We make all of our custom made art work using the photo file that you include with your order. Although we are able to work with almost any photo, there are a few guidelines that ensure your final print will be the best it can be.
1. Image quality
For the best results and the most striking art work, we recommend that you use a bright clear image with the subject clear, unobstructed and it full view taken in conditions with plenty of light.
2. Make Sure Your Image Has Complete Subjects
We used the exact same photo you send us to create our work, so if you only send us an image with people cropped at the sides, unfortunately your artwork will be too and we won't have space to add watercolour around the edge. Please see the example below:
*Note - Our printing also has a bleed tolerance of around 5mm meaning your image may be slightly cropped from your preview.
3. Colourful Images
In our experience, the best prints are usually from photos with lots of colours either from the background, setting or from the clothing worn for the photo. Whilst we can always customise your art work and change colours for the look you are trying to achieve, we have found the most stunning results come from images with lots of colour!
