The order process
Online orders take around five minutes for a single photo. However, if you’re uploading a number of exhibition prints you can apply the same paper and framing options to all. The website is clearly laid out with drop-down menus and tabs for print, framing and mounting. As each option is added the image summary and price is updated. If you’re unsure of any parts of the process there are a number of how-to videos on the website.
Digital C-Type prints are based on traditional colour printing and image quality is excellent. Both our prints were perfectly sharp, with no colour casts or image break-up. We had our prints made on two different C-Type papers, but there were also 11 C-Type and Giclée papers to choose from.
The bespoke frames are both finished to a high standard, with clean, solid corners and well-mounted photos within – the telling areas when it comes to framing. The backs of the frames are sealed to stop dust entering, and both feature a D-ring and cord fixture.
The online ordering process can’t be faulted, although frame options when ordering from the web are limited to six. However, simply put ‘Hold framing’ in the comment box of your order and they’ll contact you to discuss specific requirements. The main drawback of this service was the difficulty of viewing frames during the order process to check fine detail. The tutorial videos were very helpful, along with the sample paper pack you can order. Overall we were very happy with the high quality of printing, framing and overall service.
