What becomes of my data?

We only store your address in order to process your order and we do not pass it on to third parties. We retain your image files in an internal archive to facilitate reorders. This archive is not accessible to third parties and is protected against outside access. After two years, we will delete your files permanently from our systems.

We will convert your file into a suitable format free of charge so you can order your favourite photo.

When uploading your photos, the maximum file size must not exceed 50 MB. For transferring larger amounts of data we can provide you with a protected FTP access on request.

Is my order insured during transport?

Each article is insured during transport for up to €500 per packaged unit. This means that we will replace any products damaged in transit without any ifs and buts.

Generally no special colour profile is needed. However, processing files with the file format Adobe RGB or sRGB yields especially high colour fidelity.

Questions about canvas photo

Can I order my canvas print in black and white?

Yes - you can order your canvas print in black and white. Simply upload the picture as a black and white file.

Can I also order collages?

Of course we can also print collages on canvas. You need to deliver the collage as a printable file and then you can easily order your finished collage using the ordering process.

Do you also produce special formats?

On request we can produce any size for you. The size, however, must be in multiples of ten centimetres. For example, a 20 cm x 150 cm format is possible - 67 x 83 cm, however, is not. We do not offer products that are smaller than 20 x 30 cm.

Are the canvas prints waterproof?

The latest printing technology allows for a water-repellent printing of canvas photos. Should liquid get onto the canvas photo, you can remove it carefully with a damp cloth leaving no marks.

Will the resolution of my images be adequate?

With a resolution of two megapixels, good quality canvas photos can be produced in the sizes 80 x 60 cm and 100 x 75 cm. If you want a larger format, your resolution should not be less than four megapixels.

How strong is the frame?

The frame is 2 cm in depth. If you want a stronger frame, you can purchase a wooden frame with a strength of 4 cm during the checkout process.

Is it possible to order canvas prints without the frame?

No, this isn’t possible.

How much of my motif is visible on the edge of the frame?

In the production of your canvas prints the edge accounts for 3 cm of the motif all-round. Turning the border of the canvas around the frame lends your canvas photos a three-dimensional impression. Please note the trim of 3 cm in selecting your image motif so to avoid cropping people’s heads, for example.
