Two reasons to get downloaded digital art images printed professionally

Posted on

It is now possible to download a range of art images in digital file form from online shops and then print them at your convenience when you're ready to put the prints on display. Whilst you can print these images at home with your own printer, it's best to give these files to a printing company and have them print the images for you. Here are two reasons why.

You can print the images in much larger sizes

Most art prints that are sold as digital files can be printed in a wide range of sizes. However, if you have a standard domestic printer, then you probably cannot print any images larger than A4 on it. This can limit you somewhat in terms of how you use these prints to decorate your home, as in many types of rooms (particularly those that have high ceilings or are very spacious), prints often look better if they're much larger than A4.

If you feel that some of the digital art images you've purchased would look more in proportion with the rooms or hallways that you're going to display them if they were printed in, for example, A2 or even A1, you should give your local printing company the files and have them print them out for you. Printing companies not only have printers that can produce all of the common smaller-sized prints but also usually have bigger printers that can produce the much larger aforementioned sizes. Doing this will mean that the art images you get printed and hang up will be proportional to the spaces you want to keep them in.

Your prints will be of a much higher quality

It's a common misconception that a digital art file will look the same, no matter what type of printer a person uses to print it out. This is not true, and if you're planning to display the art images you've purchased in your home or workplace for a long time, it's important to let a printing specialist produce the prints for you.

The reason for this is that your basic domestic printer will not have the high-quality inks or the specialist settings that can enable a printing company to make your prints look outstanding, in terms of the richness and range of the colours and the crispness of the lines. Additionally, a printing company can also print your art images on professional, archival paper that will also elevate the quality of the art images and enhance their beauty.
