Frequently Asked Questions

Can I reproduce an image from my digital camera?
Yes. Many digital cameras capture images with a pixel dimension of 2000 pixels x 1500 pixels and up to (3 Mega pixel to 14 Mega pixel cameras.)

With digital reproduction, more is always better and there are limits as to how large you can print from one mega pixel size to the next. Ideally the size range would be about an 8 x 10 for a 3 Mega pixel, 16" x 20" for 4, 20" x 30" for 5, 24" x 36" for 6 so on and so forth.

In real life however, you can easily not follow this scheme, although image quality does dictate what is acceptable and not, and it is a personal choice.

Can I upload my digital files to your site?
Yes, you can upload your files to our secure FTP site.

How large should my digital files be?

Are my 35 mm slides suitable for reproduction?

I don't have my images digitally; will you scan my artwork for me?
