I have a potential client who wants a large (40x60) print of mine. I suggested canvas for obvious reasons (just waiting for payment now). Has anybody had 1 printed that large from a printer that you would recommend. I have checked my usual sources ( MPIX, Adorama, Nations Photo..etc..) and none of them print that large. Interestingly enough, the UPS store claims to be able to do it, :eek: (waiting on a price). I have a call into a local printer, but have never used them before so a bit wary of the quality. Not looking for it to be stretched, I can do that...(with some help from my framer if needed...:D) just rolled...

Actually the finished size would be 44"x64" to allow for a 2" black border all around...

Thanks

Costco offers canvas prints, "gallery wrapped", for up to 40x60 (which is priced at $330). You would have to ask them about the frame idea. Also, they are members only (a membership is $50/yr).

I wish there was a Costco closer to me since I've heard great things about their prints.

You can order from Cosco on-line

They can do 40x60 according to their site. If you call them you may be able to see if they do larger sizes on a custom basis. I have had 2 24x36s printed with them and am happy with the quality.

I looked at them, and liked their prices...I was hoping someone here had used them and could report on their quality....thanks:D

The larger size (44x64) is to include a 2" black border all around, which you can request according to the order page...
