More New Print Sizes
We continually make great strides to fulfill customer requests.  This month, we have added a few new things to PROS.

12x18 prints – This aspect ratio allows full frame prints to be made from files from most digital cameras.  This print size is ideal for sports photographers!

Gallery Wraps – We’ve added 8x8, 12x12 and 16x16 print sizes to both our 1 and 1.5 inch Gallery Wrap line.  Keep in mind that our Second Quarter Promotion features Gallery Wraps with a 25 percent discount.  Take advantage of these new sizes and our promotion today!

Monitor Calibration with Ease
As professional photographers, you want to make sure the images you are seeing on your monitor are as accurate as possible.  Having a calibrated monitor is especially critical when performing image enhancements or previewing images with your clients.

Trust what you’re seeing, don’t second guess yourself.  Pounds Labs is now stocking the affordable Eye-One Display 2 from X-Rite as our suggested tool for calibrating and profiling your monitor.  With the Eye-One Display 2, profiling your LCD, CRT or even notebook displays has never been easier!  Contact a friendly customer service representative today to order or find out more about the Eye-One Display 2.  Keep checking our Web site within the next week as we will begin to accept orders online.
