And so, the prices listed below are my regular print prices for each with the following minimum order requirements for each size.  Bear in mind, you may order a different image within each size requirement, multi-images are ok.  In other words, you could order 3 11×14’s of 3 different images…

LUXE Prints

SABphotography works with the highest of the high end, professional labs to provide the most elegant and sumptuous paper. I call them luxe, short for DeLuxe because that is exactly what they are!  Accurate color, realistic saturation, excellent neutral flesh reproduction are just a few of the benefits.  Standard Archival Value of 100 years in home display; 200 years in dark storage is the cream on top.

This is my “standard”  paper and it comes in matte or semi-gloss finish at prices listed below.  I am also pleased to offer “Metallic/ Pearl paper”, a high gloss paper which gives a 3D effect to your image and “True Matte” paper especially for B&W images for an additinal $6 per print and “Linen” finish, which is an actual texture finish for an additional $3 per print.  Add $3 for lustre finish to any print paper, which hides fingerprints like matte but saturates color like metallic without the high gloss.  I have samples of all of these papers i will be happy to show you:<)

4×6 $10
5×5 $15
5×7 $20
8×8 $25
8×10, 8×12 $30
10×10 $35
11×14 $45
12×12 $55
16×20 (larger sizes available, ask for pricing) $75
