Hi all,

anyone has experience of professional printing for photos? someone had suggested me to print some of my photos and try out in gallery.

It is just a rough idea but i think it won't be bad just to try out or even just hang it on my own wall.

What kind of printing will it be involved? it is usually best on canvas? I notice some photographs printings hanging in Starbucks cafe, the surface is with textures, and wrap over a board, is that canvas printing?

I have no idea why it is printed on canvas, instead of printing on photo paper and frame it? it is canvas are more lasting?

thank you.

I've printed a photo on canvas, some black and white tree branches silhouette and it looks very nice but i wouldn't print on canvas for a gallery. Plus the tree silhouette was pure black on white background, not even grayscale so it looks like a painting, don't think standard photos look good on canvas.

For the gallery i'd say try to find a printing method and photo paper that are described as "archival" quality. Don't think galleries will accept anything less. I've seen "archival type C" (whatever that is) mounted on thick cardboard and it looks classy.

Sorry to seem blunt and even rude, but the medium needs to be appropriate for the individual image. By committing to one media type on a whim is just throwing money away. To ask the advice of those who have never seen the images involved is equally as useless. You might as well just run stuff off on an inkjet.

The best way is to do your own homework. See what's in the galleries in your area. Ask questions there, not here where we have no idea what's good in your location.
