We offer Traditional Papers: Linen, Glossy, Luster, and Metallic. We also offer Hahnemuhle papers in Bayrta, Pearl, Bamboo, Photo Rag Bright White, Photo Rag, Sugar Cane, German Etching and Torchon.

What is the archival life of a photo print?
All of our papers have been tested for their archival quality and are predicted to last 85-100 years. All of our prints are also spayed with a UV protective coating.

What type of canvas do you use?
Our canvas is a high quality, water resistant poly-cotton blend. It has a PH neutral, acid free coating with a pure white point. This allows for greater consistency from print to print.

Are your canvas prints archival?
Every aspect of our prints are archival from the canvas and gesso to the ink and UV coating, all predicted to last 85-100 years.

Yes, our process is giclee. Giclee is the process of making fine art prints from a digital source using ink-jet printing.

File Color Space Information

What color space do you use?
We accept Adobe RGB, sRGB and ProPhoto color spaces, but the sRGB color space is recommended and preferred.

Do you use a color profile and is the profile available for download?
Yes, we do have a soft proofing profiles for our Fine Art Paper line that you can use to adjust your files. This allows you to proof your files under our printing conditions. Our soft proofing profile is both Mac and PC compatible. To locate, go to “Soft Proofing Profiles” under “Resources”. For Canvas Gallery Wraps, there is no soft proofing profile needed and the file can be adjusted in your working color space.

When saving a file, do I need to embed Simply Color Lab profile?
No. You do not want to embed our profile. You want to only view and adjust your images under the profile.

How do I know if my color is going to match what I see on my screen?
The first and most important step is to verify that your monitor is calibrated with a professional calibration device. If your monitor is calibrated, you will not see much shift in color. Most of the color shift occurs when your monitor is not calibrated. If you are nervous about color, you are more than welcome to request a test print for a small fee.

Basic Product Production

What is the largest paper print that can be produced?
Simply Color Lab offers sizes ranging from wallets to 43×100″.

Is there any type of protectant applied to the print?
A Water based UV coating. †It maintains the original integrity of the paper increasing the durability against scratching and damage while extending the life of the print.

What is the largest canvas size that can be produced?
Simply Color Lab offers sizes ranging from 6×6″ to 56×120″. Please check our canvas product list to see all available sizes.

What is the difference between the “hanging hardware” and the “black paper”?
The hanging hardware is a heavy duty wire that is across the back of the frame, which allows the print to hang flush along the wall. Adding hanging hardware to your canvas print allows it to be ready for display as soon as you or your customer receives it. Black paper covers the back of the print for a more finished look with a sawtooth hanger. The price of the hanging hardware is $5 and the black paper with sawtooth is $10.

Are the canvas prints sprayed with any type of protectant?
Yes, all of our prints are sprayed with a UV protectant that will protect your print from fading and cracking for many years to come.

Our standard stretcher frame is 1 1/2 inches. We also offer a 3/4 thin frame and a 2 1/2 inch frame.

What if my canvas print loosens overtime?
Don’t be alarmed. Simply Color Lab can send you small bottle of retention spray. Spray a light, even coat on the back of the print. Once the retention spray has dried, the canvas will tighten back to its original state.

Can I get a print on canvas without a frame?
Simply Color Lab offers rolled Non-Stretched canvas prints and Non-Stretched canvas prints mounted on Masonite.

Can I frame my gallery-wrapped canvas print?
Of course! Simply Color Lab offers beautiful Floating Frames that are available in different styles and colors. Our frames leave a 1/2″ space between the canvas and the edge of the frame to preserve the three dimensional look of the canvas.

Canvas File Prep Specifics

How do I need to prep my files for canvas printing?
The first step is to correctly setup your file for printing. Whatever your target size is for the front face of the canvas, you want to add an additional 4 inches for the height and the width. This will create a 2 inch border on each side for the wrap of the canvas. Second, pull your guide lines for your rulers in Photoshop 2 inches from each edge. This will create the template for your target size. Anything inside the guides will be on the front face of the canvas. Anything outside the lines will be the wrap of the canvas. Third, drag your image into the template and adjust the image to the cropping of your choice. Use the guides for placement of your image. For example, if you are ordering a 16×20, the file would need to be set up as a 20×24 at 300ppi.

What size file do I need for canvas printing?
We need you to size your images to your target size at 300ppi. Do not forget to add the additional 4 inches to create a 2 inch border on each size for the wrap of the canvas!

What type of adjustments do I need to make to my files for canvas prints?
Treat your files in the same manner you treat your paper prints. If you do all your color correcting and adjustments yourself, by all means treat your files for Simply Color the same. If normally your lab does the adjustments for you, no fear! Our printing technicians in the printing department will do the adjustments for you.

If the frame is 1.5 inches thick, why do I need to add two inches on each side of my file ?
We have you add 2 inches on each side because a 1/2″ from each edge will wrap around the back of the frame where it is stapled and assembled.

If I order a split panel, how do I need to set up the file?
Setting up a split panel can be tricky. First determine your overall target size for the front face of the canvas. Second, decide how you want to split your image. You can split your image into even panels or uneven panels. Once you have decided how many panels you want, pull guides at each dimension where the panel will split. Third, remember to add an additional 4 inches to your height and width for the outside wrap of your images. Fourth, pull additional guides two inches from each original guide that you placed to split the image. Then crop each panel of the image using the adjusted guides. Simply Color Lab does offer a split image set-up service including a digital proof sent via email for a flat fee of $25.00.

Fine Art Paper, Simply Vivid™ Prints File Prep

What type of files would you prefer for paper prints?
Simply Color Lab prefers that you submit your images as jpg’s when uploading your files. If you have a question about a file type, feel free to contact us for more information.
Canvas files should be a minimum of 300ppi at target dimensions.
Paper print files should be a minimum of 200ppi at target dimensions.
Vivid Prints and Press product files should be a minimum of 300ppi at target dimensions.

Do we scan negatives?
To ensure a high level quality print, Simply Color Lab only accepts digital files.

Do you offer color correction?
Color Correction is Free on Fine Art and Canvas prints and charged by the print for Vivid Prints. and Press Printed Products are color corrected at a rate of 1.50 per panel. Our printing technicians can also retouch your photos and complete Photoshop work for a small fee.

Can I do my own color correcting?
If you choose to color correct your own images we highly recommend downloading and previewing your images using our soft proofing profiles on a correctly calibrated monitor. If you choose to have Simply Color Lab correct your file, our trained printing experts will print for best possible color and density. Color and density is subjective and prints may appear differently under varied lighting conditions. Reprints due to color and density will be reviewed on a per print basis and may, at our request, require a matched paper print to be supplied to insure satisfaction.

Do I need to set up my files before ordering it in the ROES ordering software?
We highly suggest that you set up your files in Photoshop before ordering it in ROES. This way you can check to make sure that all of your files are set up properly.

What file format should I submit files?
We prefer a high level JPG (quality 12).

Will my image be pixilated?
Absolutely not! If your file is crisp going in, it will be crisp coming out, as long as the dpi is correct. We need your file to be sized at actual size 300ppi for Canvas, 200ppi for Fine Art Prints, and 300ppi for Vivid Prints, Press Printed Products, and Specialty Photo Products.
