Macquarie Editions can now produce presentation portfolios of your work. These could either be for sale as limited editions or simply to showcase/preserve your best images. The images themselves are printed on the paper of your choice (see below for some recommendations) then individually sleeved with archival barrier paper. A typical portfolio will supplement the images with any or all of: title sheet, text description, thumbnails, colophon etc. The whole is presented in an elegant clamshell box (custom made to Macquarie Editions’ specifications) and titled externally as desired. A pair of cotton gloves is included to encourage careful handling.
The cost for a completed A3+ portfolio with 10 images is $600. This includes the box, printing and assembly. Pricing for different sizes and/or number of images is available on request.
Congratulations to Joshua Dykgraaf whose work London was selected as a finalist in the Cliftons Art Prize.
Macquarie Editions has recently added a colour managed large-format flatbed scanner and can now offer high quality scans of any drawn, painted or printed media up to A2 size. The scanned image can then be transferred to a fine art paper as a reproduction potentially indistinguishable from the original (and with comparable display life).
Effective today, an updated Price List applies for a number of prints and services.
The price for all but the largest prints will increase with corresponding discounts of 5% or 10% for medium/large jobs. This reflects a disproportionate overhead for small jobs.
The discount for student work (where the prints are for assessment) has been increased from 15% to 20%.
This site now supports HiDPI on “Retina” class devices (iPad 3/4, MacBook Pro with Retina display) and similar tablets/screens. If you have one of these (and use a browser that supports it) you should notice smoother and more detailed images. Future content will all display at higher resolution while existing images will be updated over time.
Macquarie Editions has just added an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printer to expand capabilities and can now offer prints up to 44″ (1.1m) wide by any practical length. A selected range of papers will be offered in 36″ and 44″ widths and I’m keen to hear about your requirements.
Macquarie Editions has had a long association with AIPP award-winning photographer Chris Morrison, providing film scans of his 6×17 transparencies. Chris has now launched his own site with stunning panoramic images from Australia & New Zealand, Europe and South America. (more…)
