CCP Student Prints


We all work so hard through the term, learning new concepts, refining our vision, planning shoots and processing our images. Don’t be let down by the print! I’m pleased to offer a high-end printing service to CCP students, that is flexible and affordable!

Your prints will be on your choice of a selection of premium papers, printed using an Epson 3880 (Epson Ultrachrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink-set). The output is fantastic! Sample prints can be viewed at the CCP.

Since I began producing my own prints, I have devoted a huge amount of time (just ask my wife!) researching and experimenting – working towards mastering digital pigment printing. Over time, I’ll share my hard-earned knowledge by uploading my thoughts and learnings on optimising images for print, as well as going down the rabbit-hole that is colour management and soft-proofing. Look for these at http://renderingintent.com.au.

The Paper

Premium Range

Hahnemuhle Bamboo

A 290gsm, 90% bamboo fibre, 10% cotton matte paper, with a light surface texture. The paper is a slightly warm white (no optical brightening agents here), and while it can’t match the deep blacks or saturation that can be achieved with the two Canson papers on offer, the prints have a subtlety and sense of depth that needs to be seen to be appreciated. My favourite matte paper.

Canson Baryta Photographique

A 310gsm paper with a very finely-textured lustre finish. An alpha-cellulose, acid-free pure white paper with the same barium sulphate coating as for traditional silver halide and a premium inkjet colour receiver layer.

I’m finding this paper to be great for colour, outstanding for black and white prints!

Canson Photo HighGloss Premium RC 315gsm

A 315gsm smooth paper with a resin-coated surface. A very white paper, very glossy, and capable of achieving deep blacks and saturated colours. If your image is crying out to be printed in a way that gives it real impact, this is your paper!

A little unsure of which way to go? Check out the sample prints at the CCP – that will give you the best indication of which papers are best suited to various types of images. If in doubt, Canson Baryta is a fantastic middle ground! Ultimately, it comes down to an aesthetic choice – choose a paper that will suit your vision and your work best!


Delivery Times

I will typically have prints ready for collection two days after receipt of order and images.

During week 8, from Monday to Thursday, I will be available at the CCP between 6:30 and 7:00pm for any questions, order placement and file transfer, and print drop-off. If you can’t meet me at the CCP, call me on 0421 632 976 and we can make arrangements for you to get your files to me for printing.

I will print the night I receive the order, allowing a day for the prints to stabilize before trimming and packaging the following night, and have completed orders ready for collection the evening after.

If you really NEED a 24-hour turn-around, let me know. I may be able to accommodate it.


Files

Files should be resized to 360ppi (eg. an 8″x12″ print would be 2880×4320 pixels).

Files should be saved in AdobeRGB (either as a jpeg or tiff).

File names should have the following format:

[Image number]-[print size (inches)].extension

eg: “1-8×12.jpg”, “2-8×12.jpg” etc.

Paper type must be specified when ordering.

Please ask me if you’re unsure – I can be contacted on 0421 632 976.
