HOW TO FIND AND PREVIEW A CARD
Find a Card
There are 4 ways to look for a card:
1. Click on the dropdowns in the card
These are dropdown lists showing types of occasions and recipients you may be
looking for. For example, for a friend's birthday you would choose Birthday.
2. Enter a keyword in the Search box
This is useful for searching for specific things you'd like to see on the card.
For example, enter "football" if you want to see all the cards with
footballs on them. You can enter more than one word, however entering
"dad" and "football" would give search results of all the
cards for dads plus all the cards showing footballs.
3. Use the left hand navigation menu

HOW DO I PERSONALISE A MUG?

• Add personal text, an image or a logo
to your photo mug
• Order as many mugs as you’d like
Choose from three different photo arrangements: centred, in a collage or
wrapped around the mug.
I’M HAVING PROBLEMS ADING PHOTOS
Our service works best with photos and images saved as .jpg files. You
might be able to add other file types, such as .png, .bmp and .gif, but we
recommend using .jpg for the best results.
In order to produce the best quality photo cards we suggest your photos
should be at least 300dpi in resolution. Cards that feature larger photo areas
require larger sized photos to achieve the best results. When personalising a
photo card you’ll be advised if your chosen photo does not meet the minimum
recommended dimensions. You can choose to ignore this advice, but please note
your finished product quality could suffer as a result.
