I just used Zazzle printing the one that is in Essencials PE4 and partners with Corel, The Quality and service was excellent. My question is I know that a lot of you use texture programs and add textures to your postings on the site. Have any of you ever printed your painting with those texture added to your artwork and what are the results. I printed my artwork without any texure added to it from a program and it looks fine.
a good question, in my case I never add texture to a full sized artwork, because I never know onto which it is going to be printed - I consider the textures merely as a simulation of what the final result might look like if printed onto canvas or art papers using giclee ink - personally I think it best to work that way because adding texture to texture can be a nightmare - I only ever add texture to the tiny compressed forum images
