Whay type of paper will my prints be printed on?

Your print order is handled by SSI with your item printed on a Lustre / Satin paper. We do not use gloss / high gloss due to the difficulties handling this type of paper.


Are the prints cropped?

All 20 x 30cm prints are full framed prints and no cropping will occur. 12 cm x 17cm prints are slightly cropped. As such, these prints may lose a small amount of detail from the end/s of your prints. SSI will always aim to maintain the integrity of your print. In situations where the print is tightly cropped and we must avoid any cropping, this will result in your image being be printed with narrow edging to maintain the correct image dimension. It is agreed when purchasing your 12 x 17 printed photo, that any image where the integrity of the print may be too greatly compromised by the natual crop from your 12 x 17cm print, SSI may choose to apply small edging to your print to avoid any crop loss. This decision will be made by SSI with the intention of producing the best possible result.
