The quality of your limited edition print...
is directly related to the quality of the materials you supply

TansparenciesThe greatest determinant of the success of a limited edition is the quality of the input materials used on the project. You can get better results by planning your order efficiently from the start and providing us with first-rate input materials at the outset. Artpix Studio accepts; originals, digital files or transparencies.

Originals- Original artwork smaller than 12”x 17” will be scanned directly and does not require a transparency. Larger originals need to be photographed professionally to produce a high resolution digital capture, or a transparency. This can be done by your local photographer or by using Artpix Studios’ professional photo services. Of course, having the original artwork, ensures the best possible reproduction, but this choice is not always an option and is not necessary. If you do decide to send your original art, please be aware that the customer is responsible for the shipping cost to and from Artpix Studio.

Digital Files- Please supply a clearly labeled CD containing your digital file. The image should be 300 DPI at the size you want your image to be. ( ex.16”x 20”@300 DPI). Very Important: How you re-size an image, for size and resolution, has everything to do with the quality of your final print. In some cases, it is better to let us re-size your image for you, this way we can be sure your digital file retains all of the resolution it originally had. Please contact cus. service for more information. Also, it is beneficial to supply us with a color visual, (laser copy, photo, matchprint etc.), something we can use to match color. This is not a necessity, but definitely recommended. The more information sent up front, the faster/smoother the process will go.

Transparencies- Transparencies come in a variety of sizes. Artpix Studio prefers the 4”x 5”size, but will accept all sizes from 35mm to 8”x 10”. Please be aware if you supply us with a 35mm or 2 1/4”x2 1/4”square, we do not recommend reproducing larger than a 14” print. If your image size is going to be larger than 14” and you only have a small slide, please contact customer service. Also, be sure to view your transparency on a light box at the photographers, or your digital file as a print out, to be sure you are satisfied with the color. Artpix Studio will be matching the color of your image to the transparency or print out you supply (unless other material is supplied also).



  • Borders ~ Artpix Studio will center your image on the paper or canvas of your choice with a border all around. All prints will have a border. Borders usually range from a 1" to a 3" border. Mini Prints range from 1/4” to 1.75” border. The size of the border will be determined by the size of the image ordered. Max Image size depends on media chosen. Contact customer service for information.
  • No Minimums ~ There are no minimum quantity requirements for orders. Customers can order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or any number of prints they need. This provides total flexibility and enables you to publish a variety of images. Keep in mind, having a number of different images for sale increases an artist or publisher’s chance for success.
  • Proofing ~ Artpix Studio’s standard proofing policy is to send you a 9” proof for your review prior to printing your edition. The smaller proof saves customers’ money and will show the exact color on the exact paper, that the final prints will have. The proof(s) will be sent to you within 4-10 days of receiving your order (an add’l. 2-5 days if using our professional photography -Traditional-service). If a transparency provided by the customer does not accurately reflect the original, or if a digital file is of poor quality& add’l. work must be done, extra costs may be incurred.
  • File Preperation ~ The production steps necessary to make your limited edition include: Scanning the transparency or original, implementing color refinements, cleaning any minor imperfections in the transparency/digital file, and providing you with a color proof using the same inks and paper that will be used for your full-size edition. These production steps incur a one-time charge and are not necessary when reordering additional prints.
  • Pricing ~ To determine which price category your desired print size falls into, you must add the print’s height and width. For example, if you would like your print to be 16” x 20”, this is 36 combined inches (16 + 20).

ALL images that are submitted for reproductions in the future, will be stored in their personal file. (This file will have a double back up).

Reorders will be delivered to you in 1- 2 weeks of receiving your order. You can reorder by phone, fax, mail or E-mail.
