Expanded Perspective is an American owned and operated small business. We have a small staff and we host our online store with Shopify.
Shopify pay (supported by Stripe) is a secure checkout.
Additionally, we use a Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL, which is an encrypted connection between your device and the server where our website is located. This connection keeps your photo, name, address, and credit card information secure between you and us.
When you upload a personal photo to our website, that photo is securely stored on Shopify's servers via encrypted connection. We then go into this server and create your piece of graphic art with the image. Once we are done with your art file, it is sent to you via email and subject to the security on your email server.
We then send your art file to our printing company for their one-time-use printing process to create your product.
We will not EVER sell or give away your photo or personal information to individuals or other companies. We delete personal photos after 90 days (retained for customer service purposes) and we keep your art file to use in personalized marketing images that will only ever be sent to your email address associated with your order.
We do not sell or share your email address with anyone.
Second, you upload your photo and crop to fit the product. Each product has the photo crop option locked to the correct aspect ratio so that your uploaded photo is cropped how YOU want it to look on the product when we print it for you.
Third, you tell us how you want the color style to be on your art file. Do you want the art file to have vibrant or washed colors?
Next, you tell us whether or not you want us to send you the digital art file for an additional $10 charge.
Make sure you have selected the size of product you want and add to cart!
After your purchase, our artist will create a piece of art based on your photo and with your selected vibrant or washed color style! We will then email you THREE art file options - sort of like school picture example poses sent home with your child. You choose your favorite of the three options, and we will send it to our printing company.
When the printing company receives the final art file from us, they will print your product and ship it to the address you entered at checkout.
