- Additional Information
Prepare your files in RGB color mode, 300dpi resolutions. Save your files in JPEG format. Our albums are flush mounted so you need to count the left and right sides (pages) as one single spread file.
Name your album spread files as 00 cover, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06 ...... 10, 11, 12 .... etc.
Album Cover File
For Glass photo album cover, you need to give 0.2" bleed on each side. Avoid putting important elements such as text, a person's head, hands too close to the edge or it could be trimmed. These important elements should be designed 0.5" within your album cover size. For example, if your photo album cover size is 10"x10", the overall image layout should be 10.4"x10.4". The safe zone for these elements should be within 9"x9".
Inside Page File (1 spread = 2 sides/ 2 pages)
An album size is indicated by the album cover, not by the inside pages. Therefore, the inside panoramic spreads are 0.25" smaller than the album cover on all edges. For example, a 10x10 album opens in 20x10. The inside page spread size is 19.5x9.5. When designing an inside page for a 10x10 album, the file size should be 20x10, the spread would be trimmed to 19.5x9.5. The safe zone is 19.25x9.25 and all important elements like text, hears, hands, etc. should be kept within to avoid being trimmed off.
