Choose the right photo

Of course, a great save the date magnet starts with a fantastic photo. But there is more to it.

1. Pick a picture that's special to you and your partner

The picture you choose should be special to you and your partner, as it will remind you of this exciting time in your life. When selecting a photo, consider one that captures an unforgettable moment between you or reflects something unique about your relationship. It could be from an outdoor adventure, a romantic evening out, or just hanging out together at home – whatever makes this moment unique to you!

2. Ensure a simple motif

When selecting the photograph, ensure it has a simple, clear motif that will stand out on your magnet. For example, if you're choosing an outdoor shot with many background details, choose one focusing on you and your partner in the foreground. This will help ensure the image looks excellent when magnified.

3. Use a high-resolution image

Make sure the photo you choose has a high resolution. This will ensure the image looks great when printed on your magnet rather than blurry or pixelated. A photo is made from hundreds of dots, or pixels. The more pixels your photo has, the higher the resolution will be. We recommend opting for a minimum amount of dots per inch (DPI) of 300. If you're in doubt, send us the photo and we can check it for you.
