  • Traditional Print Photographs
    • subject's head & fur must be in focus
    • subject's face must not be obstructed (ie. hands over face)
    • images with creases, scratches & scuffs through subject cannot be accepted.
    • color is not an issue - while color is preferred, black & white photos & sepia tones are acceptable
    • Photos with hash shadows or unusually high contrast will not work for our process
    • Our best charms come from photos where the subject's head is the size of a quarter or larger
  • Digital Photographs
    • all above specifications apply
    • resolution must be 300dpi or higher
    • accepted file formats are .jpg & .bmp
Please do not send us an irreplaceable image.  While we make every effort to return your photograph to you in its original condition, accidents do happen and it would be unfortunate for your image to be damaged in the mail.  Please make a copy of your photograph for us to work from and we will return it to you with your order.
