Commercial work is all done on a quote per job. Location, difficulty of the job, and final needs of the images need to be considered before giving you a price quote. Please call for a quote. If we cannot do the job, we will refer you to someone who can!
Q...How long will it take?
A...Portraits may be viewed about 1 week after they are created. Finished work normally needs 4 to 6 weeks to return from our custom lab. As with everything else in life, if you want to pay extra, YES you can have it sooner! Please let us know how we can best serve you.
Q...How large of a portrait should I purchase?
A...Portrait designers insist that the faces on a wall portrait be no smaller than the face on a clock that could be in the same wall space. In other words, the face must be large enough to see the eyes and expression just like a clock must be large enough to see the hands and numbers! Another great way to determine proper portrait size is to measure the
available space width, divide that number in half and use that divided number as the portrait width without frame. Any larger than that will dominate the wall and any smaller will appear too tiny to be of any importance.
