Here are some
quick and easy tips that will give you the best result for your
photo and make your magnetic birth announcement, save the date
magnet, or kids birthday invitation the best it can be.
1 - Use a
digital camera that has a resolution setting of at least 3 mega
pixels. Make sure your camera setting is on the highest resolution
2 - Make sure
you take the photo in a room where the lighting is good. Low light
is the most common issue for poor photo quality birth announcements,
save the date cards, or photo birthday invitations. Photos taken
outside are the best quality, but as long as the room has adequate
lighting, that will be fine too. If you do decide to take the picture outside, make sure that the sun is not behind your subject. The sun should be lighting the subject from the front side so the digital camera can capture the light on the subject. The best time to take photos outside are in the morning or in the evening when the sun is not super bright.
3 - Do not
crop or adjust your photo before sending it to us. We will take
care of adjusting the photo properly and will send you a proof
of your magnetic birth announcement, wedding magnet, or birthday
invitation before it goes to production. *****IMPORTANT NOTE:
When composing an email to send your photo, select ATTACH FILE,
not ATTACH PHOTO. Most email programs will shrink the file down
if you select attach photo. The photo file should be between 300k
and 3MB in size.
4 - You can
send us your birth announcement photo or other photo in full color
and we will convert it to black and white for you.
5 - Make sure
the birth announcement photo, save the date photo, or kids birthday
invitation photo you selected is clear and not blurry. Sometimes
if you have the camera too close to the subject, the digital camera
will not focus properly.
6 - If ordering
one of the full-length magnetic birth announcement designs like
Blocks & Stripes, take the photo so the baby's entire body is
in the photo. You don't have to zoom in super close to the baby.
We can adjust the photo and make it bigger if needed.
