Can you tell me more about Big Cards?

Frequently Asked Questions

* What size is a BIG Card?
8.2 x 11.5 inches

* How much does a BIG Card cost?
The points for a BIG Card is 15 points, postage depends on the current postage cost and where the card is being sent.

* How much does it cost to send a gift with a BIG Card?
There is an extra $1.00 charge for gifts sent with BIG Cards, with the exception of “Card Sized Gifts.” This extra charge is due to the increased box size.

* Can I only send certain cards in the Card Catalog?
You can choose any card in the Card Catalog to send as a BIG Card!

* Do I have the same card editing capabilities as I do with regular cards?
Absolutely! With BIG Cards you have the same templates, borders, elements and editing capabilities as you currently have with your PicturePLUS or Picture- PLUS 2.0 account.

* Why does the size of the BIG Card look the same as a regular-sized card in the Card Editor?
In the Card Editor, your BIG Card will appear the same size as a regular-sized card. An easy way to verify that you are creating a BIG Card is to click on “Print Preview,” which will show you a much larger version of the card than your normally would if it was a regular-sized card.

* What are the photo requirements for BIG Cards?
Our state of the art XeroxR iGen4T printers have a built-in technology that can double your image size without reducing the quality of your image. So, any im- age that is high enough quality for our standard greeting card will work for a BIG Card! To ensure high-quality photos on your cards, we recommend upload- ing photos with pixel sizes of at least 1500 x 2100. Most of today’s digital cam- eras (3.0 megapixels or more) will capture images at this resolution or higher.

* Can I use images obtained from the internet for my big cards?
As long as you have the proper license to use the image (check the copyright information for any image before downloading the image) and as long as the image is high enough quality. Most images on the internet are low-resolution, but sometimes a “large” or “high-resolution” version of an image is available. Stock image sites (like www.istockphoto.com) allow you to choose the size/res- olution of an image before purchasing and downloading the image. In this case make sure the image you are choosing is 1500 pixels X 2100 pixels or greater.

* What font sizes work the best on the BIG Cards?
The default font size is set to a 25-point font. Feel free to change this, however, SendOutCards recommends using fonts larger than 14-point to make sure the text is easy to read.

* Will BIG Cards take longer to deliver?
BIG Cards are sent via First Class Mail and should not take longer to deliver than a regular-sized card.

* Why is there a cardboard insert sent with each BIG Card?
A cardboard insert has been included in each envelope to prevent the BIG Cards from bending or folding.
