We’re excited to announce our very first Booooooom Photo Print Swap! Over the years, we’ve had a lot of people ask if we would ever host one, and now with the help of some awesome partners, we’re thrilled to finally launch one for our members!
Our photography print swap is gonna be a little bit different than your average print swap. We’ve teamed up with Opus Art Supplies and Moab to make this a lot simpler and more fun for you. So, instead of having to print your own image, package it up and mail it out, and (hopefully) receive something in return, we are going to do it all for you for free! Moab is gonna supply all the photo paper and Opus will be printing all the images in their brand new Opus Print Space.
The Opus Print Space is a new way for artists and photographers to get high quality, colour-accurate prints of the work. We’ve had the opportunity to work with Opus over the last few years and we’re looking forward to their new space here in Vancouver. If you want beautifully detailed prints made of your work, on a variety of paper, canvas, face mount as well as sublimation printing, this is a great place to go and check out! Photographers and artists now have a few ways to access Opus Fine Art Printing services: visit any of their 7 Opus retail locations, contact their customer service team, or visit their brand new Opus Print Space. They are also offering 15% off all fine art print orders until December 31, 2020! Learn more about all their fine art printing here.
This swap is for traditional photography only. If you want to be involved, all you have to do is sign up using the form below. Submit images (up to 3) that you are willing to have printed and sent to other photographers involved in the print swap. Spots are limited and once we hit our capacity (100 spots), we will close the sign up form. Everyone involved will receive a link to a private gallery where they will be able to select 1 photo they wish to receive from another photographer in the swap. Simply pay a few bucks for shipping, and everything else is covered (Vancouver-based photographers will be able to pick up their print at the Opus Print Space).
Print Swap participants get a high quality print from Opus, printed on 8.5″ x 11″ Moab Lasal Lustre Exhibition 300 gsm paper featuring work by someone else in our community (we encourage everyone to reach out to the photographer whose print they receive and send them a little message).
Space is limited to 100 photographers for this first one, so if you’re a Booooooom member (learn more about becoming a member here) make sure you sign up before it’s too late!
