A Word About Printing

Not all photo labs are the same. We recommend using our website, ww.tanglephotography.com. If you purchase digitals and would like to make prints, you will most likely need a copy of the print release form which we provided on the flash drive or on your Google Drive link.

Please don't print our prints using a 1 hour photo lab as the quality is often compromised. They are great for last minute prints, but if you are going to frame a print, you should pay a couple dollars more and get a person that actually looks at the photo and higher paper quality and finishes. We recommend Bayphoto.com or Whcc.com. There are lots of print labs online, these are the ones we use most often and they guarantee their work.  Below are a few more tips:

Sizing

A few things to know about sizing: 8x10, 5x7 and 4x6 require different "crops". Your wallet is about the same size as a 5x7, however to round the corners requires a little extra comes off the edge. See examples below.

4x6 original, no crop lines. 

5x7, a little trim

8x10, a bit more square.

Enlargements

CanvasonDemand is our preferred Canvas printer for that no frame option.

4x6 is 16x24 or 20x30

8x10 is 16x20 or 24x30 or 30x40

Printique does a great job with acrylic prints.  Yes they cost more, but they look amazing.

Books

We use Printique out of New York for our senior books and Blurb for our coffee table books.  If you want advice on this, please email tanglephotography.com
