News about Pixel and Ink: Pixel and Ink has now moved to a new space on Broad Street. We are expanding our fine art printing services to include framing and printing on metal, wood, acrylic, tile, and more.
To make that happen, we’re temporarily pausing production for April. If you’ve submitted an order to us, we’re wrapping that up this week for you. Then we’ll take the next few weeks to test our new equipment, get samples prepared and train new employees. We can’t wait to show you the great things we can do with our new printing equipment!
What this means for production:
Since April is traditionally a slow month for us, we hope it won’t be too much of an inconvenience. At the same time, we want to help everyone as we continue to renovate! Here’s our promise:

  • Prints – We can still do prints for people, but it’ll be on a weekly turnaround. Feel free to send your files, and we’ll set a pickup date.
  • Film – We’re still a dropoff point for Dunwoody Photo. Feel free to email us, and we’ll set up an appointment for you to drop off or pick up film.
  • Scanning and editing – We’re pausing on these services for April. If you’d like to drop off an order, let us know! We’re happy to hold it until we reopen.
  • Art capture – We’re also wrapping up our last few art reproduction pieces this week for April. If you have an art show in May or an event coming up, let us know! We may be able to  work something out.
  • Photo restoration – We can still accept these orders in April but will extend the turnaround time to May. Let us know if you have photos you’d like to drop off for an estimate.
