Canvas Print Discount for the UK Folks

[tweetmeme]1ClickPrint is offering up a special discount code for the readers of Epic Edits. They provide all sorts of printing services, but this discount applies to their canvas printing. And since they are a UK based company, their offer extends only to the UK and Ireland. So here’s the deal:

Take a £10 discount on canvas prints. There’s no minimum purchase needed to use the code and they deliver for free. The offer is good for all of 2010.

DISCOUNT CODE: 1576646293

The code can be used online, over the phone, or in store. They have branches in Sheffield, Doncaster, and Dinnington. So if you’re out that way and you are thinking about printing on canvas, maybe give these guys a shot and use that discount!

Anybody have experience with 1ClickPrint and their canvas printing services?

New Discount on Canvas Prints

A few months back, I mentioned a deal from Canvas People for getting a free 8×10 canvas print. Well, that offer has passed, but they have another one up for grabs right now.

Canvas People is giving a $25 discount plus free shipping on any of their canvas prints. This evens out the playing field for those of you not living in the US (I’m assuming there are no location restrictions since I didn’t see any on their site). This post contains affiliate links.

8×10 canvas prints start at $50 without the discount, and go all the way up to 18×24 for $100 without the discount. Not bad pricing considering that includes a gallery wrap and protective coating. Frames and photo touch-ups come at an extra cost.

[tweetmeme]Canvas people has also added some features and helpful hints to the upload/order process. They give you a preview of the image as it will appear on the gallery wrap and they’ve added some extra explanations for sizing your images prior to upload.

I don’t know how long this offer will last, but if you’ve been thinking of doing a canvas print, now is the time!

Special Offer: Analog Prints for $25 Each

Old Bessie

After spending countless hours in the darkroom over the last few months, I’ve come to a point where I’m ready to offer up a few prints at a discount. I’ve learned a lot of new things and I’ve experimented on a fair amount of prints. At this point, I’m comfortable making a good looking print from most of my shots (there are a few that I still can’t get totally right).

Taking a look back at my film shots, I’ve picked out 10 photos for this print offer. These 10 either did well on Flickr (lots of interest in the comments), or they’re a personal favorite of mine. In any case, I tried to choose a good mix of genres and subjects — so hopefully you can find something you like.

LIMITED-TIME OFFER

I’ll be taking orders for this special offer for 2 weeks — so the cutoff is around April 17, 2009. This is a one-time offer for these particular prints, though I may or may not do something like this again in the future with different prints.

As an extra-special offer, I’ll throw in a second print of your choice at no additional cost — but only for the first 3 days! So if you want two prints for the price of one, get your order in by April 4, 2009. Just purchase one print and I’ll email you asking for your second selection (they can be two different prints). UPDATE: The 2 for 1 deal is over, but you can still get single prints!

ABOUT THE PRINTS

Again, all of these prints are produced in the darkroom using an optical enlarger with high quality lenses. These are not digital prints from film or print scans — I’ll be creating each one by hand using the old analog techniques.

The paper measures 8″ x 10″ and the prints have a 3/16″ border all around. This leaves about 7-5/8″ x 9-5/8″ of actual print, and most 8×10 frames are 7-1/2″ x 9-1/2″ so they should fit perfectly without showing border. The square prints measure 8″ x 8″.

The photos are printed on Ilford MGIV Deluxe RC Pearl Finish paper, so they have a little bit of shine to them while being a bit more scratch resistant than glossy paper. Though the paper is not archival quality fibre paper, I would expect these prints to last many years without signs of aging.

The prints are not signed, and they are not limited editions. If that’s what you’re looking for, you can still get one at regular price any time — but I may do a similar special offer for discounted signed prints in the near future.

PRINT SELECTIONS – $25 EACH

What you see below is pretty much what you’ll get — these are actually print scans and I tried to match the tones as close as possible. That said, the prints still look different… but in a good way.

To purchase, just click the button next to the print and you’ll be whisked away to PayPal for the transaction. Once that payment goes through, I’ll email you with a confirmation. I’ll ship to anywhere in the world at no extra cost. If you guys have any questions, just let me know in the comments.

UPDATE: The print offer has officially passed. If you would still like a print from the images below, please contact me directly.

Digital WakeUp Call + Photo Contest

Digital WakeUp Call

Learning about photography online is a great method for improving your game, but real-live instruction and interaction is far more valuable. I’m excited to announce that David Ziser will be traveling the country (to 58 US cities!) and sharing his great knowledge of photography, lighting, post-production, and marketing with his Digital WakeUp Call.

The class alone is worth the entry fee of $79, but David is taking things a step further. Everybody will receive $350 worth of extended content and giveaways. PLUS, he’s got $3,500 in prizes to give away at each session and $6,000 in grand prizes for the whole tour!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

David Ziser is a master of his trade, and he’s a well established photographer and educator. The class is aimed at wedding and portrait photographers, but it will certainly be useful for any type of photographer. In this program, he’ll be covering three main topics over the course of a full 4-hour evening:

  1. Lighting Techniques
    An intensive session on creative lighting and exciting composition, for both on-camera and off-camera flash.
  2. Post-Production Workflow
    A discussion of five major workflow techniques, tips, and shortcuts aimed to reduce your time at the computer and improve your quality.
  3. Business Strategies
    A discussion of creative and effective business strategies, no matter what level you’re at with your photography business.

$20-OFF PROMO CODE: ZEEDWC09

If you want to register for the program, just visit the Digital WakeUp Call Tour website, find a location near you, and register for that spot. Be sure to use the promo code above to get a $20 rebate on the registration fee! That brings the price down to $59 — totally worth it for what you’ll be learning!

COMPETE FOR A FREE PASS

Not only is David giving out $20 discounts, he’s also offering a free ride for one reader of Epic Edits. We’re doing this as a photo contest, with the topic of “Exciting Lighting”. Just submit your image or link in the comments below — 1 photo/entry per person.

Here’s the only catch: the image must have been created using a portable flash. It could be on-camera or off-camera, either way is fine. The contest is open to US residents only (David’s tour isn’t international this year).

I’ll pick the winning image in one week — March 12, 2009.

SO REMEMBER…

First and foremost, visit the official Digital WakeUp Call website to read all about this program. If you’re interested in attending, use the promo code above to save yourself $20. Or if you want to try for a free ride, post your best “Exciting Lighting” photo in the comments of this post.

And for you photography bloggers out there, check out David’s recent blog post for more information on offering your readers the same $20 discount while getting yourself a free pass to the program.

I’ll definitely be attending the San Diego session on May 21. Though I’m not a wedding or portrait photographer, I know that I’ll learn a ton of great stuff from David.
