1. What types of Products do you sell?
Our products include photographic prints, digital jpegs, custom matted and/or framed photos, and various specialty items. Each product featured in our store is reproduced from the original digital file, or negative using state-of-the-art-technology. Following the selection of an image our team oversees the creation of your piece of fine art through reproduction, assembly and shipping.


2. What is a Photographic Print?
We offer prints in a variety of sizes, ranging from 5"x7" to 20"x30". Our panoramic prints are 10"x20". If you are interested in larger photo sizes please contact us. When you purchase a photographic print, your image will be printed on high-quality stock with archival ink and UV protection. This ensures the appropriate environment to preserve your photograph for many years of enjoyment. Photographic prints ship in 7-10 business days after sale.


3. What is a Custom Framed and/or Matted Photo?
Most of our custom framed photos are available in two options: metal or wood and are offered in a variety of colors. Wood frames are available in black or dark walnut finish. Metal frames are available in black, gold or silver finish. Most of our framed photos are available with an option to be matted with an acid-free double mat with a beveled edge. Our custom frame shop offers a choice of mat colors; black, ivory, blue, grey and burgundy. Premium True Glass provides clear, lightweight protection for your art. This presentation allows us to preserve your photograph for many years of enjoyment. Custom framed photos ship 3-4 weeks after sale.


4. Does the image on your site accurately represent what I will be sent?
Each image has been captured by a professional photographer and is reproduced from a digital file or negative using state-of-the-art technology. However, we cannot guarantee that the printed product will accurately reflect the color settings of your monitor or mobile device. Online proof images: Light or dark proofs will be corrected during printing. All photos are professionally printed on high quality photo paper and are unconditionally guaranteed.

5. I have noticed the Sport Graphics symbol appears on your online photos. What is this and why is it on the photography? You are referring to a "watermark" that has been placed on the photos you see on our site to ensure that no one downloads the images without permission or pirates the photos without proper authorization. Please be assured that this marking will not be on photography products purchased from the store. Note that all our photo prints and digital images are produced with a © Sport Graphics logo on them in the lower right hand corner of all images.

6. Can a color photo be converted to black & white?
Yes, call our customer service department at 508-925-0406 and we can assist you on this matter.
7. Can I purchase the digital file instead of ordering a print copy of the picture?
Yes, per the license agreements we have in place with each organization and photographer, we are able to sell or distribute digital files at this time. They are available on our website.

-- Locating Photographs:


1. How do I find my photograph after the event?
Simply click on a regatta name on the front page of the site under the recent regattas section. If the photos have not been posted yet, you may submit your e-mail address and we will notify you with a hyperlink as soon as they are posted.


2. How do I find my photograph once they are available for viewing?
Once the photographs are posted online, you can access the photographs by first visiting the event page which is accessed by clicking on regatta name on either the site’s front page (www.sportgraphics.com) under the recent regattas section or click on the “all regattas” button. Once you are on a regatta page, you can either choose a school or club name and/or event name to minimize the number of proofs to view or simply browse through all photos from the event that are displayed below the search fields. Note: in events that we cannot ID a specific school or club, we list them as “A-Help us Identify”.

3. Do you have photographs of every participant for every event?
Unfortunately no. While we do our best to capture top-quality, identifiable photographs of every participant, the circumstances of event photography make this impossible. While Sport Graphics has been recognized as the industry leader for its coverage, quality, and customer experience, there are always a few participants who manage to sneak by our photographers.

 

-- Ordering Photos:


1. If I encounter a problem while submitting my order, should I just resubmit?
If you are unsure your order was properly submitted, contact our Customer Service Team at (508) 925-0406 or via e-mail at support@sportgraphics.com and we will be happy to assist you.

2. What if I have placed a duplicate order?
If you feel you have placed a duplicate order, please contact our Customer Service Team at (508) 925-0406 or via e-mail at support@sportgraphics.com and we will be happy to assist you.

3. Can I cancel an order after it has been submitted?
Yes. To cancel an order, have your order number available and contact our Customer Service Team at (508) 925-0406 or via e-mail at support@sportgraphics.com.

4. What payment options are accepted?
We accept most major credit cards from most countries (Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover), checks and money orders; International customers who are not able to supply credit card information must submit payment in the form of an international money order, drawn from US funds. Please note that prices, item availability, and shipping charges are subject to change without notice.

5. I just ordered a print that showed "Usually ships in 7 to 10 business days" but after framing the item and adding it to my Shopping Cart, it now shows "Usually ships in 3 to 4 weeks". What happened?
Not to worry. The timeframe change reflects the average time it takes our framers to complete your custom frame.

6. I tried adding photographs to my cart, but haven’t had any success. What’s going wrong?
To order through the Sport Graphics web site, you must have “cookies enabled” which will permit you to use the shopping cart feature.

When we ship your order in multiple packages, these packages may arrive on separate days. Nonetheless, you should still receive your entire order within the estimated delivery date.

8. How do I know that my item has shipped?
When your order ships; we e-mail to you an order shipping confirmation e-mail. If tracking service is available, we’ll include the tracking or airway bill number in your shipping confirmation e-mail (if you do not receive a tracking or airway bill number, then a tracking service is not available for your package).
