|As you all already know, for the last two years, I’ve been busily churning out MyPublisher photo books. I’ve been staying caught up on recent photos and also working backwards to get caught up.
So of course, I said yes because I dearly love to work with companies I’ve faithfully patronized.
1. Choose Photo Finish Covers
(So much easier to organize the books this way!)
And I am all about durability.
2. Make Your Own Cover Labels
To make one like the book on the left, though, you’ll need to use some other photo editing software.
(I downloaded a free Disney font for that cover.)
(Do you like how I put “Disney 2014”? As though we’ve gone more than 0 other times. Ha.)
3. Don’t Center Spine Text
When I first started using photo covers, I centered my spine text.
For some reason that made sense to me.
I’m kind of annoyed with myself for not doing this right away. Oh well.
At least you can learn from my mistakes!
4. Choose Neutral, Non-White Background Colors
Plus, patterns have a tendency to look pretty dated in short order, so I say stick with the solids.
Your future self will thank you.
5. Fill the Page
Also, a full page photo every now and then is better than page after page of many small photos.
6. Put text on photos
I really love the look of this when I want to add text to a page.
7. Choose Super Gloss Printing
Are you inspired to make a book??
Good, because five of you are going to win a free one!
(And as long as MyPublisher ships to your country, you can enter.)
That’s a $56.98 value, so this is pretty stinking awesome.
