GETTING YOUR FILES PRINTED
There are so many ways to get your files printed, from home printers to working with a company on-line. I always suggest spending the extra money and doing it right if you want to hang this on your walls for years. Below are some of the companies I have worked with over the years and recommend!
HEADS OF HIP HOP FILES
- All our files are 16x20 inches (scalable to 11x14, 8.5x11)
- All the files are output as flat JPEG to avoid submission issues
- Our files are saved as 300 dpi for high quality print
* We recommend using archival quality materials
PRINTED ON CANVAS
I really love these on canvas far more than simple paper prints. I have only used the company Canvas Prints so far, but the images translated over really well. Most of the companies out there print using archival quality ink on archival quality canvas, so the paintings will not yellow or fade over time. In the image above I selected black sides, which look pretty good without needing to get these framed. I am sure framing theme would take them up a notch in appearance.
* I suggest checking them all for sales (which happen often)
POSTERS PRINTED ON PAPER
Many of you will just do simple prints on paper. I would suggest using a company like Vista Prints which does high quality print jobs. There are other similar print companies out there, but in the end you get what you pay for. I created the files as high resolution JPEG files so there should no issues with uploading them to any service and getting the highest resolution possible at 16x20 I am able to provide with 300dpi outputs.
FINAL WORDS FROM JIMMY LOVE
I really hope these prints bring you some joy, and help spread the love of Hip Hop even further. If you have any issue with the files please reach out so I can get the files updated for you and others.
