The suspense is killing me! How long do I have to wait to see my child's proofs?
1-3 weeks, depending on the size of your school. You'll receive a digital link as soon as they're ready!
What print packages are available?
· Package A: One 8x10, two 5x7s, and eight wallets
· Package B: Four 5x7s, eight wallets
· Package C: Two 8x10s, eight wallets
All above packages cost $45. A la carte prints are also available, including everything from wallets to large 16x20" prints.
I love these so much, I want one huge on my wall. Can you help?
YES! And there will be examples of each of these in the front lobby area of school this week! The only hard part is choosing your presentation.
Option one: Glossy, sleek, modern metal prints are incredibly striking and show off every last beautiful detail in your child's gorgeous face. They come float mounted (so they appear to "float" about an inch off your wall) and ready-to-hang with a simple nail or two. My printing company is the best in the business, too.
· 8x12" Fine art mounted metal print - $85
· 11x14" Fine art mounted metal print - $110
· 16x20" Fine art mounted metal print - $165
· 20x30" Fine art mounted metal print - $275
Option two: Printed on the finest cotton handmade paper and then finished with a hand-torn edge, deckled fine art prints are absolutely one of a kind. These prints come mounted, "floated," and set within a mat for you, so you can skip the trip to Michael's and just pop your print into a frame.
· 5x7 deckled print in an 8x10 mat - $65
· 7x10 deckled print in an 11x14 mat - $95
· 12x18 deckled print in a 16x24 mat - $175
· 16x24 deckled print in a 22x30 mat - $305
If you have something else in mind, let's talk. I can do all kinds of cool wall art and other displays, including everything from greeting cards to canvases.
I can't decide between two of my child's photos. Can I split a package between two images?
Nope, sorry -- the printing lab sets up the packages this way to keep costs low for you, and I am not able to split a package between two photos. But it's a-okay to buy one package with one photo and another with a different one, or simply tack on some individual prints of any image you choose.
What about digitals?
Sure thing! Click on the "digital media" tab within the "buy" module to access these -- they are available on the following schedule:
· One FULL-resolution file - $50. These are giant, beautiful files and can be used for garden-variety prints as well as large wall art, grandma's calendar, coffee mugs, mousepads, whatever.
· All FULL-resolution files - $120. This includes color and B/W versions of all files in the gallery.
Those watermarks. They won't be on my prints and digitals, right?
Absolutely not. The images you purchase will be nice and clean!
Is there an advantage to buying the prints if I can just buy a full-resolution file and print to my heart's content?
Well, yes and no. If you're a professional with an account at a pro print lab, by all means -- print yourself. But I can virtually guarantee that printing your child's portrait at Walgreens, Target, or similar lab will yield disappointing results. I work with the top professional print lab in the country, which uses state-of-the-art printing technology, the best dyes and processes, and the highest-end paper to ensure gorgeous print quality that will look as good in 25 years as it does today.
That said, there are a couple of labs in Austin that do decent -- if not cheap -- work for the public, and I'm happy to point you in their direction if you choose to go digital -- just don't expect a bargain!
I have my child's gallery. How do I actually order photos?
Here we go. You can either hover over any photo in the full gallery and click the shopping cart icon that pops up, or click into the photo for a large version, and select the "buy photo" button in the top right. From there, you will get the full menu, including three tabs - "prints," "digital media," and "metals." Special note, the "all digital files" options are available from any photo in your gallery.
You'll receive prints within three week of ordering, but often much sooner!
I have more questions. So many more questions. How do I reach you?
