Design Tips:

To create small holes for fastening, adding jump rings, string, twine or ribbon, use a hole punch on the shrink film PRIOR to shrinking in the oven as the hole will shrink in size.

Your printed image will get darker after shrinking. To maintain bright and light colors, enhance the brightness of your image to at least 20% before printing.

General Tips:

Handle paper by the edges to avoid fingerprints

Wait 24 hours before placing photos in a frame

Always keep unused photo paper in its original packaging to avoid moisture in the air as well as damage that may be caused to the sheets if left out unattended

  • If there is more than one design, leave at least two inches between each cut out.
