Saving your file for upload

We accept only JPEG or TIFF files at Metroprint.


Remember to crop your file, add any borders you would like and save your file at the correct resolution as RGB JPEG or TIFF (all TIFF files must be flattened and 8 bit), for help on how to this, visit our other tutorials on our how to pages.

1. When you are saving your files, please avoid unrecognised characters in filenames, such as asterisks, commas, apostrophes and quotation marks.

2. Please make sure you save the correct file extension on your images (e.g. .jpg).

3. We recommend you save your files as TIFFs to avoid the image being degraded when compressed into a jpeg. Make sure your Tifs have no compression either!

(Transfer rates may vary from a few seconds to multiple hours, depending on your file size and your Internet connection.)

Photo Printing

Prints ready for collection within 24 hours, or for delivery worldwide. We can produce prints in sizes from a simple 6×4 up to 2.74m x 1.22m / 108 x 48 inches, giving you a huge choice of sizes when it comes to producing your prints.

Fine Art Giclee printing

While all of our colour and black and white photo printing services are of gallery quality, a lot of photographers and artists like to produce their fine art prints on Giclee watercolour paper, using archival pigment inks.

Black & White printing

We can produce real Silver Gelatin 'Darkroom prints' from your digital files. Working with Ilford, we are able to print directly to Ilford Galerie Silver FB Glossy fibre based bromide photo paper and Ilford Galerie Digital Silver RC Pearl.

Mounting your prints

After your photos have been printed, our mounting team are able to mount the prints on a range of substrates, ranging from the lightweight foamex, foamboard or kapamount. We can also mount ctype photo prints onto more sturdy materials such as dibond or aluminium, backed with either battens or a subframe, depending on print size.

Framing your photos

When ordering online, we offer a limited range of classic photo frames, in three finishes: white photo frame, smooth black photo frame or a solid light oak frame. Alternately, just order your prints online to take advantage of our great value online ordering system, then contact us to discuss alternate framing styles and our range of thousands of frame mouldings.
