Three Archival Papers For Retail Art

- Matte Card (100# Cover) – A high-grade choice and artist favorite, the opaque matte card is an elegant alternative to gloss.
- Textured Matte (100# Cover) – This distinctive card stock is the heart of our fine arts printing and gives artists a textured choice.
Lower-cost paper alternatives are available on our 8x10 flyers page. We've produced prints for thousands of artists utilizing those paper options for selling artwork.
How to Print Multiple Files and Save
8x10 prints qualify for our multiple file policy. What does this mean? You can upload up to five different art files per quantity and take advantage of bulk rates. You can select the "250" quantity and print "50" of five separate graphics.
Enjoy Fast Turnaround (in Business Days)
One and Two business-day options are available for turnaround time.
Digital proofs could add one extra day in some cases. Art issues can also extend the turnaround time.
Take Advantage of 8x10 Digital Proofs
Please upload art files from this page and review them during the check-out process (as a link). If you prefer a PDF digital proof before printing, please select the digital proof option for $5. We try to send proofs within 6 - 8 business hours.
Our designers thoroughly examine artwork for bleed, margins, resolution, color changes, and size issues. If cases arise where we cannot quickly fix problems, a staff artist will email a PDF proof demonstrating related concerns. Our main goal is to ensure you are 100% happy with the final prints. To take advantage of The Printkeg Promise, please add a PDF proof to your order.
Requested digital proofs regularly add one business day to turnaround. Turnaround time begins once you approve printing by email.
Sending Us Artwork is Easy
Please upload your art files 50MB and under from this page. If, for some reason, you cannot upload the art to us, please feel free to email the file to email@example.com with the order number as the subject. If your data is too large to upload or email, try a free third-party file storage company such as Google Drive or Dropbox.
Full Bleed or Borders?
Please let us know in the messages area if you prefer us to add white borders to your artwork. This solution might be preferable for art with signatures close or on the edges. We will preserve that area in the final print if white margins exist in your artwork. Otherwise, all artwork is printed full bleed or edge-to-edge.
These Art Specs May Improve the Quality of Your Final 8x10 Prints.
If the below criteria appear like Huttese to you, it is okay. Don't let the list prevent you from getting started. Our crew works intimately with you if any art problems come up. Since we focus on producing retail prints for artists, we will encourage you to submit better files if possible.
- Try to edit the size details of your image files and use 8.25" x 10.25 dimensions. We ask for this added space (called "the bleed area"), so we can provide edge-to-edge prints. You can save critical text and imagery from clipping by keeping those items at least 0.25 inches away from all edges. If you work in pixels, try to get as close to 2475 x 3075 as possible.
- While drafting new designs, exporting files from your camera, scanning physical artwork, or photographing paintings, make sure your final print file will be at least 300dpi. 300dpi is the lowest setting considered high-quality in the print industry. By default, many apps and software export art as a web-safe 72dpi or mediocre 132dpi. Those images may look fabulous on your monitor but not-so-great via print.
- We prefer PDF or JPG files. Our graphic designers accept other standard file types such as PNG, EPS, and TIF. If you are working in Photoshop or Illustrator, flatten layers or outline fonts before saving. Also, check the "save" settings are not compressing the file.
- Try designing your digital art in CMYK color mode. We convert most 8x10 art into CMYK before printing starts. If this is your first time printing with us, please consider ordering a PDF proof to visualize massive color shifts.
Visualize Trim Area Using Downloadable Templates
We've created a downloadable 8x10 PDF template for help visualizing bleed and trim areas. Please notice the template is 8.25x10.25 (to include trim regions). You can submit art in portrait or landscape format.

Thank you!" - Jackie
Shipping 8x10 Prints Quick and Safe
8x10 art prints are shipped flat, shrink-wrapped between heavy chipboards, and then snuggled with bubble wrap placed inside durable shipping boxes. It is rare to receive damaged products, but we will reprint these items at no extra cost to you.
There are More Options for 8x10 Prints
You Can Print 8x10 on Lighter Paper.
