mount only: 8x12, 12x12, 12x18, 16x16, 16x20
Float mount only: 16x24, 20x20, 24x24, 20x30, 24x30, 24x36
