Printing Info & Specs
The remarkable details, color accuracy and media quality of our custom large prints and photographs are spectacular and unmatched at these price levels. Two versatile media choices include satin photo gloss and photo matte paper. We specifically selected these media for exhibits, photo enlargements and giant artwork of any assortment. Our museum-like quality printing methods plus archival papers ensure an amazing final product.
Special note: Each individual large print can be unique artwork or photograph. Unfortunately, the "art upload" button only accepts one file. If your order will be multiple files, please email the artwork or send via file sharing application like Dropbox.
Turnaround (Business Days)
Turnaround time begins once artwork is approved and properly prepared for production.
Printkeg offers 1 or 2-day turnaround options for large prints, photo printing, and photo enlargements.
Digital proofs, artwork concerns, and quantity splits may increase turnaround time, but our staff works diligently to keep orders on schedule.
Sending Art & Photographs
Artwork can usually be uploaded to us through the above form. However, if your large poster file is larger than 20MB, please send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or via file sharing apps such as Box, Dropbox, Google Drive or any alternative service of your choice. Please provide us the order number.
If a digital proof is vital, please select the "Email PDF Proof" option for $5, and we will send one within 6 - 8 business hours. Digital proofs will likely alter turnaround by adding 1 extra day. Turnaround begins once art is approved for printing.
By default, our designers review bleed, resolution and size for all artwork before printing. If problems arise that we cannot quickly adjust, we will contact you or email a PDF proof demonstrating our concerns. We do everything we can to ensure you are totally happy with the final prints.
Many Large Sizes
We print many convenient sizes often utilized by photographers and artists including 16x20, 18x24 and 20x30. Many other sizes are also available, and custom cutting is welcome at no extra charge. Please call our office to discuss your project further or provide more information in the "Messages / Deadlines" area.
All large format prints are considered full bleed or "edge to edge." Some refer to this as borderless. Please leave about a 1/8" trim area if possible, otherwise, your image is slightly stretched to attain full bleed.
Many Incredible Media Choices
Both paper choices are engineered for printing beautiful photography and artwork.
Photo Gloss - This premium HP photo gloss paper supplies vibrant colors and superior fade resistance at a very competitive price also ensuring perfect color, superior finish plus a 200-year archival rating.
Photo Matte - We offer an FSC Certified, unique matte photo paper that is heavy with an elegant smooth finish. Delivers full-color graphics and photo-realistic images with uniform ink coverage.
Metallic (Discontinued) -This "metallic" paper enables you to create stunning prints that previously could be output only in a darkroom. The metallic, high-gloss surface results in prints that are sharp, vibrant, and exceptionally rich.
Watercolor - Watercolor paper adds an interesting natural texture to photography and digital media. Collectors who like to handle out-of-frame prints will appreciate this paper's rigidity and surface. Watercolor Paper has a natural white surface and is neutral-toned, acid-free and made from 100% cotton rag.
The vinyl material is available in our banners section. Canvas and watercolor papers are available in our fine arts printing section.
We ask for a 1/8" bleed area for large prints and photographs. Since that is such a small trim amount, most customers send in art sized as the desired print dimensions. If we run into obstacles, we will contact you immediately. For customers being extra cautious, please feel free to send art with ample bleed.

Large prints and photographs are carefully rolled with Kraft paper and inserted into an extremely durable and wide shipping tube. Bubble wrap and/or extra paper is added inside tube to prevent posters from moving. Somehow UPS still manages to sometimes damage these tubes which is quite an accomplishment on their part, but if damage occurs we will reprint and ship immediately at no charge.
