Storing mid-sized art prints?

We love art prints, but we signed up for some subscription series and have managed to buy more than we can afford to frame. What's the best way to store them to make sure they stay flat and pristine? Typical size is between 11x14 and 24x36.

What is the best way for a digital artist to sell prints online?

I run a little, very informal art project on a tumblr blog which has gotten somewhat popular. Recently people have been asking if they can buy prints. I don't have any prints for sale right now, and don't know much about how to set up an online store, or if there's some other method that digital artists find convenient. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction with this? [more inside]

Still looking for a printer.

I tried this last week but got no response, so I'm going to ask again in a somewhat more general way. I'm looking for a good photo printer that is reliable, takes lots of different paper sizes, doesn't cost a ton, and is relatively cheap to run. [more inside]

Giclée printer in the uk

I need to get 4 roughly A3 sized giclée prints produced from my own digital artwork for an art show and I'm looking for a printing company in the UK. I really need them by the end of the coming week. I live in a rural area so I need somewhere that does mail order. There is a general print shop in my nearest town but I don't think they'll be able to do the quality I'll need from an ordinary print (although I could be wrong I've done this before) I've tried a couple of companies with other things but I was not happy with the quality of one and the other has still not delivered a week after their quoted turn around time. Does anyone have any recommendations?

How do I buy a Ukranian folk artist's print - Maria Primachenko?

I fell in love this week with Maria Primachenko who is just so so good, like staring at the pictures on my screen in wonder and delight, and I badly want a full-size or at least reasonably large print to frame - I love them all, so any of her works would do. All I can find are some dubious quality replicas at Wahooart, but I'll settle for postcards at this point. I can't find any of the books or albums about her on my usual book source searches either. Any ideas?

From Fotomat to Photoshop: How to best copy & print a lot of old photos?

I need to copy a bunch of photo prints (estimated at 80) to have made into duplicate prints for multiple people. (Reason: I found my birth family, and they all want photos of me from throughout my life.) The photos are many different sizes and ratios, like 3x5, 4x6, square, 5x7, etc, and some have been cut with scissors into odd sizes/aspect ratios. [more inside]

Looking for a specific artist of creepy pictures

I'm looking for a specific artist who produces some very creepy prints, but I'd also be interested in any recommendations on a similar theme. One picture was of a dead astronaut, skull visible in their helmet, being held up by a ghost/spirit. Another was of a post-Chernobyl creature made up of parts of other animals, mainly horses, with human body parts as well. I think there were Napoleonic zombies in a different picture as well.

Help me cover a wall in 11x17 color copies

I would like to cover an entire bedroom wall in color photocopies. I have put this off for years, for fear of destroying my rental suite bedroom wall with whatever adhesive I used, but recently learned that some people have had success affixing images cut out from color copies (though not necessarily entire 11x17 sheets) to their walls using aerosol starch, and later being able to remove them without leaving any traces; others have failed to get the images to stick at all using this method. Have you experienced success or failure in attempts to do something similar? What are my other options here? [more inside]

Where to purchase Jorinde Voigt art

My wife and I went to the ROM in Toronto last week and stumbled onto an exhibition of Beethoven 1-32 by Jorinde Voigt. Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase a print or reproduction of her work? Both my wife and I were blown away by the delicacy and symmetry of the drawings.

Unsolved Mystery of the Disappearing Print Ink

What is this non-permanent printer ink I've received in a print? I didn't know that ink couldbe erased with a simple pencil eraser, but indeed the postcard-sized print I received on relatively heavy paper (possibly watercolor paper) was erasable with a pencil eraser. I only wanted to see if I could slough off a speck of dirt, and instead skin color came off the portrait. What's going on? Is this kind of ink going to fade and disappear in a couple of years even under glass? [more inside]

Best way to scan a book image into a high-quality print?

Hi all, I am a neuroscience student and I'd like to get my mentor a print of one of Santiago Ramon y Cajal's famous drawings of a neuron as a going away gift. Unfortunately, I can't find anywhere that sells prints or photos of these drawings online, but I was able to find a book at my university's library that has larger (12" x 24") high quality images of these drawings. My question: what is the best way to go from book to print? Are there particular scan qualities or types? Particular types of paper/material to print onto? Places (FedEx, architecture firms) to go to? Any advice would be really helpful. Thanks! Brian

Best Choice For Occasional Offsite Photo Printing?

I'm looking for a way to make very occasional photo prints, color and b&w, in the 8x10 and 11x14 range. I've looked at buying a printer and concluded that's not cost effective for my needs. Ideally, I'd like to send a Photoshop file to someone and then drive by to pick up the prints or have them ship the prints to me. Are any of the online services any good? If so, who is the best? What about places like Costco and Kinkos? I've found a few old threads here on this subject, so I suspect things have changed. I'm looking for better than drugstore/Walmart/Target quality.

How can I separate the prints without tearing or otherwise ruining them? If that is impossible, I still have the negatives somewhere; how can I best scan negatives into a regular flatbed scanner?

My dad has many boxes of the photographs he took during college 30 years ago. After completing my freshman year, I have equally as many digital pictures saved on my computer. While I would love to make 1500 prints, that isn't very plausible. What's the best way to preserve these pictures and make them easily accessible and viewable in the future?
