You have two options for purchasing your images / prints.
iHeart Images by Michelle is your “one stop shop”! Once your images are available in your on-line gallery you may order prints directly from there through my associated professional print lab. I have over 20 prints sizes/items available with 3 different types of photo paper to choose from. If you do not see the size or item that you need please let me know and most likely I can find that item for you.
*Download your pictures right from your gallery along with a print release. You can then order your pictures for the location of your choice.
*For an additional charge of $30 your pictures can be placed on a high-res DVD with a hard copy print release.
What is the difference between a professional print lab and a consumer print lab (Wal-Mart, Walgreens, etc.)?
This is a very good question!!
The first and most obvious difference will be seen in the price of the prints and items. In most cases the consumer lab is going to be cheaper.
The second and most note worthy difference will be seen in the quality of your prints and items. Professional labs use better quality papers to produce really lovely, heavy and thick photographic prints to stand the test of time. There is a wider range of sizes and products available. Plus, in addition to the usual matte and gloss, most professional printers also offer metallic papers.
Cropping: Very Important!
ALWAYS PREVIEW YOUR CROPS BEFORE PRINTING! The first example below shows a 4x6 photo. All of your photos from me will be in 4x6 format. Certain crops WILL remove a portion from the top and/or side edges of the picture. During your print preview you can move the picture around inside of the crop area to adjust the crop to your liking.
