Frequently Asked Question

Personalized Prints on Canvas

Why do we print on canvas instead of photo paper?

We like the artistic look that you can only get on canvas. We think you will agree once you get your print. The picture is not meant to be crystal clear like a photo.

Where do you enter your personalization for the print?

When checking out there is a box for that information right below the shipping address information.  If you do not enter there then you must immediately send us an email.  If none is provided then we will complete your order without any. The name and ship designation will, however still be printed.

Why don't we offer framing?

We would have to charge significantly more then you would pay at your local craft store.  If you get it done locally they will be glad to assist you in the many options and choices of the frames.

What is the size of the print?

Two choices: 8x10 and 14x11 (that includes the printed matte the surrounds the photo.  These sizes offer you the flexibility of putting another matte around our printed matte and then placing it in a much larger frame if that is what you want to do.  It is best that you wait until you get your print before purchasing a frame.

Can the print be damaged?

Yes if not handled properly.  Instructions will come with your order to minimize this possibility.

Does the print have to be framed behind glass?

Absolutely not.  We think it looks better without glass avoiding glare from nearby lighting.  You can, however mount behind glass if you prefer.


Cruise Books on CD or Laser Printed

(Links to books our found at the bottom of HOME Page)

What is a cruise book?

Cruise books capture the most personal memories of a Sailor's Navy career. Pictures of friends, port calls and facts about their commands can all be found within the pages. Many former Sailors lose their cruise books over time, and then desperately look for a copy in their retirement years.
Similar to high school or college yearbooks, they are usually prepared by the crews of ships and shore units, and are filled with stories, photos and graphic artwork that document the lives of those ships or units for a specific period of time. Many photos show crew members on duty and on shore leave, portraying both the routine and the exciting experiences the Sailors have had.

Will the CD work on my MAC?

The standard is for the windows operating system. You would need to request a MAC version when placing your order. The Mac version is a PDF with only the copies of the cruise book not the extras.

Is this a CD or a DVD?


Can I view the cruise book CD on my TV?

Designed to be viewed on a computer. It can be viewed on a TV if you have the proper cabling to hook your PC or laptop to the input video jacks on your TV. The fine print would be very difficult to see on TV because of the lowered resolution. Hi-Definition TVs would be best.
