Can I mix and match a pack from different proof cards?


Unfortunately as the laboratory works on an automated system, it is not possible to mix packages from different proof cards. What we can recommend is our digital download! You can print your photograph at any size as many times as you would like.




Why do I have to pay postage after the return date has passed?


All orders placed before the return date (Both online and through the school) are processed together and delivered back to the school in one batch. All orders after this date are processed and posted individually thus incurring a postage and packaging charge.




I’ve lost/never received my proof card, what can I do?


Please contact the school to obtain the image name of your photograph from the CD we provided them. Once you have this number please contact our office and they will be able to send a link for you to view/order online.




What is our postal address?

How long do we keep images on file?

How do I save my digital download as a JPEG


Your JPEG image/s are embedded within the ZIP format. Simply open the ZIP link to download/unpack your JPEG images. Each image contained within the ZIP package has a copyright waiver message embedded (meta data), giving permission for personal use. Some tablets and phones are unable to save JPEG images to their photos from a ZIP format without the help of an App. Please read the instructions below on how to do this.

Visit the IOS App Store and download iZip (Free). Once downloaded go back to your email and press the (ZIP Format) link, this will open Safari and give you the option to “Open in iZip”. Press this and click “OK” to extract your images. Once extracted you can then select your image/s and press save at the bottom right of your screen.

Visit the Play Store and download WinZip (Free). Once downloaded open the app, allow access to your photos and press “Try Free”. You can then go back to your email and press the (ZIP Format) link, this will open your web browser and give you the option to “Open in WinZip”. Once open you can then select your photograph/s and save them to your device.




Why is my online ordering blank or jumbled up?


Occasionally the encryption used to protect your page becomes corrupted; this can result in the page not being displayed correctly. If this occurs please re-enter your username and password to generate a new ordering link, open the new link and refresh the page.




How do I order from multiple proof cards


Ordering from multiple proof cards is no problem. Our shopping cart works automatically by adding your packs together. Simply submit details from your first proof card, open the link from our email and add the required packs to your shopping cart. Then, any other packs from other proof cards will automatically be added to your existing shopping cart. Once happy you can then proceed to checkout. If you are still unsure please watch our video




I have only received part of my order


Large orders, orders from different schools and orders taken by different photographers can all be dispatched separately from our laboratory. Please allow a further 3 working days for the remaining parts of your order to arrive. (Gift items and canvases are dispatched separately and may take longer).
