3. Can I change the wording on the invitations?
The templates are all blank so you can put in any amount of text you would like.
4. Can I get a custom made design?
Yes choose the blank template option and start designing your own card from scratch.
5. I want to change the colours of the design I’ve found?
It’s not possible to change the background colour of a specific design. If you’ve found a design you like but want a different colour we recommend that you browse through our design selection and try to find a different design with more suiting colours or contact us by email or alternately call us on 071-9133409.
6. What kind of file format is required?
Our website accepts photos uploaded in the following format: JPEG, GIF, BMP or PNG. You will be able to view if your file is in the correct format by viewing the file properties to see the name for example Baby.jpeg, Baby.png, Baby.gif etc
7. What kind of picture resolution is required?
A resolution of 200-300 dpi for the photo will result in a high-quality card being produced. The average digital picture is approximately 500KB or above and this will result in a high quality printed card. To check the type and size of your file copy your picture to your PC desktop and right click on your image and click on “Properties” at the end of the list. Under the “General” tab you are able to view the type and size of your file.
8. Checking Picture Quality
If you have uploaded a high-resolution picture you will be able to zoom into the uploaded picture and position it correctly within your artwork design.
NB: The higher the resolution of the image the greater the flexibility of the zoom feature.
9. Do I have to use a digital camera?
Ideally, digital cameras produce the best quality pictures. Most people use their smartphones. If you are happy with the quality of the photo go ahead and upload it.
10. What kind of picture works best?
Try to avoid taking pictures with the flash as this can often wash out colours. Also, try to avoid distracting backgrounds and colours. Neutral backgrounds or a neutral rug often provide great pictures.
11. How do I insert fadas or other language letters?
For Fadas please type directly in the Edit Element Text box in the personalise stage, please hold down CTRL & ALT button together and then press your desired Letter ( á,é,í,ó,ú). For another language please refer to your windows/ computer help or alternately google your desired word and copy and paste the text into the Edit Element Text box directly. Any problem contacts us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
