    PRODUCTS AND PHOTOS

    Q. How accurate is the preview of my product on the website?

    A. While we try our best to match the preview as shown on the website, different monitor and brightness settings can change the perception of the colour. 

    Q. Is it possible to make the font size larger than it appears in the preview?

    A. The font size is predetermined by the amount of text provided within the personalisation. Due to our automated system, we are unable to make this font size larger and it will be printed to fit within your chosen product. Rest assured; we have made sure the font is legible as per our quality standards.

    Q. I have received my product and the spelling is incorrect. Can this be fixed?

    A. Your order is created as per the specifications provided to us. There are so many kinds of spelling variations for names, it is impossible for us to know if the personalisation provided to us is correct. We cannot provide a refund or replacement if the spelling was provided to us incorrectly. To avoid disappointment, please kindly double check before submitting your order and be sure to review your confirmation. If there is a fault made in relation to any part of the personalisation that was made in error by Popic, a replacement will be honoured.

    Q. What kind of images can I upload?

    A. You can access photos from your devices photo gallery that is using Popic. If you would like to access any photos on social sites such as Facebook or Instagram we recommend you login to your nominated social account and access these photos and save them out on the device’s photo gallery you are ordering from.

    Pro Tips: Try using clear images with clean backgrounds so the focus is on the actual person or image and avoid dark backgrounds and photos with a lot going on. Also avoid blurry, heavily filtered unfocused photos.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: We ask when you are choosing your photos please avoid using anything that may be deemed as offensive such as those of a pornographic, sexually explicit nature or any references of a criminal nature. Popic reserves the right to cancel these orders and they will not be processed.

    Q. What size and shape should my images be?

    A. Try and use images that are best cropped to a square as most of our products are best suited to this format. The images you upload for most products should be minimum 800px and under 5MB. For Popic posters the minimum requirement is 1000px.

    Q. How do I know if my image will be look good when printed?

    A. We understand it can be challenging to determine how well a photo will be printed by looking at it on screen. Screen resolution is very different from high res print resolution, so there are some essential things to check when choosing the very best photos for your personalised products. We have provided a photo quality guide HERE to be sure you create the very best quality product!

    Q. Can I use special characters?

    A. We are not currently able to print special characters. We can only print English characters on your personalised product.

    Q. Can I use emojis?

    A. We are not currently able to print emoji's. Even though your preview will show your emoji on-screen, it will not replicate accurately when your file is taken into production and will not print.

    A. Does the Popic Pop come ready to pop?

    Q. Yes, so do not open it! Unless you want it to pop! The Popic pop is ready to pop. Your Popic pop is delivered with a shipping label on, which you can open. Inside, there is a cleverly crafted outer mailing envelope. Do not open that! That is how you should give the surprise to the recipient.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: The way that this product works is based on the element of surprise used with a popping effect once the product is opened. We trust that the recipient you choose to receive this product can handle this effect and we will leave this judgement solely with the person responsible for the order placement.

    Q. How does the Popic Pop work?

    A. Shhhh it’s a secret! Nah totally fine to tell you. Our Popic Pops are powered by some clever ingenuity and a cheeky little rubber band. They are not powered by anything electrical, not even batteries. Super clever huh?

    Q. Will my Popic Pop contents always be the colour as described?

    A. Although we will try our best to provide your Popic pop with the colour of confetti as per the product description please note that contents may vary from time to time depending on stock availability. No matter what we will make it an epic Popic.
