Can you print custom sizes?

What paper surface should I use?
Paper preference can be a personal choice so we invite you to request one of our paper samplers or stop by to view our paper surfaces. In general, Lustre is our most popular surface for all around use and portraits. It’s favored by wedding photographers and other professionals. Matte is our second most popular. Glossy is used more in commercial applications and the metallic (Fuji Crystal Archive Pearl) is a special effects paper that is more printed for brilliant, colorful landscapes like HDR imagery, fine art and some commercial images.
Do you print wallets? What about die cut wallets?
We offer wallets in various forms. From a 2-up 4×6 wallet (two wallets printed on a 4×6 print for lower volume), to an 8-up wallet sheet. We do offer die cut wallets on an 8-up sheet.
Do you offer imprinting or put text on photos, like my studio name for example?
While we cannot put text directly on your image, we do offer text in the borders of the folio prints and some design templates available in the ROESpro. You may also put your studio name in the backside printing area that is offered at check out.
Do I need to upscale my file before sending it to you?
We recommend letting us handle the up-scaling. As long as you provide us with at least a 2000×3000 pixel file from at least a 6 megapixel camera, then we are golden! ROES will let you drag your original file into the size template of your choice to choose your crop. Then once we receive the order, our software will upscale as necessary.

Our minimum file recommendation is 3000 pixels on the longest side. The rule of thumb is 300 pixels per inch of photo printing (resolution of 300).
Can you print nude images?
We do process boudoir photography and have several clients who specialize in this. Our policy is to reject photography where there is purposeful contact with the genitals’ or where the primary focus of the image is the genital area.

We print up to 48”x96” on all four photographic surfaces and up to 40×60 on fine art and flat canvas.
What is Lustre?
Lustre can best be described as an in-between of Matte and Glossy. It has a slight sheen with a very subtle texture and it’s highly fingerprint and scratch resistant making it our most popular surface.
Is there writing on the back of your prints?
On photographic prints up to 12×18, there is some light printing to identify your order, frame number, and copyright information if you have chosen that option. Kodak paper also has a watermark for their brand on the back of the paper. Photographic prints over 12×18 for Lustre and 12×36 for the other surfaces do not have any printing on the back of the paper.
