I bought a couple of the prints from Lens Work and they are
indeed very nice.

Jim, it might be interesting to see a sample price list showing
prices for minimum order for a few popular sizes, maybe 5x7, 8x10,
11x14, for "colour"  :-) and B&W.    And also if you could explain 
how the proofing process work between the customer and the printer.
Assuming you take digital input, how does the customer prep
the file (dpi/ppi, color space, RGB vs CMYK ?, etc.).  Also,
what's the typical turn-around ?

Thanks much !
