If you have used FinerWorks before for online ordering, this guide will help you make sure you have not overlooked some of the tools we offer.
What is Drop Shipping?
One of the first things we did when we built our initial ordering system over a decade ago was provide an automatic drop shipping option. Drop shipping simply means you do not need to carry any inventory or worry about packaging and shipping. You commission the drop shipper (which would be FinerWorks) to send the order to your customers but branded under your name so it looks like you or your company shipped it.
Many big online companies rely on this method either solely or to let them ship products which they normally would not be able to inventory. Amazon.com uses this method for some of the items sold and at the individual level Ebay and Esty sellers use this method all the time.
How it Works
At checkout in the area where you select your “Shipping Method” will be a check box you can click to indicate you want it drop shipped. If you provide a valid address in your account’s business profile, we will automatically check this for you. The order is then shipped and made to look like you are the sender. No information about us will be included. Prices will also be removed from the packing slip.
The following type of prints come ready to hang: framed prints, wood prints, acrylic prints, metal prints (with the exception of some styles), stretched and mounted canvas prints and metal prints will arrive ready-to-hang. Some other types of prints may have styles that also allow for them to be ready to hang.
No. We have found non facemounted acrylics to be subpar in image quality therefore we have moved to the more popular face mounted acrylic print option which is able to take advantage of both the superior color gamut and resolution that modern inkjet offers on high quality photo papers as well as the protective face of an acrylic front which gives acrylic prints an extra dimension in contrast and vividness
Yes, we can for quantities of 5 or more of the exact same time. Contact us direct since our website does not allow for ordering all custom sizes in acrylic prints.
The method used to create the acrylic prints we offer will provide little risk in fading unless exposed to direct sunlight over a length of time. Since acrylic is a type of polycarbonate, very hot conditions such as a hot car exposed to sunlight can potentially cause it to warp. It is best to keep it indoors in comfortable living conditions exist to prevent this from happening. Also a good measure to help reinforce the acrylic print is the optional die bond backing.
Some people may be surprised to see that acrylic prints look incredibly sharp when printing a high resolution, sharp and crisp image file. That is because the acrylic prints we offer are face mounted prints in which the image is printed on our satin luster paper or metallic paper. It is then face mounted to the back of the acrylic. The printers used for these papers are high resolution Canaon inkjet photo printers which is why these have the potential to look so sharp.
