Testimonials

Testimonial-Marcy Distributors' comments about Ovation.

“I cannot thank you and your incredible team enough for all of the work you did for my client. He is thrilled, as is his VP.

I’m sure that the 1000 employees at the Lockheed-Martin SpaceSystems Center in PA will be honored to own this piece of art.

We were really in a pickle when I called you, and you calmly got us out of a major jam. I know I must have sounded crazy the first time I spoke with you.

You all did an amazing job for such a last minute rush. I am grateful for your grace and attention to detail.

You can be sure I will recommend Ovation Framing to all of my clients and colleagues!”

You’ve made me a hero!”

They are very elegant and artistic! Bravo!

Testimonial-Kris Distributors' comments about Ovation.

“Just a quick email to let you know that my client was BLOWN AWAY!

She didn’t realize it was going to be so big – and she concluded that it was “gloriously large”!

I think it took her breath away.

She loved the way the printing looked as well, she couldn’t tell that it wasn’t engraved - Yes, it looked that good!

At some point I will go over and see “it” on the wall in person.

I was told pictures didn’t do it justice.  Again, many, many thanks!”

 Kris

 
Testimonial-Marla Distributors' comments about Ovation.

“I got word late Friday that the CEO of Twitter, who was the recipient of the piece,
just LOVED IT!

Just wanted to let you know and thank you again for all that you did to make it happen for us.

Really appreciate it.”

FAQ

Q. Is a digital image’s resolution the same as dots-per-inch (DPI)?

A. Yes. The resolution of digital images is generally expressed in dots per inch (DPI), or pixels per inch (PPI).
It is also worth noting that the over all quality of a digital image is generally related to the size of the image’s file. The larger an image file size generally means a better source image in terms of it’s detail, clarity or resolution, contrast, color gamut and the physical or printed size of the image.

The downside of large, detailed image files is they are often difficult to transfer especially as email attachments.

Another way to get your image files to us is to use an application called “Dropbox”. You can transfer files up to 5GB. Call us for getting and we’ll make arrangements for our file transfers. Call us at (800) 931-0535
