Description

This shot shows the fantastic size (7 meters) but not what a fantastic job the printers made of it. Every square inch of it is like a regular sharp photo - because it *is* a photo, not a poster. You really have to see gigapan prints in the flesh - they are *astonishing*.

    If you really mean "cover" your wall, then £1000 is not an entirely unreasonable number - I guess. If you want a 7m long by 1.1m tall gigapan print then you can certainly get it done for less in the UK. I got my first print done at Prontoprint or Pesstaprint or whatever they are called - the people who have copy stores in most cities. There costs are roughly £50 a square metre. The problem with them is that you don't get any pre-press consultancy. The process is: you give them a disk with your image, they print it, you pay for whatever they give you. The results I got were OK but didn't encourage me to spend more money with them. It may be that this is somewhat short-sighted. The guy I spoke to was quite interested and I think he would have spent more time talking to me if I had asked.

    Ah, shame... I was hoping you'd found someone local. There are a few places in the UK I've found over the web who do more precisely what I want - these guys (www.bagsoflove.co.uk/interiors/pho tos-on-wallpaper.aspx Will open in
a new tab or window or www.conceptcoverings.co.uk/bespoke -wall-murals.html Will open in

    It was printed by the people that the CREATE lab use in Pittsburgh. I'm a Gigapan trainer and educator so CREATE had this made for me to take into schools etc so I don't know anything about the technical details. The paper is good but not the heaviest. The price - not that I had to pay it - was an astonishing $200. You will be lucky to find someone in the UK to do it for £200 and proper printers will quote you something like £600 - unless you know different.

    Who printed it for you? What spec of paper did they use? How much did it cost? I ask because I've got this 7m long wall in my lounge, and very little common sense...
