Hi all

Sometimes I get a US customer who wants a really large print- more than the 64MB limit on Zenfolio.

While I can get them printed in NZ and shipped, this adds an extra layer of expense. It's not cheap sending a tube-protected large print, with customs declarations etc, to, well, anywhere from NZ. Plus it also takes a lot longer.

Can anyone recommend a good US printer to deal with instead? Preferably one open to foreign clients from time to time, and able to make large prints to send direct to US.

Contact richmondcamera.com. I used to work there when I lived in Virginia. Always trusted their lab.They print up to 30" x 40", and mail across the US. They're generally open for customer service between 8am to 5pm, EST, although those hours may be less in today's business. They primarily serve wedding, sports and event photographers, and they list all their services on the website.

Thanks! I've sent them a request :-)

I never head back from them.
Fwiw, I ended up using Pikto in Canada. They provided an option for a 72"wide print on art paper and could ship to the US as well as Canada.
