Printing Process:
We use a high quality printing process which results in beautiful prints, but the appearance of your calendar relies heavily on the quality of the original photos. If you are using digital photos, they should be about 1600 x 1200 pixels for our large calendar, 800 x 600 for our small calendar, and 640 x 480 for our desktop calendar. You should also try to take digital photos at the highest quality available on your camera. You can also mail a CD with your digital photos on them if you are unable to upload or email them. Of course we recommend you upload the photos directly through our site. If you are mailing photos to us for scanning, you should send 4x6 or 5x7 photos. These photos will be returned with your order unharmed.
Shipping:
If you require your order by a specific date, it is recommended you choose priority mail or FedEx for your shipping option. Shipping times by standard mail vary widely, so we can not guarantee delivery dates. It is recommended that ALL Christmas related orders are shipped by priority mail or FedEx (depending on how fast you need to receive the order).
