Do I need to sign up for my photo to be taken at graduation?
We will photograph each and every graduate at Commencement. No appointments are necessary. Up to three photographs may be taken of you as you cross the stage and exit the stage area.

How do you know where to send my proofs?
We will receive a set of addresses for the graduating class from the registrar’s office. We have never and will not sell or share the address/email information provided to us to any other vendor. Or you can pre-register to receive proofs quicker and receive an added discount.

When can I expect to see my proofs?

Proofs are also mailed to all graduates with a complete mailing address at that same time via first class mail from the list provided by the registrar’s office

Is there any obligation to order?
