„Die Albenmanufaktur“ offers 2 different album lines: Silverbook and Silverino. Solid German craftsmanship, many different cover-options, 9 working days until the book is shipped – combine that with a very attractive price and you have a winner. For projects with more than 30 spreads we always recommend the „Silverino“ – no other company offers a better price for prints on Fuji Crystal Archive Typ DP II paper!
Silverbooks mother company Tetenal´s history is going back over 160 years, making it one of the most experienced companies in the fields of photographic imaging technology. Silverbook is our second „send to print“ partner, registering an account on their website gives you access to their easy to use ordering system. At the end of the order process you simply upload your designed spreads and the cover image.
The easiest and fastest way to design your Silverino book is our album design software RAD. Design in minutes and send the layout to your customer, free album proofing included! In case you prefer another design solution you find all the measurements here.
You can choose between 85 color options, eight different cover materials and refine your album with lots of custom features. If these options overwhelm you we suggest that you pick a clean and classic style in your preferred material.
Let me walk you through the ordering process for the Silverbooks:
- You need to register on the „Albenmanufaktur“ website.
To speed up the process please make sure you fill in all the fields, even your international VAT number and/or business registration number.
If your company is based in the EU AND if you can present a valid international VAT number you should make sure that the number is filled in when registering as a customer. Please use the link provided to check that your number is valid! http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/
2-3 working days after you send the information you will receive a mail with your login details.
This gives you plenty of time to design your album spreads! We recommend our fast, easy to use album design software „Rapid Album Designer“ If you are new to RAD it is a good idea to watch the short video on this page. If this is the first time you use RAD we have a special offer for you: When the pages are ready send us a short mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your book-number which is easy to find when you are editing your album pages. We will then unlock your book and you get the Photoshop script for free. Photoshop will build a copy of your album with the original files within a few minutes!
The picture below shows you the album number and also our recommendation for the first and last spread… Because it is NOT possible to order end sheets for the Silverino books we strongly suggest to leave the left side of the FIRST spread and the right side of the LAST spread empty!
Now lets work on the cover… I personally like to combine a nice material with a picture as you see in the books on the top of the page. All you need to do in order to get a similar book is to look here and decide on size and orientation.
Choose your favorite option in the ordering system, prepare a picture with the correct size and save this picture as cover.jpg.
At the end of the ordering process you must send the cover.jpg as a zip/compressed file together with the rest of your images. You will get a mail with personal link to upload your file, it´s really simple.
So i just ordered a nice book 30×30, 25 spreads, Cowhide leather with a picture on the front, including a simple linen bag and I will pay in total 189,- Euros including shipping cost.
I consider this a real bargain!
