Bookbound, Gallery, Twin Set designing and ordering options
If you prefer matted albums to magazine style albums but are concerned about the designing limits then you don't need to be concerned. You can order your Bookbound, Gallery or Twin Set album with custom designed mats and we can cut these to your specifications at no extra charge. But, there's always a but, you must use a programme that will allow you to export double page psd files so we can easily get the matt data that is needed to cut your mats.
The best programs we have found are Photojunction, Fundy Album Builder or Pro Select.. The 3 software programmes make it very easy as our album sizes are already listed in the programmes ready for you to start designing. Click here to go to our software page for links to the programme websites.
Once you have designed an album in any of the programmes listed above you will need to use the double page psd files of your album design to create a .dat file that we can use to cut your album mats exactly as you have designed them. You will need to run a simple programme we have created called Seldex Connect to create the .dat file - alternatively you can send the double page psd files to us and we can create the .dat file inhouse.
You can download Seldex Connect and the instruction manuals below if you would like to create the .dat file in your studio.
