My photo is blurry/ grainy, can you fix it?
Unfortunately, we cannot correct blurry photo/s. Once submitted and approved, the order is printed and cannot be reprinted for blurry or grainy issues. Please do not send images taken with a phone, or in dim light. Make sure your image is 600KB or above to avoid blurry issues. We have kids too, so if this is all you have, that is fine. We just need to warn you that it will not be sharp on the prints.
When can I expect to receive my invitations?
For Prints: We recommend allowing at least two weeks to recieve your invitations. You can expect a proof to review within 1-2 days (excluding weekends). Changes can take up to a day. Once approved, our printing process generally takes 1-2 business days. This often depends on how many approvals we have at once as we try to gather a certain number of approvals so we can print and ship them in groups. All orders are shipped priority mail and usually takes 2-4 business days depending on your location.
•If you are in a hurry or need your invitations as soon as possible, we recommend ordering our DIY digital option in which you can receive a file you can have printed and picked up at a local Walmart, Walgreens, or print center of your choice.
For Digital: Digital orders can be printed as soon as they are email. We always email a printable proof. You have the option of printing at a lab or at home. Please let us know when you get the proof, so that we can set up a PDF or JPG. The most economical version is to print at a lab such as Walgreen ($0.15 per print) and pick up in an hour after you upload their site.

We recommend no smaller than 1800x1200. If the photo is scanned, you need to be sure that it is scanned at a minimum of 300dpi with 600dpi being preferred.

Please do not send us any cell phone photos, or photos that you grabbed from a social network. (example Facebook, Myspace ect..) The best way to tell if your photos are good to use, is by placing your cursor over the image. If the image size is 300k or more than we are able to use it. If it is 1MB or bigger much better. This basically means the file is bigger and clearer. We will let you know beforehand, but if you still decide to use the blurry photo, we are not responsible for this.
