GETTING STARTED

Your first step is to share the details of your project with us. You can make an appointment to stop by the lab to see paper and print samples and get a detailed quote for the job. After that, Silver Eye can produce a small test print for each of your images for your review before we run the full job. Once you've signed off on the test prints, we’ll run the job and have prints ready for you within a few days. 

Labor

Scanning, print finishing, framing, retouching, color correction, dusting, and other labor are billed at $50 per hour.
