Why type of paper do you suggest to print on?
My choice of paper is definitely a heavyweight white paper or card stock.
I print all of my artwork on 200-220gsm weight.
You can find these at Officeworks, eBay, or speciality paper and art stores.
Once you have saved it the fun begins!! Decide on what you will print it on & what size.

What if I don't have a printer?
You can take your art files to places like Officeworks, or Snapfish (Australia), Kmart, BigW for great printing services

Print quality.
All printers have print quality preferences. Whatever you printer model is always select the correct paper choice & choose best for quality.
If you are unsure what paper quality to select, choose photo paper or inkjet paper setting.

How should I cut prints to size? 
For sizes of artwork like 8x10" for example, or in some cases 5x7" you will need to trim to size. To trim edges scissors are perfectly fine, however if you prefer a more precise cut, a guillotine, or sharp craft knife, ruler & suitable cutting mat are perfect.

Will my files expire? 
No, they won’t. Your download links will be on your invoice.
However, I would save your files ASAP to your preferred device. If you have lost them at all just let me know with your invoice number & I can resend them to you.
Please note I do not keep all customised files.

Can I share my files with my friends? 
Please don’t share your purchased files, I ask you as a supporter of a small business to not do so. this is my lively hood and I rely on my art to support this. 
All files are for personal use only.
Commercial use is strictly prohibited.
Unlimited copies can be made for personal use only.
The artwork is not to be resold, distributed or shared.
Thank you in advance.

What frames do you suggest? 
All prints are standard sizes & you will easily find frames at Ikea, Target, Kmart, Big W, & independent framing stores.
