Digital Imaging

You may create cards on our web site using digitised images. Your photos/images/logos can come from a digital camera or a scanner. Any image you plan to use must be saved at 300 DPI at 100% output size for the best printing results.

Images from a Digital Camera

If you wish to use photos from a digital camera, before you take pictures make sure the camera is set at a high enough resolution to result in 300 DPI at the intended photo print size. Most cameras have different settings for resolutions. The highest resolution for your camera depends on how many megapixels it has. You cannot improve the resolution of a photo after it is taken, except by reducing its printed dimensions (after you upload the image).

Images from a Scanner

Like a digital camera, a scanner must be set to the appropriate resolution. Set your scanner's resolution so that it results in 300-dpi at the image's print size.

Images from Internet

Most images found on the Internet do typically have a resolution of 72 DPI. This resolution is too low for quality digital printing.
