Large Format Prints

Ooo these are nice! What are the specs?

Our large format prints are printed on professional 250 gsm Kodak paper with a luster finish. Now you can even choose to have a small white border or print your images full bleed. And yes, you can order just one now 🙌

Can I use Instagram photos for the square sizes?

Sadly no, Instagram photos are just too small for even the smallest square size on these beauties. We tried it, the results were terrifying.

Alright fair enough, how large do my photos need to be for each size?

We've got you covered 😘

Woohoo! My favorite photo is large enough. Will it print well? 

Our processor blocks photos that are too small, but cannot see things like resolution or lighting. (It is a very farsighted robot). A good way to tell if your photo will print great on a larger scale is to check the resolution. We print at 300 dpi, you want to be as close to this as possible. If you are still nervous, you can perform what we call the "zoom test" on your image prior to upload. Open up your photo on your computer's photo viewer, and zoom in a little bit. If you are seeing pixelation when you zoom, this will also show up in print.

As a general rule, we recommend printing photos that are taken in natural light. Indoor photos at low light can look fuzzy. (Sorry bar selfies!) 

A Note on Cropping:

If you choose the full bleed option we really recommend keeping all subjects away from the edge of your crop. Our preview page does a great job, but the actual crop can be a tiny bit tighter. Please keep all heads and arms well inside the cropping area with a bit of breathing room for the best possible print.
