Preview Prints Overview

Photographic Preview Prints are perfect when your client desires physical proofs. Printed on Luster Paper, Preview Prints come in 2 styles: Loose or Spiral-bound. Loose Preview Prints are offered in 5 sizes with optional borders. Spiral-bound Preview Prints make a wonderful flip-book for clients and are available in 4x6" or 5x7" prints with ½" black or white borders. Order images in the same print size to take advantage of volume pricing.

Check our current turnaround times especially during holidays and promotions. Normal estimated turnaround is 1-3 business days.



Preview Print Options

For Loose Preview Prints, choose from 3.5x5", 4x5", 4x6", 5x5" or 5x7" (all with or without borders). For Spiral-bound Preview Prints, choose from 4x6" or 5x7".



Luster surface is great for traditional printing and produces vivid color and excellent flesh tones. This paper is a traditional favorite for wedding, portrait and commercial photographers.
