Our idea with spreadbook is to give you the option to order your books from a range of different manufacturers and even offer the same design in different sizes from different suppliers. Some basic rules make this hassle free and are true for all manufacturers we team up with.
1.) Do not sharpen your images intended to be used in traditionally developed Photo-books!
The developing machines are tuned in to produce crisp pictures and it is very easy that you over-sharpen your pictures. This is an essential rule that applies to all suppliers of traditionally developed books and is especially true for pictures taken with high ISO.
2.) Safety margin- a good rule is to go all the way or stay inside.
Stroked images near the safety margin are design killers. Avoid them at all costs. More information
