Extra options

John will check over your images and optimise them for printing, unless you would prefer to print directly from the file.

By default, a white border will be left around the print. A small additional cost is applied for trimming to the print edge.

If anything seems out of place, John will be in touch.

Not everybody knows their paper’s backwards, so here’s how it works….

  • All papers are favourites of mine.
