DO

Make some test prints at home to check sharp­ness, con­trast and im­age qual­ity, even if you are hav­ing your im­ages printed com­mer­cially.

Make sure that your con­tact de­tails are in­cluded on the back of the print, so that peo­ple can con­tact you if they or their friends would like other prints.

Have a good range of print sizes avail­able, as not ev­ery­one has the space for huge prints on their walls.

DON'T

Use very or­nate or colour­ful frames for most of your im­ages, as this will limit the mar­ket to those who like this type of frame.

Try to print your im­ages too large. To en­sure the high­est qual­ity prints make sure that the im­age res­o­lu­tion is at least 300dpi at the print size that you want to make.

For­get to cal­i­brate your mon­i­tor, or to use the cor­rect colour pro­file for the printer and pa­per that you will be us­ing.
