    Looks like coffee table album is getting common. Personally also working on a project for my school. And personally also a scrapbook addict. Both have different feeling when you look at it. For those artistic ppl, scrapbook is the way! For simple and sleek album, coffeetable album wld be good.

    Hmm... am I making sense here or just distrubting the thread... hee...
    Find me at Claudia.sg and I work at 24seven

    No you're not disturbing. I think for a professional feel, coffetable style is better. Esp occasions such as weddings, corporate events.

    It may seem simple but when you actually get down to it, its not!! Now I really admire some of the work the guys here can do!

    Somethings of importance I learnt:

    1) Size - this will depend on the album but the decision has to be made from the beginning as that will affect -
    2) The Layout. Positioning is so important!! Placment and sequencing is such a chore especially when you have many photos to group together and to make some sense of.
    3) Words - you gotta have some nice fancy words esp if its a wedding. Some nice fonts as well. Now, I'm scouring the net looking for suitable fonts.

    These are just some of my problems now. Still persevering..

    I think its a matter of creating the canvas to the size you want and then just copying and pasting the photos and positioning them into the position you want. Like Stnicholas81 advised, photos should be kept at 300dpi as far as possible for good printing quality.

    Hello,

    do you mean that once we paste the photo and do the layout.. we need to change the photo to 300dpi? I thought it will be printed as normal, why we didn't change it for normal photo printing? do we have to change the color mode to CMYK?

    Some recommendations:

    1) Use acid-free paper

    2) Can try double-side tape rather than glue

    3) Use conventional-size paper becos not so expensive and easier to get

    Layout and design limited only by your imagination.

    Hi stnicholas81! I just went to bras basha today and search around but could not find this shop call simple digital? May i know where is the shop? Do they do magazine style? Have you been there? I went to this shop call Print Direct and got a quotation like, more than 10 A2 size, $15 each, 20 A2 $12 each. However, i think they are using inkjet and their paper is not very thin like magazine style.

    Hi guys ! I been to simple digital and they are pretty friendly and give good advice. They are using hp inkjet printer. Although alittle lose out to photolab prints, but the good thing is they can print any format you like. They also will provide cold lamination but i dont like it as i think it is a little too rough and any idea what are the best lamination? Another problem, i cannot get those magazine style kind of prints, anyone can suggest where else or what kind of prints is that. Definately not inkjet i guess.

    Hi,

    take a look at www.momento.com.au. They provide coffetable printing services and also a free software that helps with layouts. Their samples look good but its not a cheap option. As its in Australia, you'll have to find out if they deliver to Singapore.

    I am not related to them at all, just someone planning to use their services sometime but need to sit down sometime to put it all together.

    Hope this helps,
