When I order spiral binding on individual proofs, do you spiral on the long or short side?

  Individual proofs are bound on the long side.

What is the maximum number of proofs that can be spiraled together?

100 is the maximum number of proofs per spiral bound book.

What is the difference between studio and lab color?

Studio Color means we’ll print your photos without any color correction on our end.

Can I combine studio and lab color on one order?

Since they are two separate tabs, they cannot be combined on the same order.

How can I order a book with no cover?

In the ordering software, under the Covers tab, select either the top bound or side bound no cover option.
