We offer four canvas edge options to our customers.
Full Bleed Border/Edge
This option means your photo will continue around the edge of the frame, parts of the image will appear on the sides of the canvas, much like our display images featured on our website.
If your photo doesn't suit full bleed, perhaps because someone's head or an important feature is to close to the edge of the frame, it will probably be better to use a mirrored edge option. This is done using photoshop to copy and repeat the edges or your photo, these repeated edges then appear on the sides of your canvas. Doing it this way stops important features of your photo being wrapped around the edge of the frame.
Black or White Border/Edge
If you wish to have no photo printed on the edge of the canvas then you can choose either black or white as an edge option. These look really nice, giving the photo a very elegant feel, and maximises the viewable photo area on the front of the frame.
Colour correction is a process of adjusting the colours to print as you see them on your computer screen. The problem is that most computer screens do not by default display colours accurately. Computer screens and televisions have to be calibrated so that what they show is true to life and a correct representation of what will come out on the printer. Unless you are a professional photographer then most likely your screen is not displaying your photo as it should be, so we recommend that you select the "Yes" option so that we can adjust the colours to print with all the vibrancy and richness it should have. This is a free service we offer to all customers.
We use a device called ‘Colormunki" a state of the art optical device to calibrate the screen to the printers output. This ensures colour correctness and incredibly accurate skin tones. If you are a professional and already have a calibrated system then we recommend that you select the "No" option.
There are two types of paper we offer to to our customers. Both are of the same high quality and weight (260gsm). Gloss Finish paper gives you a high sheen finish to the print. Colours are well replicated with good saturation and depth. The down side is it is prone to finger print marks and reflective to light. Matte Finish paper is less reflective to light, colours also are reproduced well and not as prone to finger print marks.

There are two choices of laminate available for the Aluminium panels.
Ultragloss - This has been the only choice until recently, it gives the image a mirror like finish very comparable to the old Cibachrome prints.
Satin - The benefit of this laminate is that it gives a non-reflective finish which allows display in rooms where there is much more light. The Satin finish does give a subtle change to the colour however this is more than offset by the ability to see the detail without reflections. Compare Framing done with standard glass too that done with non-reflective glass, it is the same personal choice.
