Frequently Asked Questions
*DIGITAL PRINTABLE DESIGNS*
♥ WHERE DO I PRINT THIS?
*Large-format (like signs) can be printed at Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Kinkos, Walgreens, and local print shops. Sizes, availability, and quality varies so I recommend calling them before bringing your file in on a USB flash drive or CD and/or asking to samples of other posters they've printed.
*Smaller designs can be brought to Staples/ Kinkos/ Office Depot, or a local print shop. I highly recommend asking them to print a sample proof of the design for you before having a large quantity of items printed so you can be sure you like the final product.
*8x10 and smaller designs can be printed at home.

A lot of time and energy goes into each and every design I work on. Prices are firm, but I may offer a discount for large orders depending on the details of the project. I do not match the prices of other shops :)
♥ WILL THE COLORS LOOK THE SAME WHEN PRINTED?
Due to variations in computer settings, the colors displayed on your computer monitor often differ from the colors of the printed version.
There is no guarantee that the colors on your screen will be a perfect match with the printed colors. But I’ll do my best to match your color with a Color Palette.
