*What kind of photos should I use for cards and custom canvas?

You should make sure that you have the right to re-produce the photo you pick. If it's a photo from a professional photographer, you must have a release from them. If you have questions about whether you can reproduce a photo, please contact the photographer. Also please check
HERE to see our policy regarding photo reproduction.

Your photo should be a high resolution, high quality photo. Professional photos work great, but your photo definitely doesn't have to be professional. Most digital cameras will take pictures with very high quality.

You should send a high-resolution copy of your photo. While photo cards do not require a extremely large file, canvas art will require a full resolution photo.

We will try to contact you if it looks like your photo is not going to be big enough for optimal results.

Color photos are best to start with. Color photos CAN be turned to black and white. However, photo files that are sent in black and white cannot have color added back in.

*Do you have any tips for printing?

Each of our cards is built with a printing "ditch". This is an area left around the outside of the card that prevents printing or essential photo elements from being cut off during printing. However, whenever you are printing....check the essential elements in a "preview" before printing. Double checking never hurts.

Most online printers offer a way to upload your photo card and order with envelopes. Also, ordering 5x7 cards as "postcards" and then getting your own envelopes can save a lot of money.

Most printers offer several "finishes". Usually matte and glossy. Pick the one that is right for you.

Before using a printer, search online for any available coupon codes. Another way to be advised of printing sales and specials, is to join e-mail lists or "like" a company on Facebook.
