Letter Photography based in st. Louis, MO


Start by looking through our letter galleries to decide which choices you would like for your final product.  Then email us (jamsam@alphatography.net) with the word and the letter/number combinations that you'd like to see put together.

For example, for "jamsam", you would email us the word - jamsam - and the letter/number choices you like best - J2, A4, M3, S1, A3, M2

We will then create a mock-up for you and email it back to you for proofing.  We can make any changes to the mock-ups that you would like.

PLEASE give us an ideal completion date for your order!  We will make every attempt to meet your needs, but we also work full-time jobs and have children & husbands to care for.  We ask for at least 1 full week to process & complete your order; this week "begins" once the final mock-up is approved by you.  If orders are needed at a faster rate, there will be an additional charge of 20% added onto the total.

For standard 4x6 prints, the cost is $5/letter.

Words/names are attached to black mattes, and the mattes are cut to standard frame sizes. 
        For 3, 4, or 5-letter words/names, the cost for matting is $5 per word/name.
        For 6, 7, or 8-letter words/names, the cost for matting is $10 per word/name.

We can matte words/names up to 8 letters - we have not found standard frames for more than 8 letters, so that would have to be a custom framing job.  Therefore we don't have the mattes cut ahead of time.

3 letters + matte = $20
4 letters + matte = $25
5 letters + matte = $30
6 letters + matte = $40
7 letters + matte = $45
8 letters + matte = $50

We accept cash, checks, or credit cards (through Square).



For names longer than 8 letters or for those that prefer a monogram...

Option 1: 2 4x6 prints on the sides and a 5x7 in the middle

Option 2: 2 5x7 prints on the sides and an 8x10 in the middle

Monogram Pricing
Option 1: $17.50 + $5 matte = $22.50
Option 2: $25 + $5 matte = $30

For prints larger than 4x6, a $5 shipping cost will be added on to the total.  Rush shipping will be $7.

We also offer a poster that has the entire alphabet included!  This would be great for a children's room or a play area.

The poster is available in sizes:
8 in. x 10 in. - $15 + shipping/handling
11 in. x 14 in. - $20 + shipping/handling
16 in. x 20 in. - $30 + shipping/handling
20 in. x 30 in. - $35 + shipping/handling

Even though you pay for shipping/handling of the alphabet poster, this product gets shipped directly to you...no need for pick-up from us!

While we do not offer framing, we do cut the mattes to fit standard frames.  We have had great success with finding frames at Hobby Lobby and Michael's.  Hobby Lobby often has 40% off coupons or 50% off their collage and poster frames.

For our mattes:
3 or 4 letter words/names - 10 in. x 20 in.
5 letter words/names - 9 in. x 27 in.
6, 7 or 8 letter words/names - 11 3/4 in. x 36 in.
Monogram Option 1 - 10 in. x 20 in.
Monogram Option 2 - 14 in. x 24 in.

We try to keep a supply of the 4x6 black & white prints, but color and sepia prints we would have to order from our printing company.  Additionally, any sizes other than 4x6 would also have to be ordered.  Once the order is placed, shipping usually takes 1-2 weeks to reach us.  For color, sepia, or larger prints, a $5 shipping cost will be added on to the total.  Rush shipping will be $7.

If you are in the St. Louis area, pick-up can be from one of our homes, as to avoid shipping costs.  Jaime lives in Crestwood near 44/270 and Suzanne lives in Crestwood near 44/Big Bend.

If you are outside St. Louis, a $10 fee for shipping & handling would be added on to the total price.  Product will be shipped after payment is received.

Please do not hesitate to email us with any questions that you might have.  We look forward to hearing from you!
