Pricing your Print

To estimate how much a print will cost you need to know your image's height (H) and width (W) in inches. Using those dimensions you can figure out the square footage.


Inkjet pricing example Say this image of a kitten is 20" x 26"

20" x 26" = 520

520 ÷ 144 = approx. 3.6

So this image is 3.6 square feet.

Once you have the square footage of your image, multiply that by the cost of whatever paper you choose.

i.e. this 20" x 26" picture of a kitten printed on the Ilford Pearl Paper on the 9900 will cost... 3.6 x $7.50 = $27
