How big should the image be?

In a word, HUGE. For best results, all uploaded images should be as big as possible. We use a hi-resolution print system that requires all images to be very large since the final result will be a great looking product with a crisp print. How big is big enough? The photo, logo, illustration or image should be at least ¾ the size of your computer screen when viewed at its actual size (assuming you have a fairly normal size screen, not a huge flat screen). Or if you know pixels: it should be at least 2400X800 @ 300 dpi (especially if you want the image to cover the opener completely). This is how we guarantee that your opener or business card will have the finest print quality available anywhere! Avoid using small images, such as photos taken with a camera phone or thumbnails from a website. If you upload images that are too small to be used, we will be obligated to contact you directly by phone to discuss redesigning your opener and your order will be SIGNIFICANTLY DELAYED, or even CANCELLED if we are unable to reach you.  

For Designers and digital illustrators:

If you know your way around any professional design program you should begin your new document as follows: a 7.25 inch X 1.75 inch (2176 X 529 pixels) @300DPI – CMYK. This will yield a rectangular template that will be fully compatible with our systems and will guarantee that you get exactly what you see on your screen. Don’t forget that there are 2 holes on the opener: the ring hole and the popper hole. The center of the opener is where all the significant information should be located, this are is W4.0XT1.5 inches. Feel free to Contact Us with any questions or to submit a design for production. We reserve the right to review any and all submitted work and decline to print or engage in business with anyone attempting to violate any of our terms or conditions. If you are not sure about what is right or wrong to print, please Contact Us with your questions and we will gladly try to assist.
