PRINT ONLINE @ CONE EDITIONS PRESS
We offer three easy online printing services.
Upoad an image & choose between every single paper/ink/toning combo we offer. We’ll size the image to fit on an 8.5x11 sheet of paper and prit to your desired specs. This helps if you need to edit yor images before getting larger prints made. This service allows different ink/paper/toning options for every single file uploaded.
B&W Piezography and Color Prints
This is our “print-on-demand” service. First choose your sheet dimensions. Then upload your print-ready images that have been sized correctly using our extensive print-template files and instructions. For each image you get access to our WIDE array of different fine art archival (and proofing) papers as well as tons of toning and ink options.
Perfect color management and 60 years of combined experience in one lab.
We make ink.
At Cone Editions Press, we make our own ink. We’ve been making archival pigment ink for more than 20 years and we’ve printed for some amazing artists with it over the years.
This process makes Cone Editions Press really unique. We have a full grasp of the entire technological stack from particle to paper fibre to imaging, printing, and packing.
From special gloss-optimized prints (default) to enhanced matte black ink printing with our new Ultra-HD-MK carbon ink, we have you covered.
At the studio, we constantly profile every color printer and paper with 3000 patch ICCs. These “color dictionaries” keep a close match between the monitor and the paper and we are able to achieve maximum color fidelity and stable results for artists year to year and decade to decade.
Color management is ever-evolving and the expert technicians at our studio are at the leading edge of color management research and experimentation.
Good color is not just about maximum pop, it’s all in the subtleties between neutral and saturated and we are fluent in that language.
To print good color, you don’t just need amazing ink and hardware. You need the eyeballs and experience to get the job done. At Cone Editions we’ve worked with so many artists on color imaging and proofing that we have an intuitive sense of where a project needs to go.
We are all artists ourselves, and we are dedicated to working directly with an artist to achieve their goals. This collaborative aproach was pioneered at Cone Editions Press and is at the root of our identity.
For artists that need complex work done we offer custom printing. This is a white-glove service. Every file is carefully inspected and the artist can customize the work done in whatever way they want.

Send a message above or call us at 802 439 5751. If you don’t have print-ready files to upload, just let us know the details of exactly what paper and sizing you need for each print and we’ll get the conversation rolling.
After the estimate is approved by the client and all files have been delivered to CEP, we begin production. At this point, any changes or requests can be communicated by email or phone. Changes mid-stream may add cost.
If requested, proofs are made and sent for approval. After approval (or more editing), the final prints are made and packed. (Reference proofs are kept on file for future print matching, if requested.) Files are archived for free.
The final invoice is sent to the client and payment is made. After payment, perfectly packed prints are then delivered by FedEx, DHL, or USPS upon the desire of the customer. (Default is FedEx Express, Sig Required.)
FULL-DAY PRINTING @ CEP STUDIO IN VERMONT
This hands-on printing service is a full day-rate service from 9AM to 4PM. You get access to the printmaking staff at CEP and the whole studio for an entire day with all-you-can-print production. This service is very similare to renting out a sound studio if you’re a recording artist. The flat-rate price per day is $1500.00 for inkjet printing and $1700.00 for Platinum printing. If your files are ready to go, it’s possible to get a serious amount of work done at a very low cost per print.
Call us to talk about your project and it’s production needs, then schedule your master print day with sufficient time for preperation on your end and our end.
CEP staff prepares the studio and makes sure the required ink, paper, and production materials are ready for the production day. Final confirmaton of materials and production is required 1 week in advance.
Full-tilt production happens for one day. This can include drum scanning, file mastering, proof printing, exhibition printing, and/or learning how to print. Lunch is included.
