No, you do not need an appointment to pick up. We do suggest an appointment to order your prints since we need an available computer and sales representative to help you place your order. It may be helpful to call ahead if you have not received a call from our studio notifying you your prints are ready for pick up. The due date for completion listed on your order copy is only an estimate. We do expect you to pick up the finished prints and collections within sixty days of your notification of completion. Unless other arrangements are made we have the option to recycle the package materials after sixty days. We reserve the right to charge a reprint and package fee of $30 for orders left over sixty days past notification.
