Dickerman Prints has been doing my custom prints for years.

Seth, Garnell and Gabriel are exceptionally accommodating and patient. No matter how difficult the print they always manage to provide the best results possible.

I would, and do, recommend the lab to anyone who needs the highest quality professional printing from great people who love and understand photography.
