Please refer to this chart to determine the minimum image size you need to produce quality prints.

NOTE: If your photo doesn't meet these minimum image-size requirements, you'll see an orange triangle (Image) next to one or more print sizes in your cart. To avoid receiving a low-quality print, we recommend against ordering sizes marked with an orange triangle.
