Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I choose a photo book Design Service?

A photo book is a story. Your story. It is an important story to tell and doing it well takes time and story-telling skill. Many people don´t have the time it takes to create a high quality book, and even of those that do, the majority lack the true ability to tell the story well. Our design service is ideal for people who want a professionally designed product but who either don´t have the time or the skills to create one by them self. We all love eating good food but aren´t necessarily the best cooks!

Browse the GET INSPIRED section for some excellent samples that have been created by the design service.

Designing a classy photo book requires more than just time. It requires skill in album layout, optimization of your photos, background selection, photo selection, color balancing and most importantly story telling.

We want you to enjoy taking pictures and let our experienced designers create an emotionally compelling photo book for you. All you have to do is choose a design style and our designers will work with you in creating your master piece. The best part of our service is that you are always in control: you get to review the photo book online and provide us feedback to make changes.

How much extra does the Design Service cost?

The design fee is $10 for the first 26 pages and $2.50 for each set of extra 8 pages. 26 is the minimum amount of pages for each photo book and additional pages always come in increments of 8.

The design cost is a flat fee per page, no matter how many photos you would like us to include in the photo book or what size of photo book you choose. All design changes are included as well.
The design fees are added to the price of printing the photo book. If you order several copies of the photo book you pay for the design only once.
If you value an expert´s skill in designing artistic photo books and you would like to save time, we are the best service available in the market.


 

What if I don't like the design?

After the designer completes the book, you will be able to review it online. During your review, if you feel that the design of the book is not what you want, you can easily provide comments through the online tool in a very simple and straight forward manner. Your comments will be reviewed by your designer, who will then modify your book accordingly. Within 3 working days, you will be able to review the modified design online.

How long does the process take?

Within 3 business days of sending us your photos, your customized photo book will be ready for your online review and feedback.

Once you approve the final photo book, you will receive it in 8-10 days (we need time for printing and shipping).

How do I make sure my designer uses the Design I like best?

We have a unique and compelling "Style Board process" wherein you choose a design style that best fits the story you want told. Our master photo book designer will take your inputs as inspiration and create a completely unique photo book, customized just for you. We have 6 primary design styles and many moods within each style.

Do I get to review my Photo book and make changes?

Absolutely! Our philosophy is to work with you in telling your story. We will design the photo book and show it you online.

You can then provide comments and feedback to make changes. You are always in control of the final product.

I have hundreds of digital photos, can you help me select the best photos? How would you choose for me?

Our designers have told hundreds of stories. You simply need to tell us just a little bit about your story. Our experienced designers and story tellers have been specially trained to choose the best photos. We focus on creating a storyline that seamlessly flows from the first to last page while capturing the best emotions. Some of the selection criteria we use are:

* Emotions expressed in the photo; we like to see shining happy people
* We choose photos that best fit the story board. Every page that you turn has to make sense, like the scenes in a movie
* We don't use duplicates unless we can tell a motion story
* The quality of photo (brightness, focus, shadow detail etc)

Again, the best part is you are always in control. You will get a chance to review our selections and make changes if needed.

Can I provide captions for the various pages? If yes, when do I do this?

Yes, you can provide captions and notes for the pages in your photo book. When we have finished the first design draft for your review online, you can enter your personalized text for each page. We will lay it out with a font that matches the design spirit.

Can I order multiple copies of my Photo book? How?

After we have designed your Photo book, you get a chance to review the photo book online. At that time, you can order multiple copies. We assure you that the finished photo book will be a beautiful representation of your story and you will be able to buy as many copies of the book as you like. They will make great gifts. And you only pay for the design fee once.

What if I forgot to upload some photos and need to add them later?

Sorry, once the design process begins, we are not able to accept additional photos. Should you really want to add photos, you will have to cancel the order and start over insuring that all the photos you need are uploaded in the beginning. The best way to prevent this is to think about which images will make the best story and insure that you include them during the upload process.

Can I upload additional photos after I review the first version of the design?

Before designing your Photo book, we design from the photos you provide. So every picture is part of a sequence. At this time we are not able to accept additional photos once the design process begins.

How much time do I have to review the book?

You will receive an email once the book has been designed and placed online. You will then have seven days to review the book. We want you to review the book when the idea for the story is fresh in your mind. Therefore, we encourage all our customers to review their book as soon as it is finished by our designers.

How many revisions can I have on the design?

Over 95% of our customers are ecstatic about the results after the first design iteration and simply add captions and purchase. In the event you would like to iterate on the design, we will be more than happy to work with you to get the book right. Our designers will redesign your book on the basis of the feedback and comments provided by you. However, after thousands of books, our experience tells us that if we are not able to match your expectation in 3 design iterations, then we are not the best service for your photo book design. You can cancel your order at any time.

How long does it take to receive the book once I check out?

Once you have approved the design of the photo book and have checked-out online, the book is sent to the printer. You will then receive it 8-10 days later.

Once I have submitted a redesign request, can I edit or add my comments?

No, once you have submitted the book for redesign, you cannot give anymore comments for that version of the book. However, you will be given a chance to make additional comments once the redesign comes back.

Can I change the number of pages or photos in the book?

You can easily reduce the number of pages during the review process. You can also easily modify the length of the book by requesting changes to the number of images used per page. For instance, two images per page with 100 images equals a fifty page book. With the same number of photos, you can request four images per page to be used and reduce the book to the lower limit of 26 pages. If you have provided a lot of photos and there are many left over not used in the design, then you can simply request the designer to add more photos and this will lengthen the book. The best books are usually about 45 pages in length but you are ultimately in control as long as the book contains the minimum of 26 pages.

Can I get several copies of the same book shipped to different addresses?

No. At present, all your photo books will be sent to the shipping address, which you provide at the time of checkout.

Can I have the same book printed in different sizes or with different covers?

No, sorry, we do not have this feature.

Can I share the final digital design on Facebook with my friends?

Yes, this is possible. Once you have purchased your book you will be able to share it.

Can I upload pictures from my Picasa account or my Flickr account?

In the order process, you can upload photos from your Picasa webalbums. We are in the process of providing this functionality for Flickr and other social media sites. Register with us and we will keep you updated about the new features we add.

Where do I enter my discount code?

You can enter the discount when you are selecting the type and size of photo book or in the shopping cart at the time of checkout.

How do I cancel my order? How long to I have to cancel?

You can cancel your order at anytime up to the time you check out and pay with your credit card. If you have problems with the book after it is received, simply contact our customer service department. Your complete satisfaction is very important to us.

What if I have a unique event and can´t find a Style design that fits?

In our Events and Category selections, we have covered the most popular events such as vacations, weddings, birthdays, etc. However, if you do not find a Style and Mood that matches your event, you can simply do the following:

1) choose one that is the closest match, or even the other category, and something matching your event,

2) then provide as much detail as you can in the special instructions section.

This will help us make your photo book design very specific to your event. And remember, you will always be able to provide comments during the review process and request changes.

Not all of my digital photos are in the JPEG format, what do I do?

You can only upload JPEG formatted images in our service. You can convert other file formats to JPEG quite easily through any number of tools. Your best bet is to research the methods available on the web.

How big a file can I upload? Can the files be any size?

The JPEG files you upload must be at least 100KB in size and can not exceed 7MB.

I could not upload images due to some technical issue, what do I do?

Please try again. If you have tried several times and the uploading process isn’t working then the issue is most likely with your machine or your internet connection. You can contact our customer service team at any time with questions as well.

How do I find out the status of my order?

Simply log-in to your account to check your order status.

Can I order additional copies of the book after I have checked out?

Yes. You can order additional copies at any time, but you will need your original order ID.
