Wedding Albums

Of Lately I have seen few wedidng Photogrphers giving albums with size f prints of about 12x15, excellent printing with laminated sheets and then binding is again excellent. I wish to know such places where one can buy such printers to print or can get their work printed from.

I highly recommend this printer. The prints have a wide color space, and long life.

Rather than purchase a printer capable of handling paper wider than 8.5" you might want to locate a graphics printing business. The one I use in my community is a private business using color laser printers. This may take a bit of time and experimentation, as you certainly want to find a business that does quality work. My cost for simply printing an 11" x 14" image is $2.00. Of course, I have done all of the prep work. Anyway, it is a lot cheaper for me than investing in a bigger printer. The added plus is the ink is thermally set into the paper. No more spraying with fixatives.

Waldemar,

I didnt think color laser was photo quality. Color laser is more for printing pie charts, and graphics.

Good point, and I don't know the answer. However, if one considers that the human eye can not discern 300 dpi, any printer that prints 180-200 dpi should be able to produce an acceptable image. Granted, I don't even know what a laser printer can or can not product in terms of maximum resolution. But one thing I have learned is that generalizations are made to be manipulated. What works is what counts. In the end, if accepatble quality is the result, is there an issue? NO. Consider magazine advertisements. I'm no expert here, but I ask, are they photos or graphics? Who decides, and when? They look good, do they not? How were they printed? The questions go on and on.

At some point in every project the issue of resolution becomes important. That decision will be made on a project by project basis.

Waldemar,

It would be interesting to see a side by side comparison of, for example, an 11x14 color laser @200 dpi vs endrua metalic chemical @300 dpi (SRGB) vs luster or glossy inkjet on the epson pro 4000 @360 dpi (A98 color space). Of course there is more to the final image quality than the printer itself. Camera optics, native ccd resolution, monitor/printer profiles, the amount of res/color the paper itself can hold, RAW into TIFF or JPEG native, ext, ext. If you and your clients are happy with the prints, it sounds like a good way to save money.
