Print Store

Welcome to the Print Store. 

For each image you can select paper prints, fine-art prints, wall art, desk art, keepsakes, or cards.

For Paper Prints, please check the Photo Details to see the print dimensions and maximum recommended print size to produce the best-quality print (300 dpi). 

Fine Art Prints have a minimum size of 8 x 10 inches.

Wall Art is available as canvas, satin laminate, metal, or wood.

Desk Art is available as an Acrylic Block or Flat Metal, the latter with a built-in stand.

If you want to order Postcards, you can find them under Keepsakes and a limited to images that can be cropped to 4 x 6 inches.

Purchase can be made by credit card or Paypal.

Recommended sizes

A typical photo-quality print is 300 dpi or better. The maximum print size is indicated for each image to achieve a photo-quality result regardless of the print size.

In practice, print resolution depends on how far the image will be from the viewer. The farther away they will be the lower the resolution you need.

Typical poster sizes

Small - 11 x 17 inches meant for people standing about 5 ft away from the image. At this distance the smallest resolution they can see is about 115 dpi

Medium - 18 x 24 inches  meant for people standing about 15 ft away from the image

Large - 24 x 36 inches meant for people standing about 30 feet away from the image. 

The minimum resolution for a small-to-medium poster-size print (11 x 17inches  or larger) of acceptable quality is 150 dpi, which means multiplying the "best resolution" image size by 2. For posters of at least Large size you can get away with an image resolution of 72 dpi (multiply best-resolution by 4).

For example: A 2965 x 4448 image has a maximum recommended size fora photo-quality print  (300 dpi) of 9.9 x 14.8 inches. For an acceptable-quality small or medium poster (150 dpi), the maximum size is 19.8 x 29.6 inches. For an acceptable-quality large poster the maximum size is 39.6 x 59.2 inches.    

The following are some online print size calculators.  Remember to select a print that is at no larger than the recommended print size

eLearning Art - https://elearningart.com/community/free/pixel-print/ - Enter the number of pixels (width and height) and the resolution (300 dpi for photo quality, 150 dpi for poster quality) and a set of  maximum image dimensions will be generated.

Omni Calculator -  https://www.omnicalculator.com/other/pixels-to-print-size - Enter the viewing distance (300dpi = 0.6 metres) and image file dimensions (number of pixels) and the maximum print dimensions will be generated.

Nations Photo Lab - https://www.nationsphotolab.com/pixelchart.aspx - Enter the image file dimensions in pixels and it will recommend print sizes for best (300 dpi) and minimum (125 dpi) quality.
