Top Tips for your Selfies

Please remember to:

  • Print the selfie sign off using colour ink
  • Write in large, clear writing so the writing is visible and legible
  • Make sure the person standing in the photo isn’t too far away from the camera so the writing can be read
  • Hold the selfie sign straight so the paper doesn’t crumple and the writing doesn’t become distorted
  • Be wary of the camera flash – this can sometimes reflect on the paper meaning that the writing will not be visible
