Customer Questions & Answers

Do I need to crop the photos before uploading them?

Nope. During the upload process, the website will automatically crop the photos to the right aspect ratio and sizes. There is also a cropper tool you can use to make fine adjustments.

How are the prints packaged?

Larger prints are wrapped in archival quality celophane and rolled into a shipping tube. Smaller ones will be delivered unmounted and flat in a Rigi mailer for maximum protection.

What are best practices for mounting these prints?

Take the print to a local craft store and purchase a spray mount adhesive used for framing. (Just note: be careful as this could ruin the print if not done correctly). Or you can take the print to a local frame shop and have them mount the print.

You may also want to check out our Mounted Prints and Fine Art Frames products. They are both professionally mounted and framed.

I'm on a bender trying to gather and hang lots of personal pics at home. Printing always seems such hard work but I just tried out Dunedin based site @happymoosenz and am super pleased with the result. I printed 3x of this lovely pic of my sister @binkerbinkerbinker and Bro in law @Si_curtis (pre baby) in front of the glasshouse they built as part of the Whole House Reuse Project by @rekindle_nz
