Why should i offer Photo-books to my clients?

Because the way your work is displayed. A high quality photo-book, beautifully designed and filled with awesome images, will always have a bigger impact than the images presented on the screen (especially if the screen is not calibrated).


Do you offer discounts for sample albums?

Yes, our different suppliers offer discounts and conditions vary from 20 to 40 %. (Except the inexpensive Saal books).
We ask you to put your studio logo and the word „Sample“ on one of your spreads in order to make sure that sample albums are just that: samples. They’re not to be sold to your clients, but to show your clients what their book will be like when they order.


Do you discount duplicate albums ?

No. If a client asked you to design two entirely different books, you would not offer a discount since you are doing the same amount of work twice. The amount of work and materials are identical no matter what the content is that get´s printed.


Are the spreads creased or split and cut?

We can’t stand to see a beautiful design cut straight down the middle, so all our books are creased. Most of the suppliers we team up with print on Fuji Crystal Archive paper. If you’re worried about pink/blue lines, Fuji is the best paper for this.  With that said, absolutely any kind of paper that is creased will show some wear… even split-spread books will wear in the crease because they’re made of paper too.

It is a good idea not to place a face (especially eyes) right in the gutter of the page!

If you are very particular about the crease, we recommend not designing over the crease – or only use lighter colors over the crease.


Do you provide color correction and retouching services?

We do not retouch or color correct any of the files provided. Please make sure you soft proof your book files. We print exactly what is submitted. We may catch a mistake by chance and notify you but it is YOUR responsibility to make sure your files are as they should be.
