Design Your Own (DIY) Ideas & Help
Imagine it, and we'll bring it to life.
We want you to have a personalized favor just as special and unique as the guest of honor, regardless of the occassion or theme. Our designs were created to give you many choices in order to make it your very own, whether changing colors, fonts, or messaging. Despite the near-endless choices, we are happy to work with you to create a design that is 100% unique and imagined just by you. Following are some of the tools we offer to help you have a one-of-a-kind custom party favor, personalized chocolate candy bar, or DIY wedding favor.
With our easy-to-use online ordering, you will see a preview of your design before placing your order. This is your electronic proof. Even once you've checked off your approval of this proof, your order will receive the personal touch it deserves. Our expert graphic designers often fix incorrect punctuation, spelling and grammar, as well as resize fonts to ensure your order is flawless. Our dedicated design team will check to see that you’ve included all the essential information you may need. If we believe anything is questionable, we’ll contact you by phone or email to clarify.
We use state of the art digital printing equipment calibrated to the industry standard CMYK color model. The colors you see on your personal computer, smartphone, tablet, or other electronic device may not be an exact representation of the colors that will be printed. If an exact color match is important to you, you may provide specific Pantone or CMYK color values. Please Contact Us for more information about specific colors.
Regardless, you can be assured that your end product will give the quality, professional impression that you want to share for your occasion, with printing from our digital printer using the 4-color CMYK process, and our precision cutting equipment.
Photos and Images
SIZES: We accept most file types. Image sizes of 3" x 5" to 8" x 10" with a resolution of 150 – 300 dpi generally print well. For the best quality we suggest files with a size of 1MB or larger. Most photo programs allow you to right click an image to see the properties, like the image dimensions and file sizes. When sending images from your mobile device, send the largest file possible. Images retrieved from websites, such as Facebook, are often compressed and may be too small for a quality print. If necessary, our design team may request a new image to make your items look fabulous.
FILE FORMATS: Your artwork as a layered Illustrator file gives us the flexibility to make your item look amazing. We will also accept artwork created in programs such as Photoshop, Powerpoint, Publisher or most other formats.
RETOUCHING and EDITING: Perfect personalized items deserve perfect images. Our design team can often remove minor blemishes, red eye effects and backgrounds. We can also change color photos to black and white or sepia. Just ask!
ADDITIONAL HELP: If all that you have for your personalized favor is a photo print, no problem. Or, if all of this image speak sounds like a foreign language, no worries. Just contact us and we'll make this part easy for you to get the unique favors you want.
PERMISSIONS to REPRINT IMAGE: We accept your photo, image or artwork with the understanding that you have permission to use it. We're sorry, but we may have to refuse to print a licensed character. We will contact you if there is any concern over the rights to reprint your submitted image. We hold the necessary permissions to sell designs that we feature throughout our website.
