Orders placed online through PhotoAffections are received by our personnel Monday through Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central time. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you right after you complete the checkout process. If you do not receive this email, please contact us to confirm the order was finalized. The status of your order may also be checked at any time by logging into your account. Your order will ship within 2-3 business days. One additional processing day is required for orders placed after 7 PM Central time. Once your order ships, you can track your package by referring to the shipment confirmation email you will receive on the ship date or by checking the status from your account.
Our normal turnaround time for your first proof is one to two business days. After you approve your proof (when received before 7 PM Central time), your order will be shipped within two business days. Proofs are available for Arte Bella products by written, order-note request. A proof of the front view will be provided. We do not provide 3D proofing of photo blocks.
Availability of the Online Preview Tool requires the use of Internet Explorer version 7 or 8, Firefox, Chrome or Safari with Adobe Flash Player.
For orders using our Online Preview System, just upload your images while previewing your card. These images will be submitted to us automatically when you place your order. If you place your order without creating a preview, please refer to your confirmation email for photo upload instructions.
Please read our Photo Requirements for more information on sending us your photos and additional helpful recommendations.
In addition to the Online Preview, if you've opted to receive a free digital proof, you'll get a proof notification via email within 1 business day. To provide you with the quickest turnaround time possible, if changes/corrections are needed, please be as thorough as possible in your first proof response, as each response may extend the order by a full business day.
Please be reasonably confident in the images you've selected before placing an order by screening your images on your computer. Be sure to consider horizontal/vertical images compared to the orientation of the design sample, in addition to overall quality (i.e. clarity, resolution, exposure, etc.).
