We print from JPEG format files. Lossless or highest quality JPEG compressions are more than adequate for high quality printing.

Save your 300 dpi files in sRGB color space in 8-bit color, not 16-bit, to achieve the best print results. 

Please do NOT embed any soft proofing ICC printing profiles.   

No CMYK, Grayscale, RAW, PSD or LZW compressed files, and if you work in layers, be sure to flatten the file and remove any extra channels before sending.

  • We need to trim your prints to make the album flush and just exactly perfect.
  • Canvas size should be 100%. (Example: For a 10 x 10 album, give us exactly 10 x 10 jpegs for your single sides and exactly 10 x 20 jpegs for your spreads. Do Not add bleed).
Trim Specs for Non Gilded Albums
We recommend at least 1/2″ safe zone when floating images.
We trim approximately 1/8″ off all four sides of an open spread. 
We trim nothing from the gutter sides (middle line) if you choose Split Edition.
Trim Specs for Gilded Albums
We recommend at least 5/8″ safe zone when floating images.
We trim approximately 3/16″ off all four sides of an open spread. 
We trim nothing from the gutter sides (middle line) if you choose Split Edition.

Recommended PhotoShop Guides for Non-Gilded Albums and Gilded Albums are shown below:


For the 300 Flush Style Album, your are generally sending us single side files and only sending spreads when choosing a panorama.

This album usually starts on the “Right Side with a Single Side”. It is always called #1.

Note: Right side pages are always odd numbers. Left side pages are always even numbers.

You do have two other first page options:

1- “Invitation Page”

2- “Side # 1 Blank-First Image on Side#2”

When starting on the “Right Side with a Single Side” – Number you files 01.jpg through how many files you have.

When starting with – “Invitation Page” or “Side # 1 Blank-First Image on Side#2” – Number you files 02.jpg through how many files you have.

If you have any panoramas, they must have to numbers for the left side and right side. It will always be an even_odd number such as 12_13.jpg

We prefer just the numbers. Long file names such as “01_Amy_Brian_Wedding_November_28.jpg” make it difficult for us to create contact sheets for your album order.

Example below shows how to name your files when staring on the “Right Side with a Single Side” page and includes two panoramas. Total number of files is 18. Total side count is 20 because of the two panoramas.

This time honored flush style album harkens all the way back to our humble beginnings.

First and foremost, we wish you and your loved ones good health and safe keeping.
As you know, the evolving nature of the COVID-19 situation is disrupting businesses around the world. The State of New York has issued a mandate that legally requires us to keep 100% of our in-plant workforce at home.
We have remote staff that can help you with questions and move new orders to the point of printing. Once the governor allows us to return to our operations, we will pickup the queue right where we’ve left off. 
All ordering systems are live and you can submit your orders, bearing in mind that production times will be longer than usual.
Leather Craftsmen is committed to helping you keep your album revenue stream open. We will get through this unsettling time with you.
Take care of each other out there
