Ordering your Life in Squares Artwork
It usually takes a minimum of three weeks for the completion of your artwork. If you have a specific date that your artwork is needed for such as a birthday, we suggest allowing four weeks. We can often work to shorter timescales depending on time of year, workload and size of collage, so please get in touch if you have a deadline for delivery.
Step 1 - Choose
Go to our Shop Online page where you will find our complete range of sizes and the finishes available. Decide how many photographs you would like in your artwork as well as the size and the finish of your Life in Squares.
Step 2 - Sort
Now it's time to get your photographs sorted! You can send us paper photographs, digital images, and drawings for your collage (anything flat and A4 or below can be scanned and included). We recommend sending a small number of extra pictures to act as 'spares' in case some of your photographs are unsuitable.
Step 3 - order and Send
You can send in paper images to our scanning department at the following address. There is no need to print out digital images to send to us, you can upload them directly from your phone or other device using our upload facility here Wetransfer link. Please get in touch for advice if you are unsure.
We recommend that you send your pictures by courier or Royal Mail Special Delivery in a strong, secure package and that you add your name and address to the outside of the package. Please include address details for the return of your photographs.
Your original images will be sent back to you once we've scanned and copied them ready for your Life in Squares.
STEP 4 - PROOF
We edit and enhance your images so they look their very best for your artwork. We then create a digital proof and send it to you by email. It's now that you will see all of your images together as one piece. You can receive up to 3 proofs included in the cost of your collage. Subsequent proofs will be charged at £25 per proof. Some examples of how images can be improved can be seen here editing and enhancing.
Once you give us the go ahead and have approved the artwork, your Life in Squares will be sent to print!
STEP 5 - DELIVERY
Delivery is estimated at 7 working days from this point but this can vary depending on time of year and availability of stock. All necessary fittings to hang your Life in Squares come with the panel.
