Page and printing specs
Page and printing options for third-party design
We offer Silver Halide (traditional photographic), 6-colour Offset and Fine Art (inkjet) printing. For technical reasons the selection of products and pages varies for each print option, as do specifications for the files we require to print your order (see below).
In Panorama albums the prints are creased, not cut, at the spine.
In Classic Flush albums and medium Q Books, the prints are cut at the spine.
Q-Book Lights are perfect bound.
Tip: Whether creased or cut, it’s good practice in all albums to keep important content away from the spine.
Across its range, Queensberry offers products with light, medium and heavy pages.
Light: (Q Books); Offset printing only.
Medium: (Q-Books, Panorama Flush); Silver Halide or Fine Art printing.
Heavy: (Pano Flush, Classic Flush); Silver Halide or Offset printing.
Tip: The maximum number of pages per book or album varies depending on the weight (see the specification table below).
Tip: Smart Albums and Fundy software contain Queensberry resources. You should not need to set the page dimensions yourself.
The correct technical specifications for your page layout files
The technical specifications of your layout files will depend on your choice of page type (eg
Please locate the correct combination in the table below and apply them when you export your page layout files for printing.
- In Panorama albums prints are creased, not cut, at the spine. Classic Flush and Q-Book Medium are cut; Q-Book Lights are perfect bound. Always keep important content away from the spine.
- In Flushmounts we normally leave the left side of Layout 1 and right side of the last layout blank. These can be printed if you prefer, but in that case the album can't include a title page.
- JPG files are preferred where possible, but PSDs are mandatory if we are to colour correct the images. (Warning: PSDs can be very large!)
- After uploading to Workspace, please check that the layouts are in the order they should appear in the album. If not, drag them into the correct position.
- Unless we are colour correcting, to ensure reliable, high quality prints you should always soft proof your files before uploading them.
- Colour space: sRGB is acceptable, but Adobe 1998 is preferred because of its wider colour gamut.
