At our last NYC workshop, we discussed some tips about printing photos into prints, books, zines, etc and I wanted to start a thread to discuss and share some suggestions on this experience because I hope it can inspire others to print and experiment!

We print our fine art prints with the talented Brian Milo at miloprints.com

For our ‘zine’ -esque prints we print at a local printshop in California. Work closely with one printer to see what type of binding, paper, printing they can do and experiment with different textured papers, binding, and laser/ink printing.

Printing and publishing is in an exciting time right now. Experiment, have fun, be your own publisher/promoter/artist! Bring together mixed media (I drew and linocut Eric’s photography for “The City of Angels Art Portfolio” and handmade the portfolio backing/sewed/glued/stitched it all together). Be playful and follow your curiosity.

From printing Eric’s stuff via HAPTIC, the biggest lesson I learned is

  1. Start with a small edition (number of books/prints)
  2. Always charge more. If you believe in your book/zine/product, then it is worth that value. Your time/labor/talents is not free.

What are some tips, resources about printing that you wish you knew before your printed or that you want to know?

A few people told me I was supposed to sell my cards. My problem is, I print these myself using a standard home printer, and the paper I use is simple card stock. If I were to sell my cards, I’d want them to be the correct postcards.

Is there a place where people know where I can get my postcards on demand so that I also read postcard printer reviews, maybe even the stickers? I don’t have a piece of money in front of me, and I’m not even sure if my cards would sell all that well, so don’t want to sink your money to get a stock of like 100 cards. Something like when I sell a card, x the supplier makes and sends my card, taking a little profit would be ideal. I don’t know if that’s a thing though.
