Select the file type before you click OK (the file type should be PDF or source, depending on your browser).

Ordering Custom Sizes

For custom sized prints your image needs to be sized to exactly what you require.

You will need to select the next largest size to the size you require.

For example, if you need an 18x38 you will need to select a 20x40. Your file must be sized to the size you want output (18x38).

(Generally, we can only do custom sizing to the closest ½”.)

Once you drop the image into the panel you will need to select the Crop or Fit button, which appears when you click inside the main panel.

Custom Size 01
When you click on the Crop or Fit button it will open up some white space.

Please let us know if you want the white trimmed off in the special instructions area upon checkout.

You must also put a note in the special instruction indicating it is a custom size and the specific size you want.

Custom Size 02
If you are doing a custom sized Metal Print, you will need to click the radio button in the options that says Allow to fit, and you will be charged accordingly for cutting a custom size. Cost for cutting varies based on the size of the metal being cut.

You need to specify the exact size you need.

During installation of the native install on a Windows platform the error is thrown when the install is at the "removing backup files" point.

Error 1001: Exception occurred while initializing the installation.

System.Argument Exception: String cannot have a zero length..

Acknowledging the error then removes the application.

The error is caused by files left over from a previous, other client installation. These files are located in

C:Users\<THEUSER>\AppData\Local\Temp NOTE: AppData is a hidden folder

Three files can be present. RWSCleanup.dll, RWSCleanup.InstallState and RWSCleanup.txt.
