We strive to keep things as simple as possible and we are happy to help you get started on creating a photo album.
Below is a step-by-step explanation of the order process.
01. CREATE A PHOTOBOOK
Before you place an order with Yellow Rebel, you first have to design the photo album. We don't have our own software program, so go ahead and design it yourself in Photoshop, Indesign or Illustrator or make use of these wonderful and, above all, time-saving programs: AlbumStomp, SmartAlbums or Fundy.
If you use one of the latter programs, you can find our templates there (search for: Yellow Rebel). This way you can always be sure that your files are accordance with our delivery specifications.
When it comes to the layout of a photo album, we don't talk about pages but about spreads. The left and right page are supplied as one photo, which we call a spread. A photo album starts and ends with a spread. We can create albums up to a maximum of 50 spreads.
Files should be supplied in jpg sRGB at 300 DPI.
We know how many hours you have spent in front of your computer screen editing the photos. That's why we place high demands on the print quality and do not apply any colour correction or sharpening. We print the photos exactly as you provide them. That's a promise!
02. GET THE RIGHT SPREAD SIZE
Did you use one of our templates in AlbumStomp, SmartAlbums or Fundy Then you don't need to read any further, because your spread size and colour profile are already correct. Did you use Photoshop, Indesign or Illustrator ? Then take a look at the spread sizes that corresponds to the album sizes below.
|Album size (Width x Height)||Spread size (Width x Height)|
|10 x 10 cm||20 x 10 cm|
|15 x 10 cm||30 x 10 cm|
|15 x 15 cm||30 x 15 cm|
|20 x 15 cm||40 x 15 cm|
|15 x 20 cm||30 x 20 cm|
|20 x 20 cm||40 x 20 cm|
|25 x 25 cm||50 x 50 cm|
|30 x 20 cm||60 x 20 cm|
|20 x 30 cm||40 x 30 cm|
|30 x 30 cm||60 x 30 cm|
|30 x 40 cm||60 x 40 cm|
|35 x 25 cm||70 x 50 cm|
|40 x 30 cm||80 x 30 cm|
|35 x 35 cm||70 x 35 cm|
During the design process, please note that we will be cutting approximately 3mm off the supplied spreads. Therefore, do not place anything important within 1 cm of the outer edge. Are you working with white borders? Make sure they are wide enough to leave a nice white border (we recommend at least 1.5 cm).
03. RENAME AND UPLOAD
Is your design ready to send? Great! It's now very important that the spreads are numbered correctly so that they are bound in the right order. It sounds obvious, but it would be a shame to get it wrong, wouldn't it? First, save your files with a project name and then the number. So for example:
Rob-Marloes_001, Rob-Marloes_002, Rob-Marloes_003 and so on.
During the order process you will automatically find the Drag and Drop option to upload your files.
04 ORDER YOUR PHOTO ALBUM
At the touch of a button your order is sent to us and you can expect your photo album delivered at your door within 3 to 4 weeks. Changed your mind? You have 24 hours to cancel your order. After that, you will be charged for the costs incurred at that time.
Would you like the package to go directly to your customer, without the Yellow Rebel logo? Then, choose the White label during checkout and state the customer's address.
