What are the advantages of Print on Demand?

Our print on demand service allows you to: 

1)    Select the exact size you need for your customer or client. So if the standard print is too small or large for the space you have in mind, you can have it reduced or enlarged. The only limitation here is that the size you choose must be in proportion to the original image size and shape. Our Price calculator ensures that you choose a size that meets this requirement.

2)    Get what you need quickly. We recognise there are times when you or your customer simply cannot wait a week to 10 days or more for you to get the print for them. If you select one of our selection of Print on Demand images, we will aim to get the print or canvas to you within 48 to 72 hours allowing you to meet a tight schedule or deadline.

Print on Demand is more expensive than buying a print of the equivalent size. This is because each order is dealt with and printed individually (rather than in batches of 500 or 1000) and the printing process is very high quality and therefore more costly.

What Images do we Offer?

ZigZag Art now has immediate access to more than 20,000 images from many of the world’s top art Publishers including Winn Devon, Image Conscious, World Art Group, Canadian Art Prints, Top Art, Wild Apple and Art in Motion. You can select images on this website in a number of ways – by subject matter, by Publisher or by artist. You can also look for images with particular colours in them.

How we Print

We use the latest Epson wide format printers and use genuine Epson K3 Ultrachrome fade resistant inks. This, coupled with the fact that we use state of the art colour management software, means that you can rely on getting consistently high quality reproduction of the images you select.

What Materials can we print on?

We can print the images you select onto either heavyweight matte paper or canvas. If you select a photographic image we can also print it onto heavyweight gloss paper.

How you will receive your Order

Everything that you order as a Print on Demand item will arrive ‘rolled’ in a sturdy tube in a next day courier service. So if it is on paper you can then frame it; if it is on canvas you can then stretch it using stretcher bars. We do not currently offer a ‘stretching’ service.

What Options are there with Canvas prints?

If your image is to be printed on canvas, we will assume you want it with a a ‘gallery wrap’ finish (where the image wraps around the side of the canvas) unless you specifically request an alternative finish. We will always allow sufficient border for you to wrap the canvas around the stretcher bars but if you have specific requirements for the size of border you want, please just let us know.

What is the Maximum Size we can print?

The maximum size we can print in house on paper is 1 metre on the shorter side; on canvas it is 90 cms on the shorter side (because we have to allow for a printed border). So, on paper, we can print for example the size of 2 metres by 1 metre but we cannot print in house 1.2 by 1.2 metres. If you need something larger than we are able do in house, we should be able to source from the Publisher, should time allow. 

Can we Crop an image for you?

With the majority of images we offer, we can crop the image to a certain extent. So if the proportions of the image are not quite what you are looking for or if there is an element of the image you want removed, contact us and we will let you know what the options are.

What is the Price shown on the ZigZag Art Print on Demand website?

The price shown in the Price Calculator (once you have selected your image and decided what size you want and whether you want it printed on paper or canvas) is the retail price excluding VAT and any relevant packing and shipping charges.
