Submitting Photos and Information:

  • PHOTOS: When uploading images for production, the higher the resolution, the better the end product will be. Images that are taken from social media or the internet are typically low resolution and are not meant to be used for high-quality large format printing. Depending on the size, WE RECOMMEND SCANNING PHOTOS IN AT 600 DPI FOR A 3"X5" PHOTO. For smaller photos, increase the resolution. 300 dpi will do for larger photos. REMEMBER: Higher resolution is always your friend when it come to banner printing. Don't just accept the default on your scanner if possible.

  • INFORMATION: Information such as years of service, branch of service, wars fought in, and any special awards (ie: purple heart, bronze star) should be submitted. We have to limit the amount of awards listed due to space limitations on the banners. We can also add the date of birth and date of death if applicable.  Go to menu item ' Submit / Banner Info ' to upload your photo and information.
