Please note that the responsibility of any uploaded photo/s lies with the customer. The customer must approve their card via a checklist before they can proceed to checkout. Sleepymoon Cards does not contact a customer regarding the quality of their photo; this is solely the customer’s responsibility. Sleepymoon Cards takes responsibility for the print of their design not the customer’s photo.

Sleepymoon Cards does not take responsibility for any mistakes with spelling, dates or any other information that has been edited by the customer. If you approve a proof that has missing or wrong information, capitalisation or spelling mistakes or typos, we will not provide a refund.

Photo Submission

Please note that Sleepymoon Cards does not take responsibility for the quality of a customer’s photo/s. Whilst we can change certain qualities of the photo such as red eye we cannot change the quality of a photo.

What photo formats do you accept?

We accept the following formats for any uploaded photo: JPG, GIF or PNG.

How do I upload my photo onto a card design?

Click on the upload photo tab, then the choose file tab to locate files stored on your computer. Click on the file you would like to upload. Uploading times vary according to broadband speed and the size of the file.

How do I swap or delete a photo?

Please note you will have a photo library where you can store or delete photos as you like.

Can I use a photo taken on my mobile phone?

Mobile phone photography can be very hit and miss and we would recommend using a digital camera to take the shot for a better quality result.

What size file do you accept?

Our system accepts any photo size over 500KB and up to 10MB. The system doesn’t allow any photo with a size less than 500KB as the quality of the print would be too poor. When uploading a photo, our system will tell you if the photo size is too small so please try an alternative photo.

What kind of picture resolution is required?

Always select the highest resolution and largest file that your camera will support. The uploaded photo needs to be have a resolution of no less than 300dpi. Photos taken in low resolution on the camera means there are fewer pixels per inch (less photo per inch). Whilst you may not be able to tell looking at the photo on your computer, it will be printed with fewer pixels (or photo) per inch and the output will be very noticeable and fuzzy.

How can I tell what size and type my photo is?

*Using Windows: Right click on the file and go to properties. Next, a window will open with two tabs at the top ‘general’ and ‘summary’. The ‘general’ tab is displayed and you can view what type of file the photo is.
*Using Mac OS: Click and highlight the photo file. Go to ‘file’ at the top of your screen and go down to ‘get info’. Once you have clicked on that, a box will appear with all the details of the photo. Look under ‘more info’ for dimensions (which should be in the range of 1500 x 2100 pixels).

Can I send you the photos that I want to use with my card via mail?


No, unfortunately we do not accept physical photos – only the digital version.

Guidelines & Personalising Your Card

How do I personalise my chosen card?


Please click on our help video found on every card personalisation page for a full guide to personalising your cards.

How do I make sure that my photo will print well?


Firstly, make sure that the photo you select is not too small a file size for the card you choose as it can result in a grainy or pixilated final product. Trying to resize the photo may distort the image quality. Since the overall appearance of your card is highly dependent on the quality of your photographs, it is important to use clear, original and unedited photos. If you have a larger version of a photo, or if you have another snapshot that would be more suitable, please use that photo instead. We recommend photo file sizes between 500KB and 10MB.

Why is my photo taking time to upload?


Possible reasons for a slow upload could be the file size of your photo may be too large, your broadband speed too slow or you need to update your browser. Please see below in our technical section what browsers and operating systems we support.

How do I insert Fada’s?

*Please note that some of our ‘script like’ fonts are not compatible with fadas. If you are getting a question mark instead of a fada please email us and we will email you a proof after your order has been placed.

Inserting fada’s using Internet Explorer on a PC:
Hold down the ALT and Gr keys together and then press the letter you want. If that doesn’t work for you make sure you have the correct language set in your operating system by clicking on Windows: Control Panel -> Regional and Language Settings/Options.

Inserting fada’s using Safari, Chrome or Firefox on a MAC:
Hold down the ALT key and then press the letter you want.