We do offer four thinner paper options in our flyer section for 8x10. We do not recommend this for most retail art since art papers are archival and intended for gallery and long-lasting settings. But, we see many artists, marketers, and event planners using the thinner alternatives.
Consider Square Prints.
Sometimes your art may not fit 8x10 since it is more square in nature. We can resolve this situation by utilizing the 8x8 ratio, which you can find on our custom square printing page. Additional square sizes reside there as well.
What other sizes play nice with 8x10?
If you are hoping to print cards and posters of your 8x10 artwork, these are your counterpart sizes:
- 3" x 4" (90% compatible)
- 4" x 5" card (100% fit, order from our 4" x 6" page)
- 4.25" x 5.5" card (95% fit)
- 5" x 7" card (80% and easy to work with)
- 11" x 14" print (90% and easy to handle)
- 12" x 16" poster (90% and easy to refit)
- 24" x 30" large print (100% but watch that resolution)
You will notice that 11" x 17" and 12" x 18" are missing. It is not impossible to resize 8" x 10" art to fit those sizes, but the process may require cropping or uneven margins. Our internal artists are here to make sure your prints look marvelous.
Pro Tips for Perfect Custom 8x10 Prints
Print Tip #1 - Picking the Perfect Size
We see many artists ordering 8x10 since that size is one of the customers' most commonly accepted dimensions. If your art does not fit the 8x10 very well, we may recommend switching to 8.5x11 or 8x12 - both alternatives are standard and easily framed. Making this change assures the physical prints appear closer to your digital artwork.
Print Tip #2 - Guarding Your Signature
We will probably email you if there is a signature close to the edges of your art. Adding borders to art is an easy way to preserve an artist's signature. To avoid delays, you can preemptively let us know to add borders (this is a free service) in the instructions area. This extra step may help your project avoid additional turnaround days.
Print Tip #3 - Understanding Colors
Colors are tricky. Thousands of factors affect colors, but the most common issue we see is RGB colors are muted once we convert to CMYK. To visualize possible changes, order a PDF digital proof. Beware; the sample PDFs we send are not 100% accurate. We cannot match the brightness of your monitor. The best way to see colors is by starting with a small order and risking a few dollars before committing to significant projects/investments.
Printing your art on gloss art cardstock grants gorgeous colors and a satin shine perfect for almost any project. This paper is perfect for printing digital fan art.
Many artists prefer our opaque, uncoated, and warm matte art paper. Colors are intentionally a little more subdued for an elegant feel.
Textured paper promotes a watercolor-like paper texture to capture the authenticity of physical art. Each print carries imperfections for a unique customer experience
Gold or Silver
Metallic cardstocks are the rage. Choose Metallic Gold or Pearl Silver. These media selections are easy ways to offer limited-edition prints of your fan art.
The gold is in your face, and the pearl silver is subtle since the paper is ivory pearlescent. The end results are stunning yet intentionally unpredictable.
We added metallic variants to allow fan artists to add limited edition prints to their arsenal in the same way comic book companies offer alternative covers.
A Printkeg artist will prepare your artwork for printing and send you a visual in PDF format via email. This usually takes place within a few business hours. The image we will email you showcases trim location and CMYK colors in a limited fashion.
Make Graphic Work
This $9 option informs our staff to move forward with quick fixes and tackle any possible obstacles. Benefits may include reviewing file dimensions, tackling border issues, and reworking challenging "bleed" areas. There is one goal in mind: to ensure perfect Art Prints.
Edit My Design
This option is inexpensive for hiring us to modify your image file. Our designers edit or place elements into your file, like text, images, etc. The most common use of this service is changing event dates, removing signatures, and swapping photos.
Create My Art
We hire a trusted graphic designer with whom we've worked closely to help you create a new design from scratch. Most communication is via email. Most designs are finished in only a few business days.
Rush Turnaround speeds up your order time by one day. That could mean same-day printing. You need your prints urgently, so we will try to make it happen. We sometimes expedite the shipping if we cannot honor same-day printing.
Free Art Inspections
A human artist reviews every single file before printing starts. If we notice any problems, a Printkeg representative will contact you via email with options how to move forward.
