Every print ordered from our website, (or by using one of our order forms), is carefully Photoshopped from the original full resolution digital file to improve the quality. Not only will we reapply the vignette (if we think it will improve your print), but we will also improve the composition, endeavour to remove unwanted, unsightly and distracting marks such as dandruff or stray tufts of fur, re-size the image specifically for the size of product ordered, digitally optimize the image, and then finally professionally print everything using our own Epson Stylus Pro 4000, or Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printer. Most importantly we only use Premium Quality Photo Papers and genuine Epson Professional Inks.
Our standard print sizes are as follows:
8″ x 6″ 9″ x 6″ 10″ x 8″ 12″ x 10″ 16″ x 12″ 20″ x 16″ 24″ x 20″ 30″ x 20″
As well as supplying prints in our ‘standard’ sizes (as listed above), we can also print to any other dimensions to meet your exact requirements. We also specialise in ‘Multi-Prints’ that contain a number of images in a wide range of design formats. Please see the ‘Multi-Print Layouts‘ folder in our Gallery for our most popular designs. Custom sizes and design are also available to order.
The same care and attention to detail that is given to our prints is also afforded to every canvas we sell. All our canvasses are professionally printed on top quality 415gsm Cotton, on an Epson Stylus Pro 9900 printer, and professionally laminated for long lasting protection. Again we only use genuine Epson Inks.
Our standard Canvas sizes are as follows:
16″ x 12″ 16″ x 16″ 20″ x 16″ 20″ x 20″ 24″ x 20″ 30″ x 20″ (Custom sizes also available)
Please also don’t be fooled by cheap canvas wraps that often fade after only a few years, and that use wedges to stretch the frame. This is an inferior method of stretching canvasses and is widely condemned throughout the industry. Our canvases are hand made in a time honoured traditional way used by artists and professional framers. Every canvas we supply is also protected (at no extra charge), with a very high quality professional laminate wrap that will not fade or discolour.
Another popular way to buy our Portraits is by purchasing digital files. With so many people using Social Media websites (such as FaceBook and Twitter), we offer low resolution versions perfectly suited to this very purpose. However, if you wish to get the image printed yourself then we also offer a high resolution digital files that are the same quality as those printed by us at events (with limited Photoshopping). If you want the highest level of quality then our prints are still your best option by far. Low resolution digital files are emailed directly to you, and full resolution files are sent on a Mini CD, both within a few days of the event.
Please note that Friends Forever Portraits retains the Copyright for all images, but grants permission for purchased digital file images to be used on-line, or for the production of prints for personal use only. Any other reproduction requires our express permission.
We can say with confidence that the quality of our products is superior to anything we have seen to date being offered by other companies who take similar style portraits to ourselves, whether in pet shops, at dog shows or at other events around the Country. Despite our products being of a much higher quality we strive to ensure that our prices remain lower than those of our competitors.
To ensure that your Prints and Canvasses have a long life, please do not ‘display’ them in direct sunlight, in areas with extreme variations of temperature, and/or with high humidity.
