How long does it take to make my picture?

In our product or category descriptions, you will find the average production times or the exact printing dates and deadlines for data submission.

I am unsure if the size of my image is sufficient. What can I do?

We check your data for the appropriate resolution for the desired size and whether the image proportions fit. If there are any problems or ambiguities, we will contact you.

What is the exact ordering process?

You either order your image in our online store Berlinprint.de or send us the file via our individual order with the appropriate info and your wishes noted.

For both order options, after we have successfully reviewed your data, you will receive an e-mail containing our invoice with the payment terms and informing you of the expected completion or shipping date.

If you have paid our invoice in advance, you can come to pick up your print at any time during our business hours from the completion date. Payment on site is possible by German EC card or cash. For staff reasons, however, we are happy if you have already paid in advance. This is possible by bank transfer or Paypal.

If your data is not readily printable, we will contact you in advance to inquire.

Can I pick up my print in person?

You can come to our retail store in Berlin-Friedrichshain for collection at any time from the notified completion date during our business hours from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5:30 pm. Since we currently do not have the store open directly due to staffing reasons, then please just knock on our door.

How much does it cost to have a photo printed?

Prices for printing a photo start at 30 x 20 cm with 4,02 EUR. The printing price always depends on the chosen material and the size of the image. The resolution of your photo has an influence on which sizes are still well printable.

What format to print photos?

The aspect ratio of the photo should match the aspect ratio of the format to be printed. Many cameras take photos in the aspect ratio of 3:2 or 4:3. This results, for example, in a photo in the format 30 x 20 cm or with the 4:3 aspect ratio the format 40 x 30 cm. Optimal photo file FORMATS are jpg files, as these are not too large due to their compression and are therefore easy to send. But also png and tif are possible.

How can I print pictures from my cell phone?

You can email pictures from your smartphone directly to us on demand and have them printed on high-quality photo paper. Or you can upload your photos to be printed via our webshop during the order process.

Advantages of inkjet printing

In inkjet printing, the ink/pigment is applied directly to and absorbed by the print material. Inkjet technology allows a wide range of materials to be used for printing, from normal "coated" photo paper to coarser cotton materials such as watercolor paper and canvas. This also makes art prints on artist materials possible.

Quality and variety

Unlike photographic technology, an inkjet printer prints a fixed number of dots in a limited area. To create tonal differences, a printer prints larger dots in dark areas and smaller dots in light areas. Photos printed using inkjet printing are therefore often perceived as having greater contrast and sharpness than exposed photos. The color gamut of inkjet printed photos can also be larger in parts of the color space than the color gamut of an exposed photo.

In terms of possible printing materials, there are a variety of surfaces and materials such as watercolor papers, foils, fabrics, and more. Since the ink is applied to the surface of the material, a photo print can be more sensitive to handling compared to a photographically developed image. This is especially important to keep in mind when handling matte papers.

Durability photo prints vs. photo exposures

There is much debate in the industry about which technology produces the images with the longest lifespan. A photographic image is said to have a lifespan of about 40 years in daylight and about 80 years in an archival environment. Inkjet printer manufacturers claim that a print will last about 40 years in daylight and about 200 years in an archival environment. However, claims of longevity should be taken with a grain of salt. More on this in the next paragraph.

The lifespan of an image, regardless of the technology, is highly dependent on the circumstances in which the image is hung or stored. Circumstances that affect the longevity of a picture include sunlight, humidity and temperature differences, coloration and framing, glass used, but first and foremost the long-term stability of the paper used as well as the printing inks. You can find out more about this in our Fineart print area.
