I just received a large expensive book of 35mm photos shot in raw data. I could find no coupon so spent close to 200.00. I am very unhappy with the quality of the photos. The colors are not bright and most photos are dark. I used to do some developing myself, and it is as if the chemicals are old but I understand you do not process this way. I was ordering 6 more but unless you can make amendments, the one book cannot even be used as the one is. It is not representational of the vibrancy of color in the photos of the three weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia. Would you review my book and share thoughts?

I have create a Extra-large Hardcover (13 x 10 in., 33 x 25 cm) photo book using Apeture. It includes a jacket and spine. Total pages with cover and jacket is 142. I know printing thru Apeture nothing would be cut off. Not sure how close with your printing I am allowed for text. I want best photo paper. Is this something you can print? What size would you print? Do you print jackets? Can someone look at pdf to verify noting will get cut off?

Thank you

Custom Cover 12 x12 to use with loose pages?

Do you offer custom printing for scrapbook covers with 3 ring binding to use with loose pages? We already have the pages created but are looking to get a custom printed scrapbook cover printed to finish the scrapbook.
