HOW TO ORDER A CUSTOM SIZE PRINT

 

CUSTOM SIZE 20×12” EXAMPLE

CLEARLY COLOUR & MARK THE EXCESS AREA WE ARE GOING TO TRIM OFF.

For a 20×12 example, please order the larger 20×16 size.

Clearly colour & mark the excess area we are going to trim off as shown in the example. The price will be charged at the ordered size.

Custom sizes are available on the following products:
LARGE PRINTS / FINE ART PRINTS / STICK ON PRINTS & ALL MOUNTED PRINTS

 

If I add text or a keyline very close to the edges is there any trimming?

Yes, all machines do crop about 3-5mm into the print area, so please make sure you allow for this when adding text or a keyline to prints.

Images must be sized to the actual print size required, as failure to do so may result in unwanted cropping of image. All sizing must be in inches, so if a 7″ x 5″ is required, the image needs to be sized to 7″ x 5″ before uploading.

Do you colour correct and add sharpening to files?

No, our printers do not apply any sharpening or colour correction to files. The colour management
of images is your responsibility, so please ensure files are in sRGB profile (sRGB IEC61966-2.1) and the correct size before uploading.

To change colour settings in Adobe Photoshop, go to Edit / Colour Settings and select sRGB IEC61966-2.1 from the drop down.
