Photo Quality Guidelines

Please send us your clearest photo(s).

  • Send the original, uncropped, unprocessed photo. When possible, please send more than one choice of photo.

  • If your image needs to be edited, adjusted, or background removed, we will do that for you.

  • A proof (example of how the engraving will look) will be sent to you for your review and approval before any engraving begins (see samples below).

  • If you are scanning your image, please scan at a resolution of 600 dpi.

  • Acceptable file formats: jpg, gif, psd, tif, pdf (please do not embed images into documents such as Microsoft Word documents, and when emailing please attach them to the email instead of embedding them into the body of the email message)

  • If you are sending a photo from your phone, please do not send phone screenshots.  Instead, go to the photos section of the phone and forward us the actual (original) photo.
