Cover Options

Clients love personalized albums, and nothing is quite like the appearance of photo-wrapped cover. Create a beautiful display piece with a customizable full cover image in the classic textures of silk or canvas. Both styles are treated with a protective coating to ensure a lifetime of active enjoyment.

Simply design your one-of-a-kind cover using our blank Adobe Photoshop templates, then upload the image file with your order. We'll take care of everything else. Download our Image Gallery template kit with instructions; templates include versions sized to match your album project. Please submit your files in ready-to-print condition. All files should be color corrected, 300 PPI, and in .jpg format.

When designing your cover, please keep that in mind that all template guide markings are APPROXIMATE, not exact. DO NOT leave any blank space, and make sure that the spine and fold areas are flexible.

You can enhance the cover of your Seldex Gallery with up to two lines of text in traditional process, metal-die imprinting (debossing). Choose from seven colors of metallic foil or blind stamping, in one of four standard fonts - Contempo, Coronet, Garamond, or Stellar. Contempo uses the same font style as Stellar, but it is set in capital letters and letter spaced. And don't pass up the opportunity to show your studio brand; it can be added to the cover of nearly all Seldex products with a custom, reusable die.

Templates & Downloads

For the Gallery, ensure you name files with the page and side it belongs on (e.g., 001.jpg, 002.jpg). This will ensure your album is mounted in the correct order. If you have chosen mats that have more than one photo per page you will need to create your own version of a collage. Open a blank 9x9" or 12x12" canvas in your image editing software, then place your correctly cropped and sized images (i.e. 5x7" image for a 5x7" opening) in roughly their intended order for your mat choice. Don't worry if the margins between the images is correct, we will trim if necessary. Save your flattened files and upload with your order. All uploaded images should be 300 PPI .jpg format.
