PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

The information, materials, products and services posted or offered within this site are subject to change. Not all products and services are available in all geographic areas. Your eligibility for particular products or services is subject to final determination by and approval of Christy Shaterian Photography and/or its affiliates. If you purchase portraits from us, we hope they bring you joy for many years to come.  Our portraits are printed on professional photographic paper and the colors will stay vibrant and true.  All 11×14 and larger wall portraits are coated with a UV protective spray; however, we do not recommend displaying any portraits in direct sunlight.  We also do not recommend placing your portrait in a high humidity environment (such as a bathroom).  Please frame without glass or make certain the print does not touch the glass (use an acid free mat or spacers).  This ensures your portrait can “breathe” and never sticks to the glass.  If storing your portraits in albums, make sure they are ‘archival’ quality and have acid-free pages.  Use photo corners to place prints in albums, do not use glue or plastic overlays.  Certain glues may degrade the integrity and quality of your prints.

DIGITAL FILES

If you purchase digital images, you may print the images up to the size noted on your print release (up to 8×10 inches on small resolution files and up to 16×20 inches on full resolution files).  You may also post these images on-line and share them by email or other social media. You  may not alter or change the images in any way.  You are free to use these images in card templates or other photo merchandise as long as it does not exceed size limitations.  You do not have the right to sell the images or give the images away for commercial or other purposes.  Digital media degrades over time – be sure to make multiple copies of your files and back them up to multiple drives for safekeeping.
