If you need something other than this please contact us.   A wide range of other sizes are possible

Fees and Prices

We charge a set fee for applying a style to your photograph regardless of the size it will be printed. Some styles are free others take much more work so we charge a little more. For more complex styles their is a small supplement for portraits that involve more than one person (£10.00 per head).

Other than that all you have to pay is for the size of the print you want. Paper prints are usually cheaper and all delivery on mainland UK is free.

Our Materials

We use a 340 gm Poly-Cotton canvas which we get great results with and is very durable. Our stretchers are from a sustainable source and made from laminated pine so they wont warp or distort.

We have three papers we stock but for most painterly styles we would recommend the Somerset enhanced. More photographic styles often look better on the Fibre Gloss which simulates darkroom paper

Need more Information

What kind of photographs do I need
All sorts of pictures can create a modern portrait or artwork. Sharp photos of people with plenty of detail, particularly in faces are best for portraits.  Action shots, landscapes and photos of prized objects or places can also work well.

Taking photographs to use
Photographs that are sharp with  plenty of detail and contrast work best. In terms of size and resolution the bigger the better as this gives us more pixels to work with

Facebook pictures?
Yes if they are yours or you have the owner's permission to reproduce them.

Delivery
Our canvas prints are triple wrapped for added protection and are fully trackable Paper print are wrapped in cellophane and placed in large cardboard tubes to pretect them in transit. Delivery is free for mainland UK . Charges do apply for delivery in the EU and beyond

What size print can I have
Its how many pixels your photo has that counts. The more pixels the better. As a rough guide for every 1000 pixels equals 10 inches, or 25 cm. If in doubt upload your photograph and we can tell you how big it will print.

How do I tell how big my photo is
Most image editing software will tell you the size of your picture in pixels. If you point at a picture file in a picture folder in windows a pop up box appears which includes the dimensions.  If in doubt please use our upload facility to send us your digital file and we  will check it for free and let you know how many pixels your picture contains.

What if I only have a print ?
No problem you can if you scan it yourself if have access to a scanner. Alternatively you can send us the original by registered post to the address on the footer of the website and we will scan it to create a digital master and send you back the original with your print

Style fees and Prices
We charge a set fee for applying a style to a photo.  Some styles are free others take more work so we charge a little more. For more complex portrait styles we also charge £10.00 per extra person. Other than that you just pay is for the size of the print you want. Delivery on mainland UK is free.
