Hello. I have several pictures etched on metal plates and would like to have them printed.
The size of each picture is approximately 8"x11". I contacted several printing companies but none of them agreed to do the job. Could you recommend me a company or at least key words to search for a company. I live in Chicago area. Thank you

You might also be able to find a printmaking studio for artists (it might even be run by a group of them) - they might be a bit more willing to help, or have someone who would be willing to print it for you.

This sounds like a good idea. Or hang fliers around the campus or contact printmaking professors there to see if they have students to recommend. It would probably be cheaper than a company. It may risk the quality slightly but for most knowledgeable student printmakers a black proof off a metal plate is pretty straight-forward.
