Toolkit: Shutterfly 8×11

A while back, Shutterfly changed their 8×11 (Classic) book size to add more bleed. I finally found time to update my toolkit and it’s been re-released. It’s on sale for one week for just $2 to allow anyone who wants to upgrade to get it at the special pricing. There is just one caveat. And that is Shutterfly cannot tell me how the changes affect their “peek-a-boo” window for this book size. I did my best and added the extra bleed the same way I did it on the other pages. However, please know that this is my best guess and not official. I do not claim it is accurate. It’s always a good idea to take special care looking at your proofs when creating your books. And, if possible, leave some extra room in your design for any discrepancies.

If you have any questions, let me know! Here’s what’s included in the 8×11 Toolkit:

Version 2b: NEWLY UPDATED 09-11. This 8×11 size book was changed by Shutterlfy in 06-11. This download includes new 8×11 templates. (See note on Peek-a-boo template below.)
Version 2.0: NEWLY UPDATED 10-09 TO INCLUDE NEW HARDCOVER OPTION.

These innovative products by Wendyzine Scraps have been designed to help you design and prepare your 8×11 (formerly Classic) Shutterfly Photo Books according to Shutterfly’s specificatons.

INCLUDES:
Blank layered 11×8.5 page templates in PSD and TIF format
Blank layered template for new hardcover option in PSD and TIF format
8×11 (Classic) Action for resizing your 11×8.5 layered Photoshop file to Shutterfly’s specs
Square Action for placing square layouts onto a Classic photo book page, with credits or journaling
Peek-a-boo template (shows through optional Die Cut Window) in PSD and TIF format (NOTE: This template is my best guess. Shutterfly could not supply the actual specs. “As for the die cut cover specs, we do not have those at this time. Our All New Custom Path is a new product for us and we are working on focusing the slight variations that may occur with our new method to be sure that your image would appear in the window of the book cover.”)

NOTE: These products have been tested on PSCS2-5, PSE6-9. This product is available in a Personal/Scrap-4-Hire Use version as well as a Professional/Designer Use version. If you purchase the Professional/Designer Use version, you may use these items in the creation of products you sell. You may NOT sell this product AS IS, or as a kit containing only these items. A Professional/Designer Use TOU will be emailed to you, so be sure your profile is up to date.

PHOTOBOOK NOT INCLUDED, BUT CAN BE ORDERED FROM SHUTTERFLY.COM.
