CCC RAL Print Studio

Print Studio Volunteers

The RAL Print Studio will be staffed on Tuesdays and Saturdays, from 10 am to 1 pm from September through May (Tuesdays ONLY from June through August). The other days of the week (except Friday) will be by appointment only. Appointments can be scheduled by sending an email request to printstudio@coastalcameraclub.com. Efforts will be made to try to arrange an appointment that works for the requesting member and the monitor. The Studio will be closed on Fridays.

CCC members can print using this state of the art studio. CCC Print Studio monitors are ready to print your images using professional, exhibition quality equipment.

 CCC Print Studio monitors will:
1. Provide advice regarding best print size for your image.
2. Make minor adjustments to the image, if needed.
3. Print your images on professional quality paper.

Current paper sizes (inches) are 8.5 X 11, 11.7 X 16.5, 13 X19, and 17 X 22 (depending on the selection of paper), using all Epson Signature Worthy Professional papers.

 WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

  1. Process your images to a “print ready quality” prior to bringing them to the Print Studio - CCC monitors will only provide minor edits (e.g. to correct color, size, etc. if necessary).
  2. Format your images as follows:
    1. File format: JPEG or TIFF (no RAW images)
    2. Color profile: ADOBE RGB (1998)
    3. Print size: Longest side of image in pixels, divided by 300 = maximum longest side (length or width) of the print
  3. Store/Save image file(s) on a USB flash drive.
  4. The Print Studio is located at the RAL Henlopen Acres Campus (12 Dodds Lane, Rehoboth Beach)
  5. Bring your USB flash drive when you plan to print.
  6. Bring your CCC badge as proof of CCC membership
