1. Just what is a Photobanner?
A Photobanner features a greatly enlarged reproduction of the subject or subjects whose photograph(s) you have sent us and your message combined into a bright, attractive design printed onto Photo-Quality paper. A ‘standard’ Photobanner is 6 feet long although they are available in longer lengths as required.

 

2. What’s included in the price of a Photobanner?
We believe in inclusive pricing (no ‘plus postage & packing’), therefore the price is inclusive of all materials, scanning, photographic improvements, design time, production and First Class postage and packing for your Photobanner. If you send a photograph to us, this is also returned by First Class post.

 

3. What’s the difference between a Photobanner and a Custombanner?
Both types of banner are produced to the same high standards. The only difference is that the Photobanner carries a photographic image and the Custombanner doesn’t.

 

4. Is 6 feet the only size available?
No, we regard 6 feet as being the ‘standard size’ but Photobanners can be produced in lengths up to 12ft.

 

5. How do I order?
Click on a thumbnail (small image) on one of the banner pages. You can then select the size of banner require and tell us your message and choice of colours and decoration in the panel providedt. You will also be able to give us any special instructions.

 

6. What if I need it urgently?
We aim to deliver your Custom or Photobanner within 7 days of receiving your order, subject to your approval of the proof that we will send you. Packing and postage by Royal Mail First Class is free, for an additional charge we offer Royal Mail Special Delivery (next day). If your order is urgent, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

 

7. Can I have more than one photograph on the Photobanner?
Yes, you can have up to 2 photographs on a Photobanner for the usual price of £39.95 for a six foot banner.

 

8. What do you do to / what happens to my photograph?
We do not harm your photograpsh in any way, we simply scan them at a high resolution. We then isolate the subject from the scanned image, either by creating a vignette around the head, neck and possibly shoulders.

We ‘improve’ the image as necessary, this could involve elimination of ‘red-eye’, adjustment of colour levels or cosmetic improvements such as the removal of spots or other blemishes (if only life was so simple!). Finaly, we enlarge the resulting image to the full depth of the banner.
Your photograps are returned to you in a hard-backed envelope by First Class post at the same time as your Photobanner is dispatched.

 

9. What is a vignette?
A vignette can be thought of as an oval image that fades into the background, so the edge of the portion of the photograph that is used will fade nicely into the Photobanner.

 

10. Is the Photobanner suitable for outdoor use?
The Photobanner is printed on Photo-Quality paper and, unless securely fastened and protected from the elements, is not recomended for outdoor use. However, we can laminate your banner. You will find details of this service on our Lamination page.

 

11. What is the actual size/width?
Photobanners are printed on Photo-quality paper that is A2 width (16½ inches/42 centimetres). They can be up to 12ft in length.

 

12. How big will my message be / how many words can I use?
Your message can be as long as you like, within reason, but bear in mind that the more text that you have, the smaller the text will be. For a simple message like ‘Happy Birthday’ the letters will be about a foot tall but it depends on the subject's name and any other words that you would want to include like ‘from all the family’. However our job is to design, fit and arrange the text in the most attractive and eye-catching way.

 


13. How will my Photobanner arrive?
Photobanners are dispatched in sturdy cardboard tubes by First Class post on the day of production.

 

14. What about Product Promotion and multiple orders?
We are always happy to discuss specific requirements and will always offer a competitive price for multiple orders. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

 

15. What do you mean by 'proof in 48 hours'?
We aim to email a proof to you within 48 hours of receiving your order for your approval. '48 hours' applies to the working week Monday to Friday. However, you may receive your proof quicker than this as we do sometimes work at the weekend. If your order is urgent, we may be able to email a proof to you the same day.

When you receive your proof, please let us know as soon as possible whether you approve it or whether you would like any changes and we will send you an amended proof. Proofs are produced by taking a screen image of your banner and emailed to you as a .jpeg file. If you cannot receive or are having trouble receiving the proof, please let us know and we will post it on a web page.

 

16. Can you do alterations to photographs used in Photobanners?
Included in the price is a degree of ‘tidying up’ of the photograph. For example, an unslightly spot on the nose or slight blemish can easily be removed. If you require more extensive alterations or repairs then we will be happy to discuss this after we have received the source material. In any event, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

 

17. What type of photograph can you use/do you need?
The quality of the final image is entirely dependant on the quality of the source image. So the best, brightest and clearest photograph will give the best results.

 

18. Can I have extra copies?
A copy of your Photobanner and the information contained therein will be kept by us, in electronic form. An extra copy can, therefore, be ordered at any time.

 

19. Does the photograph have to be of a person?
No, the photograph can be of anything you like and the message also can be anything you like - it’s up to you!
