Whether you’re printing photos, posters, or other images on metal, Toronto Photo Lab can help. We offer high-quality prints and metal finishes that will last for years to come. The key is making sure your image looks its best before selecting a print material and size. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your print project:
Print your image at a high resolution.
The resolution of an image is defined by the number of pixels per inch (PPI). The higher the PPI, the sharper and more detailed your print will be. To change this after you’ve selected your artwork, go to “Manage Your Order” on our website and click “Edit Print Size” under each image you want to edit. This will open up a larger window where you can adjust its size before printing so that it’s exactly how you want it!
If someone else wants to change their printer settings before we print—or if they’re just curious about what kind of quality prints are possible from our lab—they can do so by following these steps:
Choose the right print material, and give it your best color calibration.
The best print material for your project depends on the image you want to print. You can choose from a variety of print materials, like metal, photo paper, acrylic, and more.
If you’re going to use a metal plate in the printing process then the surface must be clean and free of dust or dirt so that there are no scratches or fill marks when they come out of the printer.
Make sure you have the right file type for your printer.
The file type you choose for your print is important because it can impact the quality of your image. For example, if you use a JPEG file to print on an inkjet printer, there will be some loss in quality due to its compression process. A TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) or JPG (JPEG) may be better options based on what kind of printer you have and what else is going on at the time.
If possible, we recommend using a large format scanner when scanning images so they can be easily printed without any distortion or loss of detail. The best way to know if this will work for you is by testing it out yourself!
Understand how many pixels you need for your image.
The number of pixels in your image is important for print quality. The more pixels you have, the better your print will look.
The size of the print can also determine how many pixels are needed for it to look good on paper or canvas. If you want a small piece of artwork with just one color and no details, then a single-color photo may be enough resolution for that type of print; however, if you want something larger (like an 8×10), then this might not be possible without additional detail loss due to having too few colors per square inch (PPI). Therefore it’s best to start with higher resolutions until we get closer to our desired final output size before making any adjustments later on down the line!
Know what size and format to use for different projects.
- Size and format: Think about the size and format of your print before you start the printing process.
- Size: The size of your photo is dependent on how large you want it to be other items in a frame or on an album. For example, if you’re using an 8×10 inch print as a mat for framing something else that requires more space (such as a larger piece of artwork), then choose this size so that it fits comfortably within its frame without being too big or small for the overall design. If you’re planning on displaying only one picture at home or work with minimal wall space available for hanging frames and other accessories then stick with 4×6 inch prints since most people don’t need much bigger than this anyways!
- Formatting options include these types:
- Metal prints come either flat/painted directly onto metal sheets;
- Acrylics are printed onto acrylic sheets which can be mounted onto walls/floors etc.;
- Canvas artworks are made up of cloths that are glued onto boards using special glue called “Gesso” which adds strength but doesn’t change colors over time because canvas dries out quickly when exposed outside air gets moisture into its fibers through raindrops falling onto them during storms outside our homes.

When you’re printing a photo, it’s important to understand the process and what materials you’re using. Printing a document is similar to printing a photo:
- You need good images.
- You need to understand the printing process and what kind of material(s) are used in your job.
- You need to know how large or small the print will be before starting with an order so that there aren’t any surprises along the way (like getting charged extra fees).
