The steps are simple:
1. Find a great quality photo of the happy couple.
2. Make sure the size is appropriate (or resize to fit).
3. Upload your photo, choose the rate, size and quantity.
4. Enter your credit card and delivery information.
5. Your stamps will be delivered to you in about 5 to 7 days.
The sites listed below give you the recommended size for your photo based on the size stamp you choose.
Tip! If your image is smaller than the sizes, you’ll have extra white space around the photo. If your image is bigger than the maximum sizes, it will automatically be scaled down to the maximum size. So, it’s actually better to have it 2 or 3 times bigger than the maximum as the image will be printed at a higher resolution than the standard.
