Adding text:

Adding text option allows you to choose a text font, the color of the font, location on the image and up to 6 words. Make sure you use any quotation marks, commas, periods, hyphens, exclamation points etc.

Photo location:

Location on certain items where there is more than one choice to place the image. T-shirts have a front, back, chest, front & back and chest & back. Most products have one location available.

Image:

Either a photo or JPEG (.jpg) created design. If you have the capability to add text to a photo and save it as a JPEG, your won't have to pay to "Add text". Make sure you size the JPEG. design to the fit the product size to ensure your text will be visible on the end product.

JPEG (.jpg) - (Joint Photographic Experts Group, usually pronounced JAY-pehg) is also a term for any graphic image file produced by using a JPEG standard. A JPEG file is created by choosing from a range of compression qualities (actually, from one of a suite of compression algorithms). When you create a JPEG or convert an image from another format to a JPEG, you are asked to specify the quality of image you want. You will then want to save the image at the highest quality allowed. This will give us the best image for reproduction.

Photo to product size:

The size the image should be, for us to print on the item you have selected. Most items will not be affected by the size of the image unless you are enlarging the size to fit the item. It may become distorted or grainy.

Try to get as close to the size as possible so the quality of the image is retained. Certain items such as round buttons or magnets will lose some of their edges when conformed to a circle. Items like the can coolie will lose the width of an image due to it being taller. (See Portrait and Landscape format).

Digital photos can be enlarged and reduce with little to no change in quality. How ever images pulled from a web or not an original file will lose its quality. If an image is scanned into the computer it will lose its quality.
