Option 1: Print Locket Photos at Home, DIY
- Open the locket and use a pair of tweezers to remove the clear plastic insert from one side of the locket. The plastic is firm, and should pop out easily. (Make sure to keep the plastic cover because you will use it to hold your photo in place.)
- Select & print your photo. Create a photo template. Hint: we recommend using Locket Studio's quick and easy photo sizer here: Locket Studio. For the Le Serey Oval locket, choose the 14mm width. Make sure to keep the subject's face in the the center of your template. For best results, use photo paper, not regular copy paper, to print your selected picture.
- Place the plastic insert over your photograph and trace around the template. Make sure to center the person's face to the template as you trace around the photo area.
- Carefully trim your photo to shape and place it inside the locket. Replace the plastic insert on top of the photo. Note: it should snap into place on its own, or you can use tweezers to make sure the four small tabs on the plastic insert are securely inside the locket. This is an important step to ensure your photo stays in place!
- Repeat these steps to add a photo to the other side of your locket.
