Monitor calibration

Before you make your order, we strongly recommend that you take the time to make sure your screen is properly calibrated. By using a calibration device like Lacie, X-Rite, or Spyder, you’ll be getting a more accurate visual representation of what your print will look like when it’s finished.

Remember! Different coloured stocks will also change the way printed colours look, so make sure you take this into account when making your product choices.correct for print.


Not all our photography products are printed on the same press, so you’ll need to check your file is in the correct colour space before submitting it. Framed, giclée, photographic and canvas prints will reproduce better in RGB because the Epson presses they’re reproduced on have a much wider colour gamut and can capture all the colours in your image more accurately. All the other products in the Photography Collection are printed on our HP Indigo presses, so need to be created in CMYK.

What is DPI vs. PPI?

DPI stands for ‘dots per inch’ and is used to indicate the density of dots a press can lay down; the more dots, the better quality the image.

PPI, or ‘pixels per inch’, is the resolution or level of detail in your image. Like DPI, the more pixels you have per inch, the better quality your image is going to look when it’s printed.

Tip! Our recommendations are based on an effective 200ppi for output despite 300ppi having been considered the standard. Modern cameras and our own Epson presses are capable of achieving stunning reproductions at 200ppi, but if you are in any doubt about the quality of your image, 300ppi files are best!
