ordering information / procedure

Print costs, Framing and Shipping information are listed below.

If interested in ordering, please click here to go to the online Request Form.

You may also call and request over the phone.

Completed Request Forms will then be processed to generate a quote with all costs associated. Frames, matboards, and shipping are pass-through costs determined at time of request. Shipping cost will be determined by desired shipping address, carrier, and delivery speed.

Electronically sign the PDF quote, save/print and remit back via email, or mail back a signed copy. Order's will not be started until a signed/ok'd quote is received.

You will receive a final invoice for your order which can be payed via check, cashiers check or PayPal. Cash can be accepted for local orders only.

Please allow 1-2 business days from date of submitted request for a returned quote or proof, and an additional 1-8 business days for delivery after order has been confirmed and completed. (Framed pieces may take additional time depending on frame supplier's inventory.)

print sizes and price per print

All prints are printed on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Type II photo paper.

Prints can be either Gloss or Lustre finish (except for 16x20 and 20x30 which are lustre only) Lustre is a finish between Gloss (shiny) and Matte (flat)

(A) - 4" x 6" print* $15  
  (B) - 5" x 7.5" print* $20  
  (C) - 8" x 10" print** $25  
  (D) - 8" x 12" print* $35  
  (E) - 12" x 18" print* $50  
  (F) - 16" x 20" print** $75  
  (G) - 20" x 30" print* $100  
  (H) - custom size $ - dependant on size requested  

* image aspect ratio of 3:2
** image aspect ratio of 5:4

Most images are in the image aspect ratio of 3:2 (as that is the aspect I mainly shoot in).
There are a number of images that are in the 4:3 aspect ratio (or four-thirds) and a few that are in a custom aspect ratio.

For a definition of image aspect ratio, please click here.

Prints requested from this site with a different image aspect ratio from the print size (paper aspect ratio) will by default be printed with no cropping.

Exceptions can be made, of course, if permitted. ASK...it's a 50/50 probability!

framing

$25 framing fee + cost of frame and matboard(s) desired

Frames and matboards will be purchased via Dick Blick Art Supplies* (either from online store, or local locations in Minneapolis/St. Paul area), unless otherwise requested. I prefer to use Blick Essential Wood Frames which come in three finishes: Black, Natural, and Walnut.

To browse all Essential Wood Frames click here, and for all matboards and colors click here.
(please write down the Item # for any and all styles and colors of matboard. This must be entered into the Request Form . i.e. 13007-1114)

To view preferred frame sizes with 3:2 images (which is the image aspect ratio for most images)
please click here, or download this PDF file: Preferred Frame Configurations

If there is a different frame size desired, or a different image aspect for frame, please indicate in Request Form, and I will provide a PDF proof with your quote.

Frames and matboard will be billed at cost. (MN sales tax will be added to all items)

* Cost varies between online store and the local stores. For many occasions the online price
will be cheaper, but will increase the time needed to complete the order, whereas in-store purchases will expedite the process, but will more than likely increase cost. Please indicate your preference in the Request Form.

* There will be an additional shipping cost for all items purchased from online store

shipping

Items can be picked up or delivered within the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area at no cost.

Shipping will be billed at cost and based off of shipping address, carrier, and delivery speed requested.

Items will be shipped via Fedex unless otherwise requested.

Please allow 1-2 business days from date of submitted request for a returned quote or proof, and an additional 1-8 business days for delivery after order has been confirmed and completed. (Framed pieces may take additional time depending on frame supplier's inventory.)
