Printing Services

Our Printers

Aimed directly at producing superior photographic prints and reproductions of fine art, our 44" wide EPSON Stylus® Pro 9900 printers were designed in collaboration with some of the world's best-known photographers and artists. Eleven EPSON HDR UltraChrome™ inks are used to produce the widest range of colors, lights and blacks, at a resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 dpi.

Our Papers

  • Luster Photo Pro (LPP) is a gloss paper for professional quality digital photos and images.

  • Hannemuhle Photo Rag (HPR) is bright white, with a smooth velvet finish.

  • Hannemuhle German Etching (HGE) is a warm white, with a pebbled texture similar to watercolor paper.

Our Technicians

  • Print lab staff are digital arts graduate and undergraduate students who have received additional training to get the best performance from our high-end equipment.

  • Your print files are reviewed prior to printing, to ensure maximum print quality. You will be contacted if any changes need to be made to your file.

  • All prints receive the white glove treatment -- literally -- while they are in our lab.

Our Prices

  • We charge only what’s needed to cover our costs, at a tremendous savings to our customers. In comparison to the same quality prints offered on the web or elsewhere, using the same paper and printers, you can easily pay twice as much. Purchases must be paid using your BG1 Card (transfer money on MyBGSU).
