Feature Friday: Prints | CT Photographer

Well with the launch of my new blog site, I decided I would love to do a series called “Feature Friday”. Each week I will post something that I feel needs to be featured. It will be focusing on Products, Inspiration, Vendors & Local CT Businesses.


To start this week, I would like to focus on Prints. In the past couple years with the rise of the Digital Age, they have really seemed to have gotten a bad rep. But Why? It seems that with these companies that offer printing cheap are making it look like photographers are just out to take your money. Charging a significant mark up for a print that you can get printed for $0.12. That is not the case at all & frankly a whole other post that I can write about later.

I absolutely LOVE the prints that I offer & stand behind them 150%. They are not the same $1 print that you would be getting at a local department store or drugstore. Prints from Elizabeth Frederick Photography are printed on professional photo paper and sprayed with a  lustre coating. Prints 4×6 and larger come mounted on a matboard to retain it’s shape and have a linen texture. You must be asking what all this means, I sure know I asked the same questions. A lustre coating is a matted like texture on the print, it protects the image against glare & finger prints. Mounting the image means your not getting some flimsy piece of paper with your photo on it. I do this to help save the print from wrinkling or tearing. Plus it makes it much more simpler to put in a frame. All prints come in boutique style print boxes & all print orders come with the low resolution web optimized digital images complimentary, so you can still show off your images to family & friends on the internet.

One thing to be mindful of when ordering prints is size. The saying  that “Bigger is Better” generally applies to Photography. Now this is not a sales pitch, it’s just how I genuinely feel. Look for yourself:


Here is an example of how an 8×10 would look behind a couch. Doesn’t it look cute? But what is the picture of?

Now here is the same couch, but with an 11×14. Looks a little better right? Can see it a little more.

Let’s try a 16×20. Looks better right? Starting to see that beautiful little girl.

Let’s go really big now, how about a 20×30?

Now that has some “WOW” factor! You can definitely stand across the room and know exactly who is in that picture!

Now here is a comparison of prints side by side. Look how amazing that 30×40 looks compared to the rest.


In closing, you have hired a Photographer to take AMAZING photos of you & your family, so why waste all that money & purchase the disc to print at a local department or drug store who have no idea what they are doing. Ensure that your investment is well taken care of & that your incredible photos you see online are the same photos you cover your walls with!

*Feature Friday is a series of posts where I will feature other local businesses here in Connecticut on the blog.
