Chris Brady Homework for April 28

Our project is a color guide of the seasons in Central Park and will have both images and illustrations. We wanted to use a printer that offers high quality paper and good vibrant color. I have researched photo printers and found that Blurb offers the largest formats for print as well as an InDesign Template that works very well. I have looked at other printers, such as Artisan State and Mpix, but I find those companies geared more towards gift books and not professionally published pieces. Blurb also has good advanced color management to get the best screen to paper outcome. All around, I have been very happy with Blurb but it can get very pricy.
