Blue Cube Imaging is a professional photo printing service open "to the trade".
Photographers, MUA's and models have the ability to upload to our online ordering site www.bluecubeimaging.com and have prints from 3 1/2 x 5" up to 30 x 50" professionally printed on Fuji Chrystal archive paper and delivered right to your door. We offer digital prints on silver halide Glossy, Metallic, Matte and Lustre materials.
We print using a state-of-the-art Chromira printer. Prints created on Chromira equipment are considered the best quality output available for both commercial and fine art applications.
When you are ready to make prints whether for an updated portfolio or a gallery exhibition we are the lab to use. Nothing we have seen from high end pigment ink or other silver based systems can compare to the beautiful prints we can create when using this machine in addition to our customized software and work flow.
In addition to photo printing we have also added a Wizard CNC Mat Cutter so that our clients can purchase high quality precision cut display mats in bulk at economy prices.
Since BCI is a trade only resource at this time our "website" is simply an ordering portal, for detailed pricing, file set-up or other information please feel free to contact me directly. Basic pricing and file set-up information are also provided below.
Here are a few common sizes and prices based on matte/lustre/glossy paper that I offer to Mi members and the prices of other frequently used labs.
