Why, a life-sized portrait, of course. Not a former president or a narcissist? That’s okay, too. You can print any image on our Epson photo and archival printer for a gift that is personalized, eye-catching, and unique.

This is one of those things that we can do for you — you bring an image or photo, we print it — or if you’re a member, you can learn to do it yourself just by taking our Epson Photo and Archival Printing class. You can enlarge and duplicate family photos, print out artwork, or recreate a photo album. You can also create your own holiday cards — take a family photo, create a template, tile and arrange them, and print out a whole slew and then cut them to size on our paper cutter.

We stock a variety of paper, including Museo Silver Rag, Epson Photo Luster, Epson Presentation Matte, and Hahnemühle German Etching, and you can also bring your own media.

Here are the machine specs: the Epson Stylus Pro 9900 can print up to 43.75” wide; there are 11 color ink cartridges; and ink will last up to 200 years.

We jest. It’s not Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter solstice, Boxing Day or Kwanzaa yet, but it is the day after Thanksgiving. And as such, we are pleased to bring you a series of holiday-themed blog entries. To get you in the spirit.

First up! Holiday parties! There are a number of variations — company, partner’s company, clients’, friends’, ugly sweater, black-tie and potluck — but they all have the common theme of meeting new people, and impressing them when possible. For that reason, we’d like to recommend you stop by NextFab stat to create some business cards.

We get it. You have business cards. But are your business cards laser-cut, with detail down to 0.01”? And etched in varying intensities? And on any medium you want — leather, photo paper, archival paper, beef jerky, handmade recycled paper, cheese? And, natch, any color you can imagine.

If you’re an artist, having a business card that is a work of art is a pretty straightforward concept. But even if you’re not, why not be memorable? Accountants, sales reps, engineers and administrative professionals all deserve to have unique, beautiful business cards.

So come up with a design, pick out what medium to use, and sign up for our Custom-Cut Business Card class. All the deets are available in our earlier blog post on the class, and both members and non-members can sign up at our Classes calendar.
