What are the minimum image sizes for each product?

They can be found below. With the minimum image size, you will still get a very high quality print. Submitting an image with the "Excellent" size will just ensure that pixellation is not visible to even the most discerning eye, from very close up. The recommended minimum PPI (pixels per inch) for print images is 150, but crystal clear images will be accepted at as little as 100 PPI. Please note that images that are below 150 PPI must pass increased scrutinization by our Quality Control Technicians to insure that any prints made from the image will be of good quality. As shown below, each product lists two standard pixel dimensions. The 'Recommended Minimum' resolution makes a 150PPI image and print, while the 'Excellent' dimensions would make a 300PPI image and print.
When you upload an image for print, the aspect ratio can match in either orientation; portrait or landscape as long as the minimum resolution size matches the aspect ratio and the actual artwork of the print matches the orientation of your deviation and is not rotated.

Note that resizing your image to a larger size will greatly reduce its quality. If you submit a source image that is of "Excellent" pixel size, yet has been greatly enlarged, the Quality Control Technician who reviews your image will most likely reject it based on low image quality.
