Designs are sent off to print and delivered around two weeks.

That's it, nice and simple. Now to treasure your book forever!
There are a few different ways of sending photos. Here are some tips:
This is an online computer file transfer for large files. Simply drag your compressed folder of photos from your computer to the WeTransfer screen. Enter your email address and Ella's (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any message and click 'transfer'. Make sure the transfer is 100% complete before closing down the web browser. Ella will then have a folder of your photos ready to use.
This is an online storage space for your photos. Simply create a folder with all your photos for your book. When you are ready click 'share' the folder to her email (email@example.com). Ella will then be able to see that folder and download your photo from there.
If you have photos from a photo shoot or wedding you can send a link from a photographers archive. Ella will most likely need a password to get into but then she can download from there.
If you have tried the above and feel like your tech savvy side has let you down, fear not! There is still the old fashioned way of simply popping your memory stick in the post! Nice and easy.
WILL YOU EDIT MY PHOTOS?
Yes, part of the quote is to give your photos a general edit, brightening and sharpening for print. If I feel your photos need a lot of editing I will just charge extra for time which we will agree on beforehand. However, a little touch up is usually fine. If you have wedding photos already edited I won't need to do too much.
CAN I ADD IN ANY TEXT?
Yes, dates, names, memories, poems, contents, recipes! Whatever you want your book to say. If there is a lot of text, I will have to bear in mind extra design time. We can work together to discuss the layout.
IS AN ILLUSTRATION INCLUDED?
Yes, on the first page of your book I will include a personalised illustration. Let me know if you have something in mind or I will choose something from your photos to illustrate of you are not sure.
WILL I SEE THE DESIGN BEFORE IT'S PRINTED?
Absolutely. Firstly, I will send over 3 cover designs to choose from. Secondly, I will send over the internal designs for you to see. At this point, amendments can be made. I include one round of amendments in the quote.
HOW DO I PAY?
Through BACS or Paypal. My details are on the invoice.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
I am based in Clapham Junction, London however I am also in Cheltenham, Cotswolds.
CAN I USE PHOTOS FROM SOCIAL MEDIA?
I'm afraid any photo taken from social media is too low res for print. I need your original high res photos from your camera, phone or scanned in. If you want to check, please feel free to email me and I can check if yours are good enough quality by just sending a couple to test.
HOW LONG DOES A BOOK TAKE?
Including design hours and print around 3 weeks. Please let me know beforehand if you would like a book printed in time for a certain date!
If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me.
