Comic Number and Strip Title

One of the problems with my art is I spend way too much time fuddling with little details that no one ever really sees because they are often little more than a few pixels at web resolution. The print versions are not much better because the size of the images is so small.

I’ve done a lot of research over the past few years into higher end printing, culminating with the purchase of a HP PhotoSmart B9180 printer earlier this year. I chose the B9180 because I really liked the way it handled subtle shades of grey and fine pencil work (it actually uses three different shades of black ink). The HP Vivera inks are pigment inks rather than the dye-based inks found in most inkjet printers. When printed on quality, archival fine art paper these inks are archival and tests indicate that they will resist fading up to 200 years.

I also did a lot of research and testing of the wide variety of fine art papers available for printers like this. I swear I was actually starting to get eye strain using a 10x loupe to examine the details. :) In the end, I chose the Moab Entrada Rag Bright 190 Premium Archival Fine Art Paper as the best paper for printing my work. It has a bright surface with a low texture that I prints very find details and works really well for my art style. If you click on ‘more images,’ these are photos of an actual print that hopefully gives you some idea of the quality of the output.

Fine Art Comic Prints are printed from the original high resolution files used when producing the comic. The original files are 1200 DPI at 5” x 7.25” which gives me a final image size of roughly 8.75 x 12.25” at 750 DPI on an 11x14 sheet. Each print is labeled at the bottom with the Megatokyo title, comic number, chapter, page, comic title and original post date. They are then signed by me (in pencil) with the current date. Each print is then slipped into an archival plastic sleeve with an acid free backer board and shipped seperately in a large heavy stay-flat mailer.

Some quick guidelines for ordering Fine Art Prints of Megatokyo comics:

  • When ordering, be sure to include both the comic number (that’s the sequential number that is used to identify all Megatokyo pages) AND the comic title. This will ensure that you get the comic you wanted, not the Shirt Guy Dom strip next to it.
  • Do NOT use the number at the bottom of the comic - these are sometimes inaccurate. The easiest way to verify both the Comic # and title is to mouseover the comic in your browser:

  • Speaking of Shirt Guy Dom strips, none of those please. They are produced at very (very) low resolutions, and... Well, lets just not do that to my nice printer, ok?
  • Also, no Guest Strips or strips produced in collaboration with other artists.

I will try to catch and fix any errors there may be in the files if I can, but typos and errors in Megatokyo are par for the course.

Also please note that all comics have been adjusted to match any changes that have been made for the print version and might be slightly different than the online version.
