Combo Covers for Press Printed Albums

Combo Covers for Press Printed Albums

Love the look and feel of a leather or fabric cover album, but miss the customization and design options of a custom photo cover? Get a new Combo Cover that combines both!

Our new Combo Cover option for Press Printed Albums lets you combine any of our many fabric and leather cover options along with any of our custom photo cover options including lustre or metallic photo paper or fine art or metallic canvas. Select a custom photo for the front of the album cover and allow the leather or fabric to wrap around the spine and the entire back of the album cover. Or, select a custom photo for both the front and back of the album cover allowing the leather or fabric to be an accent along the spine. The leather or fabric of a Combo Cover is stitched to the Custom Photo so you can choose between white or black stitching to complete the Combo Cover look.

Combo Covers are available for all sizes and configurations of Press Printed Albums in ROES. Make sure to click on the Combo Cover picture within the info tab of the Press Printed Album ROES catalog for directions on how to order a Combo Cover. Front and back cover sizing templates are available in our updated free sizing template download as well.

Holiday Tips and Reminders

Here are some tips and reminders to make this holiday season as smooth as possible!

  • Press Printed Card Quantities: Press Printed Cards are ordered in packs of 25. Use the quantity box under Size Options-Style and Quantity of Cards in the lower left panel of ROES to order multiple identical packs of 25 cards. If you want 50 cards, you will order a quantity of 2 in ROES.
  • Press Printed Cards and Safe Lines: The Safe Line in ROES is not the cut line for the cards. The cut happens between the Safe Line and the edge of the file. Anything inside the Safe Line will print on your card. Anything outside the Safe Line may or may not print on your card. Keep this in mind if a border is put on the outside of the Safe Line - it may arrive to you uneven and only printed on some sides.
  • Photographic Greeting Cards (one sided photographic print with an envelope): We strongly recommend separating one sided photo card orders from normal print orders. Orders with both Photographic Greeting Cards and normal prints are scheduled for an extra day in process. If you separate these orders, you should get them both back a day earlier than submitting them together.
  • Sizing Files: It is best to have your files sized correctly for the product that you are ordering. Please use our sizing templates for all press products including cards, books and albums. Refer to our informational PDFs for how to size files for our Gallery Wraps and Float Wraps.
  • Order Instructions: Putting any instructions or notes on your order will delay it by at least one day as it will be sent to Customer Service to review your instructions or notes. Please review your order carefully before submitting it. If you need to expedite your order, contact Customer Service. Do not try to expedite your order through instructions on your order. This will only slow your order down and your instruction may get missed. Only pertinent information to your order should be put in the instructions such as trimming instructions.
  • Review order in ROES: When placing your order in ROES, please be sure to look over all of the items you've ordered in the Review Order Screen before you actually place the order. Make sure you've ordered the correct paper type, the correct finishing services, and the correct quantities. Also check the cost of the order. Make sure it is what you're expecting to pay for the order. Lastly, please remember that our Press Printed Cards come in sets of 25 cards. So if you need 50 cards, you would order a quantity of 2.
  • Drop Shipping an Order: First select the appropriate drop ship method for a USA, Canada or International drop ship. Next, fill out the drop ship address. It is extremely important to fill out the drop ship address fields correctly within the appropriate box. Failure to complete the address correctly can result in the order being delayed and not delivered on the date expected. Also note that separate orders getting drop shipped to the same address cannot be combined. The drop ship fee will apply to each order being drop shipped regardless of the address it is being shipped to.
  • Addresses and Credit Cards: If you haven't placed an order with us in a while, make sure you have your most current shipping address on file with us before you place your order. Also remember to keep your credit card information current so your orders are not delayed! You can update your shipping address and credit card information by logging in to our client website. Log in with your user name and password. On the left side of the screen is a link for "Account Info". Click there and you are able to update your address and your credit card under the Payment Terms section.
