FAQs - Photographic Wallpapers
Can you make a wallpaper with my own choice of photos?
Yes, I certainly can.
How many photos will you need?
I can make a repeat pattern with a single, carefully chosen image, or a collage design that includes many.
If you'd like me to work with just one, then let's have a chat about what works best.
If you'd like a photo collage of many images then I think that around 50 per square meter works well, and if the wallpaper is to be a standard width of 52cm then, for a look similar to my Mi Casa Su Casa - Full Colour 100 is a good target. If the scale in Mi Casa Su Casa - Mono is more to your liking then 40 would be fine. It's very much a matter of taste.
For a commercial project a larger scale might be a better approach and all my designs are scalable for custom orders.
Can you work with landscape and portrait images, or only square?
I can design with landscape, square or portrait format. I'm also able to work with a mix of formats for a more casual, less structured look. If you'd like me to crop your images to squares, that takes time, so I'll charge a little extra for the service and quote based on the number involved.
What file type should I send and how do I get them to you?
The best results come when I work with high resolution jpegs i.e. over 300 pixels per inch. I'll send you details of a free file sharing service that I like to use.
How long will my Custom Wallpaper take?
I am a great believer in 'right, rather than right now'. I use excellent specialists to print my wallpaper designs and this can take up to four to five weeks from sign-off of the digital proof.
The design process itself can be a matter of days or several weeks depending on the complexity of the work required and the dialogue that we share. It's a very collaborative process, so that you have a wallpaper that really feels right for you.
