All photos must be a minimum of 230 dpi
to print clearly on photo cards.
When e-mailing your picture(s) to place
an order, do not compress the photo to make the file size
smaller. Please send it in it's original file size.
If you plan on using a professional picture
for your card, you MUST get permission from the photographer/studio
to use that photo. If you submit a professional photo
for use in one of our cards, you are certifying that you
have obtained the necessary rights from the photographer/studio
for it's use.
Photos with space around the subject work
best to incorporate into the card designs.
Subjects tend to look best if in solid
color clothing. Bright stripes and patterns can sometimes
distract from the overall look and feel of the photo card.
Solid backgrounds or backgrounds without
clutter also tend to work best because it puts the focus
of the picture on the subject, not the background. In
some cases, the background can be removed and changed
to a solid color, but it all depends on the subject in
- Natural lighting will produce the best results when taking
pictures. Try taking pictures during the day in a room with
good sunlight. Pictures taken without a flash will produce
a more natural result.
- Park Thomas Design can touch up photos to make them look
their best. Common services are red eye removal, conversion
to black & white, and editing contrast, brightness and
color. Please note that we can not make a blurry or grainy
picture clear so it's important that all photos submitted
for cards are clear and in focus.

and how they will work with one of the designs, please contact
