Design your album

You always deliver spreads, in one of the three dimensions. No separate pages or separate photos. A spread is two pages. You will deliver the spreads to us as a sequence of JPG files (no PDF). Your filenames should be in a ascending order  (album_01.jpg, album_02.jpg, album_03.jpg etc.). There are no half spreads in our lay-flat albums. The first and last spreads are a full spread.

Album Software

We recommend using album design software like Smart Albums or Fundy Designer to design your albums. These apps are great and easy to use tools to quickly design albums. You will also find our Dutch Ink Albums templates in these apps. If you use our templates you don’t have to worry that your files have the right dimensions for the best results.

Check

Double check your files before delivering them for print. Make sure your photos have been exported in the highest resolution, and your spreads are ready for print. We don’t sharpen or do color correction on your files. We print exactly what you give us. If you spot a mistake once you have already delivered your files to us, contact us as soon as possible, we might be able to reprint a spread before the album has been bound. If you want to change a spread after the album has been bound, there will be repair charge.

COVER TEMPLATES

If you order a photo album with a photo cover like the Mondriaan or the Avercamp albums, you will need one of our cover templates. To use the templates to design your photo cover, you will need Adobe Photoshop. Download the correct template file, open in Photoshop and design the cover as you want it. The red areas in the template are part of the fold over and will not be visible on the cover. So make sure there is no important content in this area. Be sure to stretch or mirror your photo in this area, for the best result. Export your cover as JPG file ie: Cover.jpg and deliver the cover file together with the rest of your spreads by making use of our WeTransfer with the correct order number.
