Colour rates

 

The image size can be as large as paper size, or to a smaller specification, as long as original ratio of length to breadth is maintained. Non-standard shapes (round, square etc.) will be printed in the original shape.
A2 size prints require a high resolution image file of minimum 18mb for a good quality reproduction.

Turn-around time : five working days from receipt of payment. Allow time for postage if required.

 Prints on plain paper

The high resolution images can also be printed to plain paper as a less expensive option. An A2 size is available but the image loses definition and is not recommended. Allow five working days from receipt of payment.

Size B&W Colour
A4  $6.00  $8.00 
A3  $7.00  $9.00 
A2  $11.00  $13.00
