Custom photo printing

Exhibition quality printing custom made by our imaging experts.

The Image Flow offers custom, exhibition quality, archival photo printing (often referred to as giclée printing) using the finest quality papers and printing process. We create professional photo prints for all settings, from intimate home décor to high-end gallery presentations. Our knowledgeable technicians are ready to work with you on all your custom photo printing needs, delivering a finished product you’ll be proud to display.

We have perfected the archival pigment printing process for many clients, and we’d love to help your work look its best. After reviewing your image file with us, you may wish to enhance the color, tonality, or other aspects of your image. In the case of significant retouching needs, we’ll provide an estimate for any additional imaging time, which is offered at an hourly rate.

“I have been looking for a professional photo lab that prints gallery archival digital prints equally as beautiful as traditional fiber printing. I have found it! This lab is second to none and is not only a lab but you can rent traditional darkroom time and studio space right in Mill Valley. I used to have to drive to San Francisco for this kind of professional photo lab and studio space. I would recommend The Image Flow to anyone seeking a true partner in the creative process of photography support.”

*Please note, our metal print panels are created in a state of the art coating facility. Small imperfections are a natural part of the coating process. We inspect every sheet and try to place any imperfections in areas of an image where they are least likely to be noticed. We cannot remake metal prints due to these imperfections since they are an inherent part of the process.
