Yes, we do! Shipping to many
countries can be automatically calculated when you enter your shipping address
at the checkout stage; but if you have any questions, please contact us and we
can ensure you get your portrait delivery.
It takes on average 6-8 weeks for your order to be delivered, if you are ordering specialty products such as canvases of framed portraits it may take longer and will be shipping by parcel mail. Once the order is handed off to the courier you will get an email with the estimated delivery date and tracking information.
Check out our Rush
option in the store area.
Paying this extra fee will cut the delivery time significantly but may be
affected by the contents of your order.
Yes, they will. On all our printed
photo products, retouching or "touch ups" are already included in the
price. This means that your photo will be examined by our artist and issues
like skin blemishes, shine, wrinkles and "tired eyes" will be touched
up, so you look your very best. This process also includes careful colour
balancing and a double-check to make sure your portraits are centered and
printed just right. You can learn more on our
Retouching answers page.
If you have special requests for our retouching artists, there is an area in the checkout window to add notes to your order. You could mention things you do NOT want edited, or small adjustments that you'd like to ensure are made.
For those times when you want
something extra, take a look at our
Enhanced Retouching option. For a small extra fee, we can work a lot
of magic with Photoshop.
Rest assured; we never delete your photos! While our online galleries do expire after a few months, our photo archive is permanent. Your portraits are backed up carefully and photos taken years ago can still be retrieved. If your online gallery has expired but you'd like to see them again, please just contact us and we will do our best to help!
