8.5x11 Scrapbook

I want to create an 8.5x11 scrapbook on your site. Is that possible? Also, I have my pages finished to your specs, but I need to know how to upload them to your site. Any help would be appreciated.

greetings from PrestoPhoto and thank you for your interest.

I think you could upload one of two ways — 1) zipping your images in a folder or uploading via FTP.

Here is a link to our page about zipping and uploading http://www.prestophoto.com/wiki/index.php?structure_id=412

We prefer one complete PDF or separate .jpg files. We recommend your images be at 300 dpi.

For all our trim sizes we recommend you make the cover images as well as the interior page images 1/4" larger than your book size. For example if you plan to create an 8.5x11 book the cover image as well as interior pages would be 8.75x11.25 (at 300 dpi).

Most importantly, keep all important items (people, heads, text,borders) away from the outer 1/2" on all sides.

Here is a page that may help

We trim 1/8" on all sides and just keep in mind an 1/8" is a greater percentage of the book for our mini books than it is for say an 8.5x11 book. In other words 1/8" is a greater percentage of 5" than it is of 8.5". Does that make sense?

If you have other questions or if I missed something let me know and I'll do my best to help.
