Can I ship a photo gift directly to a friend of family member?
A. Yes. Be sure to complete the ship to address during the checkout process to
include your giftee. Note that all items in your cart must be shipped to the

Q. How do I know if my photo is good enough resolution to include on a custom
A. We understand that the whole dpi, resolution image standards can be confusing
to most consumers. If an image is uploaded and we find that the image cannot be
reproduced on a photo gift with quality then we will contact you and discuss
other options. The best way to handle this is to set your digital camera to the
highest resolution setting. Most digital cameras (excluding camera phones) sold
in the last few years should produce an image with high enough resolution to
reproduce on your photo gift selections. When scanning an image please use 300
dpi or higher. Generally this setting is easily found within your scanner
software. Back to faqs >>
Q. What is the dye sublimation process and how is it used to make custom photo
A. The basic dye sublimation process uses a special heat sensitive dye to print
graphics and text onto paper. This is called a transfer. The paper is then
placed on a specially treated substrate item and both are placed into a heat
press. Back to faqs >>
When the heating cycle is completed, the image on the paper has been transferred
to the item and has actually become a part of the surface. Run your finger
across the surface of a sublimated product and you will feel nothing but see
vivid remarkable colors. Back to faqs >>
