Our system accepts the most common image formats: .jpg, jpeg, png, tiff. For best results the image should be sRGB colour format ( which is standard for all digital photography cameras )
There is no need to adjust the print size before uploading as our system will automatically crop and render each image at the correct resolution for printing at 300dpi. Do pay attention to the online preview when ordering, if your image is a different image ratio than 2:3 it will crop the image.
Photos directly from your camera or smartphone will have the best resolution, If you copy photos from social media the photos have been compressed and normally have poor resolution. We always advise to start with the original images to be sure. Even older generation smartphones can produce high enough quality images for our larger print sizes. It is normally the amount of light when the photo is taken that affects the quality of the photo more.
For the best results we suggest using bright well lit or exterior, day time images that have a high contrast range.
All printed photos will look darker than they appear on a computer or phone screen due to the backlight of the digital screen. This is the same for printing on wood, so we suggest reducing the brightness of your screen to 50% for a more accurate representation of what you photos would look like when printed.
When printing on wood, white or very light parts of the image will fade/lighten and show the natural beautiful colour of the wood surface ( This does not include Bright white Plywood Prints). Our preview gives a good understanding of the final result but be prepared that lighter areas will be even lighter on the final product. This also applies to dark areas in your image. They will make images appear slightly darker than the preview.
Wood as a material differs to traditional paper. The surface of the wood is natural and has different tones due to the natural wood grain. Every piece of wood is unique making every print different. Depending on your image, a certain amount of wood grain will be visible on your final print.
The ink we use has a semi-matt finish. Darker areas will have more shine on them due to larger amount of ink used. Light areas will appear more matt.
