  • Set resolution to 72 dpi (dots per inch/ pixels per inch)
  • Set the width no greater than 800 pixels, and height no greater than 800 pixels (roughly 400 x 600 pixels is a good size to shoot for)

Now you’re ready to upload your images to BoardRecycler.com!


  • Deal locally with people you can meet in person.
  • Never wire funds via western union, moneygram, or any other wire service – anyone who asks you to do so is likely a scammer.
  • Fake cashier’s checks and money orders are common, and banks will cash them and then hold you responsible when the fake is discovered weeks later.
  • BoardRecycler.com is not involved in any transaction, and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, or offer “buyer protection” or “seller certification.”
  • Never give out financial info (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.)
  • Avoid deals involving shipping.
