Celebrations

Guidelines for All Celebrations

Forms are available for all types of Celebration announcements, which may be picked up at our office, mailed or faxed to you or printed off our website. We can compose the announcement from the information on the form or you can write it yourself, and we'll cut, paste and check it for you. Forms may be submitted by fax or mail; scanned and emailed to us; or delivered in person. Contact information is on the front page of each form.


Suggestions

Engagements: Did you propose in a special or unique way? You can include that in your announcement.

Weddings: We can add descriptions of the bride's dress, bouquet, rings, bridesmaids attire, special reception details or anything unique about your celebration.

We also print Graduations, Adoptions, Bon Voyages, Retirements, and so on.

Photographs

For best reproduction, please submit professional black and white or color photographs, with sharp focus and good contrast. Light backgrounds tend to be better than dark backgrounds. Please write your name on the back.

Size can be between 2 inches wide by 2.5 inches deep, up to 8x10. Photos can be reduced more effectively than enlarged. The Post cannot be responsible for poor reproduction caused by soft-focus photos, instant photos, or poor focus.

We accept disks and emails, but please ensure minimum 200 dpi quality; a photo that looks OK on the Internet may not reproduce well in print.
