Question Anyone know about high-quality printing services?

Hi all!

I keep seeing "motivational quotes" and whatnot on Pinterest, Etsy, etc. that are printed on archival/high-quality paper and then matted/framed. We have a wall of travel photos and I found a fabulous travel quote from Jack Kerouac that I would love to include. I found it on Etsy, but thought I might be able to conjure up something myself and not pay $30 for words printed on paper (it's not even matted/framed). But, I have no clue where to go to get it printed!

I have used both FedEx and Office Max (or Office Depot, can't remember which) for printing and I was really disappointed. They seem more for flyers or posters (thin paper) and not for something frame-worthy.

My printer is okay...I might try and just buy some great paper and DIY - but was wondering what the options are for printing something like this professionally. Should I go to an actual print house? Anyone know what I should even ask for?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Hi I see this is a pretty old post, but thought to add to it in case you're still in search for the info you seek. I'm actually in graphic design and create such wall art you speak of. This isn't a sales pitch, but I can direct you to some sites that can print out what you're looking for on the type of paper your are looking for

Let me know if you are still looking into this and I'd love to help!
