Frequently asked questions about BlueMonoclePrints

I'm happy to customize the appearance of any of the prints in my shop. If you'd like to change the print size, the border size, or the color and tone, or if you would like any other customizations (like adding custom text), please contact me to set up a custom order.
Gift messaging is available for all items in my shop. Please include a note to me during checkout that the order is a gift, and include any text you'd like to appear on a card. I'll print and include a small note card with your message for free.

For orders that you specify as a gift, I'll include a gift invoice in the package that omits all pricing information.

Unfortunately, gift wrapping is not available.
All prints come unframed. For best protection when framing, use all acid-free materials and choose glass or acrylic with UV filtering. It’s best not to hang your print where it will be exposed to direct sunlight. For the widest range of options, take your print to a local frame shop for a custom frame. Most frame shops have a large selection of mats and frames, and will be able to size the materials exactly as you like. If your print is in a standard size, another option is to purchase an off-the-shelf, standard-size frame at an art supply store in your area. Most art supply stores stock a wide range of ready-made frames. There are also many online frame shops that sell high quality frames. Feel free to contact me for recommendations.
