Adding a photo or logo to your business card on BusinessCardStar.com.
Check out the video below, or scroll down for the FAQ and instructions on adding images.
What kinds of files can I use?
You may use a .jpg, .gif, or .png file.
How large should my image be / what resolution is required?
The maximum file size is 3mb. To ensure proper resolution we recommend your image is 300dpi at the size you wish to use it on your card. A business card measures 3.5" x 2", so an square image of 600 x 600 pixels would be an appropriate size. An image that covered the entire card would need to be 1100 x 600 pixels.
How long will you keep my images in my library?
We keep images in the library for a few weeks. If you purchase your design (printed cards, printable PDFs, or high resolution artwork formats) then we will keep your images saved in the library for you so you can re-order cards.
If your image is deleted, you will simply need to re-upload it and add it to your saved project to purchase.
How many images can I use
You can use one photo or logo on the front and one on the back.
How much does it cost to add an image to my business card?
There is no additional charge for adding an image to orders of printed business cards or high-resolution artwork. Print-at-home PDFs with photos or logos cost $10 USD.
How do I upload and style my image on my card?
See the steps below. We have a photo upload video tutorial if you prefer.
