We use state-of-the-art digital photographic printers, printing presses and giclee large format printers. They are, however, still machines and all have tolerances in how they move paper during the printing process. To prevent thin white lines from appearing on your prints, every image is slightly enlarged when printed onto the paper. This means you will lose a little of your image around the edges. The amount and location lost will vary from machine to machine and over time, so we recommend you keep all important parts of your picture (heads, feet, text, borders, etc) at least ¼" from the edge.
