A closeup of a single subject or small group works best. Use a high resolution image, at least 200 dpi resolution. a 300 dpi image is best. You can add colorful bordes or text to your stamp. Make sure you are the owner of the image you are using and that your image is in good taste. Pictures that are considered inappropriate will be rejected.
