Elevating the Portrait Experience: 9 Steps to Seamless Wall Art Delivery



Creating portraits for clients involves more than just snapping photos. It's about crafting an experience that leaves them delighted and stress-free, from initial consultation to final delivery. For me, that means going the extra mile to ensure that not only are the portraits exquisite but also that they seamlessly integrate into my clients' spaces. Here's a peek into the nine additional steps I take to make this happen:


  1. Capture photos of my client's walls: Understanding the environment where the portraits will hang is crucial. I take detailed photos of my client's walls to envision how the artwork will complement their space.

  2. Create virtual design mock-ups: Using advanced software, I generate virtual mock-ups of the portraits on their walls. This allows clients to visualize different sizes and frames, ensuring they make informed decisions.

  3. Confirm favorites and selected frames: During a personalized ordering appointment, we finalize the selection of portraits and frames. This ensures that every detail aligns with the client's vision.

  4. Order high-quality materials: I spare no expense when it comes to materials. From solid wood frame moulding to UV glass and acid-free matboard, I invest in top-notch supplies to guarantee longevity and preservation of the artwork.

  5. Finalize retouching and order prints: Attention to detail is paramount. Before printing, I meticulously retouch the images to ensure they meet the highest standards of quality and clarity.

  6. Inspect frames and prints upon delivery: Upon receiving the materials, I conduct thorough inspections to ensure they meet my expectations. Quality control is key to delivering flawless artwork.

  7. Deliver to professional framer: I entrust the framing process to skilled professionals who share my commitment to craftsmanship. This step ensures that the final product exceeds expectations.

  8. Pickup completed wall portraits: Once framed, I personally pick up the portraits from the framer. This hands-on approach allows me to maintain control over the process and guarantee quality.

  9. Deliver finished order to clients: Finally, I deliver the finished artwork to my clients' doorsteps or arrange for convenient pickup. Seeing their portraits professionally framed and ready to hang never fails to bring joy to their faces.


Choosing the right frame is a crucial decision in the portrait process. Some clients gravitate towards classic options like gold or silver, while others prefer the timeless appeal of black or the warmth of wood tones. Personally, I love to mix and match frames to create visual interest and complement the unique style of each portrait.


In conclusion, while these additional steps may require more time and effort, they are undoubtedly worth it. The satisfaction of seeing my clients enjoy their portraits without the hassle of printing and framing themselves is priceless. By elevating every aspect of the portrait experience, I strive to create not just artwork but cherished memories that will be treasured for years to come.
