Can I order photo prints in any quantity? E.g. one piece?

Photo prints can only be ordered as a package - the editor will remind you of the minimum order quantity (it ranges from 20 pcs for the smallest formats to 3 pcs for the largest format). Wall art prints or large photos can be ordered one piece at a time. Do not hesitate to order more, we believe there is no such thing as too many beautiful prints! You can find tips on what to create with them in our Magazine, e.g. here: https://www.squared.one/magazine/diy-heart-wallart.

How long does it take for the photos to be printed?

We produce photo prints within 48 hours (i.e. 2 working days). You can find a detailed production and delivery times list here.

Can I have several photo sizes printed at the same time?

You will need to order the minimum order quantity of each size. Do not worry though, there are never too many beautiful photos. In case you cannot decide what to do with your photos, you can follow this article for inspiration: https://www.squared.one/magazine/polaroid-photos.

Can I order photos without the polaroid frame border?

Yes, you can turn off the frame in the editor by clicking the “OFF” button next to “Frame borders” and the photos will come out without any border. With the retro photos (Retro Photo 4 x 3¼" and Retro Photo 5 x 4") the frame cannot be turned off. Do use it to add a nice caption though - the captions are on by default. You can add a few cool smileys or a text to remind you where the photo was taken. You can find inspiration on smileys here: https://www.squared.one/magazine/emoji-one.

Can I shrink the photo in the editor to fit the whole frame?

So far, our editor can only crop photos. Therefore, you must resize the photo in advance in a photo editing program, or choose a widescreen photo format.

What packaging will I receive my photos in?

We pack the photos into a design photo cover for you. If you want to purchase an album for your photos or you are planning to create a scrapbook from them, take a look at the accessories we offer in our e-shop: https://www.squared.one/eshop/albums-and-accessories.

I need more packages for my photos. Should I purchase them?

We put photos in design photo covers of about 50 pieces. So if you order, for example, 100 photos, you will receive your photos divided into two covers. You can also purchase photo albums from us on the eshop: https://www.squared.one/eshop/albums-and-accessories. Just select the type you need.

Can I insert smileys into my photos?

Smileys can be inserted into two sizes of retro prints (Retro Photo 4 x 3¼" and Retro Photo 5 x 4") from the keyboard of your mobile phone or your computer. If the emoticon does not display the way you need it, please choose another one. You can find inspiration on smileys here: https://www.squared.one/magazine/emoji-one.

I forgot to include one photo in my order. Can I add it?

Once the order is paid, we are unable to alter it. If you have not paid for the order yet, you can create your project again and add the photo.

You can also add captions to your photos and choose a background color.
