Proofing Before Printing
We suggest ordering a proof print prior to placing your final order, especially if you are ordering large prints or prints in quantity. A proof is a canvas print designed to demonstrate both the quality of the file and the accuracy of our printing based on following your directions or matching a guide or original. Proof Prints are available in both 8×10 and 16×20 sizes. Proof prints will be printed “full-frame”, which means that all of your image will show. The “opposite” of full frame is “cropped”, which means that some of the image area will be cut off to match the proportions of the ordered image.
We keep a copy on file of all proof prints sent to our customers. You do not need to return your proof. Once you receive your proof, simply call us to discuss how to proceed. If changes are desired, we can easily discuss those changes over the phone since we both have a copy of the proof.

Making Adjustments to Your Image
You know how sometimes capturing that unique photo is really a challenge, or how some paintings are more difficult to complete than others? Well, for us, some images are just plain harder to print than others. When we get these images, it frequently requires extra time for us and sometimes extra cost for you.
And, we occasionally get requests to digitally repair a painting or to remove a distracting element from a photograph. Anything is possible, but it comes with a cost.
When we encounter a difficult image or a request to make alterations, it is likely that it will require extra time for us, and cost for you. When this happens, we will provide you with a cost estimate before proceeding with your order. And by the way, you really should get an proof print from the adjusted file prior to ordering your final prints.
Image Adjustment fee: $80/hr ($20 minimum)
