When compiling your order,
attention to detail and accuracy counts. If you are sending
in an order created by your client, please double check it
before submitting to us to avoid mistakes and delays.
Clients are not photographers and their errors and omissions become your problem. Nobody has much fun then!! Refer them to this page for help in writing their own orders.
|Incomplete Order Instructions:||
In the event that you
ship an order to us with order instructions partially missing we
will contact you by phone or email.
We prefer email so please include email info. We're good with telephones too.
Although we may start on your order if we can, we do not consider the order to be in our system until we have your complete order instructions. For example, if you send us 4 rolls of B&W film for developing and proof prints but you omit the print surface you want, we will contact you before moving ahead with your order.
If you take 2 days to get back to us with the answer, your order will be entered into the system when when you reply, not when we received your order. If for any reason we cannot reach you to clarify a detail, we will hold the order until you respond.
