If I recall correctly, A3 approx $4-$6, A2 approx $8-$12. Options of matt/gloss lami, mounting etc. (Disclaimer: Prices are guesstimates only, been awhile since I last went).

    I did mine in ubi. Super fast. But definitely not for fine art or archival.

    for whatever reason, please don't use those printing services mainly for exhibition purposes on your portrait or wedding customers photos, those printing won't last long, it is fine to use for one time short term usage.
    it is very awful to see portrait fading away, unless you think your customers won't come back to look for you.

    There will be 2 scenarios, one, clients come back angry or they don't come back but tell everyone how bad the quality is... Either way, you are in your losing end.
