  • who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)?

    who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)? I'm just looking to get a poster printed and usually for school I go with kinkos just because it's a 24hr business near me...granted thier capabilities are limited, but I do not know their ability to print a nice solid black on a larger sized print like 24"x36" (or even tabloid size for that matter), nor do i know if copymax or sir speedy could do a satisfactory job. So I ask you all, if you had to choose between those 3, who would you go with, for who can print a nice clean black very solid?

    I would specify that the print have no banding (see disclaimer in red below). They may have to run their machine at a slower, higher quality speed to do it and it may cost you extra.

    I would also ask them what a good rich black is so you get full coverage.

    It's up to you to ask for what you want, ask to see sample prints, and pay for a proof - not hope for the best.

    Some of those shops have great techs and good quality printers, others don't. They are franchises with owners of varying skills. If they can't answer the rich black question, move on.

      Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

      You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

      I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

      Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

      No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...

      Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

      I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
