Commission A Collage!
(312)226-3745
Contact via Phone, Email or Both whichever you prefer.  Each commission is unique.  To best reflect your ideas and budget I need to understand your project.

Sunset Textured Fine Art Paper coated with Timeless Matte Varnish.  Premium quality artist paper and top of the line varnish allows your print to display beautifully without the need for glass.  If you prefer to hang without glass, you can mount it directly to a standard frame back using double sided tape or photo mount spray.  Shipped flat, ready to frame.

Lyve Premium Canvas coated with Timeless Matte Varnish to provide the highest quality protective giclee finish available.  Printed with a two inch blank canvas border, ready for your local framer to stretch and frame.  Shipped rolled in a tube.

Collage Size depends on the number of photos you have and their quality, as well as the wall space you are looking to fill.
Suggested MAXIMUM Photos/Size Guidelines:
(to prevent clutter effect, only suggestions)
up to 10 photos     11x14*
up to 20 photos   16x20*
up to 30 photos   18x24*
up to 40 photos  22x28*

up to 50 photos  24x30*

up to 60 photos  24x36*

up to 70 photos  30x40
   
up to 80 photos  36x48   
*Standard ready-made frame sizes.
I can print custom sizes too.
If your photo quality (file size) is too low to fill your desired  size, I'll let you know.

 
Additional Prints, priced separately. 
Each commission includes one print as well as a 300 dpi CD digital file of collage.

Number of Photos (entered in this form) should be the number of photos you want me to use in your final piece.  You can send me as many extra photos as you like, giving me choices to choose from.  You can enter a range if the exact (final) price isn't a concern or if you aren't sure now.  I'll quote you a price at both ends.

Photo Type can be digital, scanned or printed photographs.  I accept jpeg, tiff, pdf, psd, gif and png formats.  Collages can also include fun filler stuff like certificates, medals, invitations, newspaper clippings, ticket stubs... anything that helps to tell your story!  Please no copyrighted photos.

Photo Quality (file size) effects how large I can scale each of your photos.  High quality and in focus photos produce the best collages.  The MINIMUM photo file size (resolution) should be 300 dpi and 1024x768 resolution.  Bigger IS better!  Older scanned photographs usually require extra photoshop (clean up) time.  If you are using original photographs and/or fun filler stuff you can scan them yourself, take them somewhere like Kinko's and have them scan (high res jpegs) or mail to me to scan. I'll return them unharmed.

Sending Photos is easy, several options are available.  The most common method is for you to Email me your files.  If you have a lot of photos, or would just rather, I have an on line file folder you can upload to.  I'll give you the web address & password when we get there.  Another option is for you to mail me your digital files (on cd) or your printed photos.  I will return your unharmed photos (or fun filler stuff) with your collage.  

Collage Text  needs to be written exactly how you want it to read.  If you have any preferences where the text should be placed (ex:  lower edge centered) and/or what font should be used please let me know.  You can also give direction like "fun font" or "formal, traditional font" or "distressed font" or "really big text".

Design Proofing
will continue until you are completely thrilled with your Commissioned Collage.  I will Email you a watermarked copy of your art and will not print until you give me the thumbs up.  Once approved your collage will be printed, varnished and shipped within 3-4 days.  


300 dpi Digital File on CD Included with every Commission!
