If the order is returned to us due to wrong or insufficient address, the customer is responsible for return shipping.
- How long will my product last?
Although each of our items are engineered to last for years to come, the life of your product will depend greatly on the specific item and the manner in which you use it after receiving it. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight and displaying our products indoors to ensure your images stay pristine for many years to come.
- How is image resolution measured?
PPI (Pixels Per Inch) measures the resolution of a digital image (on a computer, camera, or a mobile device). The higher the PPI, the higher the resolution of the image will be, and the clearer the image will appear when printed.
DPI (Dots Per Inch) measures the resolution of a printed image, and indicates the number of ink dots per inch within an image. We calibrate our professional printers with expert precision to ensure that high resolution images (125 PPI or higher) print beautifully.
- How do I hang my product?
Each of our product types (wood, metal, canvas, etc) have different hanging options available. All of our products that allow hanging come with the necessary default option included or installed. For those products where the hanging option comes included but not installed, all required hanging components will arrive with the product. For specific hanging options available per product please see the individual product pages.
- Do you offer gift certificates?
Absolutely! It's an E-Gift Card. We will e-mail you the information, gift code and personal message designed on a Picture It Custom certificate. You may choose to print out the image or merely e-mail the recipient. It's the fastest gift option available!
- Can I modify my products after receiving them?
Yes, although our items ship ready to display, if you want to modify or personalize your items further you are welcome to. However, If any modifications or adjustments are made to the product (intentional or otherwise) without the express permission of a Picture It Custom team member, then no replacements or refunds can be offered. If modifications are wanted, they must be approved in advance of the order being placed so accommodations can be made.

- What are some other elements that affect my image's resolution?
It's important to note that your printed image’s appearance in print may be affected by more than the number of pixels in the image:
Well-lit images will contain more visual detail than darker images (especially for photos taken on a phone).
Using a digital zoom feature will crop a portion of the image, and then enlarge it back to size. Image quality will be reduced relative to the original photo.
Increasing the size of an image will not increase its resolution accordingly. For instance, increasing the size of a photo 200% will cause the pixels within the image to become twice as large, resulting in a larger, but lower quality image.

Ideally, files should be JPG format, Adobe RGB color embedded, and 200-300 PPI at print size.

- Will the placement of my image be exactly like the preview?
When creating your custom prints we try to match the image preview as closely as possible, but due to the handcrafted nature of our products (and dealing with print bleeds) finished prints may not match the exact placement of the approved preview. This is most often noticeable when the custom design includes text or details close to the outside border of the print, or when needing an exact placement of a clock mechanism. If you have questions or concerns about a specific image and need exact placement please contact us prior to placing your order.
- Can I return my purchase?
We take great pride and care in building your custom prints. The photos that you upload allow us to see a glimpse of your world, and we share in the experiences and memories with you. We do not make any alterations to your custom uploads after you have submitted your order.
We print to order for all purchases, so unfortunately, we are unable to offer a refund or replacement for custom items since it is unique to you. We also cannot provide free reprints or refunds where the original image was not of sufficient quality.
We recommend taking your time to select the perfect print for your space - or feel free to ask us for advice if you would like a second opinion. We would love to help you.
If there was an error in production that we determine to be our fault, we will replace the item at no charge to you. Please reach out to us, within 30 days from the date you placed your order, at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help.
- Where do I ship my returned item?
