If this is your first time using my online photo ordering are some answers to common questions.
What is the turnaround time? I print Monday to Thursday. Orders are printed first come first printed. Most printing is same day. Everything depends on the workload.
Do I need to pay online? Once I get your order. I will check it over, do up an invoice and E-mail it to you. You can then pay by E-Transfer or online using a credit or debit card. Once paid I will print your order.
How do I upload my images? Upload your images by selecting the CLICK HERE TO SELECT FILES tab. Depending on the quantity, size and your internet speed it may take a while to upload – be patient.
Do I have to crop / resize my images before sending to you? NO. If you do want to crop / resize I recommend the print size at 300 dpi (ex: 4×6 @ 300dpi)
What about if I have a lot of images? Large quantities of the same finish / size. Fill in the first line only, if you require more space for file numbers use additional lines. You can also use the Special Requests / Instructions section for listing things.
What is File Name / File Number, Size of print, Quantity? This is where you tell me what the file name or number is (such as img_001, image234, Wedding 1, tomsgrad). What size of print (4×6, 5×7, 8×12, 11×16, 12×18, 24×36 or any other size that you want). PLUS how many of them do you want printed of each file (1 copy, 3 of each,, etc)
What sizes do you print? Any size from wallets to 24×48. I can print any size you request whether it is a common size like 4×6, 5×7, 8×10. Or odd sizes like 4.5×9.25. Understand that some sizes require cropping and you may loose some of the image. If the cropping you request will really effect the image I will contact you
What are your paper types / media? You can click on the i icon next to the paper type box and it will tell you. Or search here
What is the print finish? I offer a number of ways to finish your prints. Print only is what you get from other labs, it is a paper print (goes in albums or in frames with glass) . For a more durable print select print & laminate is a print with a fine leather laminate that makes it water proof (more durable then a standard print). Print, laminate & mount the print is laminated to protect then mounted on foam board (VERY durable and can be framed without glass). Print, laminate, mount and frame means the print is framed and ready to hang or gift (the print is framed and ready to hang). Mixed finishes you can specify on the order line (img098 – 11×14 one on luster and one printed laminated and mounted).
What is would you like me to adjust color & / or density? Many digital files can be improved upon by adjusting the color or density. If you like I can do that – select yes. If you want them printed as you sent them – select no
What are your prices? Click here to search my prices. Select the type of media to see the prices.
What is the picture frame? If you want me to frame the pictures you would select a picture frame. You also have to select print, laminate, mount and frame. Your image will then be professionally framed.
