We had a reply from the printing company this morning to say they could not help us in respect of a canvas picture of Maggie. However, they knew of someone who might, and gave us their email address.
We sent off a copy of our original message and got on with other things.
A response came in shortly afterwards, that yes they could help us and asking for details.
What followed was several messages and a phone call, the result of which was they could do more with an original snapshot or computer chip image, so we got in the car and drove the 29 miles to their studio.
We had taken two snapshots and four other images on a USB key and it was nice to be able to have a (masked) face to face discussion about something so important to us.
Neither of the above were chosen, but we have been able to provide a good picture they can work with, and we’ll be able to collect it on Monday.
Their studio is full of lovely prints and some are on canvas. Maggie’s picture won’t be in a frame, but will be treated so that it doesn’t lose its colour. We think they will do a good job for us and at £35, we think a reasonable price.
From there, we went to collect a new coffee table which we shall be putting together tomorrow. In all, we’ve done a round trip of some 75 miles this afternoon, so we’ve had an early night and this will be my last post of the day.
