Quality large Format printing

I use an HP Z3100 printer that produces the highest quality prints available. The inks have an up to 200year durability, and the materials I print on (Breathing Colour, Sihl and others) are among the best in the world. All images that I print from are corrected to give the best possible result, I can alter backgrounds, colours, blend images and use any photoshop magic you can imagine. Prices are approx. 10cents per square inch for papers. 15-18 cents per inch for canvas. (Reduced rates until recession improves.) 10c or less for canvas and 5c for paper.
