- To add a photo, scroll down to the area labeled "photo options" and select the photo option you’d like to use.

- Click open.
- Once uploaded, the file will appear as a thumbnail.
-Is it at least 1MB to 2MB (megabyte, not kilobyte) in size?
- If you open up your photo on your computer monitor, does it take up most if not all of your screen?
If the answer to both of these question is yes, it’s quite likely that the file will suffice for print.
Photos for covers: For cover photos (like our "Create Your Own" or "Life in Little Squares" design), the full file should be sized as follows:
7x9 Cover: 7 inches by 9 inches (2100 pixels x 2700 pixels).
8.5x11 Cover: 8.8 inches by 11.6 inches (2640 pixels by 3480 pixels).
Designer tip: We want your order to be perfect. Our designers recommend keeping any important art/image elements out of the bleed/trim area to avoid having them cut off.
7x9: After printing and trimming, your final print (before lamination) will be approximately 6.75 inches x 8.75 inches (2025 pixels x 2625 pixels).
8x11: After printing and trimming, your final print (before lamination) will be approximately 8.5 inches x 11 inches (2550 pixels x 3300 pixels).

At ErinCondren.com (“EC”), our customers' privacy and security is our top priority. We take any and all security concerns seriously and investigate each one individually. We continually revamp all of our systems and security processes to ensure state of the art security and monitoring based on the latest technology available. We use industry leading platforms, including Amazon Web Services for website hosting, Error! Hyperlink reference not valid. and PayPal for payment processing, and Alert Logic for network and traffic monitoring. We periodically regenerate all client-side SSL certificates which employ the latest encryption algorithms.
We have performed multiple full-site security audits through external security experts including Trustwave and StratumPoint. There were no issues found related to payment processing or customer data. We have also done thorough reviews of all internal and external payment processes and have found no system or process issues. Our process leverages our trusted payment gateway partner, Authorize.net, to process all credit card transactions. When credit card information is entered on our payments page it is passed directly to Authorize.net through SSL encryption standards, and remains encrypted at all times. At no time do we have direct access to payment information and we do not store ANY customer credit card information on our servers or on any EC databases.
We are committed to continuing to improve the customer experience and protecting customer's privacy. Please let us know if you have any further concerns.
All personalized orders are final and not eligible for a return or refund unless there is a valid quality control issue or printing error. Please contact customer service to remedy this.
Variations can occur during the printing process. These characteristics do not affect the usability of an Erin Condren product and are not considered damaged. Printing is more of an art than a science and these unpreventable and minor variations lend themselves to the personality of each unique product.
If your order is damaged from shipping or may have an error, please contact us within 10 days of delivery. Depending on the damage, damaged items may be reprinted or replaced with the exact same style item.

If you are requesting a refund and your order was placed more than 30 days ago, we are only able to provide you with credit to erincondren.com.
