IMPORTANT:

  • images will be printed 'as is'. It is the customer's responsibility to check image quality
  • a fine art printer profile is used (profile is available to download in the 'Other Info' section)
  • paper is printed from a roll therefore smaller prints may have a curve which should flatten out
  • prints are trimmed by eye so exact paper dimensions cannot be guaranteed - they could be out by a millimetre for so

Advice: If you have not printed your image(s) with us before or are not sure about the brightness/colour of the print out of your image(s) order a smaller print first.

Note: Please check your email address is correct. If you have not heard anything from us within 24 hours (unless it's the weekend) check your spam folder/send us an email.

Please advise if your prints are time critical.
