Printing

Do you do print-only?

Yes. Our primary service is offering a print and frame package but in support of that we offer a print-only service. We do not manage any print-only stores. All prints will have a 10-20mm border and are shipped in a tube.

*Or flat packed Unliked framed prints, shipping of prints alone will incur a $15 delivery fee.

What are your print-only sizes?

  • SMALL 300 x 200mm $10
    300 x 300mm $15
  • MEDIUM 400 x 600mm $39

Do you print on other paper stocks?

On request, for edition runs or higher volume orders only.
Image specifications

We print files as RGB and use the Adobe 1998 RGB colour profile. We print from .jpeg .psd or .tif files. You don’t need to resize your files, it is best to upload the full resolution file in its native pixel resolution. We will re-size to the print size, but never alter the image or pixel dimensions.

Images should be high resolution and at minimum: 

  • Small size 1000x1500px
  • Medium size 1800x2700px
  • Large size 2667x4000px
  • XLarge size 3000x4500px

 

Our website uploader accepts jpegs and pngs, but you can submit a tiff file via email to orders@formatframing.com.au.

Payment and orders

Printing and framing costs

Prices are inclusive of all logistics, printing, framing and custom packaging requirements. We provide free express shipping for all orders.

  • SMALL $99
  • MEDIUM $210
  • LARGE $310
  • XLARGE $600

 

Do you offer an artist discount or wholesale?

As artists make up the majority of our customers we don’t offer further discounts. 

To build each frame individually is labour intensive, so unfortunately we don’t benefit from economies of scale on larger orders.

How does payment work?

When an order is placed through your store, we are notified and send you an invoice within 24 business hours. Once payment is received, we will commence printing.

You can elect to store your details, so this process is even more efficient.

We never include invoices in our shipments. These are emailed directly to you.

Do you offer insurance? All pieces are fully insured for damage. Though rare, from time to time it does happen. Please notify us within 2 days of receiving your package so that we can submit a claim to the courier company. Include photos of the damage to the frame and photos of the packaging.
Do you have a minimum order quantity? No.

 

 

 

Online stores
Any resources for creating an online store?

We suggest looking into Shopify or Squarespace if you are new to eCommerce.

How much should I charge for my work?

How each artist values their work is unique and circumstantial. We suggest researching similar artists and companies to determine market value.

File naming

File names in Dropbox should be identical to the product names on your store.

I am on Shopify / Squarespace / Magento / WooCommerce / Other… can we work together?

We can automatically integrate with most e commerce platforms

By adding  orders@formatframing.com.au  to the order confirmation notifications. Alternatively you can upload each new order via our Online Print + Frame function.
