How do I send my photo to you?
Please send us your image/photo using our easy to use Uploader system, which can be found on our Order page, or alternatively send them via post on cd/memory stick or in print format. If you do not have a digital copy of your photo you can post it to us along with details of any special requirements you may have, note this will attract a small fee as we will need to scan your photo into the correct digital format. Once we have received your photo we will then send you a confirmation email. Please note we can only accept posted photos which are no bigger than A3 size.
What format should the digital files be in?
When using our general uploader system your image/photo should be in the JPEG format. The uploader can take anything up to 50MB, so remember the bigger the file size the better, as this will increase the quality of your finished print.
• If you wish to send us a RAW, an uncompressed TIFF, EPS, or PSD file then please use our Upload-Extreme system which allows any image file of upto 2GB to be uploaded to us. Once we have received notification that your file has been uploaded, we will contact you to discuss your wishes in more detail.
• If you are posting a CD or memory stick to Print Shop Genie, then again the bigger the file, the better. Note; we will ensure all CD’s and memory sticks are sent back to you along with your order.
• If you are scanning your own photos, please scan them at a minimum of 150 dpi (dots per inch). Remember the larger the print wanted the more dpi is needed, for example if you require a canvas size more than 30 x 20 inches you would ideally scan the photo at 1200 dpi for the ultimate result. Always make sure scanner and photo is clean, and always scan in colour even if you want a black & white print.
• We will also be happy to scan your photos for you for a small fee, just post it to us and we will do the rest. All we ask is that the photo you post to us in no larger than A3 in size. We will of course send back your photo to you along with your order.
• Please note that we cannot accept smaller digital photos taken by mobile phones/cameras with less than 3.5 mega pixels. Unfortunately the quality provided by these devices do not transfer very well to enlarged canvas prints.
Do you supply any other sizes than those shown?
The sizes we show are those most requested. However, we do offer a bespoke made to measure service should you not see the size you require. For rolled only prints (not framed), we can print up to 112cm (44″) wide by pretty much any length. Just let us know by email what size you would like and we will advise you of the price.
”How long will it take for my canvas to arrive?

Please allow 7-10 working days for delivery after full payment is received.

Will the colours I see on my own PC monitor be the same as the finished printed canvas?
We cannot guarantee this as individual monitor settings do vary. Our computers, monitors and printers are all professionally calibrated to ensure we give the best colour accuracy. To provide this excellent service we use various colour profiles that match the print media you have requested. If you know how to use & install colour profiles in your editing software, we would be more than happy to send you a copy of our profiles. Please note that the use of colour profiles can be complex, please do not embed the profile into your photo, its for you to view only so you can get an idea of what the finished product will look like.
