  • If I were you I would try my hardest to find a local company. Find out what you feel is a reasonable distance to travel and then start searching for print labs and making calls. Some labs, even if ...
  • I can assure you 100% there is no anger here. I have way too many things in my life going on to get angry on an internet forum. I will say this for the final time and then I wont repeat it anymore ...
  • I don't know why you're trying so hard to make me look bad.  If you read what I wrote in this thread, the reason was because we are always being price matched to costco since we offer a best price ...
  • from bayphotos website " sRGB is preferred for photo paper prints, while Adobe RGB is preferred for giclee, metal, and press print items" from metalmouthprints.com a small specialized high quality ...
  • Pardon my ignorance but I honestly and truly do not know what that means, what would the amount of times I mention costco have to do with anything? The test was done from costco so I think its ...
  • Its funny how the internet works. Guy has a few posts so clearly hes beneath us all. Let me clear things up. Costco is not my competitor, not even close. We are not losing business to costco, that ...
  • printing on metallic paper is an entirely different world than printing on metal.  2 completely different processes.
  • I think we all need to move on from this post.  I don't want this to start turning into a full blown argument about color profiles and best practices because everyones opinion is vastly different ...
  • That is what I thought. Why are you assigning a color profile? Using the assign profile strips away the color profile and simply tags the image with that profile. That is the incorrect way to ...
  • In your side by side..Did you assign srgb to the image, or did you use the convert to profile?
  • That was my entire point.  Its not fair to compare a pro lab to a service like costco.  I only made this post to show this.  My post was aimed at members of this community who use costco. If you ...
  • Look I’ll be totally honest with you.  The average person would love this print.  When I had the 9890 printer going when I first started my lab I absolutely loved everything it produced.  I had no ...
  • I think I finally understand what you're saying.  Yes, if someone were to assign a profile to an image, with it not being in that colorspace to begin with, that can alter the end results. I spoke ...
  • Of course you are getting a huge shift in color, you're using the assign profile feature. You should be using "convert to profile". Assign profile keeps color mode numbers the same but changes ...
  • The profile is indeed embedded into the image file. I have printed on metal professionally for about 5 years now and I have tried every way possible (with various RIPS, even printing with RGB ...
  • Thats correct, which is what we are seeing in the comparison here.  I know costco uses 9890 and 4890 printers for their regular prints and its safe to assume they converted these for dye sub for ...
  • That is not accurate.  The only reason why you would ever send a file for printing in the sRGB colorspace is if the printer is not capable of hitting colors in the adobe1998 gamut, which, until ...
  • Miguel, you are absolutely right I am biased here and I can accept any and all criticism. I started this thread to educate and even learn from it as there is a lot of popularity right now for ...
  • Created discussion thread Costco metal prints show poor results
    As a metal print owner, I am constantly being asked by new customers if we price match costco, which we ended up just lowering our prices on our website for the 11x14, 12x12, 16x20 and 16x24 just ...
  • Its disappointing about some of the practices companies will do to make a sale.  The one I dislike the most is how a lot of labs jack the cost of the prints way high and then always offer 50% off, ...
