Important Tips & Tricks for the RAD Base photo-books:
Only the small 10 x 10 have a production-number printed on the backside as you can see in the picture below, all other RAD Base Albums come without a bar code on the cover and last page!
We strongly advise you to avoid dark pictures on the cover, please use bright pictures and light colours instead! The Rad Base photo-books have a very nice soft touch matte cover. This special cover is one of the reasons that these books are different from your normal „consumer book“. But please remember that the combination of a matte cover and black/dark colours close to the spine is a very bad idea!
Sooner or later the protecting outer sheet will show some wear, small air bubbles will show. These result in white marks on the spine. When the cover is dark it is easy to spot the problem, when you use light colours instead it is very hard to notice.
We are not replacing books if this defect shows up, because the problem will reoccur.
Here is a creative example how to design a nice cover:
Be careful not to over-sharpen the pictures which you intend to use in your photo-book! The developing machines are tuned in to produce crisp pictures and it is very easy that you over-sharpen your pictures. This is an essential rule that applies to all traditionally developed books and is especially true for pictures taken with high ISO!
Even if no information is lost in the gutter, we recommend you not to place any faces – especially no eyes – exactly in the fold.
