Questions about the Art
Thankfully, most names and places can be accommodated within 13 letters. We chose a number that would accomodate most names and places. In order to maintain fixed and reasonable sizes for framing we had to restrict the number of letters. As the number of letters approaches 13 the size of the letters is reduced in order to maintain the quality (original aspect ratio) of the image. If you find this too restrictive we would love to hear from you in order to evolve our product offerings to customer needs.
We use a top quality supplier for printing and frameing - Adoramapix.com -. We chose a high quality Kodak lustre paper because of its quality/durability and usefulness for doing signing pieces.
In the past we printed canvas ourselves and used a quality fine art canvas with archival inks. While canvas worked very well - especially for signature pieces - it required additional steps of coating to enhance and protect the image. This adds to both time and cost that we chose to avoid at this time.
Yes they do. Numbers and stats are a key ingredient in every sport. It could be an extraordinary score in golf to remember or someone's time in a marathon. Often a number beside the name makes the Art that much more special and unique to the receiver. It could identify an achievement; the number they wear when they play or the number of their favorite athlete. Most important it gives our customers greater ability to personalize a gift. We also have a limited number of special characters ' & - # and : Often we see #1 COACH chosen for a team gift. If we are missing an important character please let us know.
Please contact us with the request and we will get back to you with either a solution or an apology if we cannot add it at this time.
We chose to start with six of the major sports while we learn more about customer preferences. If we are missing your favorite sport or activity and/or you have an idea for another background, contact us with your request. We are looking at Tennis, Lacrose and Gymnastics but could be swayed by special requests.
Yes. In fact for smaller images 10x8 we suggest you use your own frame or one of the many offered by Walmart, Target, Bed Bath, Ikea etc. The larger 20x10 frame can also be purchased at some of these locations but we are more than competitive there and our prints are mounted on foam core before they are framed.
It combines specially designed digital letter art with themed photographic backgrounds into a single high resolution image. We use Graphic Design, Photography and Digital Technology to create a unique, personalized art image that is then printed on quality photo paper to ensure excellence in our final creations. Each set of photographic letters was designed by our artist to showcase a specific sport or theme. In turn our photographer shot high resolution backgrounds to compliment each sport or theme. While the letter art is special, what is really unique is our ability to combine your choice of letters and backgrounds into a single, unique, high resolution, photographic image. The probability that someone else will choose the exact same Theme and then the exact same Background and have the exact same name in mind and then choose the exact same letter art is very small. That's unique! Last but not least we have an ongoing practice of adding, updating and changing our themes, letter art and backgrounds to help keep choices fresh and to respond to customer feedback
