Reproduce old scrapbooks

by alliehop, 05 Jan 2017 (14:15 UTC)
I am trying to turn my old 3 ring binder 8.5x11 scrapbooks into new hard cover books. I am scanning in my pages and pulling them into the new book but it looks like the edge will be cropped off. How do I shrink my image to fit? I don't mind if there is a white border on the page.

Hi alliehop,
how did your old scrapbook project turn out? I am about to embark on the same project and am wondering how other people have fared.

How do I create a plain portrait brochure folder / cover in 8.5x11 size

What I need is a cover, a back page and a full spread photo across the inside - like a portrait 85.x11 size folding card?

Bleed question

by Dave Buchwald, 16 Nov 2012 (03:36 UTC)
I'm a photographer, and I'm only somewhat acquainted with InDesign and printing. I'm laying out a 8.5x11 hard cover book. What should I have my Top, Bottom, Inside, and Outside bleed set to? Right not I have .125" for each, making it a total of .25" extra in height and width. Is this right? Secondly can you tell me what the approximate spine thickness would be for 200 pages in both Express Printing and Premium Printing?

Thanks so much

Volume/Bulk Pricing Options

by Eric Ehrhardt, 10 Nov 2012 (10:49 UTC)
RE: Hardbound Portrait 8.5x11 Imagewrap (250p)

It is easy to figure the $75+$14.99=$90 total standard one-off cost for this format in 250 pages, but unlike most other Providers, I cannot find a way to estimate bulk pricing prior to committing to the project. What are your break points for quantity (200-2,000), or would any quantity pricing inquiries require contacting Customer Service directly?

Re: Volume/Bulk Pricing Options

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

You can view all the products that we offer here at our Product Catalog: http://www.prestophoto.com/wiki/Catalog

We have created a Quick Book Quote that is available to you on this page. This automatically calculates the bulk discount into the the price quote!

All you will need to do is enter in the amount of pages that are in your project, as well as the number of copies of the project you will order.

Then look below, select the appropriate green ratio tab for the product you need, find the binding type and paper type combination that are interested in, and the price quote will be located there for you on the right.

(Note the price - per page will not show a change - to find the amount saved you will need to divide bulk price total that is given to you by the amount of copies you are ordering. Then compare that to the cost of a single book.)

This is a great tool because it allows you to try different combinations in order to find the product and price that best fits your needs!

Hello! So the cost for a Custom Imagewrap Hardcover of 100 pages is about $45.00? I imagine this is full color, right?


Re: Cost

by PrestoPhoto Support, 12 Sep 2012 (19:37 UTC)

Yes, the books are full color unless otherwise stated!

Let us know if you have any further questions.
