After a few recent conversations, I think it's time I posted a reminder of why sourcing prints through your photographer is so important!
Professional file management - If 'Why is my photo pixelated?' or 'Why is my head cropped off?' sounds like you...
Warranty - we're perfectionists and know how our work should look. In fact, my canvases have a 75 year unconditional replacement guarantee (even covering accidental damage!).
Archival paper/ink - it's a completely different paper stock and far superior printing method to any major retailer.
Ready to display - by the time you've bought a print, found a frame, bent the photo trying to tape it into the frame and put the hanger on the back... you could've let me handle it all for you.
Calibration - as great as Kmart is, printing and colour reproduction isn't their strong suit, and we all know my bright photos are my jam.
