Some examples:

Sizes and prices:

Heavyweight Paper
small: 22.0" wide x 14.5" high, $11.95
regular: 34.5" wide x 23.0" high, $15.95

Archival Canvas
small: 22.0" wide x 14.5" high, $49.95
regular: 34.5" wide x 23.0" high, $89.95


From the website, since they can word it better than I can:

All of the posters are available for purchase on heavyweight semi-gloss paper, premium heavyweight high-gloss canvas, or premium heavyweight matte canvas.
Heavyweight Semi-Gloss Paper and Dye-Based Inks
This poster paper is a substantial, very white printing material which we imprint with dye-based inks to create vibrant art and photo reproductions of our members' contributions. The inks produce brilliant images. The paper is heavyweight and suitable for framing.
Premium Heavyweight High-Gloss Canvas and Archival Inks
This canvas is a heavily-textured, natural-colored high-gloss printing material which we imprint with archival, pigmented inks to create the finest quality, and longest-lasting, art and photo reproductions of our members' contributions. The inks are UV-resistant and produce very long-lasting, brilliant, and well-saturated images while the canvas appropriately displays the texture, color, and three dimensional depth of the artist's vision. The canvas is mountable and most suitable for framing thereby creating a vibrant and lasting work of art that can be enjoyed for generations to come.
Premium Heavyweight Matte Canvas and Archival Inks
This canvas is a lightly-textured, white-colored matte printing material which we imprint with archival, pigmented inks to create the finest quality, and longest-lasting, art and photo reproductions of our members' contributions. The inks are UV-resistant and produce very long-lasting, brilliant, and well-saturated images while the canvas appropriately displays the texture, color, and three dimensional depth of the artist's vision. The canvas is mountable and most suitable for framing thereby creating a vibrant and lasting work of art that can be enjoyed for generations to come.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Why should I choose canvas?
A: The primary reason should be that you want the image to be archival (100+ years of fade resistance when displayed indoors). Also, canvas seems to add a certain "substance" to the photo or work of art that heavyweight paper simply cannot.

Q: Which canvas should I choose?
A: It is a matter of personal preference...and, may depend on the kind of image you want and the effect you are trying to accomplish. The high-gloss is very heavyweight, highly-textured, and highlights the image differently depending on lighting. It makes the image reminiscent of a painting. The matte is medium heavyweight, subtly textured, and displays the image consistently irrespective of lighting. It is a good choice for all images, but expecially appropriate for those where a textured surface is not desired.

Q: Which canvas is more expensive?
A: Neither. They are both top quality and the same price.


Zazzle handles all the order taking and shipping; some of the original art (the fused glass masks) are for sale through me. Just ask about prices.

Hello

Your id picture is beautiful

I also enjoyed your images, that you have on Zazzle.com

I was curious if you are happy with there service, and if there are other printers that you trust?

I'm thinking of using Zazzle do you have any advice?

Thanks

Hey, compliments!
Thank you.
I like you already.

Sadly, I'm too broke to order my own stuff, so I haven't seen a print first hand. I also have a few things on CafePress.com - if you open a store there, put "goldenokomis" as the referral store so I can get some referral money. :-x

CafePress allows you to sell (original) data and music CDs, and they'll allow you to design and sell small books there soon as well. I'm thinking of designing a few picture books for kids, or using some of my short stories and images - why not?

Cafe press vs zazzle

Postby Sonicgoo » Mon Jul 07, 2003 2:04 am

I've been over to Cafe Press, I like that they can use psd instead of .jpg

If I'm not mistaken Zazzle just uses the jpg format, I need to research that further, but a .jpg will damage the file slightly in the compression as it is a loss compression.

On the other hand I like the way zazzle is set up, Do you have a preference towards one or the other.

Once I'm sure of which one to use if either, I'm thinking of setting up auctions on Ebay for the prints, as a way to market them.

Sorry to be so geeky, but what are your thoughts or preferance?

By the way my favorite print of yours is the Forbidden Gardens

I'm glad that you like that one - I think that Arsenic Charming (Charming Arse) has a small print of that that I gave her...

I favor Zazzle - but only because it's slightly cheaper. I may expand and sell the same stuff on Cafe Press.

If you're going to sell the prints on eBay, why not use a local printer, or have bulk photo prints made from Ofoto or someone like them, and get good prices and high resolution?

Yep that is the thought in question, but the thing that pushes me towards zazzle or cafe press is that I don't have to invest any money upfront to start making prints, this allows for a larger porfolio of available work without any funds coming out of my pocket other than time.

I have a lot more time than money at the present moment lol
