How can I get my images to you?

Digital files can be sent by ftp or email, or you can post your media to us at Shieling House. Negatives, transparencies or originals may be posted at your own risk, or handed to us in person.

How should I prepare my files?

If possible images sized to 300dpi at the size you require. Save files as jpegs or tiffs (not LZW compressed) and rgb 8 bit (not cmyk or 16 bit). If you require a variety of sizes it's a great help to use separate folders named as the size you need. Our monitors are calibrated to adobe srgb, but the most reliable way to colour match to us is to have a few images printed as samples then match your monitor to the prints. Alternatively you can simply hand over your cd/memory card with the images direct from your camera and leave the rest to us!

What kind of work do you print?

All kinds of photographic work; holiday photos, one off reprints, professional photographers portfolios, students exhibition prints, no job is too small, or too big!

How can I pay?

We accept all major cards online, using paypals secure service, payment over phone, cheques, cash or account payments by BACS.

How long will it take to print my images?

Normal turn around is three working days. B+W please allow 5 days. As a small company we are able and happy to accomodate rush jobs.

What paper do you use?

All prints up to 18x12 inch (plus panoramics up to 36x12 inch) are printed on a Noritsu 32 series lab using Fuji Supreme archival glossy or lustre paper (glossy will be used unless lustre requested).
