As an artist I have been printing paper posters, coasters, matchbooks, book covers and a long list of other paper products and fine art prints for myself and other artists and businesses. I use high quality papers and substrates, and the finest water based archival inks to create rich vibrant printed paper products.

As a working artist and professional print maker, I am always excited to get into the next awesome project. Having printed thousands of images since 2005, I am still like a kid in a candy shop when I get to the studio to print. 

Listed below is the way to start an paper print project. Once we get all this in order, we can move on to the next step towards getting your awesome project done!

 

PREPARING YOUR ARTWORK

Now that you have an amazing image for your project, it's time to prepare it for sending off for print. It is important that your image is a high resolution file (150-300 ppi) or vector image. Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are the best programs to create your artwork in. Whenever designing an image for apparel, I like to print the final image out and lay onto my favorite shirt to get an idea of how big the image should be. It is always a good idea to send your file the size that you want it to be printed at. If you are specific about ink colors you can also include the list of PMS colors that your design will use. 

Don't have finalized artwork? Well I have designed hundreds of T-shirt and apparel graphics, and can help you get a great image for your project. Just contact me with your ideas, doodles, and comments regarding your artwork needs. 

 

choosing your product

As you can imagine, there are a ton of options to print on for your project. One good thing to think about before choosing your product, is what are your plans for them? Are they a promotional product to get a message or name out into the world? Or are you planning on selling these items in a retail environment? Below are my top selling paer products with item descriptions, color options, and cost.
