We offer fully archival inkjet printing on the Epson SureColor P8000 printer. The Epson Ultrachrome ink system produces beautiful, high quality inkjet prints that have up to 200-year archival ratings for full color images. Prints can be up to 44 inches wide and 529 inches long.
Each image submitted to our lab is printed to match what we see on our professionally calibrated monitor. This monitor is capable of showing 100% of the Adobe RGB (1998) and sRGB color spaces and 98% of the P3 color space. For accuracy, each print is also hard proofed under the ISO 3664:2009 industry viewing standard and the print file is fine tuned until it matches as closely as possible to what we see on our monitor.
If you are interested in calibrating your own monitor or learning more about the correct color space for your images, we would be happy to help in any way that we can!

INTERESTED IN PRICING?
You can view a price sheet of all Maine Photo Works products and services here. Please note, many of our products are available in fully custom sizes. If you aren’t sure what size you need, we recommend reaching out to us rather than ordering through the website.
HOW DO I ORDER PRINTS?
If you already have your digital files, you can order online, send us an email, or stop into our studio during our regular business hours with your files. If this is your first time ordering with us, please don't hesitate to reach out to us with any questions before placing your order online.
Please note that we only offer our most popular print sizes for online ordering. If you are interested in large and/or custom prints, please visit our Custom Orders page to learn more.
WILL MY IMAGE FILE GET CROPPED?
If you use our online ordering system, you will crop your image to the aspect ratio of the sheet size selected. If you do not want your image cropped and are not sure what aspect ratio it is, simply upload your image(s) here and we can suggest a standard size or other solution according to your needs!
DO YOU DO GICLEE PRINTING?
Yes, the printing we do on the fine art papers and canvas would be considered giclee. The term simply refers to archival inkjet printing on fine art or cotton papers.
I RECENTLY HAD PRINTS DONE AT ANOTHER BUSINESS AND THEY CAME OUT POORLY. CAN YOU DO BETTER?
In almost every instance, yes. While a 100% match is never possible, we have a fully color managed workflow and follow graphics industry standards with the goal of producing prints as close to what we see on the monitor as possible.
In some special cases, a digital file does come up against the limitations of particular papers or was set up in such a way that matching it in print will be difficult. For this reason, the best place to start is with a free 15-30 minute consultation. If you are able to come into the studio, we will sit down with you to preview your image on our monitor, go over the paper options, and explain any issues there might be with your file. Please contact us if you are interested in a consultation!
WHAT COLOR SPACE SHOULD MY FILES BE IN?
We work on monitors that are able to display 100% of the Adobe RGB (1998) and sRGB color spaces and 98% of the P3 color space. For most, the sRGB space is going to provide the best results in print. However, the color space that you choose really depends on the device you used to edit it on and the device you used to capture it. If you’d like to know the best color space to use for your situation, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We can discuss your equipment and work flow and then decide what color space will produce the most accurate results in print.
STILL WORRIED ABOUT COLOR?
If it’s your first time ordering with us and you are concerned about getting the best possible results, it’s probably best to start with a test print. What this means is we print a strip of your image at the intended size on the paper you are interested in using. This will help us understand any discrepancies between our monitors so that we can address those issues before we get to the final print.
STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?
Please feel free to contact us or stop into the studio! We often take orders via email or in person for those who aren’t sure what they need. We are also happy to schedule you a one-on-one appointment here in our studio to discuss your order, look at the paper samples, and help guide you through the ordering process.
