What are your photo requirements for Photo Cards?

To have the best quality photo to work with, we recommend that you upload your original photos and not a resized or cropped version.

If we receive your photo and it does not meet our minimum requirements, your photo may not have enough pixels, which can cause grainy or pixelated photo cards. We recommend photos that are at least 300 pixels per inch to ensure the best printing results.

Find out if your photo meets the recommended size:

Step 1:
Find out the size of the photo that will be printed on your card.

Our 2 most common photo card sizes are:
  • 5 by 7 for most Save the Dates and Birth Announcements = photo needs to be 1500 by 2100 pixels
  • 4 by 6 for most Postcard Save the Dates and Thank You Card = photo needs to be 1200 by 1800 pixels

Step 2:
Find out the dimensions of the photo you want to use.

On a Mac:
Copy your photo to your desk
Right click on the image and select Get Info
You can find your dimensions here



On a PC:
Copy your photo to your desktop
Right click on the image and select Properties or Info
You can find the dimensions in the photo details



If your photo doesn’t have enough pixels, your printed photo card can look grainy or pixelated. Attempting to resize the photo could distort the quality of the image. To get the best printed photo cards, its important to use original and unedited photos.

To get your image to us, you can upload your image to the ‘MY ACCOUNT’ section, or email it to us at info@lovevsdesign.com. We can accept jpg, pdf, ai, psd, eps, png, gif, bmp, and tiff files. The maximum file size that we can accept is 10MB.

If you have any questions about your photo, please email customer service at info@lovevsdesign.com
