More than once we have heard from customers wishing that the site provided a sample of what the KidsTravelCard will look like with the photo, and we wish we could too! The problem comes down to the intricacies of programming and the changes we routinely make before printing a card. The biggest thing is that we almost always crop the picture and then do things like lighten the picture, adjusting the color if it needs balancing, or sharpening up a fuzzy image. Also, we sometimes need to make other changes, such as changing “and” to &, or moving the spacing around for the Vital Information field to make the words look better. Sometimes we have to fix simple mistakes, such as when people put in the year the picture was taken, rather than the age of the child.
Bottom line, we do everything we can to make the KidsTravelCards look as good as possible, so a preview would not be an accurate reflection of the final product. Every single badge is done by hand, and if we see something that looks like it might be an error, such as the wrong gender or an age that just doesn’t look right, we contact the customer before finishing the cards.
We never ignore customer wishes or try to be difficult, and truly appreciate questions. Hope this helps!
