Trimming your prints for a professional look
After prints are mounted to the board of your choice, we carefully trim the print and board
together for a nice, clean edge.  You may specify for us to leave a white border, or trim to
the edge of the image (or color).  Our standard practice is to trim to the edge of the
image.

Boards come in many sizes.  We often try to help you choose board and poster size
configurations to help maximize your budget.  There are many cases where a 1/2"
decrease in width or height can save you money on both the prints and the mounting
costs.  Usually this makes no difference in your intended appearance, unless the print
needs to be an exact size for framing purposes.  Please consult a sales representative
for the best combination for you and your budget.  We are always thinking to help our
customers!
