Big Print Sale

Now this can be read in two different ways, one is a (Big) Print Sale and the other is a (Big Print) Sale. We are running the latter with a 25% off sale on all prints 16x20 and larger, including Gallery Wraps. There are some new options with Gallery Wraps as well called Photo Splits, which are three Gallery Wraps of a single image split into a series. See the image below. We are also extending the sale to include float mounts which are a thin canvas wrap mounted on a block so it sits farther from the wall. Depending how it's lit, the shadow it creates can add a unique design element to the image. There are other options for the Gallery Wraps as well, such as high gloss wraps and leather wraps. For those of you who don't know what a Gallery Wrap is to begin with, it's an image printed on canvas that wraps around a wooden stretcher frame and part of the image wraps around the edge so it does not need to be framed.
If you want a more traditional look, we just picked up a new line of frames and mattes at the PPSNYS trade show, which not only look awesome, but they are priced right as well.
The "Big Print" Sale will run through the end of April, however plan ahead and come in soon if you would like these back for Mother's Day.

Cole and Company

I'm getting ready to head to Albany tomorrow morning before the birds wake up to attend the Professional Photographer's Society of New York's annual conference. The trade show is one of the highlights of the conference with 50+ vendors from the photography industry showing off what's new for 2010. One of the people I check out annually is my friend Dennis Cole from Backgrounds by Cole. I went to his website today to browse what's new and sent him an e-mail to see if he was bringing a few specific backgrounds I want to look at. I also sent him an image I took using one of his backgrounds of one of my high school seniors. Within minutes the photo was up on his website as one of his samples.
If you're a photographer, check out his website for some pretty cool patterns, especially the Abstract and iDrop backgrounds.
