If your file is not large enough for print, you may be interested in our Scanning Services.

Please Note: We do not make any changes, edits, optimizations, fixes, cropping, or retouching to client files without very clear instructions and a brief discussion. We don’t make subjective decisions on what looks good for your file, as our opinions may not match yours. If you have questions about your file or need assistance with editing, please notify us in advance of placing your order.

STEP 05. Upload Print Files

 

After you click “Submit” on the Order Form, you will be prompted to upload your files.

Please make sure your files are formatted and named properly.

STEP 06. Pay for Your Order

 

We’ll review your order details and send you an invoice for payment. You’ll be able to pay online using any major credit card or debit card.

If you would like to pay by business check, please contact us prior to mailing a check. You are also welcome to pay in person at our studio.

Production starts once an order is paid for. If you do not receive your invoice within 48 hours, please contact us to let us know. If you are on a tight deadline, feel free to contact us as soon as you have placed your order and received the order confirmation.

STEP 07. Production & Test Prints

 

We’ll review your files and let you know if there are any issues with the sizing. If you have concerns about your file/s, please let us know in advance. 

Any unforeseen file issues may delay your order, so please make sure your files are formatted and ready. Test prints ( if applicable ) will need to be reviewed and approved prior to any final prints being produced. Additional rounds of test prints, if desired or required, will extend the overall production timeline for your job.

We will notify you once your order is completed, but feel free to check in via email or text.

STEP 08. When Order is Complete:

 

When your order is complete, we will contact you either by email or text.

Completed orders will be prepared based on how the order was initially submitted, so if you have any changes to how you need the order packed, please let us know well in advance to prevent any delays or additional packing charges.

Will Call // Pick Up: Once we notify you, you will need to schedule a pick up time prior to arriving.
