Studio logo embossing
To avoid the studio embossing surcharge we suggest adding your full colour logo to the first or last double page album spread instead. If you do want to emboss your studio logo, and you have not done this before, please remember to order a Studio Embossing Die. There is a once off cost involved in this and then small cost each time you emboss your logo on a product.
Protect your album pages by adding our Luxe Laminate to each double page spread. Luxe laminate involves us coating each double page spread with a protective laminate that has a soft velvet feel.

Creating a Seldex album is easy! Whether you're new to designing layouts or are a seasoned professional, we're here to help you every step of the way.
You cannot design your albums directly on our website as we do not have our own designated album design software, but we do provide recommendations for programs that we love.
Alternatively, we do offer an album design service that you can take advantage of.
For information on the Seldex design service or design software options available check out our Album Design web page.
Before you upload your files please be sure to read carefully through the album section on our File Preparation web page. This will give you important information on how to properly prepare your files for printing.
If you haven't printed with us before then we highly recommend you order free test prints from us. Click here to order them today!
You will need to upload your album files to these specifications -
Files: Double page spreads
File format: JPEG
Colour space: ADOBE RGB (1998) or sRGB
Pixels per inch: 300dpi
It is very important that your album layouts are correctly named to ensure they are mounted in the correct order. For example 001, 002, 003 etc. Most album design programs will export your files with the correct file names but it is a good idea to check these before uploading. Please do not add any characters to your files names such as *, /, \, @, etc.
You will need to use our Photoshop templates to create specific items for your album.

Ever heard the saying "you can't sell a secret"? You need to show what you want to sell and the best way to do this is to invest in sample products so your clients can touch and feel the quality of your albums. We understand this can be an expensive process and therefore offer a 30% discount on any album purchased for your studio display. This applies to a maximum of 3 albums per year and each album is branded with STUDIO SAMPLE. Studio sample albums ARE NOT for resale to customers.
Display albums are your choice - you choose the size, number of pages, cover material and options. This allows you to design a display album tailored to suit your own brand and price point. If you are new to albums and are not sure how to design an album, or don't want to invest in an album design software, then we can design the album for you at a very low cost. Details on our design service or design software can be found on our Album Design webpage.
Use the coupon code SAMPLE30 when you place your order online for your discount to apply. Make sure you are also receiving our email newsletters and follow us on our Seldex Pro Insiders Facebook page, as we often run additional special offers throughout the year.
We also highly recommend you invest in material swatches so your clients can see the full range of options available. You can purchase our entire swatch collection in a personalized box or individual collections such as Classic Leather or Linen. Visit our Swatch Collection section to help get your studio started.
