I would suggest you ask to come by so you can just meet to see how
their business works. Then bring your portfolio along as a courtesy
to the local employees. I think you will also have promise to email
the JPGs the next day after your get together, as that sounds like
the method they use for sharing potential art buys with other
portions of the project personel located elsewhere.
Make them 640w x whatever pixels high, image quality of 50%, and
include copyright text below the image and a transparent watermark on
the image. See the http://www.science-art.com web site for some
examples of this (Nicholson and Norton both have this sort of
markings on their art.)
