Include your logo . . .

If you would like to include your logo we would need a Jpeg, EPS or Tiff file; or we can also scan a printed letterhead or document if you do not have your logo on file. Please also include, if you know it, the Pantone colour reference or RGB values for your logo, or special colours.

Taking pictures . . .

Digital cameras are cheap and the basic models will do this job well, as the final image will be quite small or you can use a Mobile phone to take the pictures.  The medium or low setting on most cameras or phone cameras is good. Photographs or Passport photos from booths can also be used as we do not charge to scan a photograph.
Choose a room with as much natural light as possible, with your subject facing the light source. Position the subject against a white or neutral background and ensure that there are no wall charts, notices etc. on the walls that will show in the picture.

Pictures should be a jpeg file (.jpg or .jpeg) png or pdf, portrait format and ideally no larger than 200kB in size. Use a flash if you have one as this will give better results even in natural light. You should position yourself so you have a head and shoulder shot only in the viewfinder or screen. Ensure the subject looks slightly to the side and not directly into the camera lens.  We check and adjust every pictures to ensure it is suitable for the ID Card.
