Hi Deborah!

I'll answer your questions in the format that you have asked them (:

1. To upload a PDF made in Apple iPhoto, locate the "Create" tab in our Navigation Bar" (at the top of the page)
Hove your mouse over "Create" and then click "Upload PDF" from the dropdown menu that appears.
Follow the instructions on that page to upload your PDF and you're done!

2. Once you upload your PDFs to our site, you can go to your Bookstore via the "Buy Now" button to see pricing for all of the products that your project can be purchased as! Alternatively, you can also get a Quote in our Product Catalog. Simply hover your mouse over the "Products" tab in our Navigation Bar above and select "Price Catalog" from the dropdown menu. Use the Quick Quote Tool (in blue on that page) to enter your page count and quantity to see updated pricing for all products (:
3. Our software is set up to decipher as best as possible how the book was create. We extract the Covers as they are and place the pages as they were designed. If you have questions once your file is uploaded, just email us at or hop on Live Chat and we'd be happy to take a look at your book (:

Die Cut

What does die-cut cover mean? Do the pages lay flat in this type?

Re: Die Cut

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

A Die-Cut book is a Hardcover book that is wrapped in a material (such as Linen or Leather) with a hole in the center of the front cover. This hole shows the Cover image through it!

If you have any other questions, just let us know (:

Adding pages

by jeniedeck, 07 Dec 2017 (01:00 UTC)
I am unclear what the minimum number of pages is. I completed my project and deleted blank pages, when I tried to order the book it appears there are no options. A note came up that I may need to add more pages - so I have 2 questions:
How does one add more pages?
Where is the minimum number of pages for books specified?
Thanks for your help!

Re: Adding pages

by MJ, 05 Jan 2018 (21:37 UTC)
Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

The minimum page count will depend on the specific product you're wanting to order. Many of our books require at least 20 pages, however we do have some that require less! You can find information on each product here: If you have other questions on a specific product, feel free to email or chat in and we can assist.

To add more pages in the Online Design, simply click the icon that looks like a piece of paper with a plus sign on it. You'll find this in the left hand panel. Additionally, to add several new pages, click "Reorder" in the left panel and then click "Add Multiple Pages."

Warm Regards,

Embedded fonts?

by Alice Coleman, 09 Nov 2017 (22:29 UTC)
Hi! I wrote a book in Word, printed it, illustrated it, scanned it, and made a PDF. When I try to upload it, I'm told the fonts must be embedded. At this point, the fonts are more like illustrations. Is there any way around this? Thanks for your help.

Re: Embedded fonts?

by MJ, 22 Nov 2017 (18:29 UTC)
Hi Alice!

Unfortunately, there is no way around embedding the fonts into a document. The printer itself requires all fonts to be embedded as it is not equipped with pre-set fonts. What this means is that if we were to send a document to the printer without all of the fonts embedded, parts of the project would likely not be printed and there could likely be giant blanks throughout the document.

When exporting your PDF out of whatever program you're using, there should be a checkbox option stating to embed fonts. If you're not seeing this as an option, you may want to run your PDF through a converter such as FoxIt, which should be able to get those fonts embedded into your document for you (:

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at

Warm Regards,
