Watch Your Edges

Digital photo products, including StoryBooks and Photo Panels, have production tolerances. At Creative Memories this tolerance is about 1/16″. What this means is that any design element, text or portion of a photo that is within 1/16″ from the edge, either inside or outside, may or may not appear in the final product. Production tolerances may also cause small variations in individual products when multiples are ordered or when the same product is ordered at different times.

To be safe,  I recommend keeping all text and photos at least 1/8″ away from the edge of your project. In addition, check your project carefully within StoryBook Creator (use Trim View) and on the Digital Center before placing your order. Finally, remember that production tolerances may cause the final product to vary slightly from the preview.
