To order a photo, I need the complete photo name (i.e. "6837 Halloween on Vashon Island 2013 103113"), or at least the first 4 digits of the photo name (6837), and the event (Halloween on Vashon Island 2013).
I need the size (4x6, 5x7, 8x10) and the number of each size.
I need your return mailing address.
And I need a check (payable to John Sage) for the full amount, including postage and sales tax, mailed to:
PO Box 2541
Vashon, WA 98070
Or, I have a PayPal account; you can make a full payment including sales tax and postage to me at email@example.com
Note that you are not buying a service or product rather than supporting my work in general, so PayPal should not charge me its customary rate of 2.9% + $.30.
I now (after the fall of 2014) crop all my photos to make what I think is the strongest image, visually.
This means that the reprint you buy may not completely fill a standard photo paper (4x6, 5x7, 8x10) size. The printed image may either be letter-boxed or pillar-boxed at my discretion, but it will match the image you saw online.
Then, in many cases it may be possible for me to crop further into a photo to highlight one particular person or feature of the photo. If you wish me to do a custom crop, I'll need detailed instructions as to what you want, and then I'll need to take a look at the original photo to see just what can be done. All this would need to be done by email.
I am pleased to offer professional-quality reprints of my digital photography.
I do all my own printing in the most common standard reprint sizes (4x6, 5x7, 8x10") so I know exactly what you're getting. Your reprints aren't coming from a third-party lab somewhere, mailed to you without my ever seeing them.
I use an Epson Stylus Photo R2880 inkjet printer, Epson UltraChrome K3 ink, and the highest quality Epson Premium Glossy photo paper.
Epson's UltraChrome K3 ink is considered "archival quality", with a lightfastness estimated at over 80 years when used on Epson's photo papers.
Without exception, all the photos I show here will reproduce very well in any of the standard 4x6", 5x7" or 8x10" sizes.
I now (after the fall of 2014) crop all my photos to make what I think is the strongest image, visually. Thus a specific image may not completely fill one of the standard photo paper sizes. It will match what you saw online.
