|Albums – You
asked and now we’ve got ‘em!
Flush or bordered mounts - Since the middle of June you have been able to order flush mount albums through our PROS software. Effective July 17 you will be able to order a selection of bordered albums. Whichever style you order, you first layout the album pages in PROS using the Layout Tool and then send the order to Pounds. We color correct each image (if you ask us to) and then print the pages and bind them into albums. Due to the custom manufacturing process involved, please allow 4-5 weeks for flush mount orders. Bordered album orders will take about one week.
PDF’s describing our pricing and a general overview of our flush mount album offering can be found in the Instructional Downloads page inside our website. By the 17th we will have the same information related to the bordered albums on the same page.
All album pages are automatically clear coated to help preserve the pages and either Linen or Fine Pebble texture may be ordered if desired. Gold stamping of the covers is also an option.
Using Layout Tool to create albums - The “Bordered Album Creation” catalog must be selected in order to build bordered album pages. Use the “Flush Mount Album Creation” catalog to create flush mount pages. You can create your pages in Photoshop, flatten them and then order pages in PROS. But we think that many of you will find that using the PROS Layout Tool is somewhat easier to master as well as faster. We encourage you to download and study the Layout Tool User Guide from the Instructional Downloads page of our website. If you are interested in attending a Layout Tool training class at one of our service centers or the Dallas lab please let customer service know. As enough people express an interest classes are scheduled, usually on Mondays.
A word about naming templates and page numbering - When creating and saving templates, it is critical to name or group the templates so that in the future you can identify which templates correspond to which album size (for example, an 8x10 layout will not look acceptable when ordered for a 10x10 print). All layouts contain page numbering options that must be customer selected so that Pounds will know the desired page order within the album. The page numbering options can be selected before adding the layout to the order or they can be selected/modified in the review screen. The unique page numbers should only be selected once per order, i.e. do not add the “Page 3” option to more than one item in the order. The correct quantity of page options is displayed for the respective album size.
Albums - Due to the high material and labor cost involved in producing
albums they are not subject to the PROS samples program. However,
we do offer a one time only discount of 30% off a 24 page 10x10 flush mount
album and 30% off any two page style/size combination bordered mount albums.
To take advantage of this sample discount create the order in PROS and
enter the words “Sample Discount” in the order level comments.
