8.5x8.5 Photo Book

Let your imagination run wild with the fully customizable cover!

Now available in Photo Lustre Paper!

8.5"x8.5's are available in 2 product configurations:

Imagewrap Hardcover


Product Photo

Our imagewrap photo books are constructed using the highest quality pre-cut imagewrap boards and also are bound on a computer-controlled adhesive binding machine. The casebound binding service offers a spine lining sheet which is applied inside the front and back cover and secures the fold over of the cover sheet. This is called the end-leaf. Covers are laminated and pages are hot-glued to the cover, which again is ideal for all of our on-demand products.

The imagewrap cover is recommended to hold between 24 and 300 pages, but is capable of up to 400 pages. Production time is between 4-10 business days and available ship methods are USPS or UPS. Here is a picture of binding.

If you are uploading single images (layouts) to a photo gallery and using the Online Book Designer, you can upload any size square image. Just try to make it as close to 12"x12" (or your preferred book size) as possible and the software will do the rest for you.

Our softcover books are built to impress with laminated covers that make colors pop and full-bleed images available on every page (and they're all acid-free, by the way).

If you are uploading single images (layouts) to a photo gallery and using the Online Book Designer or Book Machine, you can upload any size square image. Just try to make it as close to 12"x12" (or your preferred book size) as possible and the bookmaking software will do the rest for you.

Hi, when choosing ImageWrap, how can you calculate the Cover/Back size? (I'd like to create my own photobook) Since this is my first book I am designing, do you have any tips I should pay attention to? 300 dpi, CMYK, 3mm margins in every corner. What else?

If you could send me a e-mail as well to ruben@rubencress.com that would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Ruben

Is 160 the max?

I see with pro-binding, you can do slightly bigger books. Is 160 pages the max? (for an 8.5 square hardcover book)

Uploading PDF file

I designed my 8.5x8.5 interior pages as 17x8.5 pages. I saved a Hi-Res PDF and uploaded. When previewing the interior pages that I uploaded, the full spreads (2 sides) are as one page. Is there a way to upload PDF's in a full spread ratio where I do not have to split the pages before creating my PDF file?

Thanks!

Cameron,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto, thank you for your email!

Our system does not allow for any full spread layout uploads. We do however have a great screencast on how to create a 2 page spread: http://www.youtube.com/user/awesomephotobooks?feature=mhee#p/u/3/OFfOzq1_OeE

If you have any further questions please let us know!
