b. We can also speak directly to your client (representing you of course) in order to better understand their concerns.
c. After the project changes have been made, we can ship the dvd’s or usb thumb drive directly to your customer for you! What could be more efficient then this!
d. If it is our fault, there will not be a charge. Most charges are extremely minimal because we look at you as a partner of ours and as such value our relationship!

How is payment made?
Many avenues here. Call to discuss.

What if I want to do a portion of the editing, like providing you with the montage or if I would like to do the dvd authoring etc…Is this possible?
That is fine with us. The pricing will be adjusted accordingly.

Instead of providing me with a dvd, blu-ray of the final product, can you send me a digital format of my choice so I can do the dvd authoring myself?
Yes, we can provide you with any file format you wish and send it to you via the web or U.S mail.

How long do you hold onto my projects?
We hold onto all project files for a minimum of 6 months. We also send you a backup dvd or HD digital file of the completed project so you will always have a copy just in case. In the event that the job requires re-editing and we have already purged the job from our system, we can take the .mpg off the dvd, make the changes, and re-burn the dvd or even better, you send us back the HD digital file & we work off that.

How long do photo montages take and what format do the pictures need to be in and how do I number them?
They are usually fast-tracked to the front of the line. Usually 1-7 days depending upon other factors. We can accept any format: jpg, tif, bmp…All digital photos must be named for example 001.jpg. 002.jpg, 003.jpg, 003.jpg. You can even US mail the photographs and we can scan them for you. They must be labeled 1, 2, 3, 4…on the back corner of each photograph.

Is there a money back guarantee?
Yes! As in any creative process there are hundreds/thousands of editing possibilities. Our process includes spending a tremendous amount of time finding out your needs ahead of time, and then we count on fine tuning your company’s format, job after job. We will try our best, but if we are unable to satisfy you, we will gladly return your money. FYI: “Never had to return 1 cent in 30 years”

Do you work with clients outside of the USA?
Yes! We work with clients all over the world. The time standards and shipping costs would be adjusted accordingly for clients in other countries.
