PRINT WORKSHOP: Presented by Rikk Flohr & Laurie Hernandez (,

What will be covered:

  • Test printing, adjustments, and final printouts
  •  Selecting backing materials
  • Matte selection considerations
  • Matte cutting
  • Final Print Assembly

Printing will be done on user-supplied images brought on flash drives. We will provide specifications prior to the class to ensure everyone brings a suitable file for a quality output. Printing will be done to an approximate size of 8×10 inches with a finished matted piece being approximately 11×14 inches. Each attendee will be allowed to bring home their finished work – ready to submit for a salon.

Adobe has agreed to help sponsor this session as we will be featuring Lightroom and will contribute a Lightroom 5 copy to award.

Morning refreshments will be provided as part of the class.

  • A flash drive containing the image that you want to print.
