Bumblejax Printing & Product Buyer Guides

We have released two guides to help our customers prepare their files for printing and determine the best product and configuration for their particular photo, style preference, decor and/or budget.  We know it can be a tough decision to decide on a particular product especially if you’re new to this style of frameless photo mounting.  Hopefully, the buyer’s guide will help steer you in the right direction! Of course, we’re available via email, phone, and live chat too if you need to consult with one of our experts.

Here are the links or just click on the images below.

Bumblejax Art Gallery – Over 50 Million Images With Curated Sections
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

NOTE:  This is just the first phase of our gallery launch.  In the future, we’ll be integrating the gallery better so you can save photos to your account and order online.  For now, you’ll just send us the Photo ID of the photo you’re interested in (details below).  We’ll be featuring some independent artists in the future as well!

The Bumblejax art gallery has over 50 million images to choose from which can be a bit overwhelming so we’ve broken it out into Featured Collections and Categories and have curated some great photos in each section to help get you started.  The Featured Collections such as Famous Churches, Panoramic Skylines and Big Waves will only include curated photos, the but the broader photo categories such as Beaches, Floral and Abstract will include a tab to search on your own as well.  By default, each category displays the curated collection in each category and you can hit the Search More.. tab to begin your own search within that category.  (see example below)

When you click in the category search tab you’ll see all the photos offered.  This example shows the Floral/Botanical category search and you can see there are a few filters to help you find what you’re looking for.  The default filter is Best Sales which are sales across the network of our photos provider and not necessarily best sales here at Bumblejax.  It’s just a starting point.  You can filter these photos by Color and Orientation as well.

Another great way to locate photos in the style you prefer is to click on the photo to open up the lightbox of the larger image.   You’ll then see a list of similar photos on the right side as shown in the image below.

If you see a photo you would like to purchase simply send us the Photo ID.  We can take a look to make sure it will print at high quality for the print size that you need.  Almost all photos in the gallery will print well up to about 40-50″.  Just let us know what type of mounting you want for the photo and the size and we can get some pricing for you.  The price for the photo license is between $10-$60 and varies depending on the size of the print.

Another curated gallery at Artprintstopia.com
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

This is a much smaller curated gallery of high quality digital art, paintings and photography from independent artists. Search for images at www.artprintstopia.com and if you see something you like pass along the URL of the image.

We have far more options with sizes and product options than what is available for ordering there so it’s best to just contact us with the images you want.  Simply just send us the URL(s) of the page for that image.

Pricing really varies by artist since they set the pricing. We can typically negotiate a better deal than what is currently listed.  This is another reason to just contact us with what you need rather than ordering off the site.

If you already have your own images ready to go you use our easy online upload and configuration system to order your art!

New! Gallery Quality Art From Your Hipstamatic & Instagram iPhone Photos

It’s now possible to create gallery quality wall art from your Hipstamatic & Instagram iPhone photos here at Bumblejax.com!  We now offer a few smaller square sizes at 7×7, 12×12 and 18×18 to accommodate these iPhone apps and hopefully soon we’ll be able to offer 24×24 wall art once they upgrade their software for the new iPhone just released.  We’ve worked up a few samples here at the shop which you can see below.  They look terrific on all the materials and would be a great addition in any room.

NEW! We are now fully integrated with Instagram which means you can now directly import your photos from Instagram into our configuration screen.

Game Changing Digital Camera Lytro Technology Is Coming

lytrocamera Out of focus digital images may soon be a thing of the past thanks to game changing technology from Silicon startup Lytro.  The company has found a way to adjust the focus of a digital image after the picture has been taken.  Lytro founder and CEO Ren Ng first explained the concept in a 2006 doctoral dissertation at Stanford University and has been able to take the idea from theory to application with a release of the first consumer camera slated for later this year.

The Lytro camera will capture far more light data from many more angles than a current camera does with a special sensor called a micolens array.  Sophisticated software allows the user to use the data points to manipulate the image in a variety of ways including eliminating any blur.  One big advantage of this technology is that the action shot can be much quicker.  No more waiting for the camera to focus which often times results in the shot being lost.  The camera will also capture enough data for 3-D images which could be viewed with 3-D glasses on a TV or PC.  No word on the pricing of this camera yet which will initially be sold through online retailers such as Amazon as well as the Lytro website.  This looks like exciting technology and I can’t wait for the reviews to come in.  We may have to purchase one for the Bumblejax shop and write up our own review! 

Plexiglass Wall Art For Your Home!

PlexiPerfect! Handmade, gallery ready prints that ship ready to hang on your wall.

I don’t like to honk my own horn (ok, maybe just a little) but I think we’ve offered something rather unique here at BumbleJax. We have mastered the art of digital photo mounting. BumbleJax allows you to have your digital photo shown in a gallery ready format! Having your digital photo printed out on our high end, large format printer and then face mounted to one of our unique substrates will give you something special to hang on your wall. One of the substrates we offer is acrylic, also known as plexiglass. This is my personal favorite and is becoming a very popular format for displaying photos in galleries and museums. Choosing to have your print face mounted to acrylic will give your print a clarity and richness that just can’t be achieved with any other technique. Check out our site and let me know what you think, I would love your feedback and to answer any questions you might have.

Your fellow photo enthusiast,

Corey
