Client is responsible for their own monitor calibration.
Quality of final output depends on monitor calibration, file size or resolution and degree of sharpening.

All prints should be cropped to final size. Prints 11x14 or larger, from camera files, should be cropped to the size desired with the resolution blank to leave the file the same resolution and file size as the camera shot it. This allows the printer to interpolate up to the final resolution required giving better print quality.
