Or, better yet...

 

DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE! A LATE FEE WILL APPLY! 

Nobody likes to spend extra $$$! So do not wait until the very last minute to place your order and SAVE $$$!

THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS ON LATE FEES!

 

WHY DO WE CHARGE A LATE FEE?

Simple. We have a printer deadline that we need to respect. We need to MAKE that deadline. If all ad page orders come in late, or at the very last minute, we will NOT have our books ready on time. No printer will wait for us. We also want to make sure that the ENTIRE Program Book is designed properly and ON TIME. The more time we have to work on your ad page, the better the results. Plus, we also like to sleep every once in a while. :)

 

Please do submit your files as soon as possible so that we are not forced to spend countless sleepless nights trying to finish the book on time! :) Having said that, we do understand that sometimes life happens, and that is why we offer the "LATE FEE" option.

IMPORTANT NOTES, TIPS & RECOMMENDATIONS

PLEASE READ IN FULL!

 

A NOTE ON HIGH RESOLUTION ("Hi-Res") PHOTOS

 

• NO LOW RESOLUTION IMAGES!

We want to make sure your Ad looks great once printed! But for that, we need a *high resolution* photo file (and one *without* any photographer "watermarks" or super-imposed logos). 

How to retrieve the original, hi-res file? Easy! 

Your photographer should have this file, or it could have been provided to you on a CD or a download link

(for example, a Dropbox link... if so, please do share that link with us). 

Please also note the following: 

- do not use any non-professional software to crop or alter the original image file in any way. 

- please use a desktop computer instead of a phone when submitting the photo 

 

- Do *NOT* take a "screenshot" of the photo with your phone

- if using a desktop or laptop computer is not possible, please always select "actual size" or "large" when sending the file and never "small" or "medium".

- in all cases, please do not "copy and paste" the photo to the body of the e-mail message, but add it as an attachment instead.

 

- If you have a download  link provided to you by your photographer, please share that link with us. 

CHOICES, CHOICES...

Please note: due to the fact that the photo selection for an ad page is a very personal one, we kindly ask that you choose the image you'd like to use on your ad page yourself and that you ensure that you send us the ***correct*** image file. We are always happy to offer our advise and recommendation in the event that you are not sure what photo to use, but it's important that YOU are 100% happy with the photo you choose for your ad page!

 

MAKE SURE YOU SEND US THE CORRECT PHOTO!

The photo determines the entire lay-out and design of your ad page, so please do note that if you change your mind and decide to use a different photo after-the-fact (after the page has been designed using the photo originally submitted by you), a new order would be required. We can *not* change the photo once an ad page has been designed. Please do keep this in mind and always ensure you send us the correct image file.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

By submitting your photo/s of choice via e-mail to us, you authorize us to use said photo/s for the purposes of creating your ad page. You also assume full responsibility for the use of the photo/s. We assume that the photo/s have been purchased by you from your photographer or photography business of choice. We also assume that by submitting the photo/s to us, you have previously received and signed the proper Release Form (provided to you by said business) that allows you to use the photo/s in any way you choose. We are not responsible nor liable for the misuse of the photo/s on your part in any way, shape or form. We will of course give full and proper credit to the photographer of your choice, as indicated by you when you fill out the form above. If the "Photographer Credit" line is left empty by you in the form above, we also assume you have full ownership of said photo/s and are free to use it/them in any way, shape or form.
