Step 1: Read Quality Photo Considerations

  1. A high resolution photo will produce the best quality photo engraving for you (i.e., photos taken directly from your smart phone or other camera). Using a photo of a photo will produce a lower quality photo engraving. 
    1. We will send you an email if we see any potential issues​ with the photo you have submitted and work out a solution. 
  2. To achieve even greater photo resolution - measured in DPI (dots per inch) - portrait style photos (up-close) work best.

  3. Photo orientation and sizing:
    1. Consider how your photo was taken and how you want your photoengraving to look like. Horizontally or vertically.
    2. Photos can vary in size and proportionality. With that in mind, please note that we will get as close to the dimensions you choose and inform you via email.
  4. Good natural or artificial lighting work best, with minimal to no shadows (i.e., sunlight directly on the face / body works great for photo engravings).
