Before You Begin

                                    Let's take a minute to review some information that will be especially beneficial to you
                                    and to the outcome of your first project with us.

 

                                    Digital images usually require some special consideration in the world of print.  Below is a
                                    detailed chart that you may want to refer to as it shows what image resolution will print
                                    the best result; feel free to download it or print it out so that you can keep it handy.
 
                                    First of all, understand what you see on your computer screen is not a good
                                    representation of what will be printed as the color settings vary from monitor to monitor.
                                    We would suggest to print out the image if you have a printer, but unfortunately settings
                                    vary from printer to printer as well. 

                                    Second, know that a higher resolution image will print a higher quality coaster.  To see
                                    the resolution of your image, right click on the image and click on “Properties”; the
                                    resulting pop-up window will display the size of the file in kilobytes.  Anything
                                    above 2 megapixels or 700 kilobytes will yield a good result (the higher the better). 

 

                                    Note – try to avoid using images someone has e mailed to you as many times the resolution
                                    of those files has been altered by the software used to send them.
