Price List

A 1 to 3 inch border is included, varying with size of the image. A single proof (not necessarily of the same size) is included in the price and must be approved before the final print. There will be a charge for additional proofs. Proofs are kept for reference at Ignotus Editions.

Files should meet the following guidelines:

  • Have an attached color profile (We recommend Adobe RGB)
  • Preferred format: RGB uncompressed TIFF format, with all layers flattened (LZW-compressed is probably fine, too)
  • Pre-sized to desired dimensions
  • 180 to 480 pixels per inch at size
  • Files in JPEG format: 300 dpi at size

Artists are urged to preview their work on a calibrated display to help them make decisions about color. I cannot assure accurate color without previewing and proofing.

A 10% discount is available for additional copies of a print. Discounts are available for large orders (over $1000). Printing to roll media (24-, 36- and 44-inch wide rolls) has a base price of $9.60/linear inch for 24-inch media, including margins top and bottom. Media which is not ready to print will incur a charge or $100/hr (in 15-minute increments) for any setup time, color correction, etc. exceeding 15 minutes. That said, my principal aim is to collaborate with artists and I will charge a negotiable flat fee for that if we discuss it beforehand.

Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gm is also available. I have various sizes in stock, contact me for more information. Canvas is available at 36 and 44 in. wide. I have a small supply of Epson Somerset Velvet 24 x 30 in., a very heavy weight sheet paper. Of course, I can print on just about any art paper. If you send me a sample, I can create color profiles for you to assure color accuracy throughout the workflow. Please contact me for pricing.

Lately, I have been printing to Moab Entrada Rag Bright and Moab Entrada Rag Natural papers with excellent results. I have found Epson’s new Hot-Press papers to be really excellent for detail. I also have backlit transparency film and Tyvek outdoor signage banner on hand. The Tyvek can be cut, folded, sewn, and pasted. It’s a very interesting material, bright and dimensionally very stable, but its archival quality is somewhat uncertain. I have sample books for Canson, Museo, and Moab digital printing papers, both for photography and fine art, and samples of various Epson papers. Prices may vary, depending on the cost of the printing surface, but usually will not be less than those indicated above.

Ignotus Editions prints on fine art papers with a matte finish. We can print on “luster,” satin or glossy finished paper that has the quality of resin-coated photography papers, but that requires changing the black ink on the printer. Changing inks results in a loss of ink due to ink flushing, so we only will change ink for special projects or for a sufficiently large order.

We are happy to offer quotes on a per-project basis. Paper can be special ordered for large scale projects or you can supply your own. If you want to supply your own paper you will need color profiles.

Fine Art Reproduction: The Epson printer can produce exquisitely exact color reproductions of flat art, but the reproduction is only as good as the scan. Printer Paul Hertz worked with color reproduction while studying color workflow and can show you samples of what is possible with a high quality scan. Though we have a scanner and professional lighting and camera, the studio is not equipped for optimal quality scanning. There are a number of places in Chicago that do offer scanning services.

File storage and print on demand: Files will be stored at Ignotus Editions for six months after printing, and can be printed again on request. Contact us if you are interested in print on demand services for editions.
