Design guidelines
For preparing your file we recommend using our template.

For preparing your file we recommend using our template. This is the best way to deliver your file perfectly.

Double page printing

The first interior page is always printed on the right. This means that double page printing e.g. images or text across both pages is not possible on this first page. For the rest of the booklet, interior pages are printed left to right and double page printing is possible.

Save the file for booklets as multi-page PDF document.

Save the file for booklets not as spreads, but as multi-page PDF document, starting with the cover page (NOTE: saving as a multi-page PDF means 1 PDF file with multiple pages inside). Delete empty unnecessary pages from the file with the final save. Desired blank pages have to stay in the file.

Add 3 mm bleed.

To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.

Keep 15 mm safety margin for the cover

Keep all important text and images at least 15 mm away from the edge of the finished size.

Keep 4 mm safety margin.

Keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.

Resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.

Use CMYK as the colour mode.

Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2). If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.

Frequently asked questions
What is this product? And what can I use it for?
  • Square Medium Photo Book are books with a hard cover and pages inside, printed with your photos. The covers are made of sturdy and durable grey cardboard that are later covered with printed photo paper. Our hardback books are available in various sizes, materials and numbers of pages! They are the ideal personal gift for friends and family.

Which production techniques do we use?
  • For the production of Square Medium Photo Book , we use the following technique(s):

  • Digital printing: Uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to a large home printer, and is cheaper than Litho printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, fewer components involved, and no ink drying time necessary.

Is the amount of pages equal to the amount of paper sheets?
  • No. This is because the pages are folded and printed on both sides. A sheet of paper gets folded in the middle so it covers 4 pages (2 on the front and 2 on the back). For instance, when you choose an A4 size brochure with 8 pages, we print two A3 sheets (two times as big as A4) and fold them in half, which results in a total of 8 pages.

I can't find the Square Medium Photo Book I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
  • If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. We aim to get back to you within 2 working days.

What kind of photos do you recommend I choose for my photo book?

When choosing photos for your Square Medium Photo Book , make sure to choose photos that are interesting and meaningful to you, and that capture important moments or events in your life. It's important to select high-quality images that are clear, well-lit, and in focus. In case the quality is too low, our editor will notify you and recommend you to replace it with a higher quality photo.

It's also important to consider the overall aesthetic of your photobook. Mix up the photos with a combination of candid shots, portraits, landscapes, and close-ups to create a dynamic and interesting photobook.

Do you have any questions? Our customer service team is happy to help!

What type of files can I upload for my photobook?

Our editor accepts JPG and PNG formats for photos. PDF is not supported at this time, but if you have a PDF of your photo, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team. They will be more than happy to assist you in converting the PDF to a supported format, such as JPG or PNG.

Do I need to add anything to my photos to make my photo book print-ready?

All you need to do is upload your pictures and put them on the page you want! We already account for any potential cutting deviations by automatically adding a white border, known as bleed, around your photo within the editor. This ensures that your photos will be printed correctly, so you can relax and enjoy the process.

Will the colours in my photo book look just like the colours on my screen?

A digital photo will always look different from a printed photo because the colours are processed differently. Phone and camera photos are created in the RGB colour mode, which doesn't print well and can appear very dark. We convert RGB files to the CMYK colour mode, which is used by printers and produces a more accurate result. However, colours may not match exactly and can vary by up to 10%.

Can I make collages with multiple photos for my photo book using the editor?

Yes, it's possible to make collages with multiple photos for your photo book using the editor. You can even create collages on individual pages of your photo book.

Can I add text to my photo book?

Yes, you can add text to your photos in the editor when creating your photo book. Just click on the menu (the three dots), select "add text," type the text you want, and choose a font. The selected font will be used for printing. This makes it easy to add captions or other text to your photo book.

Is it possible to change the picture I initially chose for a different one in the editor?

Yes, you can! If you select a photo, you can easily delete it and add a new one. If you added photos but want to start again, simply go to the overview of projects, select one and click delete.

What is the fastest possible turnaround for Square Medium Photo Book ?

The standard turnaround for Square Medium Photo Book is 10 working days. In the cart you can choose a faster turnaround at an additional cost.

Which carriers are used for the delivery of my photo book?

We use several carriers to deliver your Square Medium Photo Book , including UPS, DPD, DHL, and our own courier service. The specific carrier we use depends on factors such as the size and quantity of the product, as well as the turnaround time. We strive to use the most reliable carriers.

If your material type, weight, quantity, size or other specification is not listed, you can request a quotation. We will send you an offer within 1 working day. Depending on the complexity, this may take a bit longer.

What can I expect to see In my photo book?
