The Carina Nebula - Black and White

Printing and Framing

Printing

For best results, we strongly recommend that this black-and-white wall mural be printed at a photolab or photo store with expertise in black-and-white prints. Printing a black-and-white print with a color printer may result in a poor quality print. We also recommend that the lab use true black-and-white photographic paper for the highest quality print. Make sure the photo service you choose has the technical ability to produce the quality of print that you desire. One 20"x30" panel will average $30. We suggest testing your chosen photo service by ordering some smaller prints first.

Framing

These images have been designed for narrow frames without mats. We recommend hanging the images 1/2" to 1" away from one another.
