How many pages can my Photobook have?
Due to our binding process and readymade templates, each book must have a minimum of 20 pages (double sided). If a book has less than 20 pages, we will add blank pages until the page count minimum has been reached. This is done to retain the binding's integrity and strength. Currently our photo books can have a maximum of 100 pages.
What format should my photos be in?
Photos need to be in .jpg format. For best print quality, photos should be at least 4MB at 300 dpi. The maximum file size at this time is 10MB.
