Frequently Asked Questions About Our Photo Throw

Will the picture fade with washing?

Each throw is processed and inspected before shipping. The image will not fade or wash off. It is not printed. It is knitted fabric.

What are the care instructions?

Machine wash in cold water. No Bleach. Air dry, gentle cycle.

How do I choose the best photo?

Almost any photo or flat artwork can be made into a PhotoThrow. However the best results will come from a photo that is clear, has good contrast, or was done by a professional photographer. The better the photo-the better the image on the PhotoThrow.

Does it come in color?

Knitting technology only allows a maximum of 4 colors on "The Original" Photo Throw, and we have found that black and white looks best with light and dark gray.

Our ColorThrow does come in color.

When I hold my Color Throw up, it does not look like my photo. Why is this?

Color Photo Throws must be viewed from across the room. Have someone hold the throw up and stand back 10 feet and you will be able to see a knitted depiction of your photo.

Can I send a color picture?

Any picture, color or black and white can be used. Size should be limited to a maximum of 8" x 11".

Can my photo be cropped?

Yes. We can crop your photograph when required or requested. We will crop your photo to focus on the main subject and leave out less important areas. By doing so, you receive a better product.

How do I email the file? Image type? Quality?

Scan pictures at 300 dpi. Save file as jpg with minimal compression. These work best. After placing your order, simply e'mail the image to info@FireAwards and be sure to include your name.

Can I print the picture and then mail it to you?

Most printouts do not produce quality results. We prefer you email the digital file instead.

How long does it take to make?

Depending on the season, it normally takes 10 days from the day we receive your photo.
