3. I purchased a digital file of my personalized product. Where do you recommend for printing?

We recommend printing your product at your favorite print lab. We will send you instructions on what is the best paper of choice for your particular product. However, we cannot guarantee the print quality of any print lab of your choice. If there is an issue with the outcome of your printed product then you will need to speak to that print lab. We do guarantee that your digital file will be a 300 dpi, high resolution image which will print at a high quality print.

4. What kind of paper do you recommend that I print my product on?

Chalkboard Prints – on a matte paper. If matte isn’t available at your print lab of choice then you can select lustre. It is not suggested to print chalkboard prints on a glossy finish.
Wall Art – on a heavy weight matte paper. If matte isn’t available at your print lab of choice then you can select lustre.
Photo Cards – on a heavy weight paper with your choice of lustre, semigloss or glossy finish.
Invitations – on a heavy weight paper with your choice of lustre, semigloss or glossy finish.

5. How do I send my digital file to the printer?

When you receive your digital file via email, we recommend downloading the file to your computer first. Then you can either upload the file to your favorite print lab of choice by the internet or you can save your file to a usb/portable drive and take it into the store.

We do not recommend sending your file to a print lab via a cell phone as cell phones compress files.

What resolution are your digital files?

All of our printable digital files are 300 dpi, high resolution images. This will result in a high quality print. It is recommended to print your photo at the size that you purchased for the highest quality.

6. What do I do if I tried to print my file and it says it is a low resolution file?

We guarantee your digital file is a 300 dpi, high resolution image, regardless of which size you ordered. We suggest double checking that you are printing at the size that you purchased. For example if you purchased an 11×14 then be sure you are printing it at an 11×14 size.
