While there is nothing wrong with the normal glossy 5×7, when it comes to your wedding photos why not try something a bit more fun? Below are some of our favorite kinds of special prints available online in addition to where you can have these made.
1. Large Format Prints
If you’re searching for a more conventional printing method but still need it to have some soda, choosing large format printing is a excellent option. Websites such as Shutterfly offer cheap prices ($6.99 — $29.99 for a 12×12 to a 20×30), and are at a decent quality.
2. Engineered Prints
As a cheaper and a more artistic option to large format print for your wedding photography, you can elect to publish an engineered print. By definition, engineered prints are utilized by, well, engineers and architects, builders and building professionals for work purposes. Because of this you won’t get the identical high quality resolution as you would from large-format prints. However, these black and white photographs are perfectly imperfect and therefore are a seriously inexpensive way to print big pictures from your wedding day. Just bear in mind this will not be your crystal-clear wedding photograph, but we love this notion for the more artistic photographs from your day (such as a excellent landscape or intriguing details) instead of the usual profile of you as a couple. It is easy to print engineered prints through sites like Staples, and sizes range from 18×24 to 36×48 ($1.79-$7.29). You can a frame as you desire.
3. Glass Prints
Trying to find something a bit less DIY and a little bit more contemporary? We recommend printing your photographs through Fracture, a service which involves custom special printing of photos onto glass rather than paper. Not only is the method super-easy and relatively affordable (considering you do not need to buy a framework for the printing), it is completely unique, and we love that. Fracture provides stand or wall mounts, square or rectangle and sizes vary from 5×5 to 21.6×28.8 ($15-$125). There are other places out there that offer more customised shapes such as round or oval, but they do come at a cost.
4. Ultra-Thick Prints
Artifact uprising has rapidly become one of our favourite photo resources for their exquisite albums and high quality print design. Though we recommend all their prints, we are infatuated with the Ultra-Thick Signature Prints which are an easy and beautiful way of displaying your photographs in a manner that includes a picture and a pad, all in one print. Artifact Uprising provides a couple of alternatives, from one 11×14, two 8×10’s, two 8×8 and four 5×7’s (from $30), making ordering multiple and showing them together a excellent option. We also love their wood blocks and square prints.
5. Metal Prints
For another exceptional option, you need to check out metal prints. This durable, different option prints your wedding pictures on aluminum sheets rather than paper. This form of printing is so beautiful it could turn an average photograph into award winning wedding photography. To order them online check out AdoramaPix.com in NYC (who also does a excellent job on large format prints). You may choose from a choice of finishes, such as the high-gloss for reflective photos or the satin finish for less gloss and warmth. Additionally, they won’t fade, stain, scratch, and they are waterproof. There’s a slew of shapes and sizes available (from square to oval and round), starting in 4×4 ($14+).
