Paul W Faust - Impressions of Light

Print Order Question

I am starting to do more abstract photography again.
As I edit my images I rotate them to what I think is the best look,
but I know that others may like them another direction.
That make me wonder about the people who order abstract prints
since there is no real required direction for them.
Can a buyer state what direction they want the image to be framed?
If it is vertical can they say they want it horizontal, or which side they want on top, if framed?

from my understanding, the printing department has no idea where to put the hooks, and they put them in a random spot each time. i'm guessing the customer has no choice, but i guess they can reset the hanger. though if it has a wire, it may be harder.

most people just sign the bottom so they know how it goes.

I think it is printed as ordered Paul.

I actually just did an abstract myself and was going to simply list it both horizontal and vertical.


these are photos so not signed.

JC - what does as ordered mean?
if they can order it as they want it then that means they can say what way they want it framed to hang.
no matter if you list it vert. or horiz it could still look better at 180 degrees to how it appears
so they should be able to order it that way. It's all a simple matter of allowing the buyer to say what side they want on top.
I don't know what any of these framed prints look like - never bought one.
I'm on here to sell, not buy. I guess you buy some to resell, but I don't need to.
I can (if I ever get my printer hooked up again) make my own prints to frame and sell,
which is what I will do as soon as I can get these other home jobs finished
and can get back to my photography.

The framed prints look great. I did get one for live shows.

Basically, they will print them as they are displayed on FAA. There is a number the client can call and specify if they wanted it mounted a different way, but it doesn't say that and I doubt most clients would do that just on a whim.

I haven't uploaded the second abstract yet but have one fall shot that is offered in two options as shown below.

cool - a number is great for them to use
Is that option easy for a buyer to see, or is it dumb luck to find it?

I might start adding a note on select images that image rotation is available
for those who want it to hang a different way than it is shown.
Then you don't have to upload added images to cover it.
Just on the images that can be rotated for a new look.

TBH the number is for customer support in general and not specifically for the reason you ask but I am pretty sure they will do whatever the client requests.


Let's see if Beth knows if orders can be rotated upon request. BETH? can they?

She is probably asleep but I will make sure she sees this tomorrow.


It is printed as directly what you upload.

If you wish different rotations, you will need to add the rotations in your galleries.
