Buying a Photograph - A Guide

 

Who Prints them and How?

The first answer is the easy bit: I PRINT THEM. I do all the work, not one part of the process is outsourced and no one else is involved. I press the shutter release, print them and if they are mounted and framed, I do that as well. I even wrap the photographs and take your order to the local Post Office.

 

I like to be in charge of the whole process because only I know how one of my photographs should look and be presented.

 

All photographs are printed on a wide format Epson printer using archival ink and the printing process is colour calibrated to ensure what I see, is what is printed in term of shadows, mid-tones, highlights and overall colour balance.

 

The Photograph

All photographs are Gloss finish and printed on a choice of 2 types of paper:

Heavyweight Gloss (Acid free - Archival paper) 350gsm = Thick card-like paper with a high gloss finish, designed for exhibition printing and longevity.

Standard Gloss 260gsm = Standard photograph thickness paper (that like the above) can also be mounted, framed and hung on the living room wall; as opposed to the humidity and temperature controlled gallery of a famous museum!

 

Sizes

There are 3 sizes (Although some Images are not available as A3 photographs.)

A5: 14.8 x 21cm = 5.8 x 8.3    inches

A4: 21 x 29.7cm = 8.3 x 11.7  inches

A3: 29.7x420cm = 11.7 x 16.5 inches

All prints will have a very small white border and all photographs are hand cut to size.

 

Postage and Packing

I've tried to keep the costs low and for ordering a single print, I make very little to nothing extra on the postal charge. If you order A3 or multiple prints, the cost of the added weight and packing is at no extra cost.

Although not convenient for everyone, I recommend (UK First Class signed for) as it adds a bit of added security for you the customer as well as me, as the order is insured.
