How To Take a Good ID Photo

READ ME: Instructions

(Scroll to the Bottom For Example)

  • Stand in front of a white or light colored wall
  • Turn on ALL the lights on in the room
  • No Selfies
  • Have the camera close, no more than 4ft away from you
  • Mid chest and up (DO NOT send full length photos, get that camera nice and close to you!)
  • make sure your hair isn’t chopped off in the top of the photo
  • YES! A camera on your phone is just fine, please make sure the photo is not resized too small.  Perfect file size is ‘large’ or around 500kb-1.5mb
  • Signature: Sign a sheet of paper normally (approx 2 inches across) and take a photo of it. (we edit, size and position).  Use a fine tipped pen, no sharpie, no pencil.

This will eliminate 99% of the bad photos we receive. For a more detailed instruction see the infographic below (example at bottom of page):
