There are a number of different techniques I can call on when designing an album. Please let me know how you feel about the following (or skip this section, and I'll just go with my instincts unless you are a photographer wanting me to design to or develop a "house style", in which case, be very specific, please.)

A reminder of the next steps:

1. Send your high resolution images to me:
a) via Dropbox — share to jane@alacartealbums.com
b) via Google Drive — share to jane@alacartealbums.com
c) on a cd/dvd/thumbdrive to A La Carte Albums, 12345 Lake City Way NE #369, Seattle, WA 98125 (thumbdrives will be returned)

2. In 1-3 business weeks from receipt of images and deposit, you will receive a link to your design for review and approval. Up to 8 side changes are included with the design fee; extensive changes may incur additional charges.

3. Once you have approved the design and paid at least 50% of the balance of the album fee, I will put your album into physical production

4. When it is finished, your album/book will be shipped to you. (Snohomish County/Greater Seattle area clients may request a hand-off rather than shipping, and I’m happy to do in-person meetings to look at swatches and discuss design options.)

High-resolution files of any improved versions of all of your images will be also be made available to you.
