What file types do you accept? Is there a size limit?

How do I know if a photo is suitable for printing?

To determine the resolution of your photo, you need to measure ‘dots per inch’ or dpi. It is best if your photo is at least 300 dpi for the best printing results. To measure dpi, take the dimensions of your digital photograph, let’s say 2000 x 3000 pixels, and divide it by the physical space you have to cover on the Fresh Dirt card design with your photograph. For example, if the photo covers the entire card, that is a 5”x7” space. 2000 x 3000 divided by a 5”x7” space equals a dpi of about 400. So to achieve a 300 dpi for a 5x7 card, your picture’s dimensions would need to be at least 1500 x 2100 pixels.

Fresh Dirt Customer Service will contact you if the designer does not feel that your photo will produce a clear quality image in the selected design.

What does it mean if my photo is below the minimum requirements?

Your photo may not have enough pixels, which can result in a grainy or pixilated final product. In addition, attempting to resize the photo might distort the image quality. Since the overall appearance of your stationery is highly dependent on the quality of your photographs, it is important to use clear, original and unedited photos.

How do I upload photos?

Simply click the browse button to select a file from your computer and hit enter.  When uploading, always upload your originals so we have the best quality file to work with.

Can a Fresh Dirt designer edit my photos?
