ALBUM DESIGN

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

FILE PREPARATION

Before you upload your files please be sure to read carefully through our File Preparation webpage.  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!

File upload

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

IMPORTANT
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. 

TEMPLATES

ou will need to use our Photoshop templates to create specific items for your album.

Album cover design - customised embossing die

Please make sure to read our Custom embossing die design guide before you start designing.

FILE UPLOAD

Once you have designed your Portrait Book, you will need to upload your files to these specifications - 

All album pages must be double page spreads.
File format:  JPEG
Colour space:   ADOBE RGB (1998) or sRGB
Pixels per inch:  300dpi

We DO NOT check customer files for accuracy.  Your files should be colour corrected, correctly cropped and ready for printing. This is your responsibility.  If you are a first time user we highly recommend you visit our File Preparation page for details on how to prepare your files.

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!

Disclaimer

Aspect ratio must correspond to specified print size otherwise your print will come back the incorrect size.  Seldex will not be responsible for incorrectly cropped/sized files or prints resulting from this.

Studio samples

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.
