Printing Guidelines

File requirements & information

Step 1:  Prepare your image

  • TIFF and PSD is recommended.  JPEGs accepted.
  • Image must be scaled to the print size and 300 dpi.
  • Canvas prints with edge printing require special image sizes (details below)
  • Need artwork documentation? I charge an hourly rate + equipment rental fee. Please email for details: sales @ sketchcalgary.ca
  • Need scanning? $30 per image, includes Photoshop CS Post-processing.

Step 2:  Give us your image

  • Share your files with sales@sketchcalgary.ca using Google Drive, DropBox, or your favorite Cloud-based storage system. I will accept sanitized USB keys but am limiting in-person visits due to Covid-19.

Step 3:  Order a test strip for each image ($5 each – optional)

  • I will print a 5 inch wide strip of your image.
  • This allows you to preview your image at the printed size and ensure everything is correct before ordering your final print.

Step 4:  Order Print

  • A 50% deposit is required for all print services.
  • Turnaround time depends on the scope of the project
  • Stretched canvas takes 1-2 weeks.

Step 5:  Pick up prints

  • Curbside pickup is the norm for picking up prints at this time (Updated October 16, 2020).
  • Delivery is available ($20 delivery charge for City of Calgary).
  • Shipping is available (cost depends on your location). Typically it costs approx $25 to ship a 17″x22″ box with 10 prints in it, to somewhere like Okotoks or High River.
