I would like to have top quality prints of some of my photos. I've tried every photo lab in my city and none produce acceptable product. (I have access to Canon IPF8300 large format printer but even this does not produce the top notch output I am looking for) I often use Posterjack here in Canada to order framed prints but I want to be offering only matted prints for sale. Posterjack does a fantastic job; they print on a thick Hahnemühle Photo Rag and I am yet to see a lab that does a better job. The problem, as is the case with all other online labs, is that there is not much flexibility when it comes to custum sizes. For example i want to order a a print with a large 2" border so that i can slide the sheet under a mat and trim it myself but Posterjack only cuts exact sizes.
I would like:
find a service in Canada (out of Canada shipping costs rule out any international service)
paper options with at least one option comparable to the Hahnemühle Photo Rag
flexible sizing with border options
Does a lab like this exist or am i dreaming?
