Custom Photo Requirements

Our quality keepsakes are personal to each individual and contain their own story and values and with this in mind, we want every part of your keepsake to be perfect for you.  That is why we are offering our advice regarding photo quality to help guide and to ensure that your purchases are as perfect as they can possibly be.

 

Our service

We can accept all photos, old and new, however the quality outcome of your purchase will depend on the quality of the photo we receive.  To ensure the best outcome of your photo keepsake, we would recommend uploading photos which:

  • Do not have glare or are pixellated
  • Are clear and fully focused. 
  • High resolution if possible 600 dpi or larger.
  • Are not too dark or too light as this can hinder the finer details of the photo.
If you have an old photograph or are unsure how to edit images yourself, we can often use our specialised software to help enhance photos for you in preparation for processing and we will advise if this is necessary after we have received your images.   If you would like further information, please feel free to contact us where we will be happy to offer help and support.

A GUIDE TO THE PERFECT NECKLACE LENGTH FOR YOU

 This is a simple guide to show various necklace lengths based on the average neck size  To obtain the same look and position of your necklace on the neck, please take into consideration to increase the length for larger neck sizes and reduce the length for smaller neck sizes.

HOW TO MEASURE THE NECK TO FIT A CHAIN

Place a thin strip of paper or flexible tape measure around your neck and start the paper where you would like your necklace to sit.  Join the paper or tape till it meets the start point and then place a small mark on the paper, or simply hold the tape in-between your fingers at the meet point.  If using paper, you can then lie the paper flat and measure, or if using a tape measure you will immediately see the result in cm or inches at the point in-between your fingers.  Doing it this way will gauge a better result to the correct necklace length for you.  Take into consideration any pendants or charms that will be part of the necklace.  Lengths on products are normally for the chain only.  Necklaces may sit slightly lower if a pendant/charm is included. 

   

 

 MEASURING YOUR WRIST TO FIT A BRACELET

Wrap a tape measure around the wrist on which you plan to wear your bracelet. Make a note of the number at the point where the tape meets the 0. To ensure the bracelet fits comfortably, add 1.5 cm. You can then add or subtract centimeters according to whether you prefer a loose, exact or tight fit.  If you don;t have a flexible material or paper tape measure to hand, simply wrap a strip of paper around your wrist and mark off the paper where the beginning of the paper strip meets.  Then use a tape measure to measure the length in cm or inches (whichever your prefer to use)  Please allow approx 1.5cm extra if you prefer a loose fit.

MEASURING YOUR HAND TO FIT A BANGLE

Begin by folding your thumb across your hand as far as comfortably possible.  Then with your other hand take a flexible tape measure or slim piece of paper and wrap around the widest point of you folded hand.  This will allow the bangle to slide on comfortably and sit on the wrist without falling off once your hand is open again.  Hold the paper or measuring tape at the point the tape or paper meets from the start point.  If using paper, mark off with a pen and then measure.  If using a measuring tape, hold in-between your fingers where the tape meets the start point and you will see instant results in cm or inches.  If adding extra length for comfort, we would advise not too add too much length as this could result in the bangle becoming too large and could easily slip off the wrist.
