Photo Paper Production & Shipping
As soon as the order for your Satin or Glossy print is submitted, the image is immediately transferred to our print server. The image is entered into the print queue, nested and sent to print! The nested images are all printed in a large print run on our roll-based HP print system.
Once all of the nested images are printed and the paper roll is filled, the run is sent to our cutting team. Each print is individually trimmed to exact size.
After trimming, prints are then sorted and grouped by order. Orders are then carefully packaged for shipping, safely rolled in tissue and secured in a cardboard shipping tube.
Packaged prints are then shipped, or safely stored if additional products in the order are still to be completed.
From start to finish, this process takes an average 1-3 business days to complete. Depending on where your image falls in the queue and the volume of orders in the system, the time frame can go up or down. All of our production times are averages. It is possible that production times will occasionally fall outside of the posted range.
