Colour Proofing for Paper & Canvas Prints

We offer a hard print proof at as an additional cost to our scanning service.  Requesting as hard proof is advisable to ensure close colour matching but customers may opt to print their orders without a proof. In this scenario Thumbnail cannot except responsibility for any colour related complaints.  If the customer chooses to purchase the print proof and the first one is unsatisfactory, the second proof is free. Any subsequent proofs are negotiable depending on circumstances. Please read our Terms & Conditions.

Postage When sending us artwork for scanning, please use a secure courier and package the pictures very carefully with adequate padding. Thumbnail Media cannot take responsibility for damage to paintings which have not been packaged properly. Please refer to our terms and conditions We will return the artwork to you using the same service you chose and will include the cost of this carriage on our invoice.

Framed/un-framed It is helpful if we receive the artwork before it has been framed, alternatively please remove from the frame before sending. We have been successful in scanning behind glass but it is more difficult and obviously also incurs greater carriage costs.

Naming your work Please write the image name in pencil on the back of each piece of artwork you send us. The name is crucial to us for retrieval purposes here and also, in the event of you producing cards from it, this will become the image name printed onto the backs of the cards.

Cropping and 'tatty edges' If you require an image to be cropped after scanning, please provide a mount to demonstrate this, or place a small pencilled corner on the artwork to show us what needs to be done. Please ignore all 'tatty edges' of artwork - all will be tidied away in the process!
