About photo prints
Prints are prepared to order, carefully processed and printed by the photographer, each image proof tested before being finally printed and dispatched.
Prints are made using premium inks and paper so if carefully mounted under glass in a frame they will not fade or colour adjust in a typical lifetime.
When you add a print to a 'cart' you will be asked to make a simple choice of size and finish for a borderless print. Sometimes the image dimensions will not suit borderless printing and in that case you will be contacted with a choice of a borderless but cropped print or a print with a white border that will preserve all elements of the image in its original aspect ratio.
Matt finish has a smooth, non-glare surface. It has a lower contrast when printed but has the advantage that photos can be viewed accurately from a wide range of angles. Most photographers will prefer to present their work as art on matt paper.
Smooth Pearl is available in A4 size only and has a slight gloss with a subtle texture. It has a deeper color-saturation than matt and higher contrast. It a useful compromise between gloss and matte.
The aim is that you will receive your chosen print(s) within 5 days or less of placing an order. Sometimes, most obviously when the photographer is away from home for an extended period there will be delays but you should be kept informed and given an option to postpone or cancel your order.
