Our “Consumer/Amateur Photographer” Experiment - Snapshot Prints

Since starting the lab, I have been deluged with requests from snapshooters and other amateur and consumer image makers for less expensive, yet green, 4x6 up to 8x12 prints. Being a high-end custom lab we have been focusing exclusively on discerning and demanding artists, photographers, art buyers/art consultants, galleries and museums. Our museum quality work demands time, labor, impressive color management, skill and only the finest, most archival materials.

We have recently decided to create an experiment - the world’s first virtually 100% green snapshot print service for amateur photographers and consumers (and, coincidentally, they also make great proofs for professionals). We launched the experimental service quietly with the merger and new name EcoVisualLab. We are now offering 4x6-inch non archival prints for as little as $1.00 each and archival prints for as little as $1.50. Larger 8x12-inch prints cost $4.50 each and $6.50 respectively. We’re carefully evaluating the impact on our workload as the process, though not custom and more automated, is still far too labor intensive to be scaled. If, however, demand seems to be great, we’ll look at alternative automated ways of accomplishing this.

To see more, visit and let us know what you think.  If you like what we offer, please tell your snapshot friends to give us a try. Just not too many of them please!
