Frequently Asked Questions

Design Print & Bind

Design Services available: 3500 Flush, 300 Hingeless Flush, 300 Flush, 8500 Matted, 7500 Matted, 800 Matted, and 700 Matted.

This fluctuates on the season. You could expect one in about a week.

The design department will proof flush albums with the web based platform AlbumExposure. Matted albums are proofed to you via an email with a PDF attachment.

FLUSH MOUNTED
Clean and Neat – Allow 2.1 images per side. Therefore, if you are submitting 80 images, expect your design to be around 38 sides and the billing to reflect such.

Modern – Allow 2.5 images per side. Therefore, if you are submitting 80 images, expect your design to be around 32 sides and the billing to reflect such.
Ultra – Allow 2.5 images per side. Therefore, if you are submitting 80 images, expect your design to be around 32 sides and the billing to reflect such.

MATTED
Since matted albums are priced by the side, we will design to re-tell your story, therefore image count per side will vary.

Since this is a public page, login and refer to the Price List page.

Start off by creating your job folder.

You can create two folders, one “Must Haves” and one “Details.”

When naming your jpgs, you can simply add a three digit sequence number followed by an underscore in front of the original file name. This will prevent you from contaminating the original file name. For example, a new file name would be 001_Your_Original_File_Name.jpg.

Use our easy online order form to place your order.

Dear Friends,

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
