We've gone back to the major suppliers of photo presentation solutions, covering everything on the market, from canvasses to multi box frames and giclee fine art digital prints, to determine which are worthy of your time and investment. In return these examples should deliver a good margin and moreover, when introduced as part of a client presentation, can act as an extra carrot for securing those all-important bookings in the first place.
Eye Candy Art Group Established in 2003, Eyecandy has steadily developed a brand that is becoming known for high quality yet very affordable prices.
Others would seem to agree: it claims to have produced over 17,000 individual hand made orders in the past year across its wide range of offerings, which include various canvas products, acrylic, aluminium and framed products. While it is happy to take one off orders, Eyecandy can also deliver volume production for large-scale projects. If you're looking for products that your competitors might not be offering, it's also worth noting that many of the available mouldings, such as the ash gallery frame, are designed by Eyecandy and so exclusive to them.
It can also produce giclee prints for photographers though notes the market is plagued with misleading information regarding this product in particular, saying that many rival services use the correct ink but not necessarily the correct paper. By contrast Eyecandy tells us it has taken the time to have its media tested in the lab for pH and lightfast qualities and therefore can deliver genuine fine art prints with archival ratings of 75 years. Conservation materials are also used across its in house framing range made from sustainable resources where possible.
Also helping Eyecandy stand out from the crowd is that fact that it is continuously looking at new ways to display images and will often create products for bespoke projects. Its full print on demand service includes worldwide distribution to the customers' door.

Pro Photo Prints If you haven't heard the name before, ProPhotoPrints is part of the same family as ProAm Imaging and was founded to provide the large format and canvas wrap prints that ProAm themselves were unable to offer due to constraints of time and space. Its pitch can be summed up as superior large format printing for less and ProPhotoPrints hopes to do for large format printing what ProAm Imaging has already achieved in silver halide printing.
To do this the company has invested in what it considers are the best 12 ink large format printers available and only uses manufacturers' original pigment inks along with Fuji's Premium Paper & Artist Canvas to ensure highest quality results. It believes that once Socieities' members have tried its service they will want to keep on using ProPhotoPrints.
The full range of print sizes listed along with instructions of how to prepare and send your images are listed on the company's website where full secure online payment facilities can also be found.
