Work Print
By ordering a work print you are able to see the printing of your competition print without the end cost. These prints are watermarked with WORKPRINT across the image.

Self Service
Self Service allows the studio to control all processing including retouching and print density. No corrections or adjustments are made by ACI to your prints. These prints are not viewed under competition spotlights, upgrade to full service prints for this service. This service is a 1 day lab time.

Full Service
ACI will perform the color and density adjustments to your prints. They will be reviewed under competition spotlights to ensure proper density. You can order a full service work print which includes a color corrected CD of your image to order your final print from. This service is a 2 day lab time.

Choose from 2 paper options, F-surface and Metallic. F surface is the standard in the industry printing with the blackest blacks. Spray is not recommended on the high gloss F surface print. The competition mount is Sintra mount board. This is a plastic type mount which is black all the way through and will not warp. Sintra is much harder than the foam boards, making it much more difficult for the mounted print to get scratched or dented. This mount meets the PPA standards for competition prints.

Competition prints are not valid with any specials.

What type of paper are these printed on?

We print our competition prints on F surface glossy paper. F-Surface paper is Fuji and Metallic paper is Kodak.

What is the difference between full and self service?

Full service means we will check your print under the lights and adjust accordingly. Self-service means you’ll be checking your own print.

How do I order a custom size?

Custom sizes can be ordered by ordering the next size available. Ex. I have an image 12×22, I can order it as 12×24 & use crop or fit option to make the image fit the 12” side & put white on the long sides. They can note in the instructions for us to trim evenly to 12×22.
