Print Ordering - John Gill Photography

Print Ordering Information

This site is an e-commerce site.  Prints may be ordered by clicking the "Buy Photos" button and choosing available options.  To see prices and sizes, click on Buy Photos, This Photo, then Paper Prints to reveal prices and sizes.  One can "X" out of this menu at any time before making an actual purchase.  

The photo lab associated with this site is excellent and prompt.   Prints are received within one to two weeks, usually 5 to 7 business days.

For most wall decor, we recommend a minimum print size of 11" x 14" or 12"x18", with 16"x20" or 16" x 24" being better.  These sizes do not include mat and frame.  For the many commercial orders we have filled, 16"x20" and 16" x 24" prints were the most commonly chosen sizes.  Choose as you like, remembering that a tiny print on a large wall is not the best.  When purchasing, there is a choice of photo papers.  We feel that Lustre paper is best for most applications.  If the buyer is familiar with the high gloss look of metallic paper, they may choose that option.  Prints may be purchased unframed and unmounted.  We also offer prints on metal that come with a float mount that is flush with the side.  These are found under "Wall Decor" after clicking "Buy Photos".

Framing options are available for paper prints but we have a suggestion.  Since the lab for this site offers only a 2" mat, in our opinion this is fine for 8"x10" or 8"x12" sizes only.   A 2" mat is really inadequate for any size larger than that, which should have a 3" mat at minimum.  Therefore, for most print sizes we suggest ordering the print only and taking it to a local framing shop.  When there, you can choose the best mat and frame with the image right in front of you.  The framer can also offer options like a double mat.  These suggestions are based on many years of professional experience.

We trust that you will love your print as much as we love the natural world it represents.
