    Outsoursing printing large and shipping to customers.

    Guys,

    I am based in Russia, Moscow. From time to time I have U.S. based customers asking to sell my photos in medium and large format prints. I was thinking about using a U.S. based printing service with online file uploading to have them print my work in the U.S. and have them mail the printed photos to the clients addresses in the U.S. I think it should be a much cheaper and faster way to handle such orders than print them here and ship them across the Atlantic. The only thing I am concerned about is quality of print jobs and ability to print on exhibition quality papers (e.g. Epson Traditional Photo Paper).

    If someone is outsourcing printing jobs and shipping of prints to customers in the U.S., could you please direct me towards a service that has proven best to you ?

    Thanks!

    How are you going to sign them?

    Good question, Ben! I don't see any other option, but to paste a scan of my signiture in the appropriate place on the photo before I upload the file, I guess.

    U can always send him your signature in he will put it in the print. That is how I had done when I cant print it.
