Headshot Printing: Where to go in NYC and Los Angeles

Headshot Printing

You found the perfect headshot photographer, had a terrific shoot and now you need to get them printed.

Where should you go with so many options available?

Most headshot photographers will have their “go to” printers. Sometimes that printer will give you a discount (which is always a good thing) and other times you’re at the mercy of their pricing. Usually these places are fine and I’ve always stayed with the photographers choice (at least on the 1st printing), mostly because I’m a bit lazy and didn’t want to deal with the hassle of getting the proofs and moving them elsewhere.

But when you do have a choice, where should you go?



What are the best places to go for headshot printing?

Our recommendations on where to get your headshots, postcards and other acting materials printed. And don’t forget, most of these places now have the option to print your headshots online.

FYI, I haven’t used all of these headshot printers listed. The ones I haven’t used were recommended by other actors and readers of Daily Actor. – Lance

Most of the companies listed above have an option to upload a digital copy of your headshot and then you can get either proofs, retouching or actual prints of your picture. If you’re like me (incredibly lazy) and don’t feel like driving this is a Godsend. It’s even better for people who live out of the Los Angeles/New York markets.

Like I said, there are dozens of places you can get your headshot printed but the above companies represent the ones that I know are the best; the best in quality, price and customer service.

If we’re missing a company or one of your favorites aren’t listed, please let me know!
