SIMPLE & STANDARD
The Simple and Standard Portraits qualities are known by any number of names, such as Automated and Custom (respectively). They are the two most common styles of photographic prints, which the vast majority of portraits studios offer. Regardless of what we might label them, they are the optimal choice on those occasions where either a finer portrait quality is not required or for budgetary considerations.
The Simple quality is an Automated-Machine quality print and is best for keepsake needs where having the captured memory is more important than the quality of the photograph. The Simple photograph is typically best suited for children portraits or fun, playful photographs destined for family albums.
Custom print quality is manufactured by a Photo-lab Technician, and is typical of most studios top-of-the-line color. The Custom quality is ideal for the vast majority of clients looking for “package printing,” and good color at an attractive price.
Custom printing is also where we derive the reprint pricing for our finest portrait quality, Signature. After your primary Signature photograph has been created and printed (meaning the extensive work has already been completed), reprints from Signature creations are substantially discounted. We accommodate for this by employing the reprint prices from our Custom quality.
Signature Quality is the ultimate in family portraiture – each is rendered solely by the inspired vision of Mark Jordan. From the initial raw digital files and precise color control, to the fastidious detail given to composition, cropping and printing, each aesthetic step is thoroughly considered and painstakingly performed by Mark Jordan.
Underscored by its magnificent, rich color, the Signature Portrait’s lifelike character is deep, rich and warmly stimulating.
Every Signature Portrait utilizes the finest photographic materials and is signed by the artist, Mark Jordan. Signature portraits are guaranteed for a lifetime of enjoyment.
Signature Portraits are offered in two levels of Artistry applications: Classic (moderate retouching) and Masterpiece (meticulous retouching and expression exchanging).
In additional, we provide three Finish styles from which to choose:
• Parchment (handcrafted paper)
• Metallic (archival metal like surface)
• Canvas (where the color layer is embedded into artist’s canvas).
All three portrait qualities are also offered in two surface styles:
• Natural – is the native surface character of the portrait Finish
• Textured – pebble, linen, stipple lacquer or hand-brushed oils
Finally, when viewing our Price Lists, you may notice that Signature Sizes begin at 11×14. The reason being is that the production costs of any size smaller than an 11×14 require the same attention to detail. This does not mean, however, that a size smaller than an 11×14 cannot be ordered. However, the price for smaller Signature Portraits (e.g. 5×7, 8×10) are the same as an 11×14.
We also believe that in order to fully enjoy the aesthetic quality and uniqueness that the Signature portrait exudes, an 11×14 is the smallest dimension one might consider when purchasing a Signature Portrait quality.
We are are currently revising the design of our Price Lists to make them internet friendly. We anticipate our new designs being ready shortly. However, in the meantime, we’ve posted our printed prices lists for you. Please let us know if you have any questions and we’ll be happy to discuss any aspect of our price lists with you.
