Submitting A Photo
To insure your photo will be engraved with the best quality please consider these things when submitting a photo.
Social media sites and text messaging a photo will cause it to be downsized. This can take away from the quality of the photo and will take away the quality of the engraving.
The closer the photo of the person being engraved the better. Having a photo of just the person you want engraved is the best option. If you don't have a photo of the person alone please understand that if I receive a photo of a group with several people, the photo will not edit the best for engraving.
Lighting is essential to how your photo will turn out.
Best Option - Will lit, even light with color variations (not a ton of black clothing and dark areas)
When submitting a recipe or other handwriting sample to be engraved onto an item please make the images as close as possible to the first image below.
Samples can be emailed to email@example.com
The best samples are taken in even lighting with no glares or shadows. The photo is as straight on as possible.
This is a great photo to have edited for engraving. All corners and sides of the card are almost perfectly square.
Not Good! This photo will produce skewed engraving because it was taken at an angle. The lighting is great but the top if the recipe will be skinnier than the bottom - making it look almost pyramid shaped.
Not Good! - This photo is taken straight on but the shadows will produce engraving that is lighter and darker.
