Do you offer Print-On-Demand and ship to my customer?2018-10-15T16:29:35-07:00

We print and ship directly to artists who are ordering at a wholesale level, and they distribute the prints to their customers.

At this time we don’t offer a print on demand and fulfillment service.

Do you ship internationally?2018-10-15T16:55:51-07:00

Unfortunately at this time we only ship to customers within Canada as we have found the charges involved in shipping and duty fees to send to the USA and beyond to be cost prohibitive.

How much is shipping?2018-10-16T15:49:19-07:00

We ship orders by Canada Post Expedited mail, with insurance and tracking.

Cost is based on the weight and size of your order, along with your location in Canada; in accordance to Canada Post’s pricing.

For clients ordering large volumes we compare costs with sending by courier, and use the most cost efficient and timely service.

What should I do if my parcel is damaged in transit?2018-10-16T15:26:03-07:00

We take great care to package your order safely and securely. It’s extremely rare for items to be damaged in transit, however if there’s a problem with your delivery please take photographs of the outside of the package and the damaged items and email the pictures in to us. Include a list of the items damaged and we will re-print and send out to you as quickly as possible.

All orders are shipped by Canada Post Expedited mail with insurance and tracking for your peace of mind.

I took a photo with my cellphone, can I make a print from this?2018-10-16T13:09:08-07:00

Generally speaking self shot images are typically only suitable for art cards, this is because the camera sensor is small and doesn’t capture enough detail for the image to be printed any larger.

However, if your photo is good quality and the lighting is even we may be able to print up to a size of 11’x14″ – we can look at your image file and advise you first.

*We have a top of the range camera and a professional lighting system in our studio, enabling us to take crystal clear evenly lit photo’s of your work for print reproduction.

How much do prints and art cards cost?2018-10-16T14:54:41-07:00

All of our stock comes from sustainable sources and is Forestry Stewardship Certified, see our ‘Environment’ page.

Our paper and card stock is not only higher quality than recycled material, but also more Earth friendly.

You can find out more about our PRESS PRINT and GICLÉE PAPERS in our artists handbook.

Can I get a sample of my print before ordering?2020-07-24T09:29:20-07:00

We always show our clients a print proof before continuing with producing their order. If you are located outside of Victoria we can mail the proof out to you, if needed adjustments can be made for a small fee.

Set-up and proofing of new image files starts at $15 for digital press prints and art cards. Giclée proofs start at $20 (for print ready digitally created art / photo test strip) and $35 for images of original paintings.

Please note, the appearance of colours can vary widely when viewing on a screen compared to in print; and the accuracy of colour matching is dependent on the quality of the image file and the lighting / camera used.

*If critical colour matching is required, we recommend photographing or scanning your original art work for you for best results!

What format should my files be for printing?2020-07-24T09:29:39-07:00

It’s important we use the best quality image files possible to print from, as the finished print can only be as good as the image we are given!
If you are scanning or photographing your art piece, we have some tips to help you achieve good results in our Artists’ Handbook.

Your image files should be in .tiff, .PSD (Photoshop) or .jpg format at 300 – 400 dpi at 100% size, in Adobe RGB colour space.
Digital layouts (print ready) should be provided as InDesign or as high quality .PDF files (with bleed if applicable).

If your image files don’t fit within these parameters you can still share them with us, we can advise you if they will work or not and offer further advice
Do your minimum order amounts and price break quantities count for mixed images?2020-07-24T09:30:17-07:00

We take great care when producing art cards and prints, making sure the colours consistently match the proofs which we keep on file for every single order we print.

Due to the high level of attention and time required to make adjustments to the printing press for colour matching, we have minimum order amounts and price breaks based on orders per image.

Therefore minimum order amounts cannot contain mixed images.

This is because the same amount of work is involved for setting the files up for print and colour matching, no matter if we are printing 50 cards or 5000 cards.

We guarantee repeat print orders will always match the print proof, which is part of our set-up procedure for new orders. Our clients are invited to come and view the proofs at our studio in Victoria, or have them mailed.

How long will it take for my order to be printed?2020-07-24T09:31:24-07:00

Re-orders of prints can typically be ready for collection or shipping within 2 to 4 business days.

New print files require additional time for set-up and proofing, usually an extra 2 business days for prints, up to 4 business days for art card designs and layouts.

Prints on canvas can take 7 to 10 business days to complete due to time required for varnishing and stretching.

Please let us know if you have a deadline to meet and we will advise you of how long your specific order will take!

*Please allow time for your proofs to be mailed to you by Canada Post for approval before we can print your order.
